History[edit]

Windsor's FM/Country 95-9[edit]

Logo used from 2009-2010

CJWF was licensed on May 9, 2008.[1] The station began test broadcasts on the night of September 22, 2009 in the wake of 106.7 The Fox flipping from country to rhythmic adult contemporary, along with appeals for the reporting of technical problems with reception. The station officially launched on the morning of November 16, 2009 at 8am as "Windsor's FM 95-9". The first song played was "Welcome to the Future" by Brad Paisley.

On September 7, 2010 the station rebranded itself as "Country 95-9, The Motor Cities Country". Later that month on September 22, 2010, the state began broadcasting station information, which can be seen on Radio Data System-enabled radios. From November 26 to December 26, 2010, the station switched to an all Christmas Country format for the holidays.

On July 31, 2012, at 5am, after a mass budget cut at Blackburn Radio, sister station 92.7 Max-FM dropped its variety hits format and began simulcasting with CJWF as "Windsor's' Country 95.9 & 92-7".

As such, CJWF is one of two stations (the other being CFCO) heard in Detroit that plays Canadian Country music that is not played by stations in the United States.[2]
