"480 Minutes"

Did you hear the news? President Obama did not trade arms for the hostages retrieved from North Korea this week? What? That fact was drowned out by Screaming John Bolton and his Ronald Reagan-worshipping wingnut pals? Damn that left-wing media, always missing the story.

In other news, we had a most excellent Rumble this week thanks in large part due to guest DJ extraordinaire Aaron Axelson of Live105 and Popscene fame. Besides swapping decades of music war stories, having him around always seems to elevate my DJ game and, at this late stage, I can use all the help I can get. Thanks Aaron, AB And The Sea, Company of Thieves, The Owl Mag, FutureSounds, and everyone who made the August Rumble so much fun.

New music getting its BAGeL Radio debut today includes songs by Division Day (Los Angeles, CA), Drug Rug (Cambridge, MA), Final Spins (Seattle, WA), Holiday Shores (Tallahassee, FL), Julian Plenti (Interpol), Netherfriends (Chicago, IL), and Aim Low Kid (San Francisco, CA).

Please tune in today and every Friday to 480 Minutes. The show runs from 9 a.m. until 5 p.m. Pacific Time, please allow me to keep you company for all or part of your Friday. If you miss any portion of 480 Minutes, never fear, the show is rebroadcast on Friday evenings, then twice on Saturday. Listening to it in its entirety can reveal the secrets of the universe, for example how conservatives can stare a distorted, unsustainable healthcare system in the face yet still try to block healthcare reform.
