"480 Minutes"

Last chance to help Team BAGeL Radio raise money in the San Francisco AIDS Walk that's happening this weekend. The team is walking for friends lost as well as friends currently living with HIV. Please pledge what you can in support of this effort at the Team BAGeL Radio page. Please do it now.

If you have not seen the iPhone 4 vs. HTC Evo cartoon, please take the next 3.5 minutes to do so. If you are in an office setting, headphones may be appropriate as it contains some salty language. Also, it is laugh out loud funny ("how old fashioned, he wrote out LOL!"). The video is embedded below.

We've got more tickets to give away for a series of Saturday night midnight movies with live music at the Bridge Theatre. The series is called Rocksploitation, and before each film Citizen Midnight ("cinema’s most obnoxiously amazing rock ‘n’ roll band") performs "songs from and inspired by these twisted cinematic masterpieces." Check out the film schedule below in the gig list. Full details at

Now for the 480 Minutes will feature new music from Eastern Conference Champions (Los Angeles, CA via Philladelphia, PA), Elsinore (Champaign, IL), Fading Collection (Seattle, WA), The Goodnight Loving (Milwaukee, WI), Grasscut (Brighton, England), Jaill (Milwaukee, WI), Menomena (Portland, OR), Mystery Jets (London, England), The Orbans (Fort Worth, TX), School Of Seven Bells (Brooklyn, NY), Snake! Snake! Snakes! (Phoenix, AZ), Stornoway (Oxford, England), The Streets On Fire (Chicago, IL), Upstairs Downstairs (San Francisco, CA), Wavves (San Diego, CA), and Young Galaxy (Montreal, Canada).

Please tune in today and every Friday to 480 Minutes between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m. Pacific Time. Well, not next Friday, the 23rd, when there will be no new show, but certainly the following Friday (7/30) when there will be an all-new edition of 480 Minutes featuring City Light live and in person on the air from right here in the BAGeL Radio studio.
