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.

Hot on the heels of Mother's Day comes a show more informally for Mom. As explained in the show, host Gary lost his mother last year (that's her in the wedding photo there, lightly desecrated with the SHR logo), & a memorial hasn't been possible thanks to the pandemic. But ... Read more

Finally! A radio program you can wrapped yourself in to keep warm! Or is that fair? Are radio waves - or sound waves coming from your computer - enough to blanket you in the same way your favorite cover might? Yes, we're overselling a bit. But there's a comfort, surely, in ... Read more

Every four months of so, Self Help Radio returns to a series begun way back in 2005, when it was a young show on a station in Austin.  It was an attempt to play in alphabetical order artists & bands who fit the genre definition of "indiepop" (the Wikipedia gets it right) pl... Read more

This was a fun episode. Lots of songs about Paris, a city I have only visited once, but boy did I like it there. I hope to go again. Plus I reconnected with an old friend who married a Frenchman & now lives in Paris.  & I talked with an old friend who's Belgian who loves Pa... Read more

Could it be, after a year of pandemic, everything is now calm?  No, that's just this radio show.  It's mainly still chaos everywhere. This week on Self Help Radio we calmed the heck down & played tunes about things that are calm.  Sometimes we included things that are cool.... Read more

"I have traveled a good deal in Concord," said Thoreau, who wasn't much of a tourist.  In fact, I am not sure why I thought of that quote in relation to this episode of Self Help Radio, which was about tourism.  Hm. The fate of tourism should we emerge from under the curren... Read more

Be careful, this show has some sharp edges! Yes, this week's episode of Self Help Radio is about daggers.  Which aren't quite knives.  I suppose a dagger is a kind of knife, but all knives are not daggers.  I think daggers are fancier.  They have two sharp edges.  If it's ... Read more

A rare victory for the underdog radio show. Although it's the show itself declaring victory & it's not entirely clear what the battle was. Something is rotten in the state of Self Help Radio... Never you mind!  Some sort of struggle happens whenever this show gets on the a... Read more
