Ep 57: Henry Rollins & Joe Shanahan

“Scar tissue is stronger than regular tissue. Realize the strength, move on.” - Henry Rollins

General Admission is back with a new season! We’ve got so much planned for you guys so get those headphone ready, subscribe and share.

For our first official episode back Don sits down with singer and storytelling powerhouse Henry Rollins and Chicago rock venue legend Joe Shanahan. Shanahan is the owner of Metro, a venue anchored within the Chicago music scene. In this episode you’ll hear a discussion surrounding the relationship between bands and the venues that house them.

Henry talks how his band needed venues like The Metro in order to make enough money for a Denny’s Grand Slam breakfast and gas to make it to the next gig. Places like the Metro also need the bands and musicians so they can keep the lights on. It’s a symbiotic relationship.

This interview is part of an ongoing series of intimate conversation to be held at the Metro and sponsored by Dark Matter Coffee and Shure.

Ep 55: The “Goodbye WBEZ” / “Free Agent” Special!

As you may have heard, General Admission is parting ways with WBEZ. The guys will continue the show in some form with a different network in March, but before that time, they wanted to celebrate their time with WBEZ: it’s been real, as the kids say.

On this episode, you’ll be treated to clips from Tyler & Don’s favorite interviews, on-locations adventures & a highlight reel of moments where they completely lost their minds.

This is an episode for super-fans & people interested in finding out more about the show (READ: “other network” mentioned above!).

And for those that are curious why the two are parting ways, Ben Calhoun, WBEZ’s Director of Programming, had this to say about the split:

“I really appreciate the passion and energy that’s gone into General Admission, and the affection the show’s earned from its audience. But we’ve had to face the reality that the show isn’t sustainable for us. And so we had to make a difficult decision to bring the partnership to a close. That said, as much as ever, we appreciate Tyler and Don – for their charm, talent, and endless enthusiasm for creative communities. They’re terrific. As I always am – I am excited for where they turn their passions next.”
