This week, the longest-running children’s animated show, Arthur, concluded its 25th and final season. If you’ve been jammin’ with us for a while, you’ve jammed to several songs from and based on the show. I always hear great feedback from you, my fellow Jammers, when you hear songs you haven’t heard in forever, or songs you’ve never heard from characters you’ve known forever!
Longtime loyal Jammin’ with Jamie Jammers know that I’ve loved Arthur my whole life. In fact, when the show celebrated its 20th anniversary, I was chosen by the production team to make a video talking about what Arthur means to me, which I was more than excited to do!
I recently attended a virtual Q&A with Arthur author and creator Marc Brown and executive producer Carol Greenwald… and they answered my question (at 41:45)!
So, given all of this, it should be no surprise that we’re going to celebrate and pay tribute to this landmark phenomenon with an avalanche of…
… “Arthur Anthems”!
This week, we’ll be jammin’ to a wonderful kind of jam session!
The tunes we’ll be jammin’ to this week come courtesy of artists such as Ziggy Marley, Art Garfunkel, The Backstreet Boys, and U Stink! Certain selections come from TV shows such as… well, Arthur! Songs from episodes, specials, albums, and more! Check out the categories and tags below for more!
I hope you consider jammin’ with us this Saturday at 7 am ET/6 am CT on 89.3 WNUR FM! If you like what you hear, let me know: I record every show and will happily send it to you! For more information about Jammin’ with Jamie, go here!
Thank you for reading, listening, and “jammin’,”
