Self Help Radio - Maybe Too Stupid To Die

Self Help Radio (despite its name) is not really a self-help radio show. Sorry if you're looking for something else. Mainly it's music & chatter & maybe that can be a little self-help-y maybe? It's been on three different radio stations in three very different states - beginning in Austin, Texas, & now residing in Lexington, Kentucky. The show works in this way: medication is forgotten, hallucinations return, angels choose a theme, Gary (the host) feels compelled to make a radio show, great tunes & hilarity (hopefully) (hopelessly) ensues. This website contains a lot of episodes of Self Help Radio but they're really not recommended if you have anything better to do.
 
You can help Self Help Radio help yourself:
Please write Gary an email. Please don't make fun of Gary's blog. Please explain to Gary what "re-tweeting" means. Please don't let teenagers make fun of Gary's Tumbler plage. Please tell Gary you like Self Help Radio on Facebook. Gary doesn't know what Instagram means.
