John Freeman

I wanted to be a DJ from the age of 17, with an ambition to work for the
famous UK pirate station Radio Caroline. However, I ended up sticking
to a boring safe career and accepting being a part time DJ on hospital,
university and land-based pirate radio stations during the period 1976 to
1984.  I also ran a successful mobile disco.
After a long break of 37-years I returned to radio during the Covid
Pandemic and worked for Radio Seagull for 16 months and then Epic
Radio for a year.  When the latter closed down on the 8th October, I
started looking for a new home for my “Freeman’s Choice” radio
programme and found this great radio station.
I switched from liking Glam to Prog Rock in 1973 when a girl at school
leant me her LP “Selling England by the Pound” by Genesis. I have
never looked back since, although I do like and play other genres of
album music like Blues, Folk, Country Rock, Acoustic, Reggae, Indie,
but definitely no Rap! My favourite decade is the 1970’s, which listeners
will soon become aware of
