VIDEO: Mr. Nice Guy with Ayisha Jaffer
Our Music Director, Ben Slowey, is more than on top of the local music scene. In addition to his work for Breaking And Entering, he also hosts the Mr. Nice Guy podcast, an interview-based show that reaches out to Milwaukeeans for conversations about what motivates them. Many of these shows fittingly involve the local music scene, and we’ll be sharing some of them here as well.
Today, Ben talks to the wonderful Ayisha Jaffer, who was host of the 414 Live Variety Hour at 88Nine Radio Milwaukee for about a year. She’s also a DJ, vocalist for garage punk band Skux, and has worked some wildly interesting jobs in New Zealand and Alaska. They discussed Ayisha’s acquirement of music industry knowledge from a young age, her stint managing Lorde, becoming a bear safety guide and deck hand and park ranger, what Skux is up to, and her determined goal to bridge the Milwaukee music scene together.
