Name // DJ Dell 523

// How long have you been involved with CJAM / campus-community radio?
23 years

I started volunteering here during my high-school co-op.

good food and great music.

// What do you love most about CJAM FM?
I love the fact that I am able to showcase a variety of artists that normally don’t get a lot of airplay. This allows me to expose the listening audience to music they may have otherwise missed or not heard. It also often times answers the question that many of us have: Who was this sampled from??

// Anything else you’d like to add?
Please take a listen. I think you will be pleasantly surprised by what you hear. Also you can check out archived shows at www.mixcloud.com/djdell523

About a year

// How did you become involved as a CJAMmer?
I discovered CJAM online by searching for the campus radio station in my second year… the rest is history.

// Describe your show…
Oh boy… Honestly, it’s literally whatever I’m feeling at the moment but it’s ALWAYS flame. From Psychedelic Rock to Neo Soul, House to Indie-Alternative, or Hip Hop to Electronic Retrowave… It varies and I really do listen to everything.

// Who is your favourite artist?
Toro y Moi – that man gets me… Childish Gambino… or Tycho, actually…yeah Tycho

SCHOOL. I double major in Criminology and Sociology with a minor in Social Justice AND i’m the VP of Marketing for the Pre-Law Society, among other clubs. I don’t watch Netflix btw.

// What was your best live music experience?
It has to be Saba. Although I am seeing Kendrick Lamar and TDE in a week. There was only about 50 people at the Saba show – it was very cozy.

// Who do you NEED to see live?
I NEED TO SEE Tame Impala LIVE ….

// What do you love most about CJAM FM?
Carley – she’s like the best roller derby player I freaking know. And Brady – he’s sure got a nice beard. And Gin is cool too – she always says hello to me. I also like how there is always Kleenex in the main studio; I’m allergic to everything.
