"480 Minutes" - A Friday The 13th in 2012...Scary!

Well, not actually scary.  Regardless of what TV tells us, the Mayans did not in fact predict that the world would end in 2012 -- 2012 just happened to be when their very forward-thinking calendar ended.  For a cleverly presented explanation of this, check out this video at Grey's Blog.  What's actually scary is how many stupid fucking Americans ignore reason and believe that The End Is Nigh anyway.  Not to mention the Missourians who would be less out of place in the Dark Ages when religion insisted that the world was flat, the sun revolved around the earth, and other such counterproductive drivel.

Now that that's out of the way...

Hello and welcome 480 Minutes, BAGeL Radio's award winning weekly live hosted radio show. Each Friday we highlight the newest playlist additions.  Some of the new releases are dated 2012, and some arrived late in 2011 during our "All Beatles All The Time" annual palette cleanse, hence the delay in getting them on the air. 

This week we will debuting new music by Black Box Revelation (Dilbeek, Belgium), Ceremony (Rohnert Park, CA), Katrin the Thrill (Athens, Greece), Peggy Sue (Brighton, England), San Cisco (Freemantle, Australia), The Shins (Portland, OR), and Sleigh Bells (Brooklyn, NY).

As always the show is hosted live and in-person from 9 a.m. until 5 p.m. Pacific Time.  Please get in touch during those hours with your requests, comments, and favorite kind of microwave popcorn:
