A collage of album covers of music played on this show
Self Help Radio 011822: 1969


Every year around his birthday, Self Help Radio's host plays a selection of his favorite music from a certain year.  The first time there was a Self Help Radio on his birthday week - in 2003 (the show began in October 2002 in Austin, Texas) - he chose to play music from the year of his birth, 1968.  The next year, deciding against some randomization of the years he lived (it would be easier to remember at any rate), he chose 1969.  & so on, chronologically.  He's reached 1986.  A very important year for him musically!

Joining him on the show is librarian Carole, who talks about books from 1986, & cinephile Chuck, who talks about his favorite movies from 1986.  But mainly there's lots of music.

Happy birthday to Gary!  Please send cake!
