Fresh & Direct, Milwaukee’s only independent & old school hip hop radio show on 91.7FM WMSE, it airs every Tuesday night from 9 to Midnight. Hosted by DJ Loop, the show features the best of independent & old school hip hop and its sub-genres. It also shines a light on emerging talent, underrepresented artists, community building and discusses the importance of inspiring; mentoring; supporting Mke’s underserved creative youth through its interview series at the top of the 10 o’clock hour.
Tuesday nights on WMSE have been a Milwaukee hip hop mainstay since 90s. This slot has been home to the Late Night Hype Show, the Mad Kids and Those Hip Hop Guys. Building on that legacy, Fresh & Direct represents a new generation keeping the spirit of hip hop alive and adding their own spin on it.
