There are changes on the horizon for the radio show/podcast formerly known as "DIY, Portland." First of all, I have decided to change the name, something I've been meaning to do for some time, to Destination DIY. The main reason for this is because the show has broad enough appeal that other stations outside our fair city are beginning to play it and it seems like a good idea to take the word "Portland" out of the title in order to better include listeners in other places. The show will still be based in Portland, however.
While the city where the show is broadcast will not be changing, it will be available here in different ways. As I transition to a fulltime staff position at OPB, that station will also be taking on the distribution of my show.
The June 19 episode will be the last one on KBOO's airwaves and web site. I intend to remain a loyal volunteer as KBOO continues to undergo what I see as an exciting transformation. If you want to follow the transformation of Destination DIY, I invite you to visit www.destinationdiy.org or www.opb.org/radio for details. All future episodes will continue to be available at www.destinationdiy.org and via the podcast. Listening parties will continue to take place @ 7pm the third Thursday of each month at the Waypost coffee shop (3120 N. Williams Ave.)
Thank you all for your support and inspiration.
