"480 Minutes" - Farewell, 2011

Hello and welcome to the final 480 Minutes show of 2011.  It's been another amazing year of amazing new music.  Next time you hear some talking head talks about the decline of the music business tell him you are paying attention to the man behind the curtain and said man is full of shit.  Maybe the giant labels are seeing sales decline, but great music is still being made and these days it is actually making it out of the garage and onto people's smartphones!

For proof, give a listen to some of the top 50 songs and top 50 albums of 2011 -- there is much more fantastic music being made and distributed than most people have a clue about.

This week we focus in on [we haven't decided yet! suggestions welcome!], and as always the show is hosted live and in-person from 9 a.m. until 5 p.m. Pacific Time.
