“Anti-established” in 1981, WMSE 91.7 FM – Frontier Radio has grown into Milwaukee’s truest and longest-standing music radio institution. A financially independent department of Milwaukee School of Engineering (MSOE), WMSE – with a 24-hour free-form format representing every musical genre in one form or another – has been primarily funded by listening supporters and community partners since 1997, genuinely earning the station the motto Community-Powered Independent Radio.
