"480 Minutes" - New Horrors

I know that many people look forward to Fridays.  For most employed folks it marks the end of the work week.  Hell, there's a restaurant chain thanking the Flying Spaghetti Monster for the day's mere existence.  I look forward to Fridays as much as the next person, perhaps even moreso because it is my opportunity to host 480 Minutes and present to you selections from all of the great new music that has passed through our mailbox lately.  It is a pleasure and an honor and I thank you for tuning in (if you didn't they might take me off to some padded room somewhere for preaching my weekly sermons to an empty room. Yes, they of the Them Clan).

Today we have an all-new 480 Minutes live hosted radio program (Friday, 9a.m. - 5p.m. Pacific Time) for you, as usual hosted live, in-person, in real-time from San Francisco, California.  Please tune in (it's free!) 24/7/365 by clicking that shiny giant silver Play button on the right.  Or click here.  

During the live show hours (Fridays, 9a.m. - 5p.m. Pacific Time) you can (and should!) get in touch in real-time:
e-mail: bagelradio[at]gmail[dot]com
Yahoo IM/GoogleTalk: bagelradio
AOL/iChat: bagelradiolive

or via our Facebook page.

We may also offer a video stream of the studio today if we can figure out how to override the built-in video camera in the MacBook Pro...anyone know how to do that?

Today's new playlist additions include music by Army Navy (Los Angeles, CA), Boston Spaceships (Dayton, OH), The Horrors (London, England), Letting Up Despite Great Faults (Los Angeles, CA), Little Gold (Brooklyn, NY), Mister Heavenly (why, Heaven, of course), Neon Indian (Denton, TX), Prophets & Kings (Chattanooga, TN), Robbers On High Street (Brooklyn, NY), and You Me and Us (Bermuda Dunes, CA).

If you want to see the album art and song titles on your phone, try the TuneIn Radio app.
