To paraphrase Mark Twain, the rumors of our death have been greatly exaggerated. BAGeL Radio is still on the air and streaming, now via a different service. Apologies to those of you who had the BAGeL Radio stream bookmarked in your player and/or browser windows. The stream URL has changed. For now please use:

At some point soon we hope to have a better solution. In the meantime, please do the one-time free sign-up with Live365, it's quick and easy.

By the way, next week (Wednesday 3/4) is The Rumble. I'll be DJing with favorite partner-in-crime Aaron Axelsen of Live105, plus there will be intimate live mini-sets by Lilofee and Hot Challenge. RSVP here ( for free admission, and forward that RSVP info to your friends so that they can get on the list, too.
