"480 Minutes" - New Throwing Muses


Last week we were off for Thanksgiving. The week before we were staying in Manhattan and attempted a remote broadcast from there, which failed miserably.  

In light of these sad facts I am so looking forward to today's show that I can hardly contain myself.  Even though the main broadcast MacBook just required Recovery Disk-level maintenance!

It should also be noted that today will be the last 480 Minutes episode of the year featuring brand new releases as we begin the process of filtering back through 1000+ (srsly) new songs that were added to rotation to determine the top songs, albums, and shows of the year.  Then next week (or on 12/20, if it doesn't get done by 12/13) will be my favorite show of the year, the one featuring all of the best music of the year.  Check here and the Facebook page for updates about that.

Speaking of updates, thanks for all the e-mails asking about our new as-yet-unnamed fuzzed-out space rock show.  The show is still in development and will debut in January -- again, check here and the Facebook page for updates.  If you have any great ideas for show names please, let me know!

Today's 480 Minutes (every Friday 9 a.m. - 5 p.m. Eastern Time) episode will debut new songs by Brad Laner (Los Angeles, CA, @BradLaner),  Dead Gaze (Oxford, MS), The Duke of Norfolk (Tulsa, OK, @ThDukeOfNorfolk), Flashlights (Orlando, FL, @flashlightsband), Jake Bugg (Nottingham, England, @jakebugg), Lurve (Brooklyn, NY, @ThisIsLurve),  Second Sky (Lancaster, PA @SecondSkyMusic), Thee Oh Sees (San Francisco, CA, @TheOheSees), and Throwing Muses (Newport, RI, @throwingmuses).

Requests will be taken and oftentimes honored during the live-hosted hours via e-mail and IM and I'm getting better at responding to Tweets in something resembling real time, so if that's your preferred mode of communication, go for it:
