Self Help Radio 011017: Evenings

(Original image here.)

Evenings are good time for radio.  Or are they?  Aren't they better times for spending with family & friends (& by friends of course I mean "animal friends")?  In fact, evenings are terrible times to listen to the radio!  Who wants to listen to a dumb radio show while eating, for example?  No one!

What's more, one might be expected to don evening wear if one is going to listen to radio in the evening.  Absurd!  Ridiculous!  Who dresses up for the radio?  Not the deejays (in general) (I mean, I have seen some well-dressed deejays) (most of the time they're lucky I remembered pants)!  So why should you have on evening wear if the evening deejay(s) on the evening show doesn't bother?  It's an outrage & I am furiously penning a letter to my senator in my head.

Please note: I am penning the letter in my head.  I do not have a senator in my head.  But if I did, it would probably be Kirsten Gillibrand.  I mean, I would want it to be that senator.  It would probably end up being Mitch McConnell.

Where was I?  Who knows.  Here's Self Help Radio's show about evenings.  It's made with knowledge born of experience, as Self Help Radio has aired in the evenings now since gosh the fall of 2016.  So we know what we're talking about here.  For once.
