"480 Minutes" - New Site! More Tickets!

8 hours of live-hosted indie rock noise pop AND a ticket giveaway AND a new website? Sign me up!

Check it out at It's lame-looking because I have zero design skills but it works and will be a lot better than this here ancient blog. Eventually. You can even stream the station right from the home page. So very high tech, right?

Today is the penultimate new episode of 480 Minutes of 2021. We have more tickets to give away to see Yo Kinky perform at The Mercury Lounge in NYC on 12/15/21 (travel expenses not included, sorry).

You can also buy tickets at

We are still sorting through all of the new songs we aired on the station in 2021 in preparation for the year-end top-music episode of 480 Minutes next Friday, December 17th, 2021. The top 50-song countdown begins at 11am ET and ends/reaches #1 somewhere around 2:30pm. The rest of the show will include another 100 or so of our favorites of 2021. We take into account objective data including how many times songs/albums were played, how many people were listening when they were played (the data is admittedly less accurate than previous years due in part to separating from SomaFM), and finally we top off the data with Subjective Sauce™.

The results of this process are revealed during 480 Minutes next Friday, December 17th, 2021, with the top 50-song countdown beginning at 11am ET and ending somewhere around 2:30pm. The rest of the show will include another 100 or so of our favorites of 2021.

And you'd better believe there will be bingo! If you'd like to play along please download this card, print it out, fill it in with your 24 best guesses for what BAGeL Radio's top songs of the year will be, then get the completed card back to me (scanned or photographed) no later than 11:59pm Eastern U.S. Time on Thursday, December 16th for a chance to win...something. Perhaps a prototype of the new merch we are working on?

A few updates with regard to the transition -- the Android app is now available in the Google Play store with both a Roku & iOS app to follow. Eventually (are you sensing a theme?).

The station is now available on just about every radio aggregator app that I am aware of and some are even displaying BAGeL Radio metadata so there are more ways to listen with track info than there were last week. A standalone playlist history page is also in the works.

All-new BAGeL Radio merch in the pipeline including t-shirts (men's and women's), hoodlies, coffee mugs, hats, g-strings, and more. The first sample coffee mug arrived this week and it looked pretty sweet next to Monday's bagel du jour:
