"480 Minutes" - Safe Mode

Last night as I was finishing up preparations for today's show, my Mac asked me if I wanted to install the latest version of iTunes and a security update. I went ahead with it. Bad move. After installing the security update, the machine would not boot all the way into the operating system. It took about 3 hours of various attempts including safe mode, single-user mode, rebooting from a bootable flash drive -- nothing worked. Ultimately I was able to reinstall the OS from the built-in "recovery partition" and get back to work.  At 4 a.m. No fun. Major issues like these should not accompany simple OS upgrades or, in this case, security updates.  Makes me sad (Mac) and, fair warning: I'm-a be a wreck today.

There was good news and bad news this week: the acting Attorney General of the United States apparently understands not what a subpoena is; Ed Markey and AOC released the outline of the Green New Deal and it's impressive in both it's simplicity and scope; #Individual1 nominated a critic of the World Bank to be the next president of the World Bank; and the stable genius who didn't know Belgium was a country pulled out of an arms treaty with Russia, likely restarting a Cold War-style increase in the means of destruction instead of, say, using those billions to save the planet from the effects of climate change or ensure that everyone in a country boasting nearly 700 billionaires has safe drinking water.

Today's 480 Minutes show will feature new releases by Abjects (London, England, @abjectsband), Cherry Glazerr (Los Angeles, CA, @cherryglazerr), Combo Chimbita (Nueva York, NY, @ combo_chimbita), Deep State (Athens, GA), Flat Worms (Los Angeles, CA), Kiwi Jr. (Toronto, Canada, @kiwijrgroup), The Moses Gun (Chicago, IL, @themosesgun), Tullycraft (Seattle, WA), and Wicca Phase Springs Eternal (Philadelphia, PA, @wiccaphase).

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.

Tune in! ( or, if you have an Alexa, the command  "Alexa, play SomaFM BAGeL Radio" works like a charm).
