"480 Minutes" - Live From Macworld!

(Note: the start of today's show has been delayed by Stupid Human Error. I hope to be able to switch to the remote broadcast by 9:45 a.m. Pacific Time)

Yesterday at Macworld I got to speak with Steven Haines, the Executive Director of the Stern Grove Festival, you can check out the interview here.

Today is the last day of Macworld, and BAGeL Radio will be broadcasting the weekly "480 Minutes" program live from the event. Stop by the SFSU College of Extended Learning booth (Moscone West, 4347) if you are going to be at the Expo, you might just get yourself a BAGeL Radio pin (while supplies last!) . Today we will be chatting live with two SFSU Digital Media educators, Craig Abaya (Director of the Digital Video Intensive program) and John Bendich (of the Music/Recording Industry program).

As with any remote broadcast, there is a chance that the stream will be interrupted briefly at the start and end of the show. Apologies in advance if that happens to you -- I hope you will forgive me and relaunch the station.

Two 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 featuring great music from Peloton (SF), Lemon Sun (LA), and Audio Out Send (Oakland). You can and should buy advance tickets right here, right now. We will have some tickets to give away for that show during today's broadcast, so any time you hear a song by the bands that are playing, get in touch and you just might be a lucky winner. And by the way, it's an all-ages show, so feel free to bring the kids, little siblings, nieces and nephews, etc.

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 Love Is Chemicals (SF, CA) (album of the year so far), Chris Walla (of Death Cab For Cutie), British Sea Power (Brighton, England), Cat Power (Miami, FL), Bob Mould (Washington, DC), Clock Hands Strangle (Calvary Bay, FL), The Helio Sequence (Portland, OR), Jack PeƱate (London, England), Lightspeed Champion (UK), Rafter (Sebastopol, CA), Rivers Cuomo (home recordings from Weezer front man), Scary Mansion (Brooklyn, NY), Times New Viking (Columbus, OH), The Whigs (Athens, GA), The White Stripes (a new B-side), and I would be playing something from Faunts (Edmonton, Canada), if only the term "radio edit" had been considered and acted upon before this was sent out. The best song on the record is over 8 minutes long. Come on, guys. Get real. That's not gonna get airplay.
