8PM – 10PM: REVROCK PRESENTS JOE STRUMMER & THE LATINO ROCKABILLY WAR
Following his time with The Clash, Joe Strummer worked on a variety of soundtracks, most notably for the Alex Cox films, Sid & Nancy and Walker. The Latino Rockabilly War was the backing band Strummer put together for music on the film Permanent Record, which starred Keanu Reeves. The band consisted of Zander Schloss (guitar), Lonnie Marshall (bass), Jack Irons (drums) as well as Willie McNeil on drums for select tracks. Five songs recorded during this time were featured on the Permanent Record soundtrack, Trash City, Baby the Trans, Nothin’ Bout Nothin‘, Nefertiti Rock, and the instrumental track Theme from Permanent Record.

This line-up was also featured on the Earthquake Weather, Joe Strummer’s first official solo album. Released in 1989, the album was initially not received well critically, but that has come to change with time, garnering more of a cult following. Earthquake Weather experiments with the influences of rockabilly, folk, funk, reggae, world music, and pop music. Many feel this album is an early incarnation of the sound the Joe Strummer & The Mescaleros would bring forth a decade later. The Latino Rockabilly War also toured with Strummer as his backing band for his Rock Against the Rich tour in 1988/1989. This episode will feature music from Earthquake Weather, songs from the Permanent Record soundtrack, some live recordings, and B-sides from this period.

10PM – 11PM: JOE STRUMMER &THE LATINO ROCKABILLY WAR LIVE
CJAM FM presents a rare live performance by Joe Strummer &the Latino Rockabilly War. Recorded on June 23, 1988 at The Fridge in Brixton. This will be presented uninterrupted, as if you were there yourself to hear the live show. A perfect compliment to the Revolution Rock special preceding it.

11PM – MIDNIGHT: JOE STRUMMER DAY CLOSER
Station Manager Brady and Program Director Carley return to close out the 24-hour marathon to feature nothing but Clash B-Sides from their single releases over the years.

A Perfect Circle at The Fox Theatre

_APC1703

Known largely for their hardball stance on cell phone use, A Perfect Circle’s 2017 tour recently made it’s way through Detroit, and we sent our in-house photographer, Lauren Hedges, to capture some photos for you to peek at (since you won’t have all those awesome blurry Snapchats to look back on).

During the show frontman Maynard James Keenan announced a new album from APC, as well as a promise to return to Detroit in the near future. Earlier this week the band was announced as part of 2018’s Rock on The Range in Columbus, Ohio. They’ll be playing alongside MJK’s side project Tool, Ice-T’s Body Count, Andrew W.K., and more. 2018 is shaping up to be another great year for live concerts.

Check out more photos from the show on the CJAM Facebook Page.

CJAM FM TECH UPGRADE PLEDGE DRIVE FUNDRAISER (OCT 20 -OCT 27)

image1 (2)

CJAM 99.1 FM is excited to announce the dates for their annual Pledge Drive Fundraiser. The drive will begin on Friday October 20th starting at 12pm and run until Friday October 27th at 1pm. It is the only time of year CJAM reaches out to the community for financial support in order to continue daily operations at the station. This year CJAM is allocating funds raised to make some much needed updates to their website, studio, and help prepare for an upcoming digital shift.

“CJAM receives hundreds of new albums every week from different record labels across North America and beyond,” states Brady Holek, Station Manager at CJAM 99.1 FM. “We currently rely on CD submissions but digital submissions are becoming the industry standard, and CJAM needs to be prepared for the eventual digital swing away from CDs. We are hoping to create a framework to receive and store new music, as well as create a database so our programmers can access that music at the station. On top of that, our website needs work in terms of access to archived programs, and we would also like to integrate that with a CJAM streaming/listening app.”

CJAM 99.1 FM is a non-profit campus-community radio station located on the University of Windsor campus. CJAM has been broadcasting on the FM dial since 1983, providing music and information programming not offered by mainstream commercial media. This year, CJAM is offering the following prizes at different donation levels.

Any amount – CJAM sticker
$10-20 – music prize pack (CDs/vinyl)
$20 – vintage CJAM Pledge Drive t-shirt
$50 – CJAM 2017 Pledge Drive t-shirt
$100 – CJAM prize pack (including 2017 t-shirt and gift certificates)

Individuals looking to donate can call in during Pledge Drive week at 519-971-3630 (Windsor) // 1-855-344-2526 (toll free from Detroit and around the world). Donations are also accepted via a secure online donation – Click here to donate now!

“We have been expanding our programming to incorporate more students, including spoken word news from the Digital Journalism department, a heath focused show from 4th year nursing students, and a partnership with the Pro-Bono Students Canada from the law department,” states Carley Schweitzer, Program Director. “Adding these shows to our already hyper-focused spoken word, music, and ethno-cultural programming has created a need to expand online, and this year’s Pledge Drive is dedicated to achieving that. Our site needs to be mobile compatible to keep up in the digital world, with everyone accessing items via the computer in their pockets.”

CJAM FM will also be hosting an event in partnership with the Green Bean Café (located just off campus at 2320 Wyandotte Street West) on Saturday October 21st from 10am to 3pm. The Green Bean’s Sonic Saturdays events feature brunch, and premium coffee products. CJAM FM will feature two of its top DJs (Jim Meloche from Steel Belted Radio and Graeme Sylvio from Sylvio & Soul) spinning vinyl all morning and afternoon for customers. CJAM will also have a swag table with the new t-shirts, stickers, and many more incentives. “It’s a match made in heaven for us,” Holek said. “The Green Bean and CJAM have been working together for a long time and we can’t wait to kick off our fundraising drive with them.”
