Noods Radio find new home at its own cafe/bar, Mickey Zoggs, in Bristol city centre
Bristol’s Noods Radio have found a new home at their own café/bar Mickey Zoggs in the centre of the city.
Opening on 30th April, the move marks a homecoming for Noods as the new location is on the site of the original Noods studio in 2017. Led by Noods Directors Jack Machin & Leon Pattrick, alongside co-founder Francesco Campanile, the station will be one of the first in the UK to combine its studio with a café/bar space, acting as a hub for the Noods Radio Community.
Noods co-founder Leon said, “We’re super excited to finally have a place we can really call home. We’ve been looking for somewhere long term for the last 2 years now and it’s kinda romantic how we’ve ended up back at our old local. Things are gonna be a bit different though, we’ll still have great music but it won’t be a music venue. We’ll be keeping things pretty low key with the station coming first. It’ll be a place for residents to get together and listeners to get that bit closer to the station. We’ll also be using the space for some industry training and talks.”
They will be celebrating the opening of the space with a weekend of programming from friends and residents of the station including, Danielle, Dar Disku, Test Dept, Kahn, O$VMV$M and Glade Marie.
Noods Radio opened in 2016 as a platform for underground music from across the spectrum. Since their beginnings they’ve maintained an independent and advertisement free station, which houses shows from more than 300 residents. Alongside a family of residents built over the last five years, they’ve welcomed artists from all over the world to the station including Mike Dunn, Lena Willikens, Laurel Halo, Laraaji, Shanti Celeste and Sherelle.
