New Programming on CJAM FM

Introducing some changes to our lineup for Summer 2016.
Read on for more info on new // revived // current shows!



The Mixtape is a brand new program airing on Wednesdays from 10:30AM-noon.
Do you remember back in the day when you wanted all of your favorite songs from all different genres complied together, but you had to go through the process of taping them off of the radio? The Mixtape, hosted by Rachel, offers that same concept without the hassle of waiting near your stereo to press record. Sit back and listen to a wide array of music such as alternative, indie, hip hop, funk, blues &beyond.


All in a Day’s Work has re-surfaced, with new hosts & a new outlook. Check it out Thursday afternoons from 4:00PM-5:00PM
Join Mike & Jenny for a living documentary of two workers lives. Dealing with topics across the political spectrum, talking workers issues, and engaging in interviews and meaningful conversations.
Eastern Breeze has been on CJAMs airwaves for over a year now and is moving to our Friday afternoon lineup. Hang out with Sam & Danish every Friday from 2:30PM-4:00PM
A show with a focus on desi-South Asian music. Your Friday afternoons will lighten up with great music from different genres popular in India, Pakistan, and most of the remaining Asia. On top of that, fantastic Canadian music will be mixed in too!


 Stagediving Live! is your weekly concert update for acts coming through the Windsor-Detroit area. Join a rotating cast of hosts for interviews, album reviews, live coverage, concert listings, and a variety of music selections. Every Monday from 12:00PM-1:00PM
