"480 Minutes" - The Abandoned City Edition

Tune in and get in touch today because...well, to be honest, it feels like San Francisco is a ghost town.  It's kinda like a classic Twilight Zone episode featuring Burgess Meredith.  This time each year the city empties out due to various holidays, anniversaries, vacations, camping trips, existential freak outs, and much-needed excursions to sunnier climes, hence my request for your help combatting the loneliness.

To tune in visit http://somafm.com/480min.  You can also find us in the iTunes/AppleTV Radio Tuner under the Alternative Rock category.

Better reasons to tune in than my pathetic begging -- today on 480 Minutes we will debut new songs by Bloc Party (London, England), Bob Mould (San Francisco, CA), Cat Power (Atlanta, GA), Deerhoof (San Francisco, CA), Dinosaur Jr. (Amherst, MA), Divine Fits (Los Angeles, CA), Fantasmes (San Juan, Puerto Rico), Kitten (Los Angeles, CA), Malka Spigel (London, England),  Nerd Revolt (San Francisco, CA), NO (Echo Park, CA), Sean Rowe (Troy, NY), and Two Gallants (San Francisco, CA).

Contact info for Fridays (during 480 Minutes) from 9 a.m. until 5 p.m. Pacific Time (time zone adjuster):
