“Jammin’ with Jamie” Theme: “Cathartic Choruses (2022)”!

Hi, everyone!

Many of us are in the middle of a long heat wave, we’re in that weird awkward time between summer and fall where summer activities are winding down, but fall activities haven’t officially started yet, and we’re stuck in the in-between. Maybe you’re feeling lonely. Maybe you’re feeling frustrated, exasperated, angry… or just down.

Bottling it up isn’t healthy, so don’t worry, we’re going to jam to a cavalcade of…

“Jammin’ with Jamie” Theme: “Curious Choruses (2022)”!

Hi, everyone!

I wondered for a while what to make the theme for this week. We’re in the middle of summer, but the “big” summer holidays have ended, and many of us are already planning for what’s coming up in the fall or beyond. What we do now is up to us… so what to do?

Maybe you’re waiting for something. Maybe you’re working toward something. Maybe you took a risk. Maybe you’re going for something that is, in one way or another, a big question mark.

Then I realized… the question is the answer!

Hear me out on this.

Wonder no longer, as we jam to a cavalcade of…

“Jammin’ with Jamie” Theme: “Fourth of July Follies (2022)”!

Hi, everyone!

Last week was another holiday, so we’re going to celebrate it!

If you are in or near Highland Park, Illinois, or know someone who is, we extend our heartfelt condolences and well wishes. We’re going to be sensitive to that on this week’s show. If you’d rather listen to it later on your own time, that’s okay. I can get you connected to the archive where recordings are stored.

Let’s light it up (safely!) and let the sparks fly from a flock of…

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

Hi, everyone!

It’s my birthday! … Give or take.

WNUR has been having scheduling issues, making scheduling specific shows for specific days difficult. They’re working on it, and we DJs are doing our best to make sure you get the shows you love every day! Thank you for your patience and listening loyalty!

So, I gathered a mish-mash of melodies that I love and that all of you love to mix together for a batch of…

“Jammin’ with Jamie” Theme: “Travel Tunes (2022)”!

Hi, everyone!

As the weather warms up in this hemisphere, this is generally the time of year when people get restless. Whether you’re off of school or work, your work is lighter in these warmer months, or you do more during the summer, but it’s something you enjoy, this is when many people start to fantasize about venturing outside. Maybe you sit outside for some fresh air, or maybe you yearn for a more substantial trip outside.

But many of us still can’t travel, whether because of the pandemic, cost, time, or some combination of the three.

So, whether you’re vacationing for real or vicariously, let’s hit the road with a suitcase full of…
