480 Minutes - DJ MacGyver


So we replaced the failing ancient Mac Mini with a new Mac Mini for the broadcasts and were so very excited. Sadly we have run into issue after issue with the new operating system, and with iCloud, and with general system weirdness, so today we'll be broadcasting from a laptop never before used for this purpose. Basically the broadcast is being held together with duct tape and zip ties until we can figure out what's up with the new computer. Wish us luck.

Today's BAGeL Radio debuts will include no new music because this is that time of year where we take a couple of weeks off from reviewing submissions and instead cleanse the palate with a diet of Beatles-only listening. Still, there's been so much good stuff added to rotation of late, I don't think that will be an issue.

The show is live-hosted from 9 a.m. until 5 p.m. Eastern U.S. Time and is followed by 2 hours of uninterrupted music.  The show is then rebroadcast in it's entirety beginning at 7 p.m., then again on Saturday at 5 a.m. and 3 p.m., and one final time on Sunday at 1 a.m., followed by a rebroadcast of this week's Fuzzy Road radio show at 11 a.m. and then a couple of old 480 Minutes episodes from this week in past years, so there will be hosted shows all weekend long.

Tune in! (somafm.com/bagel or, if you have an Alexa, the command  "Alexa, play SomaFM BAGeL Radio" works like a charm).
