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.
