Nearly every Wednesday at noon, Ryan Schleicher of WMSE, Evan Rytlewski of the Shepherd Express, and Matt Wild of The 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.
This week on The Disclaimer (which now has its own Facebook page), Ryan, Evan, and Matt decide that a conversation about the Milwaukee Bucks should probably include an actual Bucks fan. Andy Nelson, Public Relations Manager for Pabst/Riverside/Turner Hall, is just that Bucks fan, and joins the gents for a spirited chat about the Bucks’ lowly attendance numbers, and whether or not tax dollars should be spent on rehabbing the aging BMO Harris Bradley Center. The future of the constantly re-named Delta Center is also discussed, as are the prospects of Milwaukee landing a sweet, sweet Star Trek convention. Per usual, Matt manages to work in a timely Scott Bakula reference, and everyone laughs.
