"480 Minutes" - Happy 2009!

Good morning and welcome to the 2009 inaugural edition of "480 Minutes." 2009 has been anything but boring in these first couple of weeks, and I'm excited to get back on the air to play you new stuff and perhaps chat a bit about why Sanjay "Dr. No" Gupta should not be our next Surgeon General.

While I still have your attention, it is my pleasure to announce the BAGeL Radio Half Dozenth Birthday Party. Yes, it's true, the "Little Station That Could" turns 6 years old on 2/1, and to celebrate we're having a party our favorite venue, The Bottom of the Hill, on Saturday 2/7 featuring:
Ricky Lee Robinson

As for today's show, it will feature new music today from Chris T-T (Brighton/London, England), Lonely, Dear (Jönköping, Sweden), Foreign Orange (Portland, OR), Golden Error (Brooklyn, NY), Willoughby (Los Angeles, CA), DJ Signify (Brooklyn, NY), Fires Of Rome (Brooklyn, NY), Padre Pio (Brooklyn, NY), Black Peter Group (New York), and Common (Chicago, IL).

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