"480 Minutes" - Goodbye 2012, Hello New Era, Hello Free App Download Codes

...I can dream, can't I?

The BAGeL Radio 10th Birthday Party is only five weeks away and tickets are on sale now, please purchase one or more in advance to alleviate my recurring "What if I throw a party and no one comes?!?" fears.  Thank you for your consideration of my neurosis.

The event will feature Mister LovelessChurches, and Birdmonster at Bottom of the Hill, on Friday, February 1st, 2013.  Doors are at 8:30 and it's an All Ages Show.

Today we will have free download codes for the SomaFM iOS and Android apps Mac desktop apps to award throughout the show.  Tune in and pay attention to the trivia questions throughout the program to have a chance to win a free SomaFM mobile app which, as exuberant listener Corey will attest, "It's bad ass! can't believe i just downloaded it. I AM SO PSYCHED."

Now that all of that business is behind us, welcome to the final 480 Minutes of 2012.  Not a lot of submissions this time of year.   While I love listening to new music and unearthing hidden gems, it's nice to have the break from that cycle.  The break allows me more time for pleasure listening which this week included super high fidelity FLAC file versions of Led Zeppelin (I could listen to Bonzo's drums on "Fool In The Rain" over and over for an hour and not get bored, even by the boring bits!), some Chopin, some irreverent holiday music on the SomaFM holiday channels, and of course, BAGeL Radio!

While it is unlikely that you will hear any Led Zeppelin during 480 Minutes today, and even less likely you will hear holiday music, it is quite possible you will hear a few classic alt rock songs you may have forgotten.

New tunes today by Beach Fossils (Brooklyn, NY), The Hideout (Seattle, WA), and KGB Lawyer (they will not reveal the location of the hideout!).
