George & Nihal

GFREEDOM TEAM / PROG n ROLL

  GFreedom Team consists of 2 people; George and Nihal, both located in Athens, Greece. George was a DJ in various Rock Clubs and Rock bars for almost 15 years and he is an experienced DJ and a record/music collector. Nihal dealt with Rock music since her teenage years, and she is more open-minded than George when it comes to music.

In our own words…

More than 10 years ago, we started the online radio show Prog n Roll, mostly for fun and because we wanted to experience something new. During those 10 years, the show has evolved and it has gained a very dedicated audience from many countries around the globe. Also, we experienced the honor and the pleasure of having great many musicians as our “guests” while presenting a rather long list of albums. Some of them loved the show so much that they joined our audience as regular listeners, and more often than not, grown to be our friends.

After 10 comfortable years at the same radio station we felt that we needed to step out of our comfort zone; for a new challenge if you like, and we have found our way to www.progrock.com. We believe that our listeners will follow us here and merge harmoniously with the existing audience on ProgRock.com.

We hope that we will offer something new to ProgRock.com while putting in our best effort in entertaining you.

Always on the hunt for new music. An attendee at multiple Rock In Opposition, Nearfest, Big Ears & ProgDay festivals. The plan for the show is to explore those areas outside the normal definitions of prog but of interest to fans of the genre.

Hello listeners! I grew up in the 80’s and 90’s on a strict diet of radio-friendly Pop, Rock, and R&B and then one day I learned Peter Gabriel was in Genesis, and my listening life changed forever. I grew to love progressive music and the community of fans that supported it. One thing I realized very early on in my music exploration was that all my favorite bits didn’t have any singing: I prefer when the music speaks for itself, whether that was prog or funk or metal. I went looking tor a radio show or podcast that featured the instrumental music liked, couldn’t find one, and so the good folks at progrock.com said I could have a go.

Before No Words Music, I was a co-host on the podcast Tabletop Genesis for 5 years. I am a Jersey Girl that lives in Philly, working in global healthcare analytics by day and dreaming of another Phillies World Series win in my lifetime by night.

“Purveyor of the Best of Prog, with a passionate enthusiasm (leaning towards the obsessive) from around the world”

Never afraid to dig into the archives and scour the world for Progressive Rock. Richard spends a big part of his retired life planning and producing his radio show ProgPhonic simply for the Love of Prog. He found Prog as a young teen listening to late night FM radio growing up in NYC. He is married to his long-time wife Deb who is also a progger attending numerous concerts and festivals. Richard grew up in the 70’s and has a love of classic prog and new prog from emerging artists.

Richard also dabbles with concert photography, fishing and believes it’s always a good time to learn something new. Richard and Deb happily split their time between Chicago and Destin, FL with their two small dogs Phoebe and Zooey. He has two married children and one grandchild. Oh and yes, he did manage to squeeze in a prog song for the father-daughter dance at his daughter’s wedding.

Chuck Simons

Chuck Simons

Chuck Simons grew up in the 70s with mostly classic rock and the big 4, YES, Genesis, Pink Floyd, and Rush. I had no idea of all the other Prog music going on at the time. Got married in the 80s and focused on family at the same time prog rock was going through a transition. With kids leaving the house I rediscovered Prog Rock in 2014 to realize how much I had missed out on. The object of my show is to take you on my journey year by year in prog rock history, not only for you, the listener but for my own learning and gratification of all those years I missed! This is why I call the show Prog Rock for Beginners, beginner being myself, and hopefully a lot of other beginners and veterans who just love this mainstream prog rock most of the time! Prog Rock for Beginners. The Best of Prog Rock, Year by Year!
