"480 Minutes" - Best of 2008 So Far

It's a special show this week -- it's the Best of 2008 (so far) show, featuring a countdown of the best albums of 2008 to date beginning at 11 a.m. Pacific Time. The segment is scheduled to run until 1 p.m.

We will also have a late-afternoon visit from Conor Jonathan of one of our favorite Bay Area bands, [the] caseworker, whose music has gotten excellent listener feedback here on BAGeL Radio since before the release of their debut album in 2003. And I kinda like them, too. Tune in at 4 to hear about the band and the new record they are working on now.

This show will also be the first in a series during which we will have tickets to give away to the Download Festival at Shoreline on July 19th. The lineup includes Atmosphere & Brother Ali, Brand New, Mute Math, Yeasayer, Sia, M83, Mates of State, The Whigs, William Fitzsimmons, Cut Copy, Datarock, Flosstradamus, RJD2, Duke Spirit, Tapes n Tapes, Blitzen Trapper, Louis XIV, Airborne Toxic Event, and De Novo Dahl. Tune in to win tickets this week and for the next several weeks. Tickets go on sale tomorrow, Saturday 5/31/08 at 10 a.m. Pacific Time, for the value price of $20.

Besides the "Best of..." stuff today's show will feature songs never before heard on BAGeL Radio including music by Supergrass (Oxford, UK), Anthem In (Brooklyn, NY), Awesome Color (MI), Free Kitten (New York, NY), Loto Ball Show (Chicago, IL), Duffy (Wales, UK), Love As Laughter (Brooklyn, NY), Remote Control Frequencies (Chicago, IL), and West Indian Girl (Los Angeles, CA).

Please tune in to "480 Minutes" today and every Friday. The show runs live from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Pacific Time, then is rebroadcast starting at 7 p.m., then twice more on Saturday. On Saturday night at midnight we return to regular BAGeL Radio programming.
