First of all, I know I’ve been writing quite a bit about Jammin’ with Jamie. This will change soon: I promise! (Hint: come back this Saturday at 9:00 am.)
Second, I’ve recently found out that “Sportsathon” will be taking over 89.3 WNUR FM for twenty-four hours next Friday and Saturday. Unfortunately, this means our jam session will be preempted next week. So, after this week, our next jam session will take place on November 2: same time, same station!
This also means that this will be our last explicitly Halloween-themed jam session––– well, for a while, anyway. (There’s a very high likelihood that another Halloween-themed jam session will pop up again before we go on summer hiatus. The individual songs, on the other hand, may come around again at any time.)
So, in this week’s jam session, we’re going to have two intertwined (and related) themes, as we jam to…
“Monstrous Melodies/Haunting Halloween Harmonies (Halloween 2013: Part 3)!”
Yes, I admit that the theme name is a bit more cumbersome than usual… but, as I said earlier, we have to cover what would’ve been next week’s jam session, too, so this one will be jam-packed! (Wait: was that a pun? Uh… pun intended!)
We’ll be jammin’ to tunes about various different monsters, as well as songs that directly have to do with Halloween!
So far, this week’s “Monstrous Melodies/Haunting Halloween Harmonies” come courtesy of artists such as Svengoolie (Svengoolie.com), Warren Zevon, and Elvira, Mistress of the Dark (Elvira.com). (Actually, we’ll be jammin’ to multiple songs from Sven and Elvira!) Certain selections come from films such as The Nightmare Before Christmas (1993), Corpse Bride (2005), and Scooby-Doo! Music of the Vampire (2011). As always, of course, that’s just a small portion of what’s in store for you when we jam together again this Saturday!
I hope you consider jammin’ with us this week! If you’d like more information about the show and how you can tune in and jam with us, you can find everything you need right here!
Thank you for reading, listening, and jammin’,
