“Jammin’ with Jamie” Theme: “Songs of Friendship!”

Hi, everyone!

Oftentimes, it can seem like there’s just too much emphasis on romantic relationships.

So, after our annual Jammin’ with Jamie Valentine’s Day shows, I like to turn the attention to something that I don’t think gets celebrated nearly enough…

Then let’s celebrate!

“Jammin’ with Jamie” Theme: “Jamie’s Favorite Jams (Part 2)”!

Hi, everyone!

Our final Jammin’ with Jamie jam session is this Saturday, June 13, from 6:00 to 9:00 am!

Well… here we are.

From the instant I found out I was going to be on the air for the first time in October 2011––– before the show was even called Jammin’ with Jamie––– I knew the show would have an end date.

I expected the end date to be “as soon as someone other than my parents heard my voice on an audio-only medium.”

I had to re-apply for my slot three times a year, so for a while, there was also the possibility that someone else would get the slot.

But at this point, I’m moving on to a new chapter in my life. I’m filled with that trademark mix of excitement and worry that comes every time you embark on a new start––– something I always encourage you Jammers to do on my show, making sure I always give you the proper motivational melodies to get stuck in your head and give you that extra push when you need it.

I want to assure all of you: the last time I sign off of Jammin’ with Jamie isn’t the last you’ll hear from me. In fact, it’s just the beginning. Make sure you keep checking this website, my Twitter, and my YouTube account, and we can keep up with each other’s adventures together!

So with that, I give you our final Jammin’ with Jamie jam session theme. Are you ready?

Let’s jam!

“Jammin’ with Jamie” Theme: “Travel Tunes”!

Hi, everyone!

Jammin’ with Jamie will be two hours this week! We’ll be jammin’ from 6:00 to 8:00 am!

In case you missed my announcement last week, after four amazing years, Jammin’ with Jamie is, unfortunately, coming to an end. Including this week, we have three precious jam sessions left together.

Our final Jammin’ with Jamie jam session will be Saturday, June 13.

As for this week’s theme…

For students and everyone else involved in education, the school year is coming to an end, if it hasn’t already. It’s the time when everyone scatters to go home, go on vacation, move someplace new, or even just explore a different part of town.

Whether you know where you’re headed this summer or not, jam with us as we go on a musical road trip through a set of…

Where are you going with this?

“Jammin’ with Jamie” Theme: “Animal Melodies”!

Hi, everyone!

Even though it may not feel like it, it is indeed officially spring!

Spring is one of those times when it seems like everything gets the chance to start new––– trees’ leaves grow back, flowers start blooming again, and animals are running around outside again, many with new families!

So this week, we’re going to expand our audience to welcome our animal friends and shake our tail feathers to…

I’ll bet it’s the cat’s pajamas!

“Jammin’ with Jamie” Theme: “Tongue-Twisting Tunes”!

Hi, everyone!

This week, we have a brand new, never-before-heard theme on Jammin’ with Jamie––– a theme that I’ve wanted to do for a long time!

If you’ve jammed with us before, you know that I always encourage all of my fellow Jammers (That’s you!) to sing and dance along with us as we jam to terrific tunes.

Well this week, we’re going to put your enunciation to the test, we jam to…

Bring it on!

“Jammin’ with Jamie” Theme: “Friendship Tunes”!

Hi, everyone!

For the third week, we’ll have another installment of another grand Jammin’ with Jamie tradition!

… Hey, do anything almost every week for four years. I dare you not to have traditions.

At any rate, two weeks ago, we jammed to a mix of hilarious, gut-busting love songs! No matter what your feelings about Valentine’s Day, we all had a lot of fun with these songs!

Still, I’m fully aware that the very thought of Valentine’s Day makes some people’s stomachs turn. So, I decided to counterbalance the “hilarious love song” jam session with a jam session celebrating a different kind of love.

Grab a buddy––– or, if you’re alone, keep one or more of your buddies in mind––– as we gather and jam to…

Friends don’t leave friends hanging!

“Jammin’ with Jamie” Theme: “New Year, New Beginnings”!

Hi, everyone!

That’s right: Jammin’ with Jamie is back from winter hiatus, and we’re all set to start jammin’ again to some fun tunes you can sing and dance to!

It’s a brand new year, which means it’s a great time to wipe the slate clean and start something new or rededicate yourself to something you love.

Of course, starting something new or diving back into something you’ve been away from for a while can take some motivation.

Well, that’s what we’re here for! Come in from the cold weather, curl up by your radio, computer, and/or mobile device, and join us as we embark on a new adventure with…

“Huzzah and tally ho! We’re off and here we go”!

“Jammin’ with Jamie” Theme: “Motivational Melodies”!

Hi, everyone!

Everyone needs a little pick-me-up every now and then. Everyone needs a little motivation, a voice saying, “You can do it!”

This seems especially true at certain times of the year––– for example, this time. Students are back in school, summer has ended for everyone (in this hemisphere, anyway), and there often seems to just be a sort of dip in people’s spirits in this transitional time between summer and the avalanche of holidays ahead, starting, of course, with Halloween!

But we’ll get to that soon! For now, we need some…

What?

“Jammin’ with Jamie” Theme: “New Adventures”!

Hi, everyone!

For most students, this time of year means the start of summer vacation, but even if you long ago closed your last textbook, we’re all still heading into summer! Summer seems to have a way of revitalizing people and inspiring them to embark on new endeavors with new energy. Well, who am I to argue with that?!

So, in the words of a certain new Broadway musical, “Here I Go”… or rather, here we go…
