About a year and a half already!

// How did you become involved as a CJAMmer?
I’ve always loved music & radio and was aware that there was a campus radio station at the University of Windsor. I knew I wanted to get involved so my first week of University I came in to check out CJAM and signed up for volunteer orientation.

reading, playing guitar, reality tv, movies, and sad attempts at learning French.

My favourite live experience was getting to meet Courtney Barnett after a show & telling her she is my favourite guitarist! 

// What do you love most about CJAM?
I love that every time I come into CJAM there are always different and interested people to meet and talk to. I also love how there is so much to learn at CJAM – from the people who work & volunteer there, to the music played & topics discussed on air.
