Frank J. Freda was born on January 28, 1971 in Mineola, NY. Over the years, Frank’s love of music deepened and his tastes expanded to many different genres. In the early 80s it was mostly top 40 from 95.5 WPLJ and Z-100. MTV also played a large role in introducing him to many new artists that would influence him forever. Bands like Depeche Mode, Duran Duran, Peter Gabriel, The Cure and Tears For Fears were in rotation on television and radio, but their full impact wouldn’t be realized until years later.
