"480 Minutes" - New Flaming Lips

What are you going to be for Halloween this year? The wife is all over me about picking a costume, and the best thing I can can come up with is, "I just wanna be me!" Any ideas?

Today on BAGeL Radio we will feature brand-spanking new music from Flaming Lips (Norman, OK), The Authors (Montreal, Canada), CF Donohoe (Glasgow/Dallas), Clare & The Reasons (Brooklyn, NY), Exene Cervenka (X), Free Energy (Philadelphia, PA), The Ghost Is Dancing (Toronto, Canada), James Husband (Athens, GA), and Kurt Vile (Philadelphia, PA).

As always, your feedback on the latest playlist additions and whatever else is on your mind will be most appreciated Write to us at, and please take the poll below. Also, I don't know how much longer I can bring myself to argue with "flat earthers" on the subject of radio's promotional value, but I felt the need to reply to a piece published in The Huffington Post that might as well come out of the RIAA (Recording Industry Association of America) press office. The HuffPo didn't deem my edited-for-space comment worthy of publishing, so I published the comment as a whole here. Please read it and, whenever you hear "the music industry" aka the RIAA aka the major labels complain on behalf of artists, remember that "the "the music industry" aka the RIAA aka the major labels have been the vampires feasting on the blood of artists for decades.

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