Go-Go Music Resumes At D.C. Store After Noise Complaints


Good morning. I'm Rachel Martin. The beat is back on a Washington, D.C., street corner. A mobile phone store has been playing go-go music outside for decades, but the store owner said T-Mobile corporate told him he had to shut it all down after a neighbor complained it was too loud. There were demonstrations for days, a petition and a hashtag - #DontMuteDC. And yesterday, the CEO of T-Mobile agreed, though he did suggest compromising on the volume.
