“Jammin’ with Jamie” Theme: “Sidesplitting Serenades (Part 1)!”

Hi, everyone!

It’s that time of year.

All the pink… all the hearts… all that mushy… stuff…

It can only mean one thing…

Valentine’s Day.

(Cue dramatic music…)

Some people love it, some people hate it, and some people go back and forth depending on their relationship status at the time. But no matter what your feelings are about Valentine’s Day, there’s one thing we call all agree on: Jammin’ with Jamie is the place to be!

Why? Good question…

In the fifth installment (third since I’ve started this blog) of a grand Jammin’ with Jamie tradition, we’ll laugh our hearts out as we jam to…

I’m already in love!

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

Hi, everyone!

I’m ba-ack!

That’s right: Jammin’ with Jamie is back on the air on 89.3 WNUR FM every Saturday morning from 6:00 to 7:00 am!

It seems that we’re finally getting some winter weather!

But, after such a warm holiday season, it can be difficult to adjust to weather we would usually be used to by now.

So, how do we get into the season?

Don’t worry: I have a plan! Join me as we jam to…

This is going to be so “COOL”!

“Jammin’ with Jamie” Theme: “Jamie’s Favorite Jams (Part 2)”!

Hi, everyone!

Our final Jammin’ with Jamie jam session is this Saturday, June 13, from 6:00 to 9:00 am!

Well… here we are.

From the instant I found out I was going to be on the air for the first time in October 2011––– before the show was even called Jammin’ with Jamie––– I knew the show would have an end date.

I expected the end date to be “as soon as someone other than my parents heard my voice on an audio-only medium.”

I had to re-apply for my slot three times a year, so for a while, there was also the possibility that someone else would get the slot.

But at this point, I’m moving on to a new chapter in my life. I’m filled with that trademark mix of excitement and worry that comes every time you embark on a new start––– something I always encourage you Jammers to do on my show, making sure I always give you the proper motivational melodies to get stuck in your head and give you that extra push when you need it.

I want to assure all of you: the last time I sign off of Jammin’ with Jamie isn’t the last you’ll hear from me. In fact, it’s just the beginning. Make sure you keep checking this website, my Twitter, and my YouTube account, and we can keep up with each other’s adventures together!

So with that, I give you our final Jammin’ with Jamie jam session theme. Are you ready?

Let’s jam!

“Jammin’ with Jamie” Theme: “Jamie’s Favorite Jams (Part 1)”!

Hi, everyone!

Our final Jammin’ with Jamie jam session will be Saturday, June 13, from 6:00 to 9:00 am!

After four amazing years, our wonderful Jammin’ with Jamie ride is slowly coming to an end.

I know what you’re thinking: First Letterman leaves, then Jon Stewart, now Jamie?! What is the world coming to?!

Well, the last time I sign off of Jammin’ with Jamie isn’t the last you’ll hear from me. In fact, it’s just the beginning. Make sure you keep checking this website, my Twitter, and my YouTube account, and we can keep up with each other’s adventures together!

I love so much about doing Jammin’ with Jamie. One of the things I love is getting to share the music I love with all you Jammers out there!

So now that the end (for now) is in sight, I think it’s high time we put as many of them as we can together and jam to…

I’m hungry for some JAM!

“Jammin’ with Jamie” Theme: “Summer Songs”!

Hi, everyone!

It may not feel like it, but believe it or not, it’s almost June!

Everyone has his/her/their favorite summer activities. Unfortunately, while it is getting warmer, it’s still not quite warm enough for many of these activities.

But we all should still stock up on sunscreen, keep our shorts at the ready, and know where our towels are (in true Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy fashion!), because suddenly, it’ll be 100 degrees and humid outside!

So of course, we’re going to use this jam session to prepare for just that. Imagine how great it’ll be when you walk out all decked out in summer gear and ready for fun while everyone else is still shocked and adjusting to seeing the sun again, and all because you jammed with us to…

The suspense is heating up!

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

Hi, everyone!

Even though it may not feel like it, it is indeed officially spring!

Spring is one of those times when it seems like everything gets the chance to start new––– trees’ leaves grow back, flowers start blooming again, and animals are running around outside again, many with new families!

So this week, we’re going to expand our audience to welcome our animal friends and shake our tail feathers to…

I’ll bet it’s the cat’s pajamas!

“Jammin’ with Jamie” Theme: “Spring Songs”!

Hi, everyone!

Have you noticed something… different outside? Maybe you’ve noticed that you can now see the grass where there was once snow. Maybe you’ve noticed that there are more animals roaming around. Maybe you absentmindedly bundled up for sub-zero temperatures and a wicked wind chill recently, only to go outside and immediately regret your decision as you start sweating, which only gets worse as you look around and see that everyone else had the foresight to actually check the forecast before instinctively suiting up.

… That last one happened to a friend.

Now in the Midwest, particularly in the Chicagoland area, we know to never take non-extreme weather for granted, because tomorrow could bring a blizzard, thunderstorm, heat wave, or any other manner of dangerous weather, during which we’ll no doubt continue to go about our daily lives, anyway. Frankly, a real-life “sharknado” wouldn’t shake us.

So, in the spirit of enjoying the weather before it blows over––– literally––– this week, we’re going to jam to…

These breaks before the theme announcement warm my heart!

“Jammin’ with Jamie” Theme: “And the Oscar Goes to… Cinematic Songs”!

Hi, everyone!

It’s time for the fourth installment of another grand Jammin’ with Jamie tradition! This Sunday, February 22, Neil Patrick Harris will take the stage and host the 87th Academy Awards!

So we’re going to have our very own pre-Oscar party!

(Struggles to open the envelope)…

“Jammin’ with Jamie” Theme: “Sidesplitting Love Songs”!

Hi, everyone!

Today is Friday the 13th, and tomorrow is Valentine’s Day. So for some people, this year, they’ll have two days of bad luck!

Cue the rimshot!

Whether you love Valentine’s Day or hate it, you’re going to want to be jammin’ with us this week!

Get ready to laugh your heart out, as we jam to…

I love this already!

“Jammin’ with Jamie” Theme: “Songs about Fresh Starts”!

Hi, everyone!

Even though we’re more than halfway through January, it’s still a good time to remind ourselves that a new year means a new start… if we make it that way, of course!

So, to further encourage you to seize the day and claim a fresh start for yourself, this week, we’re going to continue jamming to…

All right! Let’s get started!
