Honoring the life of the former Clash front man with 24 hours of music from Joe Strummer, as well as interviews, reports and calls to action surrounding poverty and homelessness in Windsor/Detroit. Full schedule below.

    Midnight-2am: Kick-off with Brady

    2am-3am: Strummer Variety Hour with Taya

    Join host Taya as she gets the late night started with a fun selection of Strummer’s music

    3-5am: Mick Jones Special with Joe

    7-8am: No Thank You with Micaela & Melissa

    In a special edition of “No Thank You,” Micaela and Melissa discuss actions taken towards dealing with poverty in Windsor, as well as women’s issues as they relate to poverty

    8-10am: Covers Calling with Thomas

    Join host Thomas as he plays London Calling and The Clash back-to-back, but instead of original versions, these songs are all covers of some of the most well-known Clash albums

    10-11am: Handi-Link with Cam

    In a special edition of “Handi-Link,” Cam interviews the Mayor of Sarnia to talk about provincial disability employment challenges and a representative from Avalon employment about disability employment overseas.

    11am-1pm: Midday Roundup with Carley

    Join Carley as she reflects back on the first half of Joe Strummer Day 2019, discussing the interview and special programming, as well as playing some music and giving a sneak peak at what’s to come for the rest of the JSD 10th anniversary

    1:30-2pm: Special Rebroadcast: Homelessness & Poverty Roundtable

    As part of the 10 year anniversary of Joe Strummer Day on CJAM FM, we are rebroadcasting some significant material from the past. Recorded in 2010, Vern Smith interviews Dr. Jamie Crawley from the Nursing Department at the University of Windsor, who views poverty and homelessness from a health perspective, and Liz Atkinson who at the time was the Chair of the health committee on homelessness Windsor as well as the Chair of the Homeless Coalition of Windsor/Essex. We are re-airing this material because many of the problems and issues facing Windsor and Detroit that are discussed still exist and have not been addressed almost 10 years later.

    2-4pm: Revolution Rock Celebrates London Calling’s 40th Anniversary

    This special episode of Revolution Rock will discuss The Clash’s 1979 album London Calling which is celebrating its 40th anniversary.  London Calling changed all preconceived notions of what punk was.  Although The Clash came from the UK punk scene, London Calling reflected the band’s interest in different styles of music such as reggae, ska, rockabilly, jazz and pop.  This episode will feature songs from London Calling along with demos from the vanilla tapes that proceeded this album, live recordings and more.  

    4-4:30pm: Windsor’s 10 Year Housing and Homelessness Master Plan

    Station Manager Brady Holek has a conversation with Debbie Cercone, Executive Director of Housing and Children’s Services for the City of Windsor. They discuss the Citys 10 year Housing and Homelessness Master Plan, where things stand compared to the 2014 plan, and the City of Windsor’s plans for the future.

    “Everything’s No Good” host Carley interviews Caleb of the Green Bean Café about their annual free Holiday dinner for the community and its long-standing tradition
