Self Help Radio 091421: Dare


Can you make radio on a dare?  Should you?  How daring is it to play three hours of songs that feature one kind of dare or another?  Does who dares, win?  How dare you!  Do you dare?  I daresay you do!

In addition to all the songs you see listed below, the show features an interview with a primatologist about her new exhibit "daring primates"; with famed Portland daredevil Colt Sawyer; & with Marlon Queen, who has an organization called D.A.R.E. - but not the one you're thinking about.  Also, we talk about idioms like we do, & the host has an argument with himself.  It's probably not what would be called daring by most radio standards, but such standards are often lower on late-night radio.

Do you dare listen?
