The WLUM-FM 102.1 staff will get out of the studio this weekend to broadcast live from the Lollapalooza 2014 music festival in Chicago.
The station will have live coverage on the radio and online at fm1021milwaukee.com. Additional Lollaplaooza content will be available on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram from 2 p.m. Friday to the end of the day on Sunday. Coverage on Saturday and Sunday will start around noon each day.
FM 102/1 will be joined on air and online by Cage the Elephant, Foster the People, Fitz & the Tantrums, Broken Bells, Interpol, Grouplove, Young the Giant, Chvrches, Phantogram, and other acts from the music festival.
STATE FAIR: It has been a number of years back when Journal Communications ran a studio from the grounds, and other local TV stations would offer live programs from the fairgrounds in West Allis. I remember watching a broadcast of WISN-TV’s "Howard and Rosemary" back in the late 1970s.
If you are interested in watching live broadcasts, or just live reports from the grounds, many of the Milwaukee area radio and TV stations will be on the grounds during the Wisconsin State Fair, which started today.
