“Jammin’ with Jamie” Theme: “Taxtime Tunes”!

Hi, everyone!

So how are you doing on those taxes, fellow Jammers?

Whether you’re panicking because you’re filing late or breathing a deep sigh of relief because you finished before the deadline, relax and have fun with us on this week’s Jammin’ with Jamie!

Yes, we’re filing this annual Jammin’ with Jamie tradition a tad late this year, but unlike filing income taxes late, there’s no penalty for having a tax-themed jam session late… I think.

Either way, you don’t need to file any paperwork to reap the benefits of…

Cha-ching!

“Jammin’ with Jamie” Theme: “Easter Egg Hunt Harmonies”!

Hi, everyone!

I did another musical improv show at iO in Chicago in the group “Charge Me Up”! Check out our performance!

I’m putting my improv shows in a playlist on my YouTube channel, which you can check out here:

It’s no secret that Jammin’ with Jamie loves to celebrate holidays! As has become a tradition for our jam sessions, we’ll be going on a hunt for a heap of…

Grab your baskets!

“Jammin’ with Jamie” Theme: “Duped Ditties”!

Hi, everyone!

I just did a musical improv show at iO in Chicago as part of the group “Charge Me Up”! Check out our performance!

We have another show Monday, April 10, at 10:30 pm! Want to come? Get tickets here!

April Fools might be over, but we’re going to keep celebrating on Jammin’ with Jamie, and that’s no joke!

No kidding: it’s time to jam to a deck of…

No foolin’!

“Jammin’ with Jamie” Theme: “Misfit Melodies”!

Hi, everyone!

Thank you all so much, Jammers, for tuning in for and participating in Elliott Serrano’s and my conversation about Pee-wee’s Big Holiday to celebrate the film’s one-year anniversary! Elliott and I had a wonderful and fun conversation…

… that has been immortalized on YouTube!

If you’re a Jammin’ with Jamie Jammer, it’s safe to say that you’re anything but typical… just like me!

But bands of misfits make the best music! And we’re going to prove that once and for all by jammin’ to a mix of…

Weirdos unite!

“Jammin’ with Jamie” Theme: “‘Pee-wee’s Big Holiday’ Anniversary Celebration (with Special Guest Elliott Serrano)”!

Hi, everyone!

On March 18, 2016, Pee-wee’s Big Holiday, starring Pee-wee Herman, debuted on Netflix. That makes this Saturday the film’s one-year anniversary!

In honor of Pee-wee’s Big Holiday’s big anniversary, here’s a picture of my foil ball! It’s been growing since February 19, 2015, and now has 100 pieces of foil!

So… “Let’s see how big my foil ball is today!”

Pee-wee Herman: “It’s THIS tall!”

Given how much I talked about the film before its release… years before its release… how big of a Pee-wee Herman fan I am in general (Exibit A! Exibit B! Exibit C!), and the fact that Pee-wee’s Big Holiday’s anniversary falls on a Saturday, I just can’t pass up the opportunity to celebrate!

So why don’t you join us this week for our grand…

“Why don’t YOU?!”

“Jammin’ with Jamie” Theme: “Meteorological Melodies”!

Hi, everyone!

It’s March, which means a major upheaval in weather. In the Midwest in particular, it means a mix of heat, snow, wind, rain, rainbows, and more.

So pack your raincoat, winter boots, sunscreen, and all your other weather-braving supplies for this whirlwind jam session, because this week, the forecast calls for…

“Here’s your ‘Local on the 8s’!”

“Jammin’ with Jamie” Theme: “New-Fangled Follies”!

Hi, everyone!

We’re getting close to spring, and a new season brings all sorts of transitions to other new things. This is especially true for spring: the warm temperatures coming back, plants starting to grow again, birds coming back from migration and hatching their eggs, and more all give us a feeling of new beginnings and new life.

So this week, on an all-new Jammin’ with Jamie, we’re going to jam to…

NEW! NEW! NEW!

“Jammin’ with Jamie” Theme: “Friendship Follies”!

Hi, everyone!

It’s time to continue another grand and beloved––– by me, anyway––– Jammin’ with Jamie tradition!

Now that Valentine’s Day has passed, the intense focus on romantic relationships has become… slightly less intense. But whether you’re in a romantic relationship or not, it’s important to remember that other relationships are just as important!

So grab your friends and join us for a flock of…

“Thank you for being a Jammer!”

“Jammin’ with Jamie” Theme: “Romantic Troubles Tunes”!

Hi, everyone!

Whether you spent Valentine’s Day with your significant other, a friend or group of friends, or just yourself, I hope the day was a great one! Here on Jammin’ with Jamie, we’re going to keep celebrating!

In the second part of this two-part theme, we’re going to delve into the many bumps on the road of love. From the hoops people jump through to impress, to love triangles, to fights of epic proportions, we’re going to be working through a lot of issues this week in our own unique Jammin’ with Jamie way, with a track list of…

We need to talk…

“Jammin’ with Jamie” Theme: “Love at First Listen Lyrics”!

Hi, everyone!

Next week is Valentine’s Day.

Now that you’ve returned from buying a gift in a panic, let’s move on to this week’s Jammin’ with Jamie theme!

Continuing a grand and beloved (by me, anyway) Jammin’ with Jamie tradition, we’ll be spending Valentine’s Day jammin’ to songs that’ll make us cry… because we’re laughing so hard!

In the first part of a two-part theme, we’ll be dodging Cupid’s arrows to the tune of…

It’s true love!
