In October, Ocean announced that he was starting a new weekly radio show on Apple Music 1, Homer Radio.
Airing each week on Thursdays at 10:PM (ET), the show is a glimpse into the music played “after-hours” at the office for his Homer brand. Since its first broadcasts, guests have included rRoxymore, Crystallmess, livwutang and Nick León.
In a description for the show, Ocean wrote: “Twin towering line array speakers hold court. Someone’s vacuuming the carpets adding a distant layer of white noise to the sound.
“Media volleys across short distances quickly on the net as Sorkin-like walk and talks travel down the hallways further and further from the sound,” he continued.
“This is Homer Radio. An office soundtrack.”
