"480 Minutes" - Sleepless And Scattered

We received tons of new submissions again this week and, for an unwelcome reversion to 2016 form, it was mostly lame.  Lots of vacuous pop music, insufferable dance music, dopey "active rock" (whatever the hell that is), and lots of indie-by-numbers that someone should have sent back to songwriting school because entire releases contained zero hooks.  That said, the volume of submissions was so great that some true gems are making it into rotation next week -- hear them first, today, during 480 Minutes.

Not particularly helpful to this endeavor I found myself battling on 3 fronts on The Facebooks: against all #neverHillary people who would (inadvertently) help the racist, sexist vulgarian with the temperament of a 6-year old rise to the bully pulpit; against many HRC supporters who are so incredibly condescending that they are effectively keeping many #neverHillary from coming around to vote for Drumpf's only viable rival; and, of course, the Drumpfacists who insist "he is not a bigot" despite so much evidence to the contrary that even the party of the Southern Strategy is calling him out on it.  Again.

Since I was up until after 4 a.m. working on today's show, chances are I will not have the intellectual capacity to discuss these things, so just tune in for the tunes this week.  The likelihood of even a single political rant is scant.
