Self Help Radio 061521: Subways Revisited


It's perhaps germane to note that Self Help Radio existed many years before the show found its way to KBOO.  It was on a few different stations in other places wherever host Gary happened to be.  & it was in another place, in August of 2012, that Self Help Radio first explored the theme of "subways."  If you'd like, you can see that playlist here.  Maybe compare & contract with the playlist below.

& it's not terribly common for themes to be revisited on Self Help Radio, but an opportunity presented itself: a collaboration with the folks from Sub-Human Intellect Theater!  & so it happened - you can listen to the panel discussion during the show to see how it went.

So many songs about subways & other interviews too - with Karen from the Sub-Humans, with Denver Smith, & with Corky Cole, who lives on a subway train.  It might not get you anywhere but the show is at least as pleasurable as the average subway ride.

They don't say "all aboard" on subways do they?  I know they say "mind the gap."  Maybe I should just end this end "Stand clear of the closing doors!"
