88Nine Radio Milwaukee’s 414Music.fm launched its new HD2 broadcast radio channel, and mobile and online stream, Tuesday. The station plays at least one Milwaukee artist every hour and supports Milwaukee bands via its weekly on-air 414 Live interview and performance show, and its annual Milwaukee Music Awards.
“Radio Milwaukee is uniquely positioned to program an all-Milwaukee-music channel because of our focus on Milwaukee artists since we first went on air 10 years ago,” Program Director Jordan Lee said. “We’re proud to play all-Milwaukee music because it rivals music from any city in the country. Our playlist ranges from earlier groundbreaking Milwaukee bands to some of today’s top artists. The list of Milwaukee music we’re playing includes the Violent Femmes, Citizen King, Coo Coo Cal, Field Report, Ish Darr, Trapper Schoepp, Naima Adedapo, Vinyl Theater, Willy Porter, GGOOLLDD, WebsterX, Paul Cebar and the late Al Jarreau.”
