"480 Minutes" - New Coathangers!

We were fortunate enough to see Viagra Boys first-ever U.S. performance this week and they were good. Perhaps a bit same-y sounding after a while, and their unholy stew of early PIL, Butthole Surfers, The Fall, Jon Spencer, and Giorgio Moroder is not for everyone, however Sebastian Murphy is an undeniably captivating frontman.

This week President NoEmmy was stung with a 420-0 rebuke from the House of Representatives which voted to make the Mueller Report public. Of course William Barr was hand-picked to be the U.S. Attorney General for the sole purpose of keeping that report from ever becoming public and he will likely do what his master (who is not supposed to be his master, by the way, the Justice Department is supposed to be independent from the executive branch) demands.

Also this week while watching FOX News President WKHCBSC (who knew healthcare could be so complicated?) Tweeted that climate change is not real and Tweeted about his failing Scottish golf course, threatening the US-UK relationship over his owing fees for a legal battle he started with Scotland and lost. Again: a sitting U.S. President threatened an ally over *his own personal finances* and congress yawned.

Finally, on the same day a U.S. court decided that merchant of death gun manufacturer Remington could be sued over the marketing over the rifle used to slaughter 20 first graders and six adults in Newtown, CT, 40 people were slaughtered with similar semi-automatic weapons in an Islamophobic right wing terrorist attack in Christchurch, New Zealand.

Today's 480 Minutes show will feature new songs by The Coathangers (Atlanta, GA, @TheCoathangers), Kiwi Jr. (Toronto, Canada, @kikijrgroup), Pond (Perth, Australia, @PONDband), Squid (Brighton, England, @squidbanduk), and Stella Donnelly (Perth, Australia, @stelladonnelly).

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).
