"480 Minutes" - Untogether

Last week I described the in-process spinning-off of BAGeL Radio from SomaFM as a band member going solo. In retrospect I think a more apt analogy might be the situation that arises when good friends decide to divorce. Sometimes people grow apart. Sometimes one would be better off without the other. That doesn't mean they don't still love each other, but drastic changes are required nonetheless. You may have been friends with one first, but over the years you came to love them both, making the split both confusing and difficult. This one doesn't need to be -- both sides still are friends with each other and with you! So, on 1/1/22 you will not find BAGeL Radio in the SomaFM mobile app, desktop app, nor on the website. You will always be able to find BAGeL Radio via, however, and we will work with you to make sure you can stream through your preferred device.

If you have not yet done so please sign up for our mailing list to keep on top od all things BAGeL including ways you can help once we are flying solo:

Lately you may have noticed weirdness with the metadata at times. It is likely a result of our experimenting with streaming options. I'm afraid that there's not much I can do about it and expect there to be further such issues as the end of the year approaches. Apologies for any inconvenience.

Sadly either the label, the promo company, or some combination thereof decided to not send us a review copy of the new Parquet Courts album as of the time of this writing/show prep. As the old saying goes, "Oh well."'s your week going?

Today we will debut a bevy of new music including songs by Black Marble (Brooklyn, NY, @blackmarblenyc), Bodega (New York, NY, @enterbodega), Dean Wareham (Los Angeles, CA, @WarehamDean), Dinner (Copenhagen, Denmark, @DinnerXDinner), Furrows (Brooklyn, NY, @FurrowsBand), Gone To Color (Undisclosed U.S. location, @GoneToColor), Liily (Los Angeles, CA, @LiilyTheBand), Sprints (Dublin, Ireland, @SprintsMusic), and Surfbort (Brooklyn, NY, @SurfBortion). 

Tune in and chat with other members of our music discovery-loving community on Slack during the live-hosted hours.
