"480 Minutes" - 2008 Begins!

2008 begins in earnest musically this week -- for the first time since the start of December, there was a rush of new submissions this week, some of which were quite good including The Battle Royale and Tender Forever.

Before we get to the rest of the new playlist additions, it is my duty to inform you that 3 weeks from today is the BAGeL Radio 5th Birthday Party at Bottom of the Hill. That's Friday, February 1st, 2008 -- mark your calendar, it will be a fun night.

Also, as reported last week BAGeL Radio will be broadcasting live from the MacWorld Expo next week (1/15-1/18), so if you're there, be sure to stop by the SFSU College of Extended Learning booth (Moscone West, 4347) and say hi. I'll be the guy wearing headphones.

Please tune in to "480 Minutes" today and every Friday. The show is live from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Pacific Time.

Today's show will feature new music from The Battle Royale (Minneapolis, MN), Tender Forever (Olympia, WA), Ungdomskulen (Bergen, Norway), The Hard Lessons (Detroit, MI), The Harpeth Trace (Los Angeles, CA), King Of Prussia (Athens, GA), The Teenagers (London, UK, and Paris, France), selections from the Juno soundtrack (including Belle & Sebastian, The Kinks, etc.), some Pixies covers (Mogwai, Joy Zipper), plus a jingle that Cloud Cult (Minneapolis, MN) recorded for the funniest blog on the planet, The Sneeze. I'm green with envy, and yes, that was a mucous joke.

Please get in touch during the show (9 a.m.-5 p.m. Pacific Time) via:
