“Jammin’ with Jamie” Theme: “Monster Melodies (Halloween 2016: Part 5)”!

Hi, everyone!

This is my one-hundredth blog entry! Woo-hoo!

As I have made clear in so many previous posts here (and on other sites), I’m a big fan of horror (and horror comedy). I have a special place in my heart for monster movies. Monster movie fans often dub ourselves, “Monster Kids.”

This week on Jammin’ with Jamie, we’re unleashing our inner Monster Kids––– or maybe, for some of you Jammers, discovering them––– with one of my personal favorite of our Halloween jam session themes…

“Listen to them… the songs of the night…”

What I’m Thankful for

Hi, everyone!

I hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving!

This is the time of year to remind ourselves of all that we’re thankful for. While I was doing just that, I figured I might as well write down my thoughts and share them with all of you!

With that, let’s get started!

Svengoolie’s “Zombie No. 5” Is WNUR’s “Track of the Day”!

Hi, everyone!

I have very exciting news! 89.3 WNUR FM ( has recently restarted our “Track of the Day” series. DJs, as well as producers and other members of WNUR’s Executive Board, submit music tracks that they believe deserve some time in the spotlight, along with a description for each track. As the name implies, a different music track is featured each weekday on the station’s website,

Today, Svengoolie’s ( parody song, “Zombie No. 5” (to the tune of “Mambo No. 5”) was chosen to be the “Track of the Day”––– and just in time for Halloween!

Here’s the link to the post: Svengoolie – “Zombie No. 5”. (The “bonus fun fact” at the end was added by Gillian Levy, another member of WNUR’s Executive Board. Thanks, Gillian!)

I’d like to give a special shout-out and huge “Thank you!” to Dave Fuentes, of the horror-themed blog, Terror from Beyond the Daves (, who uploaded the music video featured in the post, which allowed WNUR to post the track! Thank you, Dave!

If you’d like a refresher on who Svengoolie is and why you should need to watch his show on Saturday night, you can get it right here!

Spend Saturday Night with “Svengoolie”!

Hi, everyone!

I’ve been writing quite a bit about my radio show, Jammin’ with Jamie, lately, so I think it’s high time I actually, well, wrote about something else!

It’s officially Halloween season, so I’ll write about something––– or rather, someone––– often associated with Halloween. Despite this association, however, he’s around all year long, and if you ever need something to lift your spirits (pun intended) at the end of the week on a Saturday night, he’s there to help.

If you’ve had the best week of your life, he’ll make it even better. If you’ve had the worst week of your life, he’ll help you end the week on a high note. I can say both of these statements with certainty because I have experienced both. No matter what your mood may be, he’ll brighten it. You’ll find yourself smiling, laughing, and thoroughly enjoying yourself.

His name is Svengoolie. And if you haven’t seen his show, you should. Scratch that: you need to. “Who’s Svengoolie?” you ask?

This is Svengoolie! (And me.  At White Castle.)

This is Svengoolie! (And me. At White Castle.)

Tell me more about Sven!

Hi, Everyone! I’m Jamie Lee!

This is my website… and my blog!  I’ll try to keep things interesting, I promise!

What will I be writing about?  Well, pretty much anything goes. (I do promise to keep all of my own writing appropriate, though.)

I will say, though, that I have a lot of catching up to do, so don’t be surprised if you find articles about, for example, Mary Poppins, Svengoolie (, Pee-wee Herman (, Robin Williams, Riders in the Sky (, and Elvira, Mistress of the Dark ( all right in a row. (And there are plenty more where those came from!)

Also, don’t be surprised if I post a link to something I’ve previously written that has found its way online one way or another, such as one of my guest articles on the horror-themed blog, Terror from Beyond the Daves (

If I do post a link to anything, whether it’s something I wrote, something that has nothing whatsoever to do with me (other than the fact that I saw it), or something in between, I’ll make sure I write a little something to accompany it.

If I’ve piqued your interest, that’s great!

At the time of this posting, this site is still very much a work in progress.  Pictures and other sections of the site are in the works and coming soon!

With that, it’s full disclosure time.

If you’re reading this, whether you know me personally or not, I’m already incredibly grateful to you.  The fact that you decided to read something I wrote––– no matter what the subject––– is not something I take for granted.  I will do absolutely everything I can to keep our time together interesting, entertaining, and engaging for all involved.

Please feel free to leave comments with your thoughts, questions, etc., or just to say, “Hi!” and let me know you’re here!

… And this is just the beginning!  I hope you come back soon!

Thank you for reading,
Jamie Lee
