"480 Minutes" - New Spoon!

Hello and happy Friday.

This week I'd like to call your attention to an anti Karl Rove project by bands who are pissed off about the idea of the man behind Dubyah's political career cashing in further on his destruction of the country by publishing a book. It's called Project: Courage and Consequence. Remember when a couple of editors of The Nation published a book called Going Rouge the same day that Sarah Palin's book, Going Rogue, hit the newsstands? This is the same idea, only with noisy rock bands instead of a collection of essays.

Today 480 Minutes will debut new songs as well a few that have been around for a while but have not yet had their BAGeL Radio debut. The show will feature music from Beach House (Baltimore, MD), Charlotte Gainsbourg (Paris, France), Eels (Los Angeles, CA), The Films (Charleston, SC), Four Tet (London England), Galactic (New Orleans, LA), Nouvelle Vague (Paris, France), Spoon (Austin, TX), Surfer Blood (West Palm Beach, FL), Vampire Weekend (New York, NY), and Yawn (Chicago, IL).

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