Self Help Radio - Blemish, Blight, Or Bane?

Self Help Radio is not really a self-help radio show. Instead, there's music & talk (lots & lots of talk) about a different theme each week (including pretend "experts" in interview format). Defying all expectation, the show has survived for over a decade by fleeing from radio station to radio station, starting in Austin, Texas, & now hiding out in Lexington, Kentucky. The host, Gary, finds the themes inadvertently; the machine roars, then collapses; budgets are blown on beer & booze. No one knows where all that noise is coming from.
 
Lots of previously-aired shows have come to die on this website. Or are they just resting?
 
Must you, really, interact? Oh, then:
Email the show! Read the show's blog! Read the show's tweets! Tumble with the show! Facebook friend the show! The internet has told the show that it has drunk its fill. Any more & it will explode.
 
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.
