Self Help Radio is not a self-help radio show. The confusion is understandable. However, one may help oneself to a weekly examination of a particular theme featuring music, interviews with "experts," & quite possibly things that are "funny." It began in Austin, spent some time in Appalachia, & now gazes lovingly at the giant fir trees in Portland, Oregon. A fellow named Gary hosts it. It's a lot of hooey but sometimes the songs are good.  Find out more infomation about the show at its website, selfhelpradio.net.

It's a tradition as old as Self Help Radio - every year around the time of my birthday, I, Gary (the hose of the show), play music from a year in my life. The first Self Help Radio that happened around my birthday was in 2003, & I played some of my favorite music from 1968,... Read more

It's the dawn of a new year, so Self Help Radio's first theme of 2023 is "the dawn." Because of the recent power outage at the station, I had to scramble to put this together at home & record it, so it's mainly lots of music. It also does not appear to be archived here, so... Read more

Produced for Self Help Radio
Please be aware this isn't a "best of" list.  Even though I listen to lots of music (I'm Gary), I haven't listened to all the music that came out in 2022.  Also, I don't really believe you can use the word "best" about something that's subjective, like an opinion.  What I l... Read more
