CJAM 40th Anniversary Pledge Drive and Archive Compilation Album & Shows # 1013, 1011, 1010, 1009

This November CJAM geared up to celebrate its 40th anniversary with their annual pledge drive and some events! 40 years of broadcasting and making sonic connections in the Windsor/Detroit area. A lot has changed since 1983, but one thing that hasn’t changed is CJAM providing a voice and content for the community and public as a whole that wouldn’t otherwise be heard. Whether it is obscure punk, hardcore tracks, indie rock, world music, jazz, soul, electronic music or everything in-between and beyond that CJAM has it and is highlighting it in some fashion. To celebrate this event CJAM held several events in the community ending off the pledge drive on November 18th with a party featuring live performances and a live broadcast from Art Windsor Essex. 

But, if you didn’t get a chance there’s still time to support CJAM FM. We offer some great incentives as a thank you for your support for non-profit, listener-supported radio. Whether you listen online through our archives, stream from our website or listen on the FM dial CJAM is here to provide with content you won’t hear anywhere else. Music, spoken word programming, exclusive interviews, a different perspective and more.

C JAM Live off the Floor II: 2006 to 2023

I also wanted to talk a bit the compilation that CJAM FM has available this year. We have a limited edition compilation featuring recordings made in the CJAM studios from the past 17 years covering the years 2006-2023. Currently available as a pre-order, these are one of a kind performances that were done specifically for the station and you won’t be able to get anywhere else. There are performances here from artists such as Danny Kroha (of The Gories), By Divine Right, Shotgun Jimmie, Psychic Void, Steph Copeland, What Seas What Shores, The Locusts Have No King, Raised By Weeds (an early band featuring musician Paul Jacobs), Barzin and more! Twenty different artists and if that isn’t enough it is coming out on limited edition cassette (w/download code) and a zine that features each artist commenting on the song and performance featured in this set.

You can get this with the zine for $25 (as mentioned above) and support CJAM FM in the process. It is also available digitally via bandcamp.
