"480 Minutes" - Mem10 Takeover


The Orange Menace this week publicly wished a child sex slave trafficker well. Said sociopathic know-nothing-in-chief was invited to throw out the first pitch at a Yankees game in August. Adding insult to injury the team I've rooted for since childhood dispatched the greatest NY baseball player of my lifetime to the White House to play catch with and further normalize the man who can't stop lying or saying: "Person. Man. Woman. Camera. TV." For the first time ever, this Yankees fan booed Mariano Rivera. It felt icky but it was definitely the correct response. The good news for The Orange Menace is that there won't be any fans in the Stadium to boo him -- his continuing failure of leadership has ensured that no fans will be allowed at MLB games.  We are seeing record numbers of coronavirus infections each week, even as much of the rest of the world has managed to control the spread of COVID-19.

Today's show will be live-hosted from 9am-5pm Eastern U.S. Time and feature new music by Jack Oblivion (Memphis, TN), Opossums (Memphis, TN, @), The Sea At Midnight (Los Angeles, CA), TiƱa (London, England, @teenyahh), The Toy Trucks (Memphis, TN), Tyler Keith (Oxford, MS), Tunde Adebimpe (TVOTR), Turnstyles (Memphis, TN), and The Wolfhounds (London, England).

Note: all of those Mem10 records are courtesy of a single label, Black And Wyatt Records.

The marathon 8-hour show is followed by 2 hours of uninterrupted music and is then rebroadcast in its entirety beginning at 7 p.m. Friday,  5 a.m. and 3 p.m. Saturday, and one last time at 1 a.m. on Sunday. That is followed by a rebroadcast of this week's live-hosted psych and garage rock Fuzzy Road radio show at 11 a.m., then a couple of old 480 Minutes episodes from this week in past years, making for hosted shows all weekend long.

Tune in and chat with fellow listeners on Slack. Hanging out and yakking it up with real humans in a virtual conference room is (usually, and especially these isolating times) better than not hanging out and yakking it up with other humans.
