"480 Minutes" featuring new Walkmen, One For The Team

Just two weeks until the next BAGeL Radio Presents... event, a rockshowdancepartyhybrid featuring Scissors For Lefty, Head Like A Kite, and some DJ named Ted from BAGeL Radio. Mark your calendars: Saturday August 30th at The Rickshaw Stop. Tune into "480 Minutes" on Fridays from 9a.m to 5p.m. Pacific Time to win tickets, or just go buy a few from the venue website.

New music today will include songs by The Ettes (San Francisco, CA), Kristoffer Ragnstam (Gothenburg, Sweden), Obi Best (Los Angeles, CA), Konrad (Rock Island, IL), Lower Class Revolt (San Francisco, CA), One For The Team (Minneapolis, MN), Man/Miracle (Oakland, CA), and The Walkmen (New York, NY).

Today's show may be something of a classics show -- DJ iPod has been spinning me lots of 4- and 5-star songs from the 68k-song BAGeL Radio library this week, which makes me want to do an all-classics show. No can do, too much good new stuff to debut and too much strong recent stuff, but there will be a higher percentage of all-time alt-rock greats than usual.

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