"480 Minutes" - BAGeL Radio Top Music of 2013

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

Tune in today to hear the top 200 BAGeL Radio songs of 2013 -- today's playlist will be all 2013 music all day.  The BAGeL Radio Top Songs of 2013 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 show will be entertaining.  This show will provide you with dozens of holiday gift ideas for the music lovers on your list.  This show will convince you that BAGeL Radio needs to be your main source for new music in 2014.

If you Rip Van Winkled 2013 musically, this is it -- your chance to catch up in one day!

The show runs from 9 a.m. until 5 p.m. Eastern Time, and today, while feedback is always welcome, we will not be taking requests.  After all, these our our top songs of the year.  Please share yours in the comments area.

Text lists of the top 100 songs and top 100 albums will be published to and to our Facebook page tomorrow (Saturday, December 21st), which also happens to be the first day of winter here in our hemisphere.  Meanwhile on Sunday, the first full day of winter, it's supposed to be in the mid-60s F -- climate change?  What climate change?

The countdown will reach #1 at approximately 1:15 p.m. Eastern Time, and this year the "unmanned" portion of the show (post-5 p.m.) will stretch to four hours instead of usual two to accommodate even more of the great songs released in 2013.  Yes, this will be a 12-hour show.  All 2013 music.

The program will be rebroadcast tonight starting around 9:00p.m. Eastern Time, and twice on Saturday 12/21 -- check back here, on Facebook, or on our Twitter feed (@bagelradio) for the exact times.

The process of reviewing, weighting, playlisting, re-weighting, starting all over again, and then finally just pulling songs randomly out of a hat (not really, California, that's sarcasm!), sharing the best music of the year with you is the most fun we have all year.  You'll see!

Also, we're pleased to announce that the 11th BAGeL Radio Birthday Bash is a go!!   It will be held on Friday, 1/31/14 @ Bottom of the Hill in San Francisco.  Please RSVP on the Facebook event page, at do415, and most importantly buy tickets here!  They're only $10!
