“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…

Hi, everyone!

On Saturday, November 2, Jammin’ with Jamie celebrated its landmark 200th show on 89.3 WNUR FM!

Since this show’s so special (and because there’s no copyrighted music in it), I posted it on my YouTube channel, along with bonus content.

So let’s get started!

“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)

“Jammin’ with Jamie” Theme: “Travel Tunes (2019)”!

Hi, everyone!

Last time, we were all about the destination. This week, we’re all about the journey (but still with some tourist stops along the way)!

So whether you’re on the road, on a bike, or on foot, grab your nearest music-playing device and get ready to groove as you move on down the road with a trunk full of…

Come See “The Complete Works of William Shakespeare (abridged)”!

Hi, everyone!

I’m an actor, writer, singer, director, DJ, and so many other things. I’ve also produced films. However, I’ve never produced a play.

… Until now.

I’ve long loved the show The Complete Works of William Shakespeare (abridged). So, in January, I started pursuing putting on an independent production of it.

Long story short: one Indiegogo campaign and many rehearsals at strange times later, we’re here! We have one show left at Terminus Theatre on July 19! From there… who knows?

Between July 5 and July 6, our audience nearly doubled. We’ve had audience members who’ve seen other productions who made sure to tell us how much they love ours. Get tickets in advance on Eventbrite to guarantee yourself a seat; otherwise, any remaining tickets will be available at the door.

 

“Oh, I am slain!” … And so are our audiences!

Come see us!

And may the Bard be with you!

Thank you for reading,
Jamie Lee
