"480 Minutes" - 9/18/09

Hello! For a plain old .mp3 stream, try clicking the yellow on black 480 Minutes logo to the left. Let me know if it works for you and what you think.

It is my duty to inform you that today will be your last chance to throw your hat in the ring to win Treasure Island Music Festival tickets. Listen to the award-winning 480 Minutes program and when you hear a song by a Treasure Island band during the show (9 a.m. - 5 p.m. Pacific Time), 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. We'll be awarding the tickets during next Friday's (9/25) program.

Tune in to 480 Minutes (9 a.m. - 5 p.m. Pacific Time, only on BAGeL Radio) for new songs by Birdmonster (San Francisco, CA), Drummer (Akron, OH), The Ettes (Nashville, TN), Frank Turner (Winchester, England), Le Loup (Washington, DC), The Pastels/Tenniscoats (Glasgow Scotland/Tokyo, Japan), Polite Sleeper (Brooklyn, NY), Princeton (Los Angeles, CA), The Rifles (London, England), and Why? (Oakland, CA) .

TIMF 2009, by the way, is scheduled for October 17th & 18th, and will feature Flaming Lips, MGMT, The Decemberists, Beirut, Grizzly Bear, Passion Pit, Brazilian Girls, Yo La Tengo, Bob Mould, Edward Sharpe and The Magnetic Zeros, Sleepy Sun, and many others.
