Planned Rerun (Mental Health)

It dawned on me recently that there has been a new 480 Minutes episode every Friday in 2016 (except for the first one, 1/1/16), and with the exception of federal holidays, this will be only the second Friday in the last year+ that I will not be on the air hosting a show.

The show will be on the air, however, and just as commercial-free as always: with your host out of town we will run a few different 480 Minutes programs as reruns this weekend.  They will mostly be recent shows, so that we don't deprive the newest playlist additions their due, but there will also be one older edition of the show amongst the reruns.

480 Minutes will return with an all-new episode on Friday, July 1st, 2016.

Have a lovely weekend, everyone.  See ya!

"480 Minutes" - Orlando Rant (Now! With Links!)

This week a confused, hate-filled man in Orlando, Florida murdered 49 people and injured dozens of others with a weapon designed to kill multiple humans quickly and efficiently.  Because the killer apparently called 911 pledging allegiance to ISIS, Fox News is covering the story as "Islamic terrorism! Islamic terrorism! Islamic terrorism!" His claim of fealty to ISIS is hardly more convincing than the many photos the murderer is wearing NYPD-branded clothing -- why aren't they shrieking about "law enforcement terrorism," I wonder?

We must not let their false narrative distract from the fact that good old Fox News-lovin' Christian Americans have been and continue demonizing the LGBT community inspiring bigotry, hate, and violence in the name of their deity.  The murderer was an American for whom that vicious, mindless hate lead to the slaughter of dozens of innocents.

Bible-thumpers ignore many inconvenient "abominations" listed in (their) good book which would otherwise keep them from eating shrimp cocktail (Leviticus 11:10-19), or a ham sandwich (Deuteronomy 14:8), or (heaven forbid!) leftovers (Leviticus 19:7), and then there's the one that Joel Osteen and his minions somehow missed about the love of money being an abomination (Luke 16:15) -- why is it that one frivolous "abomination" in particular seemingly supercedes all for so many?

Tune in to BAGeL Radio on Fridays from 9 a.m. - 5 p.m. Eastern U.S. Time to find out!

The live-hosted, award-winning 480 Minutes program is all about solving the unsolvable...and also highlighting our newest playlist additions.  It is rebroadcasted on Friday evenings beginning at 7 p.m., Saturdays at 5 a.m. and 3 p.m., and Sundays at 1 a.m. ET (so as to not compete with the Megachurches).

Today's show will include new tunes by 50FootWave (New England/New Orleans, @kristinhersh) Deerhoof (San Francisco, CA, @deerhoof), and Rudy de Anda (Long Beach, CA, @rudydeandamusic).
