"480 Minutes" 4/13/07 - new Veils, Frog Eyes, Low Red Land

Before getting to today's program I'd like to say I am saddened by the losss of the free-thinking humanist: Kurt Vonnegut (1922-2007), may he rest in peace and may his words continue to inspire the young and annoy the fools in power.

Next week there will be a co-host for at least part of the program -- fresh off another van tour of the US, Birdmonster bass player/regular "480 Minutes" listener and critic Justin Tenuto will stop by for a visit.

Today I'm on my own, so please keep me company...and bring friends.

In other news, we'll have new music today from The Veils, Pterodactyl, Low Red Land, Elvis Perkins, Ola Podrida, Frog Eyes, The Young Knives, plus a few Secretely Canadian acts covering songs of other Secretly Canadian acts (Nikki Sudden covering June Panic, Dave Fischoff covering Damien Jurado, Swearing At Motorists covering Havergal).

Please tune in for the weekly marathon that is "480 Minutes" today from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Pacific Time. You can and should request songs and stuff via:
