"480 Minutes" - December? Yeah, Right!

Today's show is live-hosted from 9am-5pm Eastern U.S. Time and features no new music. You read that right. No new music! During Thanksgiving week we take a break from listening to new submissions and do a musical reset with our week-long annual Beatles Cleanse.™ This affords a little time and space to look back at the all the new music we aired this year, listen to it with fresh ears, and decide on our favorites. On 12/18/20 our year-end top-music edition of 480 Minutes will feature a countdown of the top 50 songs of the year plus about 5 hours worth of runners' up.

If you are buying holiday gifts this season please consider less-traditional gifts from local businesses and small businesses who have had a tough year and are about to have the worst winter any of us have experienced. SomaFM is a small business, so please consider gifts from our store, for example the all-new official SomaFM BAGeL Radio t-shirt:

or the tres cool SomaFM cocktail glasses at:

Both will make fantastic gift items this holiday season and as an added bonus help keep us on the air and commercial-free.

You can also support SomaFM with a one-time donation of any amount, or a recurring donation of any amount, to help us cover the costs of royalties and bandwidth and equipment everything else it takes to run 30+ internet radio stations:
