"480 Minutes" - #701. Yawn.


How anticlimactic. Last week was our 700th show. Seven hundred! That's more episodes than The Simpsons, and those jaundiced freaks had a 14-year head start! And this week? 701. Bo-ring.


Summer is always slow for new releases, and I'm sure that lockdowns and job losses and illness and death have also negatively affected the recording and releasing of new music this year, so it's no surprise that this was a 3rd consecutive week of fewer submissions than usual, and lower overall quality as well. That said, there was some cool stuff in there!

Today's show will be live-hosted from 9am-5pm Eastern U.S. Time and feature new music by Afor Gashum (Tel Aviv, Israel), Beachtape (Brighton, England, @beachtapeband), Jay Som (covering Soccer Mommy),  Mattiel (covering the Beastie Boys), The Vacant Lots (Brooklyn, NY, @TheVacantLots, and We Were Promised Jetpacks (Edinburgh, Scotland, @WWPJ).

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 final time at 1 a.m. on Sunday. That is followed by a rebroadcast of a Fuzzy Road radio show at 11 a.m. and 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.
