As the Brewers face off against the Philadelphia Phillies today in the first round of the playoffs, 88Nine RadioMilwaukee will be doing its own battle against the City of Brotherly Love.
88Nine's Scott Mullins has entered a wager with Philly's WXPN. If the Brew Crew wins, it means enough Philly Cheese steak for the 88Nine Staff. If the Phillies win (God forbid), we send them a case of Usinger's finest brats. Scott and WXPN afternoon drive host Jim McGuinn will also be trading Milwaukee Music for Philly Music during their regular on-air check-ins during the series.
The Ultimate Prize for the winner? Getting to program an hour of music for the losing station. Brewers win and 88Nine gets to program an hour of tunes on WXPN during their drive time. Yesterday, after they announced the wager, XPN's McGuinn played a brand new track from Milwaukee's Kings Go Forth, while Mullins played a track from Philadelphia's Dr. Dog.
Tune in tomorrow October 2nd at 3:20pm for the battle royal. In the meantime, Check out these two songs, and let us know which is better Milwaukee's Kings Go Forth or Philly's Dr. Dog.
If you missed the on-air challenge yesterday you can check it out here!
I can't wait to get those cheesesteaks!!!!
Milwaukee's Kings Go Forth - "You're The One"
