Self Help Radio - On The Air In Spite Of Everything!

Hello. Welcome to Self Help Radio! Please note this is not a self-help radio show. No good advice is available here. No, this show plays music based on a theme (we've covered lots of them) & features wisdom from "experts" who bloviate with panache. The show started in Austin & currently airs in Lexington, Kentucky. Hosted by the forgettable "Gary," a made-up name, probably, it finds subjects almost randomly, explores them recklessly, & forgets them instantly. Except here! On this web page!
Help yourself here:
Email the show! Read the show's blog! Read the show's tweets! Tumble with the show! Facebook friend the show! Don't be embarrassed. There are worse things on the internet.
If you want to listen to &/or download a show, this site will ask you for a username & also for a password. One of those is SHR ; the other is selfhelp. Use this information irresponsibly.
Themes the show will be exploring soon:
