"480 Minutes" The Return of the Marathon

OK, we're back. And there's so much good stuff to get to, I don't even know where to begin. That 500-song playlist I've been panning through ended up being more like 700 songs as I found other things to listen to, and there's still a backlog of CDs I need to get to, but there was some quality in there, let me tell you.

As such today's program will contain a host of never-before-heard on BAGeL Radio music including new Wolf Parade (Montreal, Canada), The Notwist (Munich, Germany), The Cute Lepers (Seattle, WA), Okay (Berkeley, CA), Ladytron (Liverpool, UK), Herman Dune (Sweden), The Charlatans (Manchester, UK), Centro-Matic (Denton, TX), The Chap (London, UK), Cineplexx (Barcelona, Spain), Crayonsmith (Dublin, Ireland), The Dimes (Portland, OR), The Dudley Corporation (Dublin, Ireland), Foxboro Hot Tubs (Oakland, CA), The Gang (Brooklyn, NY), The Harbours (San Francisco, CA), Jason Webley (Seattle, WA), Jeff Wagner's Tunnel Of Love (San Francisco, CA.), Little Beirut (Portland, OR), Mono In VCF (Tacoma, WA), My Morning Jacket (Louisville, KY), Ricky Lee Robinson (Oakland, CA), The Saturday Knights (Seattle, WA), Setting Sun (Hudson Valley, NY), Sigur Ros (Reykjavík, Iceland), Sloan (Toronto, Canada), Southeast Engine (Athens, OH), Sybris (Chicago, IL), Taylor Hollingsworth (Birmingham, AL), The Weeks (Jackson, MS), and 60 Watt Kid (San Francisco, CA).

Today listeners will have a chance to win a DVD copy of the acclaimed film about Joy Division lead singer Ian Curtis, Control, and we continue our ticket giveaway for for The Download Festival at the Shoreline Ampitheatre. The July 19th lineup now includes The Jesus & Mary Chain and Gang Of Four to go along with 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, amongst others.
