A dispute over loud “go-go” music cranked for years from outside a cellphone store in D.C. was resolved Wednesday after attracting the attention of telecom mogul John Legere and Mayor Muriel Bowser.

Mr. Legere, the CEO of T-Mobile USA, said that a Metro PCS store located on a corner in the Shaw neighborhood of the capital’s bustling U Street corridor will be allowed to resume playing the music indigenous to D.C, publicly intervening in a local squabble that erupted after the shop’s owner said recently that he was told by corporate to bring his speakers inside to avoid litigation.

“I’ve looked into this issue myself and the music should NOT stop in D.C.,” Mr. Legere wrote on Twitter. ”@TMobile and @MetroByTMobile are proud to be part of the Shaw community - the music will go on and our dealer will work with the neighbors to compromise volume.”
