GRAMMY nominated singer/songwriter and Saddest Factory Records label CEO, Phoebe Bridgers and SiriusXM announced the launch of ‘Saddest Factory Radio with Phoebe Bridgers,’ a monthly show available on SiriusXMU (ch. 35). The show premieres Thursday, March 3 at 6 p.m. ET.
Saddest Factory Radio will fall in line with the label’s aesthetics and promises “outside-of-the-box thinking and audio trust falls.” Host Phoebe Bridgers will guide listeners through artist-to-artist conversations and, of course, play her favorite songs. The show will also showcase Saddest Factory Records artists such as MUNA, Claud and more.
“In my personal life, I have always had a radio show,” says Bridgers. “Punishing my friends on road trips with hours of dirges and ambient music, I can’t wait to do it professionally.”
Bridgers started Saddest Factory Records in October 2020 following the release of her critically acclaimed sophomore album Punisher. Since then Saddest Factory Records, a play on the word “satisfactory,” has championed a community of emerging talent.
Bridgers, herself, has garnered four GRAMMY® nominations for “Best New Artist”, “Best Alternative Album,” and “Best Rock Song” and “Best Rock Performance” for her single “Kyoto.” Punisher also earned Bridgers her first Billboard #1 on the Emerging Artist Chart.
Saddest Factory Radio will air the first Thursday of each month at 6 p.m. ET and PT with additional encores on the following Friday at 10 a.m. ET, Saturday at 3 p.m. ET, Sunday at 6 p.m. ET, and Tuesday at 12 a.m. ET.
