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

Hi, everyone!

Halloween may be over, but here on Jammin’ with Jamie, we’ve got a killer “Halloween hangover,” and can’t quite the spooky season cold turkey. Turkey will be coming in a few weeks, anyway.

For now, let us nurse our hangover with a mix of…

So let’s get started!

“Jammin’ with Jamie” Theme: “Spooky Supernatural Songs (2019)”!

Hi, everyone!

Last week’s Scooby-Doo jam session celebrating the fiftieth anniversary of “those meddling kids” and their dog got us into the spooky spirit! The Jammin’ with Jamie Halloween celebration has begun!

And speaking of “spirits”…

It’s time to lift our spirits… and lift some actual spirits! Grab your sage and magic wands, because it’s time to conjure up a jam session full of a concoction of…

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

Hi, everyone!

Well gang, it looks like we’ve got another jam session on our hands! This kid did some meddling, and discovered that September 13, 2019 marked fifty years since the debut of a certain gang of “meddling kids” and their dog.

Jeepers! We can’t let this go by without celebrating! So with Halloween coming up, I figured I’d ask for some requests from friends and fans related to this mystery-solving team and sprinkle them throughout the spooky season. But jinkies, did you all deliver! Between all of your requests, my own personal favorites, and songs you’re pretty much obligated to play during a tribute like this, I had enough evidence to make this case open and shut: it had to be a jam session all its own. It’s no mystery that the love for these characters is just as strong as it’s always been––– in fact, clues point to it probably being even stronger!

Zoinks! Speaking of clues, if you’ve been paying attention to the clues I’ve left so far, then you’ve most likely already cracked the case of this week’s Jammin’ with Jamie theme.

But, for dramatic effect and for tradition’s sake––– and because it’s just so gosh-darn fun––– let’s theatrically unmask it!

“Let’s see what this week’s Jammin’ with Jamie theme really is!”

“Jammin’ with Jamie” Theme: “In the Moment Melodies”!

Hi, everyone!

On Jammin’ with Jamie, we often look to and motivate ourselves for the future. However, if one “lives in the future” 100% of the time, that gets exhausting, difficult, and even frustrating, as not everything works out the way you hope. And even when things do work out exactly as you hope, thinking ahead to the next “thing” will rob you of any enjoyment of what you’ve already earned and accomplished.

I’m here to entertain and inject some fun into your weekend, but I’m also here to help. So let’s enjoy our jammin’ time together with a mix of…

“Jammin’ with Jamie” Theme: “Questioning Choruses”!

Hi, everyone!

This week is a landmark Jammin’ with Jamie!

OMG (Oh My Goulash)!

Yes! We’ll be giving away two tickets to Rachel Bloom’s concert on September 21 at the Chicago Theatre, as part of her “What Am I Going to Do with My Life Now?” tour!

Yes, I’m serious, and don’t call me… oh wait, you didn’t.

By total and complete coincidence, our theme coincides perfectly with Rachel Bloom’s concert tour’s title! (I’m not even kidding: I’ve had this theme planned for a while.)

Art imitates life, imitates art, snake eats tail, equals MC squared, singularity… My brain hurts…

No question about it, we’re going to be jammin’ to…

(Begins vocal warm-ups)
