Get to Know a CJAM Show: Productive Confusion


Show: Productive Confusion, Fridays 6:30-8:00PM
Host: Murad Erzinclioglu

Tell me a little about your show, in your own words:
“It’s free form programming that actively and opening defies any type of categorization. We focus on new music.”

How did you get started with CJAM:
“I was at Club Days at the University when I was a first year student. We were walking and the music director was there, he encouraged me to start my own radio show. I had done a radio show in high school, so I did that and I had hosted the announcements every morning in high school. Also a lot of my friends were involved her at CJAM. I was on the air a couple days later.”

What was the first album you ever bought:
“A Colombia House thing. So I got like ten CDs. There was a Reservoir Dogs Soundtrack and Primus’ The Brown Album. I started buying CDs at that point.”

Name one song that would represent your show:
“I don’t think I could ever really do that. Because my show is so diverse, there is no one artist that would incorporate all of the music.”

CJAM Flashback Unearths 30 Years of FM History

Come celebrate CJAM’s 30th Anniversary on the FM dial every Tuesday afternoon from 4:30-5PM with CJAM Flashback. We dig deep in our archives to bring you sounds from the last three decades and interviews with the people who have made CJAM what it is today. Listen back each week for 30 minutes covering 30 years.

Tuesday, October 1st, we dig back to some of our 25th anniversary coverage.  When we were making the switch to 99.1FM, we invited former CJAM Program Director Chris Burston to interview former CJAM Station Manager Russ Wolske about the initial switch to FM and early days of the station. Sprinkled into the show is music by Windsor punk royalty, The Spys.
