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.

*Sigh.* A show about sighing. Mainly music, a little poetry, way too many sighs. But what did you expect? During the show, a wonderful article about sighing is excerpted.  It's this one: "Why We Sigh" by Shayla Love on vice.com.  It's a lovely read. The creator of the orig... Read more
