Freetown Radio is a free form, mixed bag of sounds showcasing music that is often neglected on commercial radio. Co-hosts Chas Justus and Roger Kash expose the intricate and subtle connections linking all genres of music from the dawn of recorded music early in the 20th Century to the so called "modern" sounds of today. Each week Roger and Chas deal with a specific theme and explore connections that transcend the boundaries of genre, exposing classifications as just marketing tools that record companies invent to sell records.
