My weekly radio show, Jammin’ with Jamie, is back! Tune in to 89.3 WNUR FM over the air in the Chicagoland area, or from anywhere in the world at WNUR.org, every Saturday morning from 6:00 to 7:00 am and “jam” with us!
What are we “jammin’” to? Many of the songs we “jam” to are from movies and TV shows––– including TV show theme songs––– with a sprinkling of songs from stage shows. However, many of the songs are not from the big or small screen or the stage, and I am always open to any and all requests! (Provided they’re clean enough to get a thumbs up from the FCC.)
Each week’s “jam session” has a different theme, which is almost always related to a current or upcoming season, holiday, or other event. Income taxes, elections, movie releases, and even Chicago’s crazy weather have all inspired themes for our weekly jam sessions! Every so often, there will just be too much music to jam to in the single hour we have together, so the theme––– and the fun––– will be “continued” during the following week’s jam session.
One thing’s for sure, though: you never know what we’re going to jam to when you join our jam session, but it will always be a lot of fun!
I also always enjoy interacting with listeners and taking requests! So, if you have a request, dedication, question, comment, idea for a future theme for the show, or just want to say, “Hi,” please call in (preferably during the show) at (847) 866-WNUR. You can also chat live with me online at WNUR.org (once again, preferably during the show). You can even leave a comment anytime on any of my posts here, but if it’s a request, I unfortunately cannot guarantee that I’ll necessarily see it in time to put it into the show that week.
If, for whatever reason, I am unable to play your request during that week’s jam session, I will do absolutely everything in my power to find it so we can jam to it right at the top of the show the next week! Also, please make sure you give me your name (or your favorite nickname) so I can give you a shout-out on the air!
By the way, your requests do not have to coincide in any way with that week’s theme. If we’re jammin’ away to winter/holiday songs and you want to jam to “Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious,” then gosh darn it, you contact me and request “Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious”!
If I know the next week’s theme before I sign off for the week, I’ll announce it at the end of the show and post it here later. If I figure it out later, I’ll still post it here!
Since October of 2011, “Jammers” have been jammin’ to great tunes almost every week. I hope you consider becoming a fellow Jammer by jammin’ with us! Maybe we’ll jam to some of your long-forgotten favorite songs or artists; maybe you’ll discover some new ones. In any case, you’ll be singing and even dancing along with us in no time!
Thank you for reading, listening, and jammin’,
