Welcome to the haunted halls of Oracle...won't you sit a spell and listen?

Today on Oracle, I took a trip to a darker side.  Swirling psychedelic tunes that invoke the smells and sounds of Autumn.  Leaves crunching under your feet, the smell of smoke rising from a chimney, the chill that creeps up your arm when you pass a cemetery at night...

Tune in, turn on but don't look back...

Below is the complete play list for today's show.  Download here to listen again:

Haunted Oracle

Tune in, turn on, but don't turn back...

This Monday, October 29, tune in as Oracle travels on the dark side for Halloween. Oracle will feature some spine tingling tunes.  A worldly array of dark & mysterious psychedelia is the order of the day.  

There will be no Spooky Tooth but there will be no shortage of just plain Spooky.  So be sure to listen when it's dark, with your favourite incense burning and perhaps your lava lamp.  Rumour has it that Zombies enjoy psychedelic music and will be too mesmerized to attack you.  Best not to take any chances eh?  Tune in on your radio at 99.1 FM or elsewhere via the internet at

One other little detail...if you're in the area.  Drop in to the CJAM studio.  Located in the basement of the CAW Centre on the University of Windsor campus for a massive amount of delicious candy.  Oracle aims to please not just your ears but also your taste buds.  

Happy Halloween friends.  Peace!

CJAM rules the underground...

Oh, so soft...and stylish too...

Important Pledge Drive News!

You Are Cordially Invited To a Love-In...

Monday, November 12, 2012

Please read the following as the original plan has been changed and is outlined below:

Tune in to Oracle at 9:00 am for a very special Pledge Drive edition of Oracle.
So far, I have been taking pledges in advance and will be taking more during the pledge drive episode. I shall be conducting a Love-In to raise funds and awareness for CJAM and for Oracle.
CJAM & Oracle play an important roll in the Windsor-Detroit communities.
My aim is to promote the freedom we have at CJAM to provide information and music that mainstream media ignores due to the -all mighty dollar-
We don't care about shareholders, we care about YOU!

So the Oracle Pledge drive show will run from 9-10:30, then I'll be at the studio until 4:00 taking your calls and greeting those who stop in.  

Refreshments, Fun & Music all provided!
