Veteran Detroit broadcaster and influential taste-maker, Judy Adams starts 
a new weekly music show on CJAM, 91.5 FM starting tomorrow, Tuesday, 
October 24 at 9am.

  "The Judy Adams Program" will be part of the mid-morning line-up, airing 
each Tuesday from 9-10:30am, and will feature her signature, cosmopolitan 
mix of Jazz, Blues, World and roots musics; all genres she's championed for 
over 30 years on Detroit public radio.

She says she's "looking forward to this new creative outlet and sharing 
great music with folks again. CJAM is by-far, one of the most progressive 
and diverse stations in North America and it's going to be awesome doing a 
show there especially with the creative freedom they give their 
hosts.  Where else can I play John Lee Hooker, Miles Davis, and Fela Kuti 
all in the same show?"

CJAM 91.5FM is a campus-based, community radio station from the University 
of Windsor. People can listen anytime and anywhere in the world on-line at 
CJAM.Ca. and All programs are available for downloading and streaming up to 
30 days after broadcast.   Listeners can email Judy at CJAM at

during the station's upcoming pledge drive which runs from October 
1st  through Monday Nov. 6.

Judy Adams has been a mainstay in Detroit radio since the late 1960's, 
having worked for several Detroit stations including WWWW-FM, WXYZ-AM, 
WRIF-FM, and most recently, WDET-FM.  She is also a trained composer, 
musicologist and pianist. Currently, she is not only free-lancing as an 
independent music consultant, but is preparing for an upcoming major, 
multi-media project based on a series of ink paintings by renowed Detroit 
artist, Jon Strand.  It includes a flash animation short in which Adams 
wrote and performed an original score that she will perform as part of  a 
special program at the Max M. Fisher Music Center next spring. It also 
incorporates a dance piece choreographed by Marygrove's Director of Dance, 
Judith Molina and glass sculptures created by notable Detroit glass 
artists, Erik, Israel and Chris Nordin.
