“Jammin’ with Jamie” Theme: “Motivational Melodies (2019)”!

Hi, everyone!

Remember those New Year’s Resolutions you made? Or maybe the ones you made last year? Yeah, whatever happened to those?

Maybe you’re still chipping away at yours, in which case, congratulations! Or maybe you’ve fallen away from working towards your goal.

You longtime loyal Jammin’ with Jamie Jammers know this well, but for those of you who are new, here’s a little something about me: I’m pretty big on motivating you all to go for your dreams and do your best. And I work as hard and as often as I can to do the same in my own life.

But I know as well as anyone that it can be very difficult to get and stay motivated and to have confidence in yourself, your abilities, and that your efforts can and will pay off in some way. Sure, you can give yourself pep talks all you want, but you can start to wonder if you’re just being delusional.

But don’t despair! It’s all about taking one step at a time. And it’s much easier to take those steps if you’re feeling good. So, whether you’re trying to trick yourself into taking a chance or just wanting to laugh a little more as you confidently stride onward and upward, join us as we jam to a mix of…

“Jammin’ with Jamie” Theme: “Cold Weather Choruses”!

Hi, everyone!

This time of year is a weird time for weather. It’s technically still winter, and yet, people are looking ahead to spring. And if you’re in the Chicagoland area, it’s downright confusing. One day brings torrential rain, the next brings howling wind, and the next brings torrential snow.

The clingy cold weather may be irritating for some, but remember: warm weather is just around the corner! Until then, let’s do what we can to enjoy what’s left of winter with an avalanche of…

No need to pack anything: just bring your singing voice and your senses of humor and adventure as we head out toward the horizon with a trunk full of trailblazing…

Let’s head out!
