“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: “Macabre Monster Melodies (2021)”!

Hi, everyone!

Our jam session of spooky sci-fi songs that was originally scheduled to air October 9 ended up playing last Saturday, October 16, at 6 am ET/5 am CT, just before our regularly-scheduled jam session. If you’d like the recording of that jam session (or any other jam session), let me know!

This week, grab your stakes, silver, crucifixes, and any other protection you can think of, because we’re walking through the woods and heading down into the crypt for a mash-up of…

“Jammin’ with Jamie” Theme: “Dungeon Dance Ditties (2021)”!

Hi, everyone!

It’s officially October, which means we can officially creak open the coffin of creepy choruses to celebrate the spooky season!

Due to various world events and technology events, we weren’t able to have any of our traditional Halloween jam sessions last year. So, since it’s been a bit, we need to do something to shake the dust off our bones and get grooving again!

And what better way to do that than with a deluge of…

“Jammin’ with Jamie” Theme: “Dark Holiday Ditties (2019)”!

Hi, everyone!

Last week, we got into the spirit of the holiday season here on Jammin’ with Jamie!

But I understand: the holidays aren’t all constant strings of twinkling holiday lights, warm gatherings of loving families and friends, and 24/7 holiday cheer. There are things that annoy us, things that stress out and overwhelm us, and, of course, there are those grumps who will groan, growl, grunt, and grumble their way all the way through January 2.

So let’s get all those frustrations out! Once we vent, we can keep these songs in our back pockets for when things get strained this season. We’re diving deep into a den of…

“Jammin’ with Jamie” Theme: “Christmas (and Holiday) Kickoff Choruses (2019)”!

Hi, everyone!

It… is… time. For Christmas/Chanukah/Kwanzaa/St. Nicholas Day/winter/many other holidays!

But I understand: while the snow gives some people a magical feeling, it leaves others cold. And while the holiday season is a joyous time for many, it can also be overwhelming, stressful, and even isolating.

But not to worry! Jammin’ with Jamie is here for you, and we’ve brought a sack full of…

“Jammin’ with Jamie” Theme: “Haunting Halloween Harmonies (2019)”!

Hi, everyone!

Now that we’ve raised our spirits, it’s time to trick-or-treat! In the coming weeks, we’ll still be jammin’ to other spooky themes to celebrate the season, but for now, it’s time to jam to a heap 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)
