TOPIC: Milwaukee’s Greenest Radio Station

Originally built in 1952 as a manufacturing building for J.C. Busch Co. — which manufactured precision machined angles, plates, and other metalwork — 88Nine Radio Milwaukee’s new home was designed by HGA Architects and features barn wood from a dairy barn built in the early 1900s in Sheboygan County. The building features a 2,500 Sf green roof composed of a tray system planted with mixed sedum, and can hold up to 1,500 gallons of rainwater. The station has new studios equipped with the latest technology; sound-proof recording studios for broadcasting, recording and production; a 100-seat performance studio for live performances and events; opportunities for local musicians to meet and collaborate in a physical space.  All with green features!

Don’t miss the fun!
