WMSE and Dori Zori go way back — 1990, that is. The veteran WMSE DJ (and nearly-five-years-as-WMSE Underwriting Director) has been an integral part of WMSE and the WMSE community, hosting weekly dance parties in WMSE’s Studio A, reaching out to local businesses and partnering them with the Mighty 91 as well as participating and DJing up a storm at WMSE events. This lady’s shoes will be impossible to fill and needless to say, she will be missed.
To send Dori and The Girlina Show off in fine style, tune into her show right now (all Dori fans know that it runs until 3 p.m. CST today) — she’s giving it up for all the ladies, spinning an all-girls show, featuring Bjork, Le Tigre, Portishead and more. Ask Dori what the first artist she played as a WMSE DJ and she’ll say it was probably Blondie. Sounds right to us! What could be better than honoring the tradition with a salute to her favorite female artists? Stream the final Girlina Show via WMSE.org or listen at 91.7 FM. Call with a request (414-799-1917) or to tell Dori you appreciate what she’s done for the Milwaukee music community as part of WMSE over the past twelve-plus years. We’ll miss you!
