Milwaukee radio station banning Drake music during playoff series
A Milwaukee radio station is putting a temporary ban on Drake’s music as a show of solidarity with the Bucks.
The Bucks are facing the Toronto Raptors in the Eastern Conference Finals, with Game 1 being hosted by the Bucks on Wednesday night. “Riggs & Alley,” two hosts on 103.7 KISS-FM in Milwaukee, shared a video on Tuesday where they announced the temporary ban on Drake music for the series.
MAJOR ANNOUNCEMENT: Until the @Bucks beat the @Raptors – we are hereby taking a break from ALL #DRAKE music. We love us some Drake, but right now – we love the #Bucks more! #BreakFromDrake #FearTheDeer pic.twitter.com/kRAZQnGOWo

The station hosts are calling it a “Break from Drake.”
Why the action? Drake, a famous musician, is from Toronto and has a deep association with the Raptors franchise. He is officially a team ambassador, and the team’s practice facility is named after his OVO brand. Drake is a big trash-talker and has been getting involved in some games.
Milwaukee is breaking out all the stops for the big series, which marks their first conference finals trip since 2001.
