"480 Minutes" - Barack 'N Roll Next Week!

Happy Friday. Today I have a show to pimp and it's not even mine -- it's Mrs. BAGeL's. She is one of the organizers of Barack 'N Roll at the Independent this coming Wednesday, October 15th -- please buy a ticket. The event will feature BAGeL Radio favorites These United States (Lexington, KY), Big Light (San Francisco, CA), and an X-tra Special Guest who also just happens to be a BAGeL Radio all-time favorite. Even more importantly, the event is a benefit for, and organization that matches up folks willing to travel to swing states with folks who have air miles, hotel points, and/or cash to contribute towards their canvassing efforts. It's a great way to get folks involved in the election while making sure that our next President was the President of the Harvard Law Review and chose a running-mate of deep knowledge, instead of the fellow who graduated 894th out of 899 at Annapolis and thinks Sarah "spectacularly ill-informed" Palin is the best choice to be one 72 year-old heart beat from the presidency. I have a feeling it's going to take a person who is good at math and economics to get us through the next eight years, don't you?

Anyway, please buy a ticket to the event, whether or not you can attend. All of the door money is going towards the cause, so think of it as a donation.

New music today will include songs by Margo And The Nuclear So And So's (Indiannapolis, IN), The Sea And Cake (Chicago, IL), Fucked Up (Toronto, Canada), Oasis (Manchester, England), Other Lives (Stillwater, OK), Crooked Fingers (Denver, CO), International Jetsetters (Oxford, England), Pit Er Pat (Chicago, IL), I'm From Barcelona (Jönköping, Sweden), Wax Fang (Lexington, KY), Boo And Boo Too (Lawrence, KS), PH10 (Brooklyn, NY), The Standard (Portland, OR), and Vivian Girls (Brooklyn, NY).

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 8 p.m., then twice more on Saturday. On Saturday night at midnight we return to regular BAGeL Radio programming.

Still haven't had time to go back through all the photos from late August through...well, through now. Some day...when the stock market rebounds, perhaps. In the meantime, every once in a while I get good ones using the iPhone, so I'll post those.
