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.
Flip on a commercial rock radio station in Milwaukee, and you’ll likely hear music from the ’90s. Even worse, the SAME music from the ’90s. Longtime radio personality Brian Kramp (formerly of WLUM-FM 102.1’s Kramp and Adler) joins The Disclaimer to talk about this curious/nefarious trend, and dishes the dirt on the many problems that plague commercial radio. Is there any hope for stations that continually slash their playlists? Is music from the ’90s simply the new oldies? Can anyone name more than one song from Harvey Danger? (Answers: probably not; yes; Matt can.)
