Happy post-Christmas Saturday. Instead of going to the mall to return that ugly sweater, just embrace it and hang out with us here at BTR. It's part two of three of my chronological 2013 countdown! We're starting in April and going through the end of the summer in this section, so stayed tuned for all your favorite indie summer bangers!! And don't forget to follow BTR on Facebook, Twitter, tumblr, Pinterest, and Instagram.
It's the first Saturday in November, and the great albums of 2013 keep pouring in. Most obviously, we've got a track from Arcade Fire's excellent Reflektor. But we've also got Nobunny's new Secret Songs, plus the beautiful Anna Calvi's One Breath. Plus, a whole slew of other new songs to keep your Saturday interesting. And as always, follow BTR on Facebook and Twitter, but also tumblr and Pinterest to get all of the latest updates on the station!
DJ Wynn bids a fond farewell to sleep as CMJ takes over New York. Feast on bands such as Grandchildren, North Highlands, Quilt, Ava Luna, Shigeto, and Heliotropes.
It's Assistant Week on BTR! Madalyn shares one of her worst assistant horror stories, and then spends the rest of the show playing some seriously upbeat pop rock to make up for the horrors. Plus, we've got brand new music from Philadelphia's own Man Man on the show, always an exciting event! And don't forget to check out BTR on Facebook and Twitter!
There are some exceptional new albums on the show today! We've got new tracks from Volcano Choir, Grooms, and my favorite artist that I love to hate, Neko Case. Plus, we've got some recent favorites from bands like The Mallard and Purling Hiss. And as always, check out BTR's Facebook and Twitter to stay up to date on the latest and greatest going on at the station.
Today is the Saturday of Awesome Old Bands Coming Out with New Material. I mean, we're talking old bands. Bands you might have forgotten about even. Remember Franz Ferdinand? The band, not the archduke. Well, guess what? There's a brand new song from them on the show today!! And they're not all! We've got Appomattox, Deer Tick, and The Dodos! Very exciting. And as always, don't forget to stop by Facebook and Twitter and follow BTR for all the latest happenings at the station.

Did you know that it's Planet Beet's 300th episode this week?!?! That's a huge landmark! I think this particular show is somewhere around 260, but it won't be too long before we hit that landmark, too! In August we'll have some exciting things coming up for our 5th Anniversary on BTR, but today we've got some great new tunes, which is just as exciting! And don't forget to check out BTR on Facebook and Twitter.
