Tony: Johnny Dare Goes Off On Aggie Stackhaus

Mixing local entertainment and politics isn’t usually very much fun but this morning Johnny Dare’s tirade against Parks Board Member Aggie Stackhaus was a local radio classic.

Calling a local politico a “snatch” is certainly something I can respect. I was lucky enough to just tune in just as he said it. I normally listen to motivational tapes in the morning mixed in with disco & hip-hop but a friend called me and suggested I take a listen. The moment was classic because, from what I could tell, Dare’s staff was laughing along with him up till that point but once the word “snatch” was put into play everybody but Dare was incredibly quiet.

For at least a half an hour the highly rated and widely celebrated Dare tore into Stackhaus with a vengeance that he usually reserves for child molesters.

The disagreement was simple, and as Hearne wrote, mostly overplayed.

Stackhaus made a stink about the aftermath of Rockfest and Dare disagreed. Then one of Dare’s underlings reported that Stackhaus not only wouldn’t take calls from Dare’s show but “didn’t care what Johnny Dare or his fans thought” and that gave way to some truly genius insults.

One of these days radio will contribute to their own self destruction and start clipping these golden moments in mp3 format but as of now this legendary rant is just one of many reasons why Dare is the most successful radio personality in town and his show is ALWAYS worth a listen.

He exposed class differences, stood up for his fans and took apart a minor league former Council Lady and current Parks Board Member. For once a Kansas City Media Catfight lived up to the hype and provided some classic entertainment.

    why all the screaming. The place was
    destroyed by the rockfest. They ruined some
    grass and some sod. So run an ad on
    craigs list for workers and have it ready
    for the memorial day weekend.
    AEG is paying for it…the proably made a
    million bucks on the deal…so why is
    everyone including this boot licking
    politico getting all riled up.
    55,000 people on a wet field in arrowhead
    or the k will do some damage.
    Its being taken care.
    Why is this b*tch crying so loud against
    dare and rock n roll fans.
    Its over. The solution is happending and now
    one thing every politician should learn…
    don’t piss off johnny dare.
    One of the really good people on radio who
    does incredible charity work and loves this
    city.
    This hack lady needs to be replaced. How about
    putting someone with some brains on this
    commission/board.

    Can we cool it with all the JD worship of KC confidential? The guy is a generic, no talent hack. The fact that he is a such a local luminary here makes our city look incredibly insignificant, which it is. There are 9 Johnny dares in every major metropolitan area.

    Whoa, tough guy Johnny Dare. Badass bitch-speak smackdown of Aggie Stackhaus.

    The Star created a story when their wasn’t one. The real story to be told is the work that goes on after the fact, after almost every major event held there, to restore the grounds.

    I know some people think it’s irreverant to have a bunch of cheap beer swilling white trash morons smoking dope, snorting coke, and playing grab ass with fat girls on Hallowed Ground. The fact is those boys and men that died in WWI did so to preserve the rights of those idiots to do just that.

    If Johnny had any class he would have mobilized his minions to pick up trash, or cut grass some weekend at some of the places that the PARKS DEPARTMENT can’t get around to due to budget cuts. That’s a far more powerful message than calling Aggie a “snatch”.

    Lauren wants to know…
    was there really pot at Rockfest? I was busy cleaning the mud off my wedding dress and must have missed that…was it at a kiosk? I love kiosks, they are so ROUND, like the diamond ring I was hoping some rocker would give me at Rockfest. After all, isn’t that why it’s called ROCK fest??? I’m so confused….

    Ditto smartman and Tracy. Imagine Jhnny with 10,000 “stoners and slackers” volunteering for 4 hours on a Saturday to do stuff the Parks Dept can’t. That’d shut Aggie up. Game-set-match to Johnny Dare.

    JimmmyD, Johnny Dare is a totally mediocre radio personality. His ass kissing celebrity interviews are vomit inducing and his juvenile comedy stopped being funny after I turned 14. Jonny Dare is a punch line. He’s every local radio douche in every city ever. Only read necks, people missing teeth, and Tony Botello pay any attention to him.

    Smartman, you’re not. Why not change your name to Elitistman? I know for a fact that several degree holding individuals attended Rockfest. I know for a fact that soldiers and marines who are willing to die for the same freedoms that the WWI vets defended also attended Rockfest. Are these the ‘white trash morons’ you’re referring to? I also am certain that people who provide basic services for your elitist self attended the concert. Maybe the people who cook your meals, hurl your trash, connect your calls, drive your ambulances and guard you while you sleep were the ‘white trash morons’ you hold in such disregard?

    What is this Hallowed Ground you speak of? I am curious as to what part of Penn Valley Park has been consecrated by a church? If you are speaking of the Liberty Memorial and it’s associated grounds, then you would still be wrong as, again, the earth there has not been consecrated. Liberty Memorial is dedicated to the memory of the people who fought and died in WWI, but it has not been sanctified by any church. Everyone involved with Rockfest was greatly respectful of the Liberty Memorial and the concert promoters made certain that no disrespect was made to the Memorial or it’s grounds. In fact, AEG and Entercom gave a $50,000 donation to the Libery Memorial when none was necessary as their grounds were not being used. And Rockfest was held at Penn Valley Park which is adjacent to Liberty Memorial, but is not Libery Memorial.

    I am curious to something, Elitistman. What events do you attend that you feel the need to pick up trash and/or cut grass some weekend at some of the places that the Parks Department can’t get around to due to budget cuts? Is that some penance you feel you must pay for having a good time that you paid for? But as far as the budget shortfalls you mention, I wonder if the money paid for by the Rockfest organizers to the city would help alleviate that? Not to mention that the Rockfest organizers have already agreed to clean up Penn Valley Park and reseed & resod the affected areas at zero cost to the city.

    Smartman, anything but. You’re obviously A complete MORON! “Hollowed Ground”, when did tax payer financed Penn valley park become, Hollowed ground” Get your facts straight, before you go flapping your lips! 95% of the event was not even on the Memorial site but on Penn valley park, and,”white trash Johnny Dare”, and the rock has done more to preserve liberty memorial through rockfest money than anyone else has, so get yourself A nice glass of Merlot, turn on your favorite Jack Johnson CD and shut the F&%@ up!!! shaneb13@kc.rr.com

    Dare gives good interviews, asks good questions and does his homework on the celeb or whomever. There may be similar DJ’s in every other city but his ratings are a juggernaut in these parts. What’s your idea of a great radio personality? Only red necks and people missing teeth listen? You are an uninformed fool
