"480 Minutes" - Say Bye Bye July

Do you care which beer the President and his guests had on the White House lawn yesterday? Really? You do? OK, well, then in that case my favorite beer is Boddington's Best Bitter, although these days when I drink alcohol it tends to be Maker's Mark. One can't get Boddies here in the U.S., at least not the kind I like.

And now that we have that music getting its BAGeL Radio debut today includes songs by ApSci (New York, NY), Care Bears On Fire (Brooklyn, NY), Division Day (Los Angeles, CA), The Dø (Finland/France), The Envy Corps (DeMoines, IA), Fruit Bats (Chicago/Portland), Generationals (New Orleans, LA), Care Bears On Fire (Brooklyn, NY), Summer Cats (Melbourne, Australia), Throw Me The Statue (Seattle, WA), Yppah (Houston, TX), and We Were Promised Jetpacks (Glasgow, Scotland).

Please tune in today and every Friday to 480 Minutes. The show runs rom 9a.m. until 5p.m. Pacific Time, please keep me company for all or part of your Friday. If you miss any portion of 480 Minutes, never fear, the show is rebrodcast on Friday evenings, then twice on Saturday. Listening to it in its entirety can reveal the secrets of the universe, for example what kind of beer Gilbert Godfried prefers.
