“Jammin’ with Jamie” Theme: “Election Lyrics”!

Hi, everyone!

If you’ve been exposed to any sort of news outlet in the past few months, you’re well aware that this is an election year.

Elections, especially high-profile ones, are, by nature, divisive. Passionate people on any side of any issue clash like never before with people on another side. Sometimes, there are intelligent, respectful debates of viewpoints in which both sides are listening and open to greater understanding.

… Other times, there aren’t.

With all the insanity, we all need a chance to some together for a special brand of insanity we can all support… Jammin’ with Jamie! No matter where you fall on the political spectrum, this Saturday, you’ll want to be on our team, as we jam to…

All in favor, say, “Aye!”

“Jammin’ with Jamie” Theme: “Songs to Put a ‘Spring’ in Your Step”!

Hi, everyone!

Believe it or not, spring is starting soon! This may particularly surprise Midwesterners, who had such a mild winter.

Nevertheless, spring will soon be upon us, and I want all my fellow Jammin’ with Jamie Jammers out there to be ready to greet it with a smile… and a song!

So, with that in mind, this jam session will present a bouquet of…

But I have allergies!

“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: “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: “Tongue-Twisting Tunes”!

Hi, everyone!

This week, we have a brand new, never-before-heard theme on Jammin’ with Jamie––– a theme that I’ve wanted to do for a long time!

If you’ve jammed with us before, you know that I always encourage all of my fellow Jammers (That’s you!) to sing and dance along with us as we jam to terrific tunes.

Well this week, we’re going to put your enunciation to the test, we jam to…

Bring it on!

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

Hi, everyone!

So many Jammin’ with Jamie traditions, so little time! And time is money!

Which reminds me… to remind you that income taxes are due April 15.

… I’ll wait until you’ve stopped hyperventilating…

Welcome back!

This week, as you fill out all those forms and crunch all those numbers––– or as you put them off just a little longer––– turn us on and jam with us to…

I hit the jackpot!

“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: “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!
