"480 Minutes" - Mother's Day Edition

Good morning/afternoon/evening, whichever is correct for when you are reading this.  Welcome to the weekly note that reveals all of the new playlist additions set to debut during today's edition of 480 Minutes, our weekly marathon award-winning 8-hour live-hosted radio show.

This Sunday we celebrate Mother's Day here in the U.S. (well, not everyone celebrates), so we will sprinkle in some mother-related songs throughout the day. Or maybe during one set -- the "mother" of all sets, anyone?  We shall she.

Today's installment of 480 Minutes will also feature new music by Alpine (Melbourne, Australia), The Baptist Generals (Denton, TX). The Bats (Christchurch, New Zealand), Big Black Delta (Los Angeles, CA), Gold & Youth (Vancouver, Canada), Michael Cronin (San Francisco, CA), Pure X (Austin, TX), Savages (London, England), Small Black (Brooklyn, NY), Vampire Weekend (New York, NY), and We Are Loud Whispers (Tokyo, Japan/Seattle, WA).

(In case you are wondering, the new Michael Cronin record is ridiculously fantastically awesomely great pop and I hate it because I can't figure out which song to play for you first).

Requests are taken during the live-hosted hours (9 a.m. - 5 p.m Pacific Time) via e-mail and IM:
