“Jammin’ with Jamie” Theme: “New Beginning Beats (2022)”!

Hi, everyone!

First of all, I know a couple of shows have been skipped. What happens is I write, record, and edit my shows, and send them to a database for remote shows. Then, someone at WNUR uploads them to the station’s software to play. There have been some errors recently in that second process, which has affected many shows, including our jam sessions. So, if you hear some songs and timely references that are out of date in the coming weeks, please enjoy the flashback!

This week, we have a rare occurrence: a Jammin’ with Jamie jam session on New Year’s Day!

So let’s start the New Year right (hint hint) by ringing it in with a batch of…

“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: “Birthday Beats (2021)”!

Hi, everyone!

It’s been a bit!

I’m still engaged in the “Battle of the Hard Drives,” working to extract my years’ worth of music and videos from hard drives I’d used to back up my computer before my most recent backup failed… which, of course, was while my computer was getting repaired.

But anyway, I decided to pull whatever I could find online and patch and stitch together a brand new prerecorded show this week because… tomorrow, June 26, is my birthday!

So, as a little “birthday present to myself,” this week’s theme is…

“Jammin’ with Jamie”: Mike Zara Interview!

Hi, everyone!

It’s been a bit! Here’s the situation…

For the safety of its DJs, 89.3 WNUR FM is operating on a very limited basis for the foreseeable future. For Jammin’ with Jamie, this means our shows will have to be remote and prerecorded.

Some of you know that my computer was in and out of repairs for months, requiring me to work from various backup hard drives. Then, one of those hard drives very suddenly failed before I was able to update my other backups. Trying to restore my library of music and videos has been a daunting, painstaking task, and I’m not out of the woods on it yet.

When we do resume our more musical jam sessions, I will do what I can to announce themes in advance so everyone can get their requests in beforehand.

But, in the meantime, we can still jam!

This week, we’re featuring another Jammin’ with Jamie interview, with…

“Jammin’ with Jamie” Theme: “Seasonal Celebration Songs (2019)”!

Hi, everyone!

There are so many holidays still happening, and so many sales in the stores, so why cut things short? We’re done with the preparation: let’s celebrate with a sleigh full 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…
