Frank Ocean Debuts New Apple Music Radio Show ‘Homer Radio’
Frank Ocean has debuted a brand new Apple Music radio show called Homer Radio.
Named after the singer’s luxury jewelry brand Homer, the broadcast is set to take place every Thursday at 10 p.m. EST. The first episode, guest starring producer CRYSTALLMESS, premiered last night (October 27).
The show is described as “a one-hour window into what plays around our office after hours,” according to Ocean, who turned 35 on Friday (October 28).
“Twin line array speakers hold court, they’re only a little loud,” he wrote in an accompanying message. “Someone’s vacuuming the carpets in another room adding white noise to the song. A security guard coming back up from a cigarette break can hear it all from inside the elevator.
“Magnified eyes see through a headset loaded with grids of light and lenses and loupes. Skulls on swivels make no sudden movements helicoptering over paperwork, pens, blades, vices, metals and gems. Artificial light pours from small canisters like those dragons that spring from cylinders, like the never-ending ribbons pulled from a magicians ear.”
He continued: “Media fires back and forth and back again across the net. Sorkin-like walk and talks travel down the hallways further and further from the sound. This is Homer Radio. An office soundtrack. Can’t you hear our ‘voice’? It’s not a dead line.”

While no new music from Frank Ocean was played during the show, the setlist included songs by Kodak Black, Project Pat, Beenie Man, Big Tymers, GloRilla, Cardi B, AZ, Tony! Toni! Tone!, Aaliyah, Boi-1da and others.
As far as music is concerned, his last album Blonde was released in 2016, but he’s since released a slew of standalone singles such as “Chanel,” “Biking,” “Lens,” “Provider,” “Moon River,” “DHL,” “In My Room,” “Cayendo” and “Dear April.”
The singer sparked excitement for his new album in September after wiping his Instagram page clean, but there have been no updates since. Ocean got the internet talking for other reasons in August when he released a diamond-encrusted 18-karat gold cock ring through his Homer brand, costing $25,570.
