Bread is 106.1 The Sound

The early version of this California mellow rock band was initially called Pleasure Faire.  When the last members joined the group in the early 70’s, it was really David Gate’s band as he wrote and sang all their chart topping hits.  Most of their songs were heartbreak ballads with the exception of the upbeat Mother Freedom.  They found their name while walking to a studio when a bread truck drove by.  David Gates went on to have a huge solo career with hits like Goodbye Girl while the others formed a group with the satirical title Toast.  A 1996 reunion quickly fizzled out and Gates is now their only surviving member.
