The Whitlams’ Tim Freedman back in familiar territory for 1001st gig

The Whitlams frontman and keyboard player Tim Freedman is hitting the road again with his ‘Man About A Dog’ tour.

Joining Jim Wilson in the studio, Tim shared his familial familiarity with 2GB building.

His father Barry Freedman co-hosted the station’s Top 60 in the late 1960s, and later became a newsreader in the 80s.

“He used to finish his shift at 10 o’clock and I’d wait for him outside.”

The Whitlams are now in their 29th year as a band.

“Seems like about 80 to me, Jim – 1000 gigs.

“Just in the last seven months I’ve been round the country three times, but gee I just love what I do.”

Tim treated Drive listeners to a studio performance of two of The Whitlams’ best-loved singles, Thank You (For Loving Me At My Worst) and the poignant Blow Up the Pokies.
