"480 Minutes" - Bullshit Artists


Did anyone notice the grifter-in-chief yesterday switch from, "No collusion, no obstruction!" to "No collusion, essentially no obstruction?" It was easy to miss in the maelstrom of madness of Don The Con's administration, but it happened on camera for all to see.  Anyone who doesn't notice this shifting of the posts is playing the role of Charlie Brown to his Lucy with the football.  Some people refuse to see through his transparent bullshit like they did with the whole "Mexico will pay for the wall" promise and I want to meet these people because I have a few bridges to sell. The best bridges.

This week the criminal administration also revoked all of the Washington Post White House reporters' hard press passes, as well as those of many other legitimate news sources. Even though covering the lies disseminated by the administration only serves to amplify them, this represents one more giant step away from having a free press.

In happier news, IDLES are playing tonight in Brooklyn and I'm going to see them. They put on one of the best shows I attended in 2018. In even happier news, Fontaines D.C. are the support act, so I'll get to see FDC for the first time. Two bands I really want to see for the price of one!

Today's 480 Minutes show will feature new songs by Greys (Toronto, Canada, @greysband), IDLES (Bristol, England, @idlesband), John Cozz (Nutley, NJ, @JohnCozzMusic), NOTS (Memphis, TN, @NOTSMEMPHIS), POW! (Los Angeles, CA), Sebadoh (Greenfield, MA, @realSebadoh), Second Still (Los Angeles, CA), and Versing (Seattle, WA, @versingseattle).

480 Minutes 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 480 Minutes episodes from this week in past years, so there will be hosted shows all weekend long.
