Dear friends of Bear Family Radio!


Bear Family Records will shut down Bear Family Radio on June 1, 2016. The company wants to explore new realms of promotion and public appearance henceforth. Bear Family has started to link titles of their catalogue to a sound file database.

Short examples of songs can be clicked on and listened to. The platform will be constantly updated. We would like to thank all of you music lovers out there for your loyalty, input and support through the years!

Bear Family hopes to welcome you back on their site or in person at the upcoming party in August. We would also like to thank our DJs once again for sharing their talent, time and inspiration: thank you Celia Villagran, Liza Verschoor, The Neon Hillbilly, Stefan Heinrich, Manfred Prescher, and Texas Ted Branson!

You guys rock! See you out there... Bear Family Records
