Serious metalheads most likely rarely get a chance to hear a wide range riffs, growls and power chords and cymbal chokes on the FM dial. Thanks to WMSE’s Team Metal [Wednesdays, 9 p.m. – 12 a.m.], not only does Milwaukee get the glorious opportunity to crank all of this way up in their cars and on their portable listening things, the entire Internet universe can stream it all online at WMSE.org. The DJs of Team Metal divulge on their gig: “Each week Jason and Ellie prove that is really no other music. To paraphrase the immortal Johnny Hedlund [look it up]…. DEATH [and black and doom and NWoBH and classics and thrash and requests, which can sometimes be suspect] METAL, NO COMPROMISE!!”
Tonight, WMSE is bidding farewell to Team Metal’s stalwart second half, DJ Ellie, as she spins on her final show. Tune in and tell Ellie what a great job she’s done for WMSE, from her days co-hosting with Dathan to her recent stint with Jason. And what is Ellie planning on playing for her last hurrah? “Classics”, she tells us. Expect lots of Slayer, Iron Maiden and the like. Sick.
