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.
Former WMSE guru Brent Gohde returns to his old stomping grounds to discuss another of his old stomping grounds: the gone-but-not-forgotten Harry W. Schwartz bookshop on Downer Avenue. Gohde’s May The Schwartz Be With You show this Saturday at Turner Hall details his time working for the bookshop in the late ’90s, and the countless artists, musicians, and Milwaukee personalities he encountered there. Gohde gives Ryan and Evan a preview of the show, and Matt briefly fills the group in on his recent close encounter with a Young Professional Week event. Per usual, the true meaning of community and “Weird Al” Yankovic are also discussed.
