"480 Minutes" - The Best Music of 2012

It is time for the best 480 Minutes of the year!

Tune in today to hear your favorite BAGeL Radio songs of 2012 -- 200 of them, as we play all 2012 music all day.  The BAGeL Radio Top Songs of 2012 will be counted down beginning with song #50 at 10 a.m., and the rest of the show will be fleshed out with 150 other favorite songs of the year.

This annual year-end Best Of edition of 480 Minutes, like those before it, is designed to (a) entertain, (b) give you holiday gift ideas, and (c) entice you to make a New Year's resolution to listen to BAGeL Radio as your main source for new music in 2013.  We're not admitting that there's going to be hypnotic, subliminal tricks employed to that end, but we're not saying there won't be, either.

The hosted portion of the show, as always, runs from 9 a.m. until 5 p.m. Pacific Time, and today, while feedback is always welcome, we will not be taking requests.  After all, these our our top songs of 2012.  Please feel free to make mention of yours in the comments below (or above, where our Best Of lists are published).

We usually reach #1 in the countdown at 1:15 p.m. Pacific Time, and this year the post-5p.m. portion of the show is likely to stretch to 4 hours instead of 2 just because there were so many great songs released in 2012.  Yes, this is likely to be a 12-hour program.  The program will be rebroadcast tonight, likely starting around 9:30p.m. Pacific Time, and twice on Saturday 12/15 -- check back here, or on our Twitter feed (@bagelradio) for the exact times.

Sharing the best music of the year with you is our pleasure and joy -- we hope you enjoy it, too.

BAGeL Radio's 2012 lists will be available at at 5 p.m. Pacifc Time, and will be available as playlists on a music service or three by Monday.

Also, we're pleased to announce that Churches and The Little Ones (from Los Angeles) have joined the bill for the BAGeL Radio 10th Birthday Party @ Bottom of the Hill on Friday 2/1/13.  Hope you can make it!
