DISSONANCE Listeners

***UPDATE 2-15-17***

After more than 10 years of documenting the DC punk and underground music scene, Dissonance is going off the air. The building in which Radio CPR has operated has been sold, and the station is being evicted at the end of February. Radio CPR may yet find a new home someday, and this show might return once again in a different form. But for now I'm calling an indefinite hiatus, Fugazi-style. It's been a wonderful decade sharing music and memories with so many amazing artists who call the DC/MD/VA area their home. If anything changes, I will post the news here. Thanks to everyone for listening, it's been a lot of fun. --Mike

===========================

DISSONANCE is a biweekly music and talk show broadcasting Tuesday nights at 9:00 on community station Radio CPR, 101.7 FM in Washington, DC, hosted by Danger Mike.  Each episode features a different guest from the DC music and creative community who serves as guest DJ, picking the show's playlist and answering questions.  New episodes are available for free download here the following Wednesday:

DC and punk rock lost a legend yesterday. John Stabb, singer of Government Issue and the Factory Incident, passed away after a long battle with cancer. 

John was nice enough to come on this show twice, in 2006 and 2008. I was joined by DJ Stereo Faith, and we had two long (nearly 5 hours total) discussions about (first episode) the origins of Government Issue, the Unheard Music Fest, the St. Anselm's Valentine's Day show, and the GI reunion that "will never happen," and (second episode) marriage, cats, growing up in Wheaton, bumming out Jello Biafra with his outfits, his deep love of movies, and the GI reunion that eventually happened.

John also was guest DJ for both shows and picked two great, wide ranging playlists, including a bunch of rare punk covers of and by the Beastie Boys, Naked Raygun, Lillian Furneaux, and of course GI. He was a true original, relentlessly upbeat, kind soul who embodied the spirit of punk rock. We will miss him dearly.

Listen to the interviews here:

The Dirty Secrets of the Landmark Music Festival

Presented by the Minister of Information of Punk the National Mall and Punk Life Zine.

The Eddiegate Basement Tapes from the Ronald Reagan International Trade Building with Freedom of Information Act recordings from the National Park Service and Trust For the National Mall related to the unethical and deceitful actions perpetrated on the American People by the so called "guardians" of the National Mall.

Also featuring emails from Caroline Cunningham, now former President of the Trust for the National Mall, where she lets the world know what she thinks of the National Park Foundation and Seth Hurwitz of IMP and the 930 Club. Not to be left out is King Weasel, Bob Vogel, now Director of the National Capital Region of the National Park Service too.

We also have real life interviews with Freshman Rep. Mark DeSaulinier (D. 11th District, CA) and as close to live interview as possible with 13 term Rep. Eleanor Holmes Norton (D. DC). Not cool Ms. Norton.

Finally step back into history and listen to the 1984 Supreme Court Oral Arguments of the Clark v. Creative Community of Non-Violence and the repeated transgressions of the National Park Service against the American People in the name of stewardship of our National Parks. (Please remember CCNV this holiday season)

Thanks to Kim Stryker, Save the Smithsonian Folklife Festival, Positive Force DC,  Jim DeRogatis, Scott Higham, and Steve Kiviat for their help and encouragement.

Dissonance and Radio CPR mourn the death of a friend and fellow DJ, John Hansen, who took his own life last Friday at age 47.  John aka DJ One Lung was involved in our station from the start.  He held the Saturday 3:00 to 5:00 pm slot through 2008, and was our longtime tech guru.  He was generally known as an all around tech whiz within the DC punk scene, going back to his days as roadie for the Slickee Boys, later filling in on guitar after Kim Kane left the band.  I can't say I knew John very well, but I remember him as a helpful and witty person who saved many beginning DJs from on-air technical snafus, myself included.  He will be missed.
