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.

When I was a kid, I wanted a pony.  As an adult, I have to settle for a show about ponies. Luckily it's full of lots of songs about ponies.  You can't ride them, but still.  Also there are many conversations: with my friend Jarvis, who has a pony; with a fellow who wants t... Read more
