Saddest Factory Radio will feature Bridgers in conversation with artists — including label signees Muna, Sloppy Jane, Claud, and more — while she introduces listeners to her favorite songs. “My favorite way to consume music is incidentally — something playing in the grocery store, an opening band I’ve never heard, a college radio station while trying to find signal on a road trip,” Bridgers tells Rolling Stone. “I hope I can offer something like that to people who tune in.”
“In my personal life, I have always had a radio show,” she added. “Punishing my friends on road trips with hours of dirges and ambient music, I can’t wait to do it professionally.”
Saddest Factory Radio will premiere on March 3 at 6 p.m. ET and 9 p.m. ET on SiriusXMU (Channel 35, with encores continuing throughout the weekend. Each episode will arrive the first Thursday of each month.
