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.

Self Help Radio 5/24/22: Flowers

Airs at: Tue, 05/24/2022 at 12:00am - 3:00am
Produced for Self Help Radio
The final show during the KBOO Spring Membership Drive - the "Hive Drive" - in which we've explored bees, honey, buzzing, & stinging - is simply about flowers.  Those beautiful things which make Portland so lovely in the spring, & which give the bees something to do. If yo... Read more

Self Help Radio 5/17/22: Sting

Airs at: Tue, 05/17/2022 at 12:00am - 3:00am
Produced for Self Help Radio
It's important to note at the outset that, despite that picture to the right (about which more later), this show was not about the musician Sting, but about things that sting - specially bees, since it's part of the theme of the KBOO Spring Membership Drive.  While we did t... Read more

Self Help Radio 5/10/22: Buzz

Airs at: Tue, 05/10/2022 at 12:00am - 3:00am
Produced for Self Help Radio
Continuing with the "Hive Drive" theme of the KBOO Spring Membership Drive (hey! click that donate button up there on the right to help us out!), this week's Self Help Radio has the theme "buzz."  Because there's plenty of buzzing around a hive, since buzzing is the noise b... Read more

Self Help Radio on 5/3/22: Honey

Airs at: Tue, 05/03/2022 at 12:00am - 3:00am
Produced for Self Help Radio
As we continue into May with the Spring Membership Drive (click that "donate" button in the top right hand corner to help!), Self Help Radio offers another take on the "hive drive" premise: a show about honey. Not a show about the word "honey" as a term of endearment, or as... Read more

Self Help Radio 4/26/22: Indiepop A To Z # 68

Airs at: Tue, 04/26/2022 at 12:00am - 3:00am
Produced for Self Help Radio
Every four months, Self Help Radio returns to an alphabetical list of musicians who fall under the umbrella of "indiepop" (you may read a definiton here).  Perhaps we'll never finish.  We're in the letter P! We play not just indiepop artists but also music that influenced i... Read more

Self Help Radio 4/19/22: Bees

Airs at: Tue, 04/19/2022 at 12:00am - 3:00am
Produced for Self Help Radio
In honor of the KBOO Spring Membership Drive, which has been dubbed "the Hive Drive" & which uses delightful bee + spring imagery, Self Help Radio this week had a show about bees. In addition to lots & lots of bee songs, we talked to a scientist who thinks we can replace b... Read more

Self Help Radio 4/12/22: Outlaws

Airs at: Tue, 04/12/2022 at 12:00am - 3:00am
Produced for Self Help Radio
A radio show for the outlaw inside of us all.  Though law-abiding (mostly) we thrill to the exploits of Robin Hood, to the excitement of Jesse James, to the doomed, destructive love of Bonnie & Clyde.  That's what this show is about: the vicarious bad guy inside of us all. ... Read more

Self Help Radio 4/5/22: Drowning

Airs at: Tue, 04/05/2022 at 12:00am - 3:00am
Produced for Self Help Radio
How does on approach a terrible subject like drowning?  Do you mention that 236,000 people die a year from drowning, according to the WHO?  That it affects children, males, & those who have greater access to water the most?  Or do you mention that "drowning" as a definition... Read more

Self Help Radio 3/29/22: The Saddest Show

Airs at: Tue, 03/29/2022 at 12:00am - 3:00am
Produced for Self Help Radio
Self Help Radio was two different shows this week.  The first explored songs about what artists thought were the saddest things: saddest songs, saddest stories, even saddest snacks. During that section, we talked to a columnist who writes about the saddest things he sees; ... Read more

Self Help Radio 3/22/22: Too Much

Airs at: Tue, 03/22/2022 at 12:00am - 3:00am
Produced for Self Help Radio
The sign next to this paragraph, in a picture I took many moons ago in Texas, conveys what I think is too much information.  It has the unenviable task of telling you that not only is the "express lane" coming up, but it's coming up pretty soon, & we know that because it's ... Read more
