Welcome Back "480 Minutes" Friday 6/20

For the first time since "480 Minutes" settled into it's regular Friday time slot over three years ago, there have been back-to-back weeks without a new episode. Apologies to all of those who tuned in expecting to hear the newest of the new, all presented live and with the interactive bits like IMs, e-mails, and the StudioCam chat room these past two Fridays. I have missed it too and look forward to getting back on the mic.

This Friday, the first day of summer here in the U.S., will feature the return of "480 Minutes," live and in-person from 9a.m. (Pacific Time) until 5p.m.

I have a backlog of nearly 500 already-encoded songs to listen to, plus several dozen as-yet unopened packages to go through, so this show is bound to be chock full of never-before-heard on BAGeL Radio music including (but hardly limited to) new Wolf Parade, The Notwist, Earlimart, The Cute Lepers, Okay, Ladytron, Herman Dune, and The Charlatans.

Please tune in Friday and help me get back into the swing of things. Listeners will have a chance this week to win a copy of the acclaimed film about Joy Division lead singer Ian Curtis, Control, as well as tickets for The Download Festival at the Shoreline Ampitheatre. The event is on July 19th and will feature bands including The Jesus & Mary Chain (newly added), Gang Of Four (newly added), 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. Buy tickets here for just $20.
