"480 Minutes" - Friday The 13th


Happy Friday the 13th!

In this era of Herr Stephen Miller pushing knowingly bad-faith immigration policy, lapdog Evangelical Mike Pompeo running a mostly barren State Department, and a fourth National Security Advisor now kicked to the curb, is Friday the 13th even scary anymore?

Usually the start of September hits us with a ton of new releases which is awesome but also makes the review process that much more time-consuming and difficult. Not so this September. The submission volume has increased, of course, but the quality has been underwhelming at best. Also there seem to be a lot of newbies and incompetent industry veterans out there who are unable or unwilling to send files in the correct format, or at a useable bit rate, or with proper metadata, and those people help balance out the sheer volume of submissions because theirs can be discarded quickly.

This confluence of clumsiness allowed for going back through things to ensure that the reason we had an unusually high (98.6%) rate of rejection wasn't just based on mood. It turns out that regardless of mood, this week's batch of useable submissions sucked as a whole, but we did find a few things worthy of your attention to debut today.

The BAGeL Concert Finder gig calendar, the first such calendar tailored to BAGeL Radio listeners, is quite handy. Give it a try, why don't you? http://bagelconcertfinder.com/

Today's 480 Minutes show will again feature so much new music by Death Cab For Cutie (Bellingham, WA, @dcfc), Olivia Jean (Nashville, TN, @oliviajeanmusic), The Paranoyds (Los Angeles, CA), and Vivian Girls (Los Angeles, CA, @viviangirls).

480 Minutes is live-hosted from 9 a.m. until 5 p.m. Eastern U.S. Time and is followed by 2 hours of uninterrupted music. The show is then rebroadcast in it's entirety beginning at 7 p.m., then again on Saturday at 5 a.m. and 3 p.m., and one final time on Sunday at 1 a.m., followed by a rebroadcast of this week's Fuzzy Road radio show at 11 a.m. and then a couple of old 480 Minutes episodes from this week in past years, making for hosted shows all weekend long.

If you have trouble remembering when the live-hosted shows and re-runs air, check out the extremely crappy-looking program schedule embedded here:
