Every Wednesday at noon, Ryan Schleicher of WMSE, Evan Rytlewski of the Shepherd Express, and Matt Wild of A.V. Club Milwaukee take to the WMSE airwaves to discuss all things Milwaukee. The half-hour fun-fest is called The Disclaimer, so titled because none of the sometimes cranky and ridiculous opinions expressed during the show represent those of the three hosts’ employers. Milwaukee music, Milwaukee art, Milwaukee events, and D.I.Y. lawn care tips are frequently discussed—and rarely agreed upon.
Kicking off this week’s grab-bag episode, Ryan, Evan, and Matt ponder a recent blog from Passion Pit explaining why bands cancel shows. When is it okay? When isn’t it? Next, the Milwaukee Symphony Orchestra’s financial woes are discussed, along with ways the struggling organization could reach out to new donors. Finally, Matt explains why the government shutdown is hurting local craft breweries, and Evan reveals why he doesn’t like DIY swing sets under creepy bridges.
