Milwaukee Talks: FM 102.1 music director Michelle Rutkowski

Quick impressions from a Lollapalooza first-timer

Published Aug. 8, 2011

Saturday morning, I made the quick trip down to Chicago for my first-ever (and the 20th annual) Lollapalooza show. I wasn't there all that long, since I was primarily tasked with helping out our friends from FM 102.1, who invited me, but I certainly lingered long enough to make a few impressions.
