"480 Minutes" - Win Gig Tickets! Oh, and new Afghan Whigs

Hello and welcome to an addition of 480 Minutes that will blow out of the water every other edition of 480  Why, you ask?  Because we will be employing a new audio input interface, and I have been assured that this new device will make my on-air voice sexier than ever.  Like Barry White sexy.  Make sure there's a pillow nearby oån which to land when you faint.  You have been warned.

In other news, we have tickets to give away for this Thursday's BAGeL Radio Presents... gig featuring live performances by King TuffJaillThe Coathangers at Bottom of the Hill (buy tickets).  Please come out and support these 3 excellent touring bands (from LA, Milwaukee, and Atlanta, respectively).    It's an all-ages show, so have your big sibling or cool parent escort you!  Stay tuned and when you hear a song by any of the featured artists, get in touch and you might just win yourself a pair of tickets to the show.  I'll be there playing the songs between bands, so please stop by the sound/DJ booth and say hi.

Today on 480 Minutes we will debut new songs by The Afghan Whigs (Cincinnati, OH), AM (London, England), Birdmonster (San Francisco, CA), Chapel Club (London, England), DIIV (New York, NY), Eternal Summers (Roanoke, VA), A Great Big Pile Of Leaves (Brookyln, NY), Lawrence Arabia (Auckland, New Zealand), Micachu and The Shapes (Surrey, England), New God (Maryland), Opossom (Auckland, New Zealand), Royal Headache (Sydney, Australia), Samara Lubelski (Portland, OR), Shadowbox (Brooklyn, NY), The Very Best (London and Malawi),  Westkust (Gothenburg, Sweden), and Wet Hair (Cardiff, Wales, England).

In honor of the four (!) bands from the lands down under who will be making their BAGeL Radio debuts today, a helpful chart for understanding their accents:

The 480 Minutes program is live-hosted and your feedback between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m. Pacific Time (time zone adjuster) is greatly appreciated:
