Kickstarted – The next step for WMSE
Beginning last October, WMSE 91.7 FM ran a Kickstarter project with the goal of raising $30,000 in two months. Just before Christmas, the station met its goal and will be able to keep live music on the Milwaukee airwaves for the foreseeable future.
Like many Kickstarter projects, WMSE’s had a specific target, which was to raise funds for new equipment to broadcast and record live music at their downtown studio. I sat down with Ryan Schleicher and Billy Cicerelli of WMSE to talk about the successful campaign and to find out what’s in store for the radio station in 2012 now that the goal has been met.
“Backstage with Mark Metcalf” is recorded at the ThirdCoast Digest office at the Grand Avenue Mall.
