For almost 40 years CJAM has provided an alternative to the mainstream through the sharing of independent music of any genre, created anywhere with the Windsor-Detroit community. With the integration of web technology in the 1990s, we began sharing our unique musical tastes with the world. What makes us so unique you ask? We provide niche programming that speaks to a set of sub-cultures that are often ignored or maligned by corporate media. At CJAM, anything goes. We call on our vast array of volunteers, their skills, knowledge and most of all passion to create programs that broadcast music new and old in a variety of formats. From Hip Hop to Punk, Bluegrass to Techno, Jazz to Dub and beyond, we aim to leave no musical stone uncovered. We invite you to explore our Programming Schedule and find a show the suits your tastes and musical needs. We can assure you’ll find something you’ll love.
Some years ago we decided to create some block programming on weekdays to help our listeners find their favourite genres. From Monday – Friday afternoon on you’ll generally here hear…
Indie Rock from 10:30am – 12:00pm
Music Variety from 1:00pm – 4:00pm
Loud Rock // Electronic // Hip Hop from 9:00pm – 12:00 am
The rest of our music programming is made up of an array of genre-specific and music variety programs.
Every week CJAM reports its charts of top current music to Earshot! & CMJ helping shape the National and North American independent music landscape. For more info on our charts click HERE.
