Ahhhh... Washington D.C. radio was, and still is, notoriously bad.
Very very very bad. Awful. Atrocious. No college stations! Except
for the 10-watt U of Maryland station, which has extremely limited
range. I grew up about 100 miles east of there, and in our little
town, in the last couple of years, we now have a decent college radio
station, but Washington still doesn't. Terrible radio over there!
Awful! One of the NPR stations used to have a lot of decent bluegrass
programs, but they've gotten rid of almost all of those, and replaced
them with plain old NPR talk. And the Pacifica station is
booooooooring. Some jazz and that's about it.
Philly -- not a terrible radio town. Boston -- pretty good. San Fran
-- nifty. NYC -- great, it has FMU! Washington -- abominable!
Dan in DC:
I am a recent transplant to the DC area, and I heard Ian mention that he could think
of bands from the 80s and 90s in DC, but what is going on today?
IE Where and what is the scene in DC at this moment in his opinion?
45 year old punk:
Mean kids ruined all the great stuff we set up. Jello Biafra, Will Shatter, Bad
Brains, X, Darby, Phranc ETC,,,,, we did not do what we did for these mean nasty
kids to ruin. This 2nd generation clap trap is enough to make even ME want to boot
one of these BRATS. 45 years old. FIVE YEARS LATE. Ruined everything. If you
weren't there in 1980, forget it.
I only caught the last 10 minutes of the show. But I totally dug the band that was playing the neat mash-up kinda covers of Bille Jean and Tainted Love and what not.
Was that Mysterious D?
Loved the show. I could not find the their web sites. You gotta slow down when ya throwing that stuff out there.
Ramelzee vs Krob was pretty awesome in its day.
When punk/hardcore started and you went to a show there was a chance you might get hit but after Rollins' crowd in Washington etc jock jerks showed up just to hit someone and it is why hardcore came to a total halt. Phranc, Mike Watt, Billy Zoom all the elders bowed out because of the 2nd generation.
Hey, thanks for the show and for the opportunity to hear Ian, it was a very good interview. It really struck me that in 2007 you can't play Minor Threat because of the swearing, not even in an independent radio station! that's insane and a total paradox. I suppose you all agree. That "clean mix" you did should be part of the history of censorship. I'm writting from Spain... People, do something about the situation and all the things going on today in your country!!!
First up: thanks to everyone who listens to WFMU - especially those who emailed here. As far as links related to the guests on this show: For Ian MacKaye (one of my all-time heroes) information and music (including Fugazi and minor Threat) best to just go to www.dischord.com and as Ian suggested in interview: support artists' work! For links to the "mashup/bootlegs" that A&D were mentioning go to these sites: gybo.org, bootieusa.com, bootienyc.com, and mashuptown.com. For more info on singer Trixxie www.trixxiecarr.com. And for more info on the featured DJ, Skratch Bastid from Canada (with new mix CD "Get Up!") go to www.skratchbastid.com - And any questions ever on music played in this show please me @wfmu.org - peace: BillyJam
Hey, thanks for another good show. I like the fact that it is not just one kind of music. To me your wide mix represents what hip-hop is supposed to be....everything from punk rock to classical to spoken-word & emcees, and old breaks and new skratch tracks. Loved hearing Brand Nubian track!
killer show!!i love fugazi!!!
Hey folks, A+D were kind enough to let me know that you played my "Fade to pretty vacant" on the show. Thanks for the spin. Appreciate it. More Cat stuff over at www.djcopycat.com. Thanks again. See you! /Cc
hahahah i love yah,, beyonce
