Every Wednesday at noon, WMSE’s Ryan Schleicher, Shepherd Express’ Evan Rytlewski, and Milwaukee Record’s Matt Wild take to the WMSE airwaves to discuss all things Milwaukee. This half-hour fun-fest is called The Disclaimer, so named because none of the oft-ridiculous views expressed on the show necessarily reflect the views of the hosts’ employers. Milwaukee music, Milwaukee art, Milwaukee events, and D.I.Y. lawn care tips are frequently discussed—and rarely agreed upon. The Disclaimer: talk radio for the sane.
Milwaukee’s annual Yellow Phone Music Conference aims to be a SXSW-like event stuffed with live shows and (pricey) panel discussions with music industry insiders. But are dreams of being “discovered” at such events better left in the ’90s where they belong? Ryan, Evan, and Matt discuss Yellow Phone (Sept. 4-7) before somehow going off on tangents involving Macaulay Culkin and The Pizza Underground, Taylor Swift and the VMAs, and the awfulness of Har Mar Superstar.
