Introducing for the first time ever the 414 Live Variety Hour. This week we aired our pilot episode of our new late night TV show with a fresh way to showcase the talents that Milwaukee has to offer. Not only do we present never-before-seen performances but we also get to know the artists and personalities in our city on a deeper level through their hidden talents, conversations about music, the city, vulnerabilities and social change.
We wanted to create something that brought us closer to our community, opening up the conversation not exclusively to music, but also to the people themselves. Throughout the Variety Hour you’ll get interviews, performances, how-tos, comedy and surprises that I don’t want to spoil if you haven’t seen the episode. You will also get teasers and trailers of projects that are a part of Radio Milwaukee.
In our pilot episode we share experiences with several artists throughout the city including Orlando Peña, Lex Allen, LUXI and Immortal Girlfriend. We hear stories of social change on the streets of Milwaukee, coping and creating (or not creating) in quarantine, meet surprise guests, shed tears and share laughs.
If you missed the episode, you can watch it in full below or tune in every Thursday at 5:30 p.m. to hear interviews and performances from the 414 Live Variety Hour throughout July.
