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!
Here’s Jammin’ with Jamie’s 200th show, as it aired on WNUR. This version includes photos of me in the studio hosting the 200th show, videos of the shout-outs from Too Slim of Riders in the Sky and Svengoolie and Kerwyn, and photos of my interview with Dean J. Griffiths!
Too Slim of Riders in the Sky was kind enough to film this shout-out after a concert at the Woodstock Opera House on September 15, 2018. A friend of mine was introduced to Riders in the Sky’s music through Jammin’ with Jamie, attended the concert, asked him for the shout-out, and sent it to me as a surprise! Thank you, Too Slim, and thank you to my friend!
Longtime loyal Jammin’ with Jamie Jammer and fellow DJ Chris Hamby recorded this shout-out specifically for Jammin’ with Jamie’s 200th show and sent pictures related to his own radio show, which I inserted over the audio. Thank you, Chris, for your consistent support of Jammin’ with Jamie, along with all of my other pursuits, for jammin’ with us, and for recording this!
Here’s my full conversation and interview with Dean J. Griffiths, my friend, costar, coworker, colleague, collaborator, and many other things that start with “co-,” making his Jammin’ with Jamie debut just in time for our 200th show! (Like any good actor, he knows how to make an entrance!) Since we were both cast in Young Frankenstein (he as Igor and I as Elizabeth, which you can see clips of here), we’ve ended up working together in many capacities, such as Six Flags Great America’s Fright Fest, Calendar Girls, Six Flags Great America’s Holiday in the Park, and The Complete Works of William Shakespeare (abridged)! In the time since we’ve met, we have more memories, inside jokes, and ideas than we could fit even in our full conversation. Thank you, Dean, and thank you to The Open Mic Coffee and Tea House for hosting our recording session!
Svengoolie was kind enough to film this shout-out specifically for Jammin’ with Jamie’s 200th show in his dungeon… and with a cameo by Kerwyn, no less! I’ve watched Svengoolie since 2009, interviewed him more than once, and even interned for him. Thank you, Mr. Goolie (and Kerwyn)!
Thank you to all of you who jam with us, whether you’ve been with us since before we were even called Jammin’ with Jamie or are just discovering our weekly jam sessions for the first time! For those of you who sent comments, even those of you who tweeted during the show, I read as many as I could on the air.
This show’s been a significant and consistent part of my life through a lot of life events: the highest highs, the lowest lows, and everything in between, leading to many opportunities and allowing me a creative outlet and catharsis. Here’s to more Jammin’ with Jamie jam sessions!
Thank you for reading, listening, and “jammin’,”
