Joe Strummer Day 2020

On December 22nd, 2020 CJAM is celebrating our 11th annual Joe Strummer Day radio marathon where we strive to put a focus on poverty, homelessness, and call the community to action in the Windsor-Detroit areas and beyond.

Starting at midnight on the 18th anniversary of Strummer’s death, CJAM will dedicate 24-hours to the cause. All regular programming will be pre-empted while our staff, activists, musicologists, and journalists work together to get the world to listen to poverty issues. Terrestrially, the broadcast can be heard at CJAM 99.1 FM in Windsor-Detroit. Worldwide, you can stream us online at www.cjam.ca, or on the TuneIn app.
