CJAM TOP 30 & SPECIALTY CHARTS // November 22 – 29, 2020

Huttch‘s new EP, Quick Fix has attacked and dethroned CJAM’s compilation, Live Off the Floor – which had been at the top of our charts since it was released back in October. Toronto’s Partner came in an extremely close #2. Calgary’s CJSW released their own compilation (Vital Signs: Live Sessions from CJSW 90.9FM) of live records of Calgary artists that reached #8 on the charts this week. London, ON artists Monarch and Dangersex have taken #1 spots on our electronic and loud charts respectively. And Vancouver’s Dan Mangan‘s new cover album tops our Folk charts this week. It’s been a very Cancon week here at CJAM – just doing our patriotic duty!
