Fuzzy Road - Episode #39


We are going to see what will happen if we put a few playlists up on Spotify.  Playlists containing our top songs of 2013, 2012, 2011, 2010, and 2009, plus the songs from the first 5 Fuzzy Road radio shows have been posted thus far.  You can find them here, or by navigating in Spotify to spotify:user:bagelradio.  If you are a Spotify user please send us your feedback on this experiment -- these playlists will, of course, only contain the music, none of our insightful and clever commentary.

The Fuzzy Road radio show officially starts at 3 p.m. Eastern U.S. Time, so please tune in for 90 minutes of live-hosted garage rock, psych rock, and shoegaze.  Today we might just have a particular emphasis on shoegaze.  You never know.

Fuzzy Road is rebroadcast twice -- on Tuesday nights at 11 p.m. ET, and on Wednesday during the overnight at 5 a.m. ET.

"480 Minutes" - new Gazelle Twin


So this week had me pulling my hair out, what with Taylor Swift lying through her teeth about the reasons she pulled her new album off of Spotify.  Worse still many people (including artists who will ultimately be hurt by this selfish move) who should know better not only believed her, they jumped on social media to tell the world.  Her reason had nothing to do with streaming services devaluing music (Taylor is doing a bang up job of that herself by selling the entire album for 99¢).  No, the real reasons for the snub were (a) publicity, and (b) because her record label, which her family part-owns, is for sale and this move was designed to increase the value of the company thus increasing their bottom line when they cash out. Ms. Swift's decision (like the decision of some artists to publicly bitch about current payouts using misleading numbers comparing apples to Wombats and blaming streaming services for the shit deals they themselves signed with labels) undermines streaming, the only growing area of the recorded music business, and by extension, other artists who don't have the clout and/or greed to do the same.

In this era of the Faux News/hate radio/Murdoch newspapers echo chamber I shouldn't expect that truth still stands a chance of getting in the way of the lie, but I try.  Call me an optimist.  A perennially disappointed optimist.  

Back in the real world of tangible things you can actually hear and enjoy, today on 480 Minutes we will debut new music by Cool Ghouls (San Francisco, CA, @CoolGhouls), DRGN King (Philadelphia, PA, @DRGNkingDom), Gazelle Twin (Brighton, England, @GazelleTwin), King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard (Melbourne, Australia, @KingGizzardBand), Lisa LeBlanc (Rosaireville, NB, Canada,@LisaLeBlancYo), Meiko (Roberta, GA, @meiko),  Plain Speak (Norman, OK, @PlainSpeakMusic), Tesla Rossa (Nashville, TN, @TeslaRossa), Thom Yorke (Radiohead, Oxford, England, @ThomYorke), and ZKPR (Chicago, IL, @ZKPRband).

Please tune in to BAGeL Radio on Fridays from 9 a.m. - 5 p.m. Eastern U.S. Time for the award-winning, live-hosted 480 Minutes program.  The show is rebroadcast Friday evenings at 7 p.m., Saturdays 5 a.m. & 3 p.m., and Sundays at 1 a.m. ET:
