"480 Minutes" - The Arnoldbucks Edition

Looking for a way to take BAGeL Radio with you? Like, on your commute? Well, it's actually quite easy with an app called Pocket Tunes, which is available for Windows Mobile smartphones, Palm OS smartphones, as well as the iPhone and iPod touch. The fidelity is surprisingly good! Check it out here. It will be even easier to use when BAGeL Radio appears in their tuner, but for now all you have to do is use the Pocket Tunes browser to navigate to and click the yellow play button to get the station streaming right through your phone. Don't forget to bookmark it so you don't have to search for it again.

Today we will have our first round of giveaways for the BAGeL Radio Half Dozenth Birthday Party at Bottom of the Hill featuring Birdmonster, Railcars, and Ricky Lee Robinson. The 18+ show is on Saturday, February 7th, just a week from this Saturday, so get in touch when you hear any of those 3 bands during today's program and you might just win yourself a pair of free tickets. Alternately, buy some no-fee advance tickets here.

Today's show will feature new music from Hot Panda (Edmonton, Canada), Elusive Parallelograms (Milwaukee, WI), The So So Glos (Brooklyn, NY), We Is Shore Dedicated (Berkeley, CA), Cotton Jones (Cumberland, MD), Broken Spindles (Omaha, NE), Hunters, Run! (New York, NY), Cactus's (Nashville, TN), The BPA (Brighton, England), Latvian Radio (Westchester, NY), The Love Language (Raleigh, NC), Mi Ami (San Francisco, CA), Mistress Stephanie & Her Melodic Cat (Austin, TX), The Naked Hearts (New York, NY), Robyn Hitchcock (London, England), and Peter Bjorn and John (Stockholm, Sweden).

Please tune in this and every Friday to "480 Minutes," which runs live from 12 noon to 8 p.m. Eastern Time, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Pacific. You can reach me with requests, comments, corrections, criticisms, praise, etc. via:
