This week, Self Help Radio played songs & talked about "the kids." The kids that were both all right & (it turns out) all shite. The kids that just wanted to have fun, & would never been divided if they were just united. All kindsa kids. Dumb ass kids, skinny indie kids, stray kids, rich kids, even homeless club kids. We were all about the kids, even if the kids say the darnedest things.
In addition to all that music, we also talked to a person with two many kids, a Hollywood producer who is working on a television show for kids, & the host's spiritual mentor, who talked about his kids. We discussed idioms involving kids, & the show's resident cinephile shared films involving the kids in different roles.
Despite all this, the show wasn't kid-friendly, which is to be expected. So please don't let the kids listen to the show about the kids. Make sure the kids have the happiest of childhoods so they can group up to be the adults we hoped we'd turn out to be. But we had to listen to radio shows in the middle of the night despite not being allowed to. That's where it all went wrong for us.
Please enjoy. & oh yes, that picture is host Gary's first grade class photo. Can you spot him in the line-up?
