"480 Minues" - New Drums

Today is the "your host didn't get enough sleep last night" edition of 480 Minutes.  He spent way too much of his week doing things other than listening to the 700+ songs submitted and thus stayed up way too late playing catch-up last night.  Please, go easy on him.

Today's show will feature new songs from Blasted Canyons (San Francisco, CA), Chris Letcher (London, England), The Drums (New York, NY), The Front Bottoms (Westwood, NJ), Louise Burns (Vancouver, Canada), PS I Love You (Kingston, Canada), and Toddla T (Sheffield, England).  Included amongst those songs will be the first Rush cover ever played on the station.  This may be the one and only time this cover is played on the station, so be cool or be cast out.

During live show hours (Fridays, 9a.m. - 5p.m. Pacific Time) please get in touch in real-time:

AOL/iChat: bagelradiolive

or via our new Facebook page.

And again...please be easy on your host.  It's going to be a rough day regardless!  Thanks.

Life hint of the day: if you broke up once, you broke up for a reason, a reason that will resurface to break you up again.  Resist the temptation!
