"480 Minutes" - Win Treasure Island Tickets

First of all, we've got tickets to give away to the upcoming Treasure Island Music Festival. No airfare will be provided, but if you can get yourself to the Bay Area on October 17th & 18th, try to win free tickets for the festival today, right here on BAGeL Radio, by listening to the award-winning 480 Minutes program. This year the TIMF lineup features Flaming Lips, MGMT, The Decemberists, Beirut, Grizzly Bear, Passion Pit, Brazilian Girls, Yo La Tengo, Bob Mould, and many others. Tune in and when you hear a song by a Treasure Island band, send an e-mail to with the subject line "Treasure Island 2009" along with your full name, the name of the band, and the name of the song for a chance to win.

Today's edition of 480 Minutes will feature more new music than we've had in months -- over 20 new never-before-heard on BAGeL Radio songs, in fact. Get out your back to school #2 pencils, boys and girls, so you can take notes. Your homework is to buy some of these albums, listen to them incessantly until school starts, then turn all of your friends on to them.

Tune in for new songs by Anna Ternheim (Sweden), The Antlers (Brooklyn, NY), Fanfarlo (London, England), Firs (Cincinnati, OH), Heroes Of Popular Wars (Los Angeles, CA), Lightning Dust (East Vancouver, Canada), My First Earthquake (San Francisco, CA), Park Avenue Music (Sacramento, CA), Ramona Falls (Portland, OR), The Receiver (Columbus, OH), Reigning Sound (Ashville, NC), Sondre Lerche (Bergen, Norway), and YACHT (Portland, OR).

Please tune in today and every Friday to 480 Minutes. The show runs from 9 a.m. until 5 p.m. Pacific Time.
