Abstract: Let $ A$ be a Banach algebra with radical $ R$. In 1951 Feldman exhibited an example in which it is impossible to find a closed subalgebra $ K$ of $ A$ such that $ A = K \oplus R$. We provide other examples. Feldman's algebra is commutative, but these examples are, in general, not commutative.
