“Jammin’ with Jamie” Theme: “Politically-Adjacent Pieces”!

Hi, everyone!

There’s been a lot of grassroots political action lately. People who are generally not politically active have been spurred to action.

We’ve done this a couple times before, and I’ve “elected” to do it again!

So whether you’re marching in this year’s Pride Parade, giving a speech, or calling your representatives to voice your opinion, we’re here to give you the perfect background music with a party––– pun intended––– of…

Cast your vote!

“Jammin’ with Jamie” Theme: “Superhero Songs (2017)”!

Hi, everyone!

I’m putting out a call for another grand Jammin’ with Jamie tradition!

But first, I’ve been doing musical improv at The iO Theater in Chicago in the group Charge Me Up!

Here’s our show from May 8, when the audience suggestion was, “Wedgie!”

Here’s our show from May 15, when the audience suggestion was, “Snowboard!”

And here’s a playlist of all the musical improv shows I’ve been in at The iO Theater so far!

Jammers… ASSEMBLE!

“Jammin’ with Jamie” Theme: “Mother’s Day Melodies (2017)”!

Hi, everyone!

It’s time for another annual Jammin’ with Jamie tradition!

This Sunday is Mother’s Day!

… Now that you’re done panicking because you forgot, let me help you out!

1. Jam with us on Jammin’ with Jamie this Saturday at 7 am ET/6 am CT.
2. Ask me for the recording afterwards.
3. Instant gift for your mother or mother figure!

So with that, let’s roll into our annual mix of…

Call your mother/mother figure!

“Jammin’ with Jamie” Theme: “Halfway to Halloween (2017)”!

Due to technical issues, this Jammin’ with Jamie will happen Saturday, May 6!

Hi, everyone!

It’s time for another annual Jammin’ with Jamie tradition… that started last year.

But it was a ton of freaky fun, so we’re doing it again!

You’ve heard of Christmas in July, now get ready for an early celebration of another holiday!

Six months from now, we’ll be having a ghoulishly good time celebrating, so let’s start now with a haunted house of harmonies reminding us that we’re…

Clear away those cobwebs to reveal…

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

Hi, everyone!

So how are you doing on those taxes, fellow Jammers?

Whether you’re panicking because you’re filing late or breathing a deep sigh of relief because you finished before the deadline, relax and have fun with us on this week’s Jammin’ with Jamie!

Yes, we’re filing this annual Jammin’ with Jamie tradition a tad late this year, but unlike filing income taxes late, there’s no penalty for having a tax-themed jam session late… I think.

Either way, you don’t need to file any paperwork to reap the benefits of…

Cha-ching!

“Jammin’ with Jamie” Theme: “Easter Egg Hunt Harmonies”!

Hi, everyone!

I did another musical improv show at iO in Chicago in the group “Charge Me Up”! Check out our performance!

I’m putting my improv shows in a playlist on my YouTube channel, which you can check out here:

It’s no secret that Jammin’ with Jamie loves to celebrate holidays! As has become a tradition for our jam sessions, we’ll be going on a hunt for a heap of…

Grab your baskets!

“Jammin’ with Jamie” Theme: “Duped Ditties”!

Hi, everyone!

I just did a musical improv show at iO in Chicago as part of the group “Charge Me Up”! Check out our performance!

We have another show Monday, April 10, at 10:30 pm! Want to come? Get tickets here!

April Fools might be over, but we’re going to keep celebrating on Jammin’ with Jamie, and that’s no joke!

No kidding: it’s time to jam to a deck of…

No foolin’!

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

Hi, everyone!

Thank you all so much, Jammers, for tuning in for and participating in Elliott Serrano’s and my conversation about Pee-wee’s Big Holiday to celebrate the film’s one-year anniversary! Elliott and I had a wonderful and fun conversation…

… that has been immortalized on YouTube!

If you’re a Jammin’ with Jamie Jammer, it’s safe to say that you’re anything but typical… just like me!

But bands of misfits make the best music! And we’re going to prove that once and for all by jammin’ to a mix of…

Weirdos unite!

“Jammin’ with Jamie” Theme: “‘Pee-wee’s Big Holiday’ Anniversary Celebration (with Special Guest Elliott Serrano)”!

Hi, everyone!

On March 18, 2016, Pee-wee’s Big Holiday, starring Pee-wee Herman, debuted on Netflix. That makes this Saturday the film’s one-year anniversary!

In honor of Pee-wee’s Big Holiday’s big anniversary, here’s a picture of my foil ball! It’s been growing since February 19, 2015, and now has 100 pieces of foil!

So… “Let’s see how big my foil ball is today!”

Pee-wee Herman: “It’s THIS tall!”

Given how much I talked about the film before its release… years before its release… how big of a Pee-wee Herman fan I am in general (Exibit A! Exibit B! Exibit C!), and the fact that Pee-wee’s Big Holiday’s anniversary falls on a Saturday, I just can’t pass up the opportunity to celebrate!

So why don’t you join us this week for our grand…

“Why don’t YOU?!”

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

Hi, everyone!

It’s March, which means a major upheaval in weather. In the Midwest in particular, it means a mix of heat, snow, wind, rain, rainbows, and more.

So pack your raincoat, winter boots, sunscreen, and all your other weather-braving supplies for this whirlwind jam session, because this week, the forecast calls for…

“Here’s your ‘Local on the 8s’!”
