Hi, my name is Jim Free (yes, that’s my real name) and I’m the host of Freezone In The Morning on 99.1 The Whale. I was born and raised just across the PA border in a town called Carbondale. I’m the youngest of 7 kids. My parents wanted 8 but after I was born, they knew they couldn’t do any better. Kidding…kind of. I started in Binghamton radio over 25 years ago and now, I’m back in the morning on 99.1 The Whale, playing the best classic rock from 5am till 10am. I live in Endicott with my wife, Chris who I married on 07/07/07. I have a stepson Ian, who is an awesome kid. I like to golf, sleep, play and watch sports, and hang out with family and friends. I look forward to hanging out with you every weekday morning.
I Don’t Think I Want Vegas to Win
I always root for the underdog. Right now, I would like to see Washington win the cup because they have never done it. I don't think Vegas should win. Or do I?

Who Did She Take to the Prom?
If you could go back to high school and take anyone to the prom, who would it be? Wait until you she who, or maybe I should say what a girl from PA went with.
My Wife’s Mother’s Day
Sunday was Mother's Day! Ian and I tried to execute a well planned day of activities that Chris would like. It didn't quite go as planned.
