"480 Minutes" - Unplanned Rerun

Sorry to be the bearer of bad news, but I was under the weather and unable to produce an original show for this week, so today will be a rerun of a previously broadcast edition of 480 Minutes. In fact, there will be 4 different reruns run back-to-back-to-back-to-back, for those of you who might enjoy 30+ straight hours of me, babbling. The first runs from 9 a.m.-5p.m. Pacific Time. Do tune in.

There was a grand plan to follow-up to last week's smash hit "Best Music of 2009" edition of 480 Minutes with a "Best Music of the Oughts" edition this week. Then I got sick. Show fail. Alas, that special edition will have to wait until the new year.

Please check out the Best Music of the Year lists below. If you click a song name, it will take you to the song in iTunes, if you click an album name, that will take you to the corresponding CD on Amazon. If you prefer CD Universe, please use this link. You can also find an iMix of our Top Albums of 2009 (each represented by one song), and iMixies for our Top 50 Songs of 2009 as well as Top Songs 51-100. Using any of those links at to buy music helps the artists and scores a commission for BAGeL Radio, so please, try to use our links as the your for all of your purchases (even non-music goods on Amazon!).

Thanks for sharing another great year of music with us here at BAGeL Radio. I saw some snarky year-end lists this year that stopped at 7 or 8 instead of the standard minimum 10, because, list authors claimed, there just wasn't that much great music released in 2009. Isn't it nice to have a clear view of just how wrong those who put snark ahead of the music really are?

Anyway, enjoy the reruns and sifting through the year-end lists, and best wishes to you and yours for a happy and healthy new year. See you in 2010.
