"480 Minutes" - Going Solo


Don't you hate it when a member of a band you love announces they are "going solo?" Too often the exiting band member flops on their own, or the band flops having not realized how important the ejected member was...the hubris is apparent and it just sucks for everyone.

Then there are occasions when such splits work out well for everyone. Fingers crossed this is one of those times:

BAGeL Radio is going solo. We had a marvelous 10-year run working with SomaFM (following about 7 years of trying to convince them to let us in the door!), and now the time has come to find out if BAGeL Radio can sink or swim out in the world on its own.

To be clear: SomaFM isn't going anywhere, it will continue to operate as we've known and loved it for decades now, it will just be a bit more streamlined to begin the new year.

This is an amicable split with no hard feelings. We love everything about SomaFM. BAGeL Radio was incredibly fortunate to be part of the SomaFM family, without which we most likely would not be looking ahead to celebrating our 19th (!) year of existence on February 1st, 2022.

The remainder of 2021 will be a transition period as we try out various streaming modes and methods, what merch to create and where, and all sorts of exciting new challenges. It's not at all clear what BAGeL Island will look like, but we'll keep you apprised of new developments here on bagelradio.com and (going back to our roots!) via our new mailing list, and oh hey speakiing of which, please sign up for our mailing list that will definitely not SPAM you ever no way no how no not I: https://bit.ly/BAGeLNews.

We ask for both your patience with and feedback on these trial runs as we figure out how to make this work.

TL;DR (fka "in summary"):

-SomaFM will no longer carry BAGeL Radio content as of 1/1/22

-the SomaFM store is already no longer carrying BAGeL Radio merch

-BAGeL Radio loves, respects, and is forever grateful to SomaFM for too many things to list now, maybe someday we'll get to all of those ways when memoir-writing commences.

Back to the present: thanks for all of the concern about your host's teeth. The good news: turns out the tooth which had previously undergone root canal surgery is just fine! The not-so-good news: the tooth behind it needs a root canal.

So...how's your week going?

Today we will debut a bevy of new music including songs by Corridor (Montreal, Canada, @CorridorMTL), Guided By Voices (Dayton, OH, @_GuidedByVoices), The Greeting Committee (Kansas City, KS, @TheGCBand), Kundalini Genie (Glasgow, Scotland, @KundaliniGenie), Lala Lala (Chicago, IL, @LalaLalaMusic), and Pond (Perth, Australia, @PondBand).

"480 Minutes" - My Teeth Hurt


A couple of years ago I had a root canal. In recent months that same tooth has given me some trouble, and suddenly this week it's full-on barking. This has me quite confused -- I thought the root canal procedure removed the nerve. If so, how is it that I am feeling pain?

Great pain, like that of the rock-eating shaggy lasgna Horta that Spock mind-melded with on Star Trek.

This show is dedicated to everyone suffering with tooth pain (shout out LJO!).

So...how's your week going?

Today we will debut a bevy of new music including songs by Ada Lea (Montreal, Canada, @AdaLeaMusic), Caleb Landry Jones (Los Angeles, CA), Cheekface (Los Angeles, CA, @cheekfaceREAL), Death Valley Girls (Los Angeles, CA, @DeathValleyGrls), Ducks Ltd (Toronto, Ontario, Canada, @DucksLtdBand), Erica Nockalls (England, @EricaNockalls), Film School (SF/LA, CA, @filmschoolmusic), Grady Strange (Los Angeles, CA, @gradystraaange), The Shivas (Portland, OR, @TheShivas), and Wet Leg (Isle of Wight, England, @WetLegBand).

"480 Minutes" - October, You Say?


Today we will debut new music by no one. Absolutely no debuts today. Not because this week's submissions were lame, but because this week was lame and did not allow me to catch up on any new releases or even many of the ones I'd fallen behind on in September (thanks, Ida!).

The show will be done on-the-fly. What's going to happen? Maybe something bad, maybe something good. We don't know. 
 


You'll have to tune in to find out.

So...how's your week going?
