"480 Minutes" - Be Good To Each Other

At the risk of sounding like a goddamned dirty hippie, please be good to each other. Much stress and negativity is permeating the ether right now. Some of the causes have existed for decades, some of those have spiked of late, some are relatively new and/or taking new, more in-your-face forms, and we're all dealing with these stressors. Some deal better than others, some seemingly deal better than others, but we're all dealing, all in need of a little extra rope, a little extra kindness, or if you can spare it, a lot of extra rope and lot of extra kindness.

For people with critical thinking skills these are dark times. Please do what you can to make them a little less dark for those fellow critical thinkers you come into contact with.

Even a tiny little thing like pausing to hold a door for a stranger, who then says "thank you," will brighten both of your days. And if that stranger then holds the door for the next person, and that person gets an appreciative "thank you..."

STFU, I am not a goddamned dirty hippie. I cut my hair years ago.

Today's 480 Minutes show will feature new songs by Cosmonauts (Los Angeles, CA, @__cosmonauts__), Courtney Barnett (Melbourne, Australia, @CourtneyMelba), Fat White Family (London, England, @FatWhiteFamilyTW), Grace Ives (Queens, NY, @GraceIves), Guided By Voices (Dayton, OH, @_GuidedByVoices), Money For Rope (Melbourne, Australia, @MoneyForRope), The Mountain Goats (@Mountain_Goats), and Tacocat (Seattle, WA, @tacocats).

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). SomaFM channels are also available on many set top boxes and home audio systems.
