Radio FreakJam was born out of necessity. In the dark, desperate times of the Great Corona of 2020, the people of the world we’re hiding in their living rooms, social distancing and self isolating, hoarding toilet roll and hand sanitiser and getting bored of all the same old programs on Netflix and Amazon. Gig’s were cancelled across the globe and it seemed that live music would die a slow, silent death in the trenches of the Viral War. But some brave folks took to the internet in an attempt to instill some morale in the troops and bring them their weekly dose of tunes. You could almost hear a grinding of the gears as the world wide web struggled to take the strain of home schooled children fighting for bandwidth with bored musicians and people “working from home” and we all wondered if it could be the end…

But obviously it’s not!

The FreakJam Band have been organising live jam nights for over 20 years and for the past few years it has found its home at Mr Bumble in Camberley. The Freakjam runs regularly every Thursday from 9pm and musicians join the house band, bring their own bands or play solo for 3 or 4 songs before moving on to the next act. Not only is it a night of talented musicians and good music, but it is a community where bands, friendships, and relationships have developed! With the sad news of all gigs being cancelled and pubs closing, people asked “What are we going to do on a Thursday now?”    

The Freakjam is frequented by a lot of creative people, people who knew they would get very bored in the coming months, people who retreated to their studios and debated that very question…

And Radio Freakjam was birthed from outdated computers, old software, lots of advice, plenty of swearing, some testing and determination, and it rose from the slab like a Frankensteins Monster of internet broadcasting, unrecognisable to most DJs and VJs. But it kinda worked… 

Radio FreakJam is an attempt to bring a jam night online and into your living rooms. We remotely connect to musicians across the country and sometimes even across continents, then we broadcast their music and video out to YouTube for the world to watch. The Jam Night runs every Thursday from 8pm onwards and includes guest hosts, music talk, fun, possibly some drinking and most importantly live music! You can catch the show by clicking the show link posted on all of our social media a short time before the show starts!
