“Jammin’ with Jamie” Theme: “New Beginning Beats (2022)”!

Hi, everyone!

First of all, I know a couple of shows have been skipped. What happens is I write, record, and edit my shows, and send them to a database for remote shows. Then, someone at WNUR uploads them to the station’s software to play. There have been some errors recently in that second process, which has affected many shows, including our jam sessions. So, if you hear some songs and timely references that are out of date in the coming weeks, please enjoy the flashback!

This week, we have a rare occurrence: a Jammin’ with Jamie jam session on New Year’s Day!

So let’s start the New Year right (hint hint) by ringing it in with a batch of…

“Jammin’ with Jamie” Theme: “Haunting Holiday Harmonies (2021)”!

Hi, everyone!

No matter how much you may love the holiday season, there are always certain things about the holiday season that we don’t love so much. So this week, it’s time for a jam session I get a sick and twisted sense of joy out of putting together!

Our seasonal spooky jam sessions for Halloween are gone and buried, but those haunting happenings, creepy creatures, and macabre moods and moments don’t get killed off so easily. We’ve just dug up a heap of…

“Jammin’ with Jamie” Theme: ““Haunting Halloween Harmonies (2021)”!

Hi, everyone!

All Hallow’s Eve is right around that creepy corner… are you ready?

And this time, I don’t mean “ready” as in garlic, silver, spellbooks, beakers, etc.

I mean: do you have your costume ready? Your giant bag or pillow case ready? Your route all planned out? If you do, let this ­jam session be your tunes to jive to as you trick-or-treat! If you don’t, then let us motivate you to start getting ready now with a host of…

“Jammin’ with Jamie” Theme: “Spooky Supernatural Songs (2021)”!

Hi, everyone!

About last week…

I wrote, recorded, edited, and sent the show to WNUR as usual. However, due to an error at the station, it wasn’t uploaded and, thus, didn’t air. I’m working with the higher-ups to get the show aired ASAP. Stay tuned (pun intended) to find out when

Until then, I hope you’ve studied your spell books and crystal balls, and have your broomsticks ready, because it’s time to break out our cauldrons and wands and explore all the local haunted houses––– and haunted mansions––– and conjure up the finest…

“Jammin’ with Jamie” Theme: “Labor Lyrics (2021)”!

Hi, everyone!

It’s been a bit… again!

But this time, I have an update in the “Hard Drive Saga”!

So far, two different companies have said they’re unable to extract any data from my external backup hard drive. (If you have any suggestions, please let me know!)

But, with some help, I uncovered an older hard drive that has most of my music. Not all of it, but a huge chunk of it. And so…

Jammin’ with Jamie is back!

Jammin’ with Jamie is a labor of love, and so, appropriately enough, we’re back just in time to jam to a load of…

“Jammin’ with Jamie” Theme: “Birthday Beats (2021)”!

Hi, everyone!

It’s been a bit!

I’m still engaged in the “Battle of the Hard Drives,” working to extract my years’ worth of music and videos from hard drives I’d used to back up my computer before my most recent backup failed… which, of course, was while my computer was getting repaired.

But anyway, I decided to pull whatever I could find online and patch and stitch together a brand new prerecorded show this week because… tomorrow, June 26, is my birthday!

So, as a little “birthday present to myself,” this week’s theme is…
