I have been doing a radio program on CJAM 99.1 FM for the past eight years (approximately) called Revolution Rock. The show focuses on 60s garage rock, 70s punk/new wave, alternative, surf and indie music genres. I recently found out about this place and thought I should join up.
My show airs live every Tuesday from 10:30 AM until Noon on CJAM 99.1 FM in the Windsor/Detroit area, but it can also be streamed online at www.cjam.ca (here is a direct link to the stream: http://stream.cjam.ca:8000/listen.pls)
The show can be downloaded every week at:
(the links remain for 30 days)
It can also be subscribed to as a podcast at the link above.
There are a few other ways that my show has been active in the online community.
1. My blog - http://revrock.blogspot.com - I have been running this blog since 2006, slowly building up a fan base. Every week I write a different band profile and post the play list as well as download links to my program.
2. My facebook page - http://www.facebook.com/pages/Revolution-Rock-on-CJAM-991-FM/205309... - This is another page that provides direct links and videos. It also serves as a more direct link to whats going on with my radio program as it happens.
Thanks for your time,
Hopefully some of you can give my show a listen!
