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!
“Way better than I thought it would be!” That’s Jim Frey’s thought on his first year back at WALL Radio. Jim spent 12 years at WALL in the 1970’s and 80’s, then worked elsewhere in Radio, eventually creating a second career as a Consultant with MetLife before retiring. That was at just the right time, because Neversink Media had just announced they had purchased WALL and planned to return it to the community-oriented radio station for which it was famous.
Jim saw the announcement on Facebook and “liked” it. Seeing that, Bud Williamson sent a reply asking if Jim would be interested in returning home. “Hmm, I want a retirement job, maybe this could work,” thought Jim, and so a deal was struck and Freydays were coming back.
Move the calendar to today, and every weekday from 3 to 7 is Freyday, and nobody’s happier about it than the host. “I had some fear at first because I had been away from Radio for more than 20 years. I forgot that once I got started, I couldn’t allow myself to toy with a radio show; I AM that show, so I’m fully into what I’m doing. And I’m having more fun than any “retirement job” usually entails. It’s very gratifying to meet somebody and hear that I made them laugh or told a story that they liked. ”
Jim lives in Chester with his wife, Rita, a Vice President with Inspire in Goshen, their son Andy, who is a service advisor at Healey Mitsubishi, a dog, a cat and a turtle.
