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

Hi, everyone!

After all the riveting requests I received last week from all you wonderful Jammers, I realized that we couldn’t hit the brakes on this theme (and tradition) after just one week!

So pack your bags again, Jammers, because we’re going to extend our trip with travel tunes for another week with some…

Let’s hit the road!

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

Hi, everyone!

Last weekend sure was busy! Captain America: Civil War opened in theaters Thursday night, Free Comic Book Day was on Saturday, and Mother’s Day was on Sunday!

… Now that you’re done panicking because you forgot, it’s time for us to continue another grand Jammin’ with Jamie tradition and celebrate our moms, dads, and other parental figures in one of the best ways I know how: by jammin’ to…

Why? Because I said so!

“Jammin’ with Jamie” Theme: “Heroic Harmonies”!

Hi, everyone!

It’s time for another installment of a grand Jammin’ with Jamie tradition!

In recent years, the beginning of May has meant two things:

1. Free Comic Book Day, which is this Saturday, May 7!
2. There’s a new superhero movie! This year, it’s Captain America: Civil War!

So, just like last year, it’s time once again to grab our suits, masks, and signature props and fight the good fight for fun music!

Whether you’re Team Cap, Team Iron Man, Team DC Comics, or Team “I Want to Be a Superhero and Save People, Too,” we can all unite for Jammin’ with Jamie and jam together to…

Suit up!

“Jammin’ with Jamie” Theme: “Bonus Business Beats”!

Hi, everyone!

We had so many requests during last week’s Jammin’ with Jamie jam session, I decided to extend the theme for another week!

Now that all of us have successfully filed out income taxes (hopefully), we can all really let loose and jam to…

But wait, there’s more!-

“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: “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: “Summer Songs”!

Hi, everyone!

It may not feel like it, but believe it or not, it’s almost June!

Everyone has his/her/their favorite summer activities. Unfortunately, while it is getting warmer, it’s still not quite warm enough for many of these activities.

But we all should still stock up on sunscreen, keep our shorts at the ready, and know where our towels are (in true Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy fashion!), because suddenly, it’ll be 100 degrees and humid outside!

So of course, we’re going to use this jam session to prepare for just that. Imagine how great it’ll be when you walk out all decked out in summer gear and ready for fun while everyone else is still shocked and adjusting to seeing the sun again, and all because you jammed with us to…

The suspense is heating up!

“Jammin’ with Jamie” Theme: “Mom’s Melodies and Dad’s Ditties”!

Hi, everyone!

This Sunday is Mother’s Day!

… For those of you who had forgotten, you’re welcome for reminding you while you still have time to make it look like you hadn’t forgotten. That’s yet another advantage to being a loyal Jammer with us on Jammin’ with Jamie: you never forget a holiday!

So, in another grand Jammin’ with Jamie tradition, this Saturday, we’re going to pay tribute to our mothers––– and fathers!––– and jam to…

You shouldn’t leave people hanging like that!

“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: “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!
