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 was pleased to find ProgCore Radio.

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 is when I think Prog Rock was at its peak.

I hope you will join me every Tuesdays at 20:00 to 22:00 EST (Montreal time) «
