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

Hi, everyone!

Two weeks ago, we jammed to a slew of sunny summer songs to ring in the season!

But with the heat of summer on full blast, it can be easy to just start complaining about the sun and humidity and forget that the warmth is only temporary. In just a couple of months, we’ll all be digging our heavy coats out of the back of the closet!

Although many people have a favorite season, each season has its perks and its drawbacks. So this week, we’re going to celebrate every season with a super set of…

‘Tis the season for jammin’!

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

Hi, everyone!

It’s time for our first-ever Fourth of July-themed Jammin’ with Jamie jam session!

Before you head out to your local parade, carnival, barbecue, or other event, join us on Jammin’ with Jamie as we jam to…

Time for fireworks!

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

Hi, everyone!

As we discussed last month, now that spring is here, we’re seeing a lot more animals again!

Also, Disney’s newest animated film, Zootopia, opened in theaters last month (If you haven’t seen it, you really should!) and Disney’s live action remake of The Jungle Book opens next week!

Some people complain about animals. I don’t see the point in that. Humans share the Earth with all sorts of amazing creatures, so why not embrace it?

Start brushing up on your animal impressions, because this week, we’re jammin’ to…

The suspense is driving me WILD!

“Jammin’ with Jamie” Theme: “Songs of Friendship: Redux!”

Hi, everyone!

Thank you again to all of you to stayed with us so patiently as we worked through unexpected technical difficulties last week.

To make up for lost time, I decided to not only carry over the songs we had to skip over last week for the sake of time, but also the whole theme, giving us…

Let’s do this! … Again!

“Jammin’ with Jamie” Theme: “Songs of Friendship!”

Hi, everyone!

Oftentimes, it can seem like there’s just too much emphasis on romantic relationships.

So, after our annual Jammin’ with Jamie Valentine’s Day shows, I like to turn the attention to something that I don’t think gets celebrated nearly enough…

Then let’s celebrate!

“Jammin’ with Jamie” Theme: “Sidesplitting Serenades (Part 2)!”

Hi, everyone!

Valentine’s Day may be over, but we’re still celebrating on Jammin’ with Jamie in our own unique way!

Our last jam session was met with some great reactions, proving once more that no matter what your feelings are about Valentine’s Day, hilarious music unites us all!

After our previous jam session was such a hit, now I’m even more excited for us to continue jammin’ to…

It’s love at first listen!

“Jammin’ with Jamie” Theme: “Rousing Refrains!”

Hi, everyone!

At this time of year, it seems like a lot of people start to lose their spirits. The novelty of the new year has worn off and they start giving up on their resolutions. The holiday season has ended, but the cold weather and limited daylight remain.

Well, one thing I love to do on Jammin’ with Jamie is motivate you!

In fact, one of the best ways to get motivated is to have a song in your head, so with that in mind, let’s jam to…

“I’m pumped! Let’s go!”

“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!
