"480 Minutes" - The Suddenly Unemployed Edition

For you Bay Area listeners there are a couple of good shows this weekend: tonight at the Hotel Utah it's Raised By Robots and Supervinos VTO (tickets here), then tomorrow night at Bottom of the Hill it's The Meat Puppets, Trainwreck Riders, and The Shaky Hands (a troika of BAGeL Radio bands!), and I'll be there DJing, so buy your tickets now (no fee!) while they are still available.

As alluded to in the title of this post, your humble narrator is looking for work. Fast. If you have any leads on SF Bay Area job openings that you think I would rock, please do let me know. Internet radio, music librarian, event coordinator, software quality assurance, helping to ease willing septuagenarians into the computer name it, I'll consider it. Thanks.

Also, if you know anyone who would benefit from learning how to start a blog, podcast, and internet radio station, and learn how to maximize the synergies between them, please let them know that my class, "Blogs, Podcasts, and Internet Radio" starts up again on 2/7 at San Francisco State University. Sign up!

As for today's show, I must admit I am very psyched about several of the things we will be debuting. "480 Minutes" will feature new music today from Morrissey (Los Angeles, CA), Animal Collective (Baltimore, MD), Lily Allen (London, England), The Wrens (Secaucus, New Jersey), Now Now Every Children (Minneapolis, MN), A.C. Newman (Vancouver, Canada), Andrew Bird (Chicago, IL), Gemma Hayes (Dublin, Ireland), Vulture Whale (Birmingham, AL), Kyle Andrews (Nashville, TN), Freshkills (New York, NY), Sparks (Los Angeles, CA), and several cover versions of pop hits by cool bands including My Brightest Diamond, Robbers On High Street, and Frightened Rabbit.

Please tune in this and every Friday to "480 Minutes," which runs live from 12 noon to 8 p.m. Eastern Time, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Pacific. You can reach me with requests, comments, corrections, criticisms, praise, etc. via:
