"480 Minutes" - Pets Are A Socialist Luxury

Did you see what the California legislative Republicans almost did? They almost brought the 8th largest economy in the world to it's knees. They almost caused great harm to the many already suffering Californians. The Governator tried to add a 9% tax to veterinary services. Sorry, Fido, no shots for you this year...we can't afford to take you to the vet!

Anyway, today's show will feature new music from Yeah Yeah Yeahs (Brooklyn, NY), U2 (Dublin, Ireland), Mirah (Portland, OR), These Are Powers (Chicago, IL), The Soundtrack of Our Lives (Göteborg, Sweden), Mumiy Troll (Vladivostok, Russia), Telepathe (Brooklyn, NY), Everything Absent Or Distorted (Denver, CO), The Takeover UK (Pittsburgh, PA), The Laureates (Chicago, IL), Marissa Nadler (Boston, MA), Youth Group (Sydney, Australia), and Lucky Jesus (San Francisco, CA).

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:
