Self Help Radio - Don't Say We Didn't Warn You!

Nope. Not a self-help radio show. Why is it called that, then? Who knows? Every week this As you will show plays music based on a theme (look at ones we've covered before) with interviews with "experts" & other forms of "funny." From Texas to West Virginia to Kentucky back to Texas now, what? Gary hosts. It's mostly nonsense but maybe you'll like a song or two.
