Self Help Radio - Self Help For A New Millenium!

Hey you. You've found Self Help Radio! Uh oh. This is not a self-help radio show. As you will quickly discover. Instead, this show plays music based on a theme (like the ones we've covered before) with interviews with "experts" who bloviate with panache. The show started in Austin & currently airs in Lexington, Kentucky. Hosted by someone called Gary, the show explores topics without rhyme or reason but with a good deal of fun & nonsense.
Help yourself here:
Email the show! Read the show's blog! Read the show's tweets! Tumble with the show! Facebook friend the show! It's the 1980s middle school a/v club of radio shows!
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.
