CJAM - Joe Strummer Day 2020

Post by blureu »

CJAM is a nonprofit radio station located at University of Windsor in Windsor Ontario. I recall listening to their marathon last year. Some great programming again this year. I believe you can listen to the shows on their archive for a month.

On December 22nd, 2020 CJAM is celebrating our 11th annual Joe Strummer Day radio marathon where we strive to put a focus on poverty, homelessness, and call the community to action in the Windsor-Detroit areas and beyond.

Starting at midnight on the 18th anniversary of Strummer’s death, CJAM will dedicate 24-hours to the cause. All regular programming will be pre-empted while our staff, activists, musicologists, and journalists work together to get the world to listen to poverty issues.

Thanks for the heads up. I've listened a couple of times in past years and found it enjoyable.

New member here. I was going to post about Joe Strummer Day on CJAM FM - not sure if it was posted about before (I don’t recall seeing it - other than this post). Anyways, I’m a programmer/DJ at CJAM FM and have taken part in this marathon every year doing several special focus programs. Sometimes it’s just music, sometimes it’s music combined with issues relating to poverty/homelessness in Windsor/Detroit.

Back in 2016 I had the chance to interview Tymon Dogg. While the episode is no longer online, the interview is still on my website. I thought it might be of some interest to others on this board. We discussed recording his first single “Bitter Thoughts of Little Jane”, working with Paul McCartney, recording and playing with The Mescaleros, The Clash on Sandinista/Combat Rock, his 2015 album Made of Light, issues relating to poverty and many other things.

Here’s a link to that:
