Why Justin Vernon is traveling across Wisconsin to talk about voting

Each Thursday morning on Radio Milwaukee we — the Journal Sentinel’s Piet Levy and 88Nine’s Jordan Lee — talk about the music coming into and the music coming out of Milwaukee on Tap’d In

Wrapping up this week is the online sign up for a very special visit with Justin Vernon. The Bon Iver frontman is traveling across Wisconsin this fall to visit those who feel disenfranchised from voting to have a conversation with them about the importance of voting. He says he didn’t want to sit on the sidelines during this year’s election and felt the need to try and make a difference.

Piet and I discuss the vision behind Vernon’s campaign, which will also feature some new music and a performance on Stephen Colbert’s show, on this week’s episode of Tap’d In below.
