Seeing and meeting Cadence Weapon​ at Phog Lounge​. Also last year when I saw Dan Mangan​ play in a barn in Prince Edward County.

… Now, I need to see Andy Shauf​!

// What do you love most about CJAM FM?
I love being surrounded by other programmers who are just as passionate as me about something

// Anything else you’d like to add?

RADIO BRAIN DRAIN 2018

radio-brain-drain-banner-(815X315)
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!

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.

IMG_20180602_182153 - Conner Custance

Name // Stuxnet
Show // OVER9000
When // Mondays 10:30pm – midnight

// How long have you been with CJAM?
I started volunteering in September 2015. My show was established in May 2017.

// How did you become involved as a CJAMmer?
I started off by doing some grunt work, like organizing the music archives, helping the Music Director tag CD’s by genre   for the current library, etc. It wasn’t until 2 years into the CJAM community that I started my very own radio show.

// Describe your show…
It’s simply an eclectic array of electronic music. Everything from EDM, experimental, indie-electronic, and just plain   weird. I always try to include as much variety in the electronic realm as humanly possible.

// Who is your favourite artist?
Oneohtrix Point Never FTW!!!

// My other life consists of…
…producing my own music.

// What was your best live music experience?
It would have to be seeing Hustle Flesh [Museum of Skin], Syndrom IX, DJ Fetal Position, Five Star Hotel, and Machine Girl live at Below in Windsor.

// Who do you NEED to see live?
I would LOVE to catch Richie Hawtin at some point.

// Anything else you’d like to add?
CJAM has a great music selection, amazing staff and volunteers, and an awesome array of programs. Enough said!
