"480 Minutes" - RIP Gerard Smith of TV on The Radio

This week Gerard Smith, bass player of TV On The Radio, lost his battle with lung cancer at age 36. Our condolences go out to the band, Gerard's family, and everyone else that knew and loved him. More on Gerard Smith here.

Moving along to more standard Friday fare, today we will be debuting many new playlist additions including music from
Boat (Seattle, WA), Boats (Winnipeg, Canada), Gorillaz (London, England), Here We Go Magic (New York, NY), Phantom Kicks (San Francisco, CA), Sennen (Norwich, England), tUnE-yArDs (Oakland, CA), and Young Widows (Lousiville, KY).

Also, we're looking forward to seeing Kurt Vile tonight at Bottom of the Hill, and partying it up at Jodie's birthday party beforehand -- happy birthday, Jodie!

By the way, Loudcaster (and thousands of other sites) experienced extended downtime yesterday due to a major outage at their service provider, Amazon Web Services. We hope that the problems have been fixed and will not reoccur and apologize to those who were unable to tune in yesterday because of the outage. We know how much it sucks to not have access to BAGeL Radio, we get very cranky. We're just glad you guys made it through your Thursday without us -- hopefully that won't happen again.
