"480 Minutes" - new Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Thermals

It's Friday so it's time for the weekly 480 Minutes preview, but's been such a terrible week here in the U.S. -- I haven't been this antsy for a week to end in a long, long time.  The fatal Boston Marathon explosions, the racist Islamophobia that predictably followed, the Senate siding with the 1.1% (aka The NRA) by voting down background checks for gun purchases (why are they so afraid of background checks, anyway?), the fatal Texas fertilizer plant explosions, and now (at the time of this writing) the M.I.T. shootings...even for non-believers this has been a TGIF week. 

Please help distract me from the chaos, death, and hate by hanging with me today during my 8-hour marathon radio show, which will feature new music by Akron/Family (Brooklyn, NY), Cocktails (San Francisco, CA),  Cowboy Indian Bear (Lawrence, KS), Dead Confederate (Athens, GA), Depth & Current (Norman, OK), The Growl (Freemantle, Western Australia), Junip (Gothenburg, Sweden), Oceanography (Oakland, CA), Teenage Sweater (San Francisco, CA), The Thermals (Portland, OR), We All Want To (Brisbane, Australia), and Yeah Yeah Yeahs (New York, NY).

Requests are taken and sometimes honored during the live-hosted hours (9 a.m. - 5 p.m Pacific Time):
