Welcoming Matt Findlater – CJAMs new Music Director

CJAM is happy to announce the hiring of Matthew Findlater as Music Director. Matt has been involved at the station for many years as a volunteer and work study employee. We couldn’t be happier to see him join the team! A quick note from Matt is below.

“I am a graduate of the University of Windsor with degrees in history and most recently education (someday I will be teaching your child – terrifying, I know). I am also terrible at talking about myself. I’ve been playing in bad punk bands (and at least 1 terrible ska band) for many, many years. While doing my undergrad I was a work study student at CJAM and spent most of my time in the music department, but also hosted a couple extremely niche, extremely late-night shows. I care a lot about music, radical history, and social justice, and am extremely excited to be a part of the CJAMily (get it!?  it’s a portmanteau of CJAM and family… I am killing it in this bio).”

CJAM Closing Doors to Public Until Further Notice

As a preventative measure to avoid transmission of the COVID-19 virus, CJAM has made the decision to close the station to the public until further notice. Programmers, other station volunteers, and guests will not be permitted to access the station during this time.

CJAM Radio will continue to broadcast on 99.1 FM and online at cjam.ca. We will still be featuring new content that is pre-recorded elsewhere. We will also be digging into our archives to bring you content from years past. We want to ensure CJAM stays on the airwaves but at a low risk to everyone involved. If you have any questions or concerns please reach out to Station Manager Brady Holek via email at statcjam@gmail.com or by phone 519-253-3000 ext. 2525.

CJAM Not Streaming this Weekend

The University of Windsor is going to be doing some power maintenance in the CAW Student Center on June 13th so unfortunately you won’t be able to stream CJAM online, but we are still able to broadcast on FM since our tower is in another location! Check us out at 99.1 FM locally, and remember you will be able to catch up on any shows you missed at www.cjam.ca once the power is back on Sunday. Thanks for listening.
