CJAM was in the process of changing from 91.5FM to our current frequency of 99.1FM. The night was hosted by CJAM staff at the time, Adam Fox, Cassandra Caverhill, and Chris White. Throughout this week’s episode, you can hear the original music played during the party and the interviews conducted with CJAM alumni. The show and the night concludes with the last song ever played on 91.5FM.
