WTAF!? Freedom FM got an FM licence!!!

As most of you will know already, Freedom FM started as a pirate radio station back in the day (1995) and was operating outside of the law until we were closed down on that fateful day (Tuesday 20th May 2003) known as black Tuesday.

Grammy Awards 2021. The Ultimate night in

Its obvious that when I haven't left the house for the best part of a year, that its hard to contain myself when it comes to the Grammy awards. Honestly, I'm generally not a huge fan of award ceremonies but this has me all jittery! An artist that i have become a major fanboy of is Jhené Aiko. Jhené falls in the category of a strong (and i hate to […]
