"480 Minutes" - The Classic Rock Edition

Why "The Classic Rock Edition?" I don't know. Maybe it's because the wife went to see Foreigner at the Fillmore last night, so when I was compiling the playlist that influenced me. Never fear, there is no Foreigner in today's playlist, but there are songs from classic rock juke box heroes like The Rolling Stones, The Doors, Jimi Hendrix, and Queen, amongst others.

More importantly, today on BAGeL Radio we will feature brand-spanking new music from Amazing Baby (Brooklyn, NY), The Black Hollies (Jersey City, New Jersey), The Gossip (Portland, Oregon), The Headlights (Champaign, IL), Hockey (Portland, Oregon), Noah And The Whale (London, England), Pearl Jam (Seattle, WA), Pet Lions (Chicago, IL), A Place To Bury Strangers (Brooklyn, NY), Times New Viking (Columbus, OH), Two Hours Traffic (Prince Edward Island, Canada), Vivian Girls (Brooklyn, NY), and Windmill (London, England), featuring perhaps the finest cover art of 2009 :
As always, we'd love to hear your feedback on the latest playlist additions and whatever else is on your mind. Write to us at

Please tune in today and every Friday to 480 Minutes between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m. Pacific Time.

Many thanks to DJ Aaron Axelsen of Live 105/Popscene and DJ Tom Thump, as well as to the bands who performed, Man/Miracle and Fitz & The Tantrums, for making our final Rumble at Harlot great fun. It will be sad to leave our home venue of the past two years, but we look forward to getting started at the Rumble SF's new home, The Rickshaw Stop, on Wednesday 11/4.
