"480 Minutes" - We're Ba-a-ack!

Following one planned and one unplanned Friday without a new episode of 480 Minutes, we're back today with a brand new live show. We've missed you, and goodness gracious, we have a massive batch of new music to debut for you today, some of which will also get played at Milk Bar on Wednesday (6/9) at the June Rumble featuring City Light (SF), Leopold & His Fiction (SF), and Chasing Kings (LA).

Today on 480 Minutes we will feature new music from Band Of Horses (Charleston, SC), Bell Gardens (Silver Lake, CA), The Black Keys (Akron, OH), Cary Ann Hearst (Charleston, SC), Gil Scott-Heron (Chicago, IL), Hexes & Ohs (Montreal, Canada), Hot Hot Heat (Vancouver, Canada), Hunting Club (Minneapolis, MN), Katzenjammer (Oslo, Norway), Magic Bullets (San Francisco, CA), Neon Indian (Brooklyn, NY), Peggy Sue (Brighton, England), The Prids (Portland, OR), Spouse (Portland, ME), Suckers (Brooklyn, NY), Typhoon (Portland, OR), Villagers (Dublin, Ireland), We Are Scientists (New York, NY), and The Young Veins (Topanga, CA). We might hear some Buzzcocks songs today, too, as a warm-up for their show in Oakland tonight.

By the way, there is now a mobile-friendly version of the BAGeL Radio blog. Check out and bookmark on your mobile device for easy reading.

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

Sound advice found in Gil Scott-Heron's I'm New Here CD booklet:
“There is a proper procedure for taking advantage of any investment. Music, for example. Buying a CD is an investment. To get the maximum, you must listen to it for the first time under optimum conditions. Not in your car or on a portable player through a headset. Take it home. Get rid of all distractions (even her or him). Turn off your cell phone. Turn off everything that rings or beeps or rattles or whistles. Make yourself comfortable. Play your CD. Listen all the way through. Think about what you got. Think about who would appreciate this investment. Decide if there is someone to share this with. Turn it on again. Enjoy yourself.”
