"480 Minutes" featuring new music. Seriously.

Thanks to everyone who came out to the BarackNRoll event, to Big Light, These United States, and the great John Doe for entertaining everyone who came out, the Independent for bending over backwards to help, and to the event organizers who made it all happen. Bravo on a huge success -- the event raised over $10,000 that will be used to help peel back the "he's a terrorist" blinders from the eyes of FOX News viewers in swing states.

Quick heads up -- next Friday "480 Minutes" will be a re-run while I am in New York at the CMJ New Music Marathon.

Please participate in our Radiohead favorite album poll.

New music today from 20 Minute Loop (San Francisco, CA), Baby Guts (Minneapolis, MN), The Major Labels (LA/Boston), James (Manchester, England England), Frances (Brooklyn, NY), Cause Co-Motion (Brooklyn, NY), Pelle Carlberg (Stockhold, Sweden), Solid Gold (Minneapolis, MN), Parts And Labor (Brooklyn, NY), Like A Fox (New Jersey/Philadelphia), Josh Martinez (Portland, OR), Francois Virot (Rhône-Alpes, France), and a San Francisco band that does not yet have a name, so I am calling them The Great Crash Oh Eight.

Please tune in to "480 Minutes" today and every Friday. The show runs live from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Pacific Time, is rebroadcast starting at 8 p.m., then twice more on Saturday. On Saturday night at midnight we return to regular BAGeL Radio programming.

Why is John McCain protecting the richest of the rich using as a human shield a non-licensed plumber? Some 40% of Americans will buy whatever McLiar is selling simply because he claims to be anti-choice. Well, that, plus rejecting the Republican party now would mean admitting that their votes for Dim Son these past couple of elections are largely responsible for the quickest imperial collapse in the history of great world powers. has more, and Barry Crimmins has the complete analysis.
