480 Minutes - Rumble-related Rerun!

Good morning!

Many many thanks to everyone who came out to Cafe du Nord on Wednesday specifically for the BAGeL Radio 7th birthday party. I really appreciate it. It makes me giddy to look back at the more than 300 (!) episodes of 480 Minutes, plus interviews and BAGeL Radio on-air acoustic performances. Who knew the little independent station that could...would...reach so many people? Not I, my friends. Not I.

Thanks also to everyone who came out to see the bands, the event co-sponsors (The Owl Mag and Future Sounds), my co-DJ (Carlton), and of course the bands (Jaguar Love, My First Earthquake, and Butterfly Bones).

Due in part to that party, which also celebrated the 5th anniversary of The Owl Mag and our first Rumble at Cafe du Nord, I didn't get nearly enough sleep this week nor have nearly enough time to compile a new episode of 480 Minutes, so today's program will be a rerun of a previously broadcast show. Next Friday (2/12) we'll have a new show featuring new stuff from Malachai (Bristol, England), Polysics (Japan), Seth Augustus (San Francisco, CA), and Cold War Kids (Long Beach, CA). See you then!

Oh, and if you are on Facebook please join the BAGeL Radio group. Just search for "bagelradio" in the search window, or click this link. Thanks!
