This week, we’re going to begin our descent into the dark side. The leaves are changing colors and falling to the ground. There’s a slight chill in the air. You see a shadow for a split second from just around the corner. Or did you? Better keep your holy water, crucifixes, and silver weapons of choice handy, fellow Jammers, and stay with us as we hold out until sunrise…

… But in the meantime, we can always listen to some macabre music to lift our spirits––– pun always intended––– with a set of…

“Jammin’ with Jamie” Theme: “Job Jams”!

Hi, everyone!

We’re celebrating the 4th of July on Jammin’ with Jamie, though in a different way than you might expect.

Since we jammed to politically-adjacent pieces recently, we’re going tackle this jam session from a different angle. We’re going to turn our focus to a subject that gets a lot of political attention from every side of the proverbial aisle.

So spruce up your resume and brush up on your interview skills, because we’re going to be jammin’ to some…

You’re hired!

In the second part of this two-part theme, we’re going to delve into the many bumps on the road of love.

We need to talk…

“Jammin’ with Jamie” Theme: “Monster Melodies (Halloween 2016: Part 5)”!

Hi, everyone!

This is my one-hundredth blog entry! Woo-hoo!

As I have made clear in so many previous posts here (and on other sites), I’m a big fan of horror (and horror comedy). I have a special place in my heart for monster movies. Monster movie fans often dub ourselves, “Monster Kids.”

This week on Jammin’ with Jamie, we’re unleashing our inner Monster Kids––– or maybe, for some of you Jammers, discovering them––– with one of my personal favorite of our Halloween jam session themes…

“Listen to them… the songs of the night…”
