"480 Minutes" 6/22/07-new White Stripes

This week's 480 Minutes missive must begin with the news that once again BAGeL Radio finds itself in the news. I was on the 6 o'clock news last night. Seriously. Read the story and/or watch the video here.

If you don't know what the big to do is, read my summary of what's going on with internet radio/ the CRB/ SoundExchange/ The RIAA and how this has lead to BAGeL Radio appearing in the news a bunch lately, read this blog post.

And now to the important stuff...the music! Today's "480 Minutes" program will include new songs by The White Stripes (the album is amazing!), Gogol Bordello, The Polyphonic Spree, The Icarus Line, and a selection of John Lennon covers from the Instant Karma-Save Darfur compilation put out by Amnesty International. Artists include The Flaming Lips, U2, Jaguares, and Green Day. Today's program will also feature the stuff from last week that I didn't get to play (ah, technical difficulties) including Airiel, Arks, The Foundry Field Recordings, Pants Pants Pants, The Beasts of Eden, Block, Panters, and Sean Na Na.

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