“Jammin’ with Jamie” Theme: “Questioning Choruses”!

Hi, everyone!

This week is a landmark Jammin’ with Jamie!

OMG (Oh My Goulash)!

Yes! We’ll be giving away two tickets to Rachel Bloom’s concert on September 21 at the Chicago Theatre, as part of her “What Am I Going to Do with My Life Now?” tour!

Yes, I’m serious, and don’t call me… oh wait, you didn’t.

By total and complete coincidence, our theme coincides perfectly with Rachel Bloom’s concert tour’s title! (I’m not even kidding: I’ve had this theme planned for a while.)

Art imitates life, imitates art, snake eats tail, equals MC squared, singularity… My brain hurts…

No question about it, we’re going to be jammin’ to…

(Begins vocal warm-ups)

… “Questioning Choruses”!

This week, we’ll be jammin’ to pieces that pose questions. From the trivial, everyday questions, to the big, life-determining questions, to the weird, “Who would even ask that?” questions.

Can you send me your notes from that class?

Here’s how the contest is going to work: at some point during Jammin’ with Jamie this Saturday (September 14, 2019), between 6 and 7am Central Time, I’ll ask a Rachel Bloom-related trivia question. The first person to call (847) 866-WNUR with the correct answer and their e-mail address will win!

And that person can then #HumbleBrag.

The tunes we’ll be jammin’ to this week come courtesy of artists such as Judy Kuhn, Hayley Atwell, and more! Certain selections come from films such as The Nightmare Before Christmas (1993), Frozen (2013), The Rocky Horror Picture Show (1975), and Tangled (2010), TV shows such as Galavant and Crazy Ex-Girlfriend, and musicals such as If/Then and Wicked: The Untold Story of the Witches of Oz! Check out the categories and tags below for more!

My fellow Jammers, I cannot overstate how excited I am to do this. Those of you who’ve jammed with us on Jammin’ with Jamie even once almost certainly know how much I enjoy Rachel Bloom’s work and Crazy Ex-Girlfriend. Those of you who are longtime loyal Jammers can probably guess when certain favorite songs of mine will play based on my joke setups leading into them. We’ve sung, danced, and laughed along to these clever, insightful, hysterical, and wacky tunes pretty much since Crazy Ex-Girlfriend premiered. It’s a joy to use my platform on the radio to spread the word about work and artists I admire and enjoy. This giveaway is an incredible opportunity, and I’m so excited for whomever wins the tickets!

An accurate portrayal of my excitement. “BLAM!!!” indeed.

I hope you consider jammin’ with us this Saturday at 7 am ET/6 am CT on 89.3 WNUR FM! If you like what you hear, let me know: I record every show and will happily send it to you! For more information about Jammin’ with Jamie, go here!

Thank you for reading, listening, “jammin’,” and being “crazy,”
Jamie Lee
