Whither Evenings?

Sometimes*, this show will have a theme somehow connected to the date, or to some recent event, or something topical**.  This will happen on Valentine's Day, Halloween, Christmas, etc.  But mostly, we have to admit, a theme has almost no bearing to what's going on in the real world, especially since it is formed in my brain, which is the very opposite of the real world***.

As Dave Gahan has said, "But not tonight!"  No, the theme this week is "evenings" & it just so happens - I mean, seriously, what are the odds - it's way too fitting to be a coincident - believe it or not, young Ripley - Self Help Radio is a radio program that airs in the evenings.

Crazy, right?

Tonight will be an evening show about evenings.  Hell, it might even represent an evening out**** of the divide between topical themes & arbitrary themes.  This evening's show about evenings may mark a new way of choosing themes for Self Help Radio!

But probably not.  Listen anyway, this evening, from 8-10pm central, 9-11pm eastern, on 89.3 fm in Lexington & online at  It may not be the best way to spend an evening, but I will be in fact one way to spend an evening.  & I am standing by that statement.

* Rarely.
** A topical topic.
*** True that.
**** You know, like making things even, not like going out for an evening.*****
***** You know it's a terrible pun when you have to explain it.
