"480 Minutes" - New Fall (MES Lives!)

Thanks to everyone for a great Rumble this week. The Ferocious Few were terrific following their long drive back from Portland. Clean-shaven Francisco of TFF sported his best Benjamin Braddock look, and The Sermon, who I hadn't seen for years, were spot-on. And so many lovely people I know stopped by, and several I had never met stopped by the DJ booth to say hi. 'Twas a great night all around.

There is now a stripped-down mobile-friendly version of this blog. Check out and bookmark on your mobile device for easy reading.

Sometimes it's hard to choose the single most ridiculous Sarah Palin-related news of the week. This week it's easy: the former Alaska Governor and current Queen of the Tea Party tweeted: "Gulf: learn from Alaska's lesson w/foreign oil co's: don't naively trust- VERIFY." While I'm not sure exactly sure what she means, I am sure of a couple of things Ms. Up On The Issues should probably be made aware of including (1) British Petroleum is no more a "foreign oil company" than that other transnational megacorporation, ExxonMobile, and (2) her husband, Todd Palin, worked for that not-to-be-trusted foreign oil company, BP! For 18 years! Oh, Sarah. Spill, baby! Spill!

Moving along to the tunes, today's show will include a ton of new stuff including new music by Ash Reiter (San Francisco, CA), Audra Mae (Los Angeles, CA), Carnivores (Atlanta, GA), Caw! Caw! (Chicago, IL), Cloud Cult (Minneapolis, MN), CocoRosie (Paris, France), The Dead Weather (Nashville, TN), Delorean (Barcelona, Spain), The Fall (Manchester, England England), Jeremy Messersmith (Minneapolis, MN), The Joy Formidable (North Wales, England), Lali Puna (Weilheim, Germany), The Lambs (San Francisco, CA), The Lodger (Leeds, England), Male Bonding (South London, England), Medications (Washington, D.C.), The New Pornographers (Vancouver, Canada), and The Whitsundays (Edmonton, Canada).

Please tune in today and every Friday to 480 Minutes between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m. Pacific Time.
