WZBC Newton/Boston 90.3 FM
(as Live Performer)
I went for
a walk on the intertubes and learned more about the Dandy Man. I
read about Christopher Lydon and I found out that the WZBC program
"Cafe of Shame" has mocked me yet again.

As a gadfly in the ointment of mediocrity, Freeman questioned
WMBR's very questionable practice of selling air time. The host admits
the station's quid pro quo (air for money) policy twice before denying

(as Program Host)
Freeman produced this childrens' program for
three years. ...Played lots of Bill
you should too!
Quality Time 1990
(as Executive Producer)
Freeman: "I produced this talk program for several
years. It featured the participation of Brandeis students and local
school-age boys and girls on both sides of the transmitter. We exposed Fat
Jack Burns' abuse of students in the Waltham schools, and I'd
often get an escort to the Waltham border courtesy of the Brandeis
Police. Maybe that was because of the threats on my life by a sleazy
campus Republican or maybe it was something else entirely."
What's Left 1990
This was a creative and truly anarchic multi-studio
ray dee oh extravaganza.
All Genre All Night 1990
Anything goes. Live calls and interviews, any style of music, triple-turntable vinyl orgies, open reel tricks, cart machines on acid. And sometimes I just played music.

L. N. was one of the first DJs to mix early Freeman Z field recordings
from the front lines of dissent into FM music programming. Meanwhile,
Neita Michael was airing FZ's actualities on home-burned CDs over
at WZBC. Michael played roots rock rasta reggae, the bible and
Annoyed with wers, my connection L. N. did a neat
late night Sand
swan-song show. Traditionally this happens when a bitter DJ spites
the boss by poisoning, or even cleansing, the air. He dedicated the
suicide show to the guys at the Billerica House of Corrections and
to yours truly, his humble field recordist from the outside world.
He proceeded to rail against station's bad attitude and 'banal' programming,
then, pointing out that "banal
rhymes with anal ...which is where this station belongs...up my ass!
...WERS and Emerson 'U' ...Get over yourself!"
