CJAM FM announces Technology Lending Library

CJAM 99.1 FM is excited to announce our new Technology Lending Library!

Art Alley and Foundations of Canada grant reveal in downtown Windsor

Supported by the Government of Canada, Foundations of Canada, and the Windsor-Essex Community Foundation, CJAM FM will now have technology items to rent out to our community members, including
~ laptops
~ tablets
~ at home microphone kits
~ DJ controllers
~ Go-Pro cameras
~ access to industry-standard recording software


On May 27th 2022, CJAM FM joined the Downtown Windsor Business Improvement Association in their newly unveiled Art Alley for a press announcement by the Windsor-Essex Community Foundation, along with other Windsor-Essex grant recipients.

With COVID still presenting barriers to access, CJAM FM will now have equipment available for rent to our Windsor-Essex community members! Purchasing technology has been a struggle for campus/community radio across Canada and this grant has given the station a tremendous boost in being able to outreach to even more volunteers – increasing the number of new voices on the airwaves.

Additionally, visiting CJAM & our space on the University of Windsor campus isn’t always easy so bus passes will be available to lower the transportation barrier.

New Equipment at CJAM FM

What’s in the box!? (Kojak for scale)

Through support from the All-Star Gaming Association at the All-Star Gaming Centre, CJAM 99.1 FM has been able to make some major upgrades to our live-on-air studio! With this funding, we have been able to purchase a new board. Our volunteers and staff can now use industry standard broadcasting equipment every single day and with this advancement, we will be able to host four microphones, where previously we only had access to three, increasing the amount of voices on air. The equipment also has the ability to connect to laptops and tablets, a function that was not previously available with our 20+ year old equipment.

Staying up-to-date and relevant in the quickly changing world of technology has been a struggle for campus/community radio stations across Canada. The staff and volunteers at CJAM 99.1 FM couldn’t be more excited to use our new equipment knowing we will be broadcasting at an expert level for years to come! We’ll be making the switch on May 28th & May 29th so please bear with us as we go through some changes.

Kojak the Dog & the CJAM FM team thank you for your continued support <3
