"480 Minutes" - Pre-CMJ Edition

Want to learn about your BAGeL Radio listening options?  Visit our updated-today-for-the-first-time-this-decade listen page.

Today we are live an in person, as we are almost every Friday for the longest-running live hosted music show in the history of internet radio, 480 Minutes.  Next week (10/21) will be a re-run because I will be in NYC for the 2011 CMJ New Music Marathon.   If you are going to be in NY next week you should swing by the SomaFM meet-up at The Abbey Bar in Brooklyn on Thursday 10/20 from 6pm to 8pm.  It's my friend Tim's favorite bar in NY, so it's gotta be good.

All that is to say, get in touch this week during the show or for two weeks hold your breath!  Let us know what you think of the music and the host and the commentary and Occupy Wall Street and sliders and iOS 5 and The Blue Angels and pomegranates:

Lyric Of The Week: "Do I have to be magical?/Can't we date a few months then move on, normal and casual? /Suicidally alone and then totally smothered/ It's so much pressure when you go from one extreme to the other." - Jeffrey Lewis, "Cult Boyfriend"
