"480 Minutes" 5/25/07 - new Spoon, TMBG, Jim Morrison (kinda)

Some people got mad at me for the blog post below. They say I am being too harsh on the poor, misunderstood folks at SoundExchange. Screw SoundExchange, and screw those who refuse to see SX for what it is: a front for the RIAA in it's latest attempt to gain a stranglehold on all possible media outlets.

Uh, errrr, uh, yes, well, uh, thank you, Jim. And now back to our regularly scheduled programming...

The next BAGeL Radio Presents... event is only days away (5/29), please tell your friends about it, blog about it, post a note about it at the office, and buy your tickets in advance here. The featured band of the night is San Francisco's own Magic Bullets, whose most excellent debut album is released that day. Already 3 songs from A Child But In Life Yet A Doctor In Love have been in regular rotation at BAGeL Radio, making the album one of the Top Albums of 2007 (So Far). (The rest of that list will be revealed during the 6/22/07 edition of "480 Minutes" and is likely to also include The Wombats and The National). Support for Magic Bullets comes in the form of Berkeley's The Morning Benders and SF's Rescue Me.

Today's show will include new music by They Might Be Giants, Amateurs, Satellite Party (Perry Farrell's new outfit, which has its moments, including a song featuring the first "new" Jim Morrison vocal track in about 30 years), Lavender Diamond, Diamond Jim, Tuatara, HeadQuarters (Brooklyn's long overdue answer to The Stone Roses?), Saturna (shoegaze part 2), Les Sans Culottes, Trevor Childs ("anybody who says they got god on their side makes me terrified"), and Spoon.

Please tune in, the program runs from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Pacific Time, and don't forget you can request songs and stuff via:
