Monday – Friday 3:00pm to 7:00pm
Jim Frey plays the greatest hits, along with good conversation about current and historical events in Orange County as well as funny stories everybody can relate to!
I once heard someone referred to as a “marvelous raconteur,” and I thought it would be cool to be that, even though I had no idea what a raconteur was! Finding out it had to do with storytelling, I aimed my radio career in that direction. Instead of merely giving song titles and weather and time, I began to incorporate stories into my shows. Often the stories are personal, which allows my audience to get to know me, but I also like to share interesting, bizarre and funny tales that I dig up in my reading. People seem to like what I’m doing, or else they’re lying to make me feel good! When I was talking with Bud Williamson about the possibility of returning to WALL after being away for so long, I asked what he would like me to do, and he said, “Just be Frey,” and I think I’m pretty good at being that. Just being myself and working on a great radio station with so many outstanding quality broadcasters is a truly satisfying experience. And I hope that someday, somebody, somewhere will say,”Jim Frey on WALL Radio is a marvelous raconteur.”
(Jim is in his second stint on WALL. He lives in Chester with his wife Rita, a Vice President at Inspire, The CP Center in Goshen, their son Andy, a Service Advisor with Healey Motors in Goshen, their dog, cat and turtle, Cookie, Frankie and Digger.)
