"480 Minutes" - New Handsome Furs

Hello friends, listeners, listeners who have become friends, and friends who have become listeners.   Next Friday will feature a re-run of a previously recorded 480 Minutes program.  Looking back, this will be just the second re-run of 2011.  This tells me: I need a life.

That said, this week it's an all-new 480 Minutes program during which we debut all of the new songs to be added to regular rotation next week.  Tune in for free by clicking that shiny new giant silver Play button on the right.  Or click here.  During the live show hours (Fridays, 9a.m. - 5p.m. Pacific Time) please get in touch with requests, comments, complaints, informative tidbits, political rants, hygiene tips, grilling recipes, favorite bourbons, whathaveyou:

and you can also post stuff to the Facebook Group wall (type BAGeL Radio in the FB search window), which they are apparently going to disable soon because it doesn't have enough activity.  Bastards. Err, I mean, c'est la vie.

Today's new playlist additions include music from Bon Iver (Eau Claire, WI), Handsome Furs (Montreal, Canada), The Japanese Popstars (Derry, Northern Ireland), Unknown Mortal Orchestra (Portland, OR via New Zealand), When Saints Go Machine (Copenhagen, Denmark), and the difficult to-Google band from Pittsburgh, PA called 1, 2, 3.
