Every Wednesday at noon, Ryan Schleicher, Evan Rytlewski, and 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.
With Ryan out for the week, Evan and Matt dig into a boatload of Milwaukee (and Wisconsin) news. First up, the long-beleaguered Shops of Grand Avenue. The new name (“The Avenue”)! The new food hall (“3rd Street Market Hall”)! The apparent end of the Leonard Bearstein Symphony Orchestra! Next up, the Marcus Center for the Performing Arts. The redesign! The “great lawn”! The “Black Forest”? Finally, Evan ponders the annual Eaux Claires festival and its just-announced 2019 hiatus.
