"480 Minutes" 8/17/07 - new music!

This week, for the first time in about a month, I got to listen to a ton of new music, which was very exciting (even though most of it was total crap). There were a few gems, thank goodness, and I will debut those today.

Before I tell you what those are I need to tell you that next week (8/24) "480 Minutes" will be a re-run. I will be away for the weekend with 10 of my closest friends, and the house we're staying in doesn't have internet access. Yeah, I know...I gasped, too!

I will have tickets to give away today to the Birdmonster/Eulogies show tomorrow night (Saturday, 8/18/07) at Cafe du Nord, a show I will be DJing. You can buy tickets online -- get some extras and bring friends along, it will be fun.

And now, to today's music, which will include 40 never-before played on BAGeL Radio songs...Misfortune 500 (imagine what you'd hoped the last Walkmen record was going to sound like and throw in a kicking Chameleons cover), Alamo Race Track. Alina Simone, Animal Collective, Augie March, Baby Guts, The Blakes, The Deadly Syndrome, Emily Haines & The Soft Skeleton, Eulogies, Imperial Teen, Jumbling Towers, Mono Taxi, The New Pornographers, No Age, Numbers, Oliver Future, Portugal The Man, Schooner, The Stabilisers, Stars, Stereo Total, and You Say Party! We Say Die!

Please tune in to today's edition of "480 Minutes" which runs live from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Pacific Time every Friday (but not next week, when it will be a re-run!). As always you can request songs via:
