Don Janzen hosts Radio Nowhere I came of age musically in the mid sixties. My first music memory is sitting n my neighbour's dad's semi cab and hearing She Loves You on the radio. That was it for me. A little later I graduated to the FM dial just in time to catch the great Detroit underground FM Rock era. I love the music made in that time but don't expect another version of a classic dinosaur rock station playing the same 20 songs all day. I'll be playing more deeper dive stuff from then. My tastes expanded to old blues and modern rock. So hopefully you hear some old favourites and a discover few new ones too. Let me know what you think.

Radio Nowhere

show logoRadio Nowhere plays Rock and Roll from the sixties and seventies — some standard tunes as well as more obscure deep cuts — along with a taste of rhythm and blues, some modern alt rock, soul, funk, blues, punk, alt country and Afrobeat.

Something familiar and hopefully something new and a better appreciation of the roots and future of the most revolutionary and popular form of music in history..

Radio Nowhere is hosted by Don Janzen and airs on CKMS-FM on Sunday from Midnight to 1:00am.
