"288,000 Minutes" - Do The Math!

Today's 480 Minutes program will for a second straight week debut far less new music than usual for all the same sad reasons as last week. Artists, you need better representation, the people you are paying are not earning the money you pay them, they are stealing it.

I trimmed a good deal of vitriol to shorten that opening paragraph by about 75% because instead of being pissed off I should be celebrating -- today's episode is the 600th in the 14-year existence of 480 Minutes and that's a lot of minutes. I am kinda proud of it, and more than a little shocked. It warms my withered, bitter little heart to know that some of you have been listening to the show since 2004 (and the station since 2003), and others have been listening for years and years, too.  Thanks for that.

Despite that glimmer of positivity, between my sinus issues, the dearth of good (and/or usable) submissions, and Sweet Potato Stalin's insistence on diminishing humanity daily via Tweet, I remain grumbly.

I tried to come up with a way to make this show special but ultimately decided that episode #600 was going to be a lot like episodes 500, 400, 300, 200, and 100 -- that is, just another episode.

Today's BAGeL Radio debuts will include new music today from Black Moth Super Rainbow (Pittsburgh, PA, @HouseOfBMSR), La Luz (Los Angeles via Seattle, @LaLuzers), Las Rosas (Brooklyn, NY, @las_rosa_etc), and Subsonics (Atlanta, GA).

The show is live-hosted from 9 a.m. until 5 p.m. Eastern U.S. Time and is followed by 2 hours of uninterrupted music.  The show is then rebroadcast in it's entirety beginning at 7 p.m., then again on Saturday at 5 a.m. and 3 p.m., and one final time on Sunday at 1 a.m., followed by a rebroadcast of this week's Fuzzy Road radio show at 11 a.m. and then a couple of old episodes of 480 Minutes from this week during years gone by -- it's all-Ted all-weekend.

Tune in!
