Phoebe Bridgers shares music & more on new SiriusXM show ‘Saddest Factory Radio’
If you don’t know Phoebe Bridgers from her GRAMMY®-nominated album Punisher (or, perhaps, from inviting David Crosby’s Twitter ire by smashing a guitar on Saturday Night Live), prepare to get a crash course in the singer-songwriter and Saddest Factory Records label CEO’s essence of no-holds-barred vulnerability and beyond during an all-new monthly show. Starting on Thursday, March 3rd at 6 pm and 9 pm ET, SiriusXM and Bridgers are coming together for Saddest Factory Radio with Phoebe Bridgers, available on SiriusXMU (Ch. 35).
Saddest Factory Radio will fall in line with the label’s aesthetics and promises “outside-of-the-box thinking and audio trust falls.” As host, Bridgers will guide listeners through artist-to-artist conversations and, of course, play her favourite songs. The show will also showcase Saddest Factory Records artists such as MUNA, Claud and more. In the debut episode, hear Bridgers share song recommendations for fans’ questions — from soundtracking a stolen toothbrush with underscores’ “Everybody’s Dead!” to a drive through the Italian countryside set to “Dead End Street” by Blake Mills.
“In my personal life, I have always had a radio show; punishing my friends on road trips with hours of dirges and ambient music, I can’t wait to do it professionally,” Bridgers said.
Bridgers started Saddest Factory Records in October 2020 following the release of her critically acclaimed sophomore album Punisher. Since then Saddest Factory, a play on the word “satisfactory,” has championed a community of emerging talent. Bridgers has also garnered four GRAMMY® nominations for Best New Artist and Best Alternative Album, plus Best Rock Song and Best Rock Performance for her single “Kyoto.” Punisher also earned Bridgers her first Billboard No. 1 on the Emerging Artist Chart.
Saddest Factory Radio will air the first Thursday of each month at 6 pm ET with additional encores on the following Friday at 10 am ET, Saturday at 3 pm ET, Sunday at 6 pm ET and Tuesday at 12 am ET.
