  • RADIO BRAIN DRAIN 2018

    Posted by Carley on August 9, 2018

    RADIO BRAIN DRAIN is a week-long music party taking place over CJAMs airwaves. Originally beginning as the “40th Anniversary of Punk” – CJAMs Radio Brain Drain celebrates the first time The Ramones played as a 4 piece band at CBGB’s on August 16 1974.  And while this is by no means exactly when punk began, we thought it was as good a time as any to honor the loud – the weird – and the NOISE. 

    RADIO BRAIN DRAIN runs Sunday August 12th – Saturday August 18th

  • Get to know… Border City Roots!

    Posted by Carley on August 7, 2018

    CJAM wants you to get to know our DJs!
    Check out our “Meet a Jammer” series!

    BCR LOGO THURSDAY

    Name // Allison Brown
    Show // Border City Roots
    When // Thursdays 10:30am – 12pm

    // How long have you been involved with CJAM & campus-community radio?
    I’ve been with CJAM since 2011-ish & with community radio since 2003!

    // How did you become involved as a CJAMmer?
    I started by filling in for Chris Crossroads on his show “Deliverance”

    // Describe your show…
    Every week I play the music I’m most excited about at the time. Sometimes it’s piles of new stuff from mainly Canadian folk, roots music & songwriters. Sometimes it’s old American bluegrass and even an occasional sprinkling of old jazz and R&B. I try to expand the concept of what roots and folk music can be. I always love to add theme shows, special live guests, artist features and more! I also provide lots of info about local concerts and festivals.

    // What is your favourite topic of discussion?
    This is tough. Touring life and songwriting are always of interest. I’d say road stories are at the top of the list.

    // My other life consists of…
    being a touring musician, dog-sitting, writing articles for The Harrow News, managing a volunteer choir, freelance promotional and other help for fellow musicians, biking on the greenway…!

    // What was your best live music experience?
    Another tough one! I hear or play live music myself pretty much every week & make it a huge part of my life. I’ve seen so many mind-blowing shows: John Prine & Mavis Staples at Massey Hall comes to mind, but something super special about what was supposed to be the “final” Rheostatics concert in 2007 at Massey – that was pretty special.

    // Who do you NEED to see live?
    I think if I heard Alison Kraus live I’d probably implode. I’ve actually never seen Gillian Welch and David Rawlings in person either so that would also be one to see for me. If I had a time machine I’d for sure go back to see The Band and Dinah Washington in person too.

    // Anything else you’d like to add?
    I love the easy feel of CJAM and how I have a pretty blank page for my creativity with my programming. The hosts are all super friendly, everyone at the station has a wealth of music knowledge and they know how to pick great stuff.
