“Jammin’ with Jamie” Theme: “Halfway to Halloween Harmonies (2022)”!

Hi, everyone!

I have so many monstrous melodies that last year, I filled six weeks of Jammin’ with Jamie with songs celebrating the spooky season… and I still had some left over that never made it to air!

With all these beats that go bump in the night bubbling for that long, they’re going to boil over this week as we jam to a host of…

“Jammin’ with Jamie” Theme: “Language Lyrics (2022)”!

Hi, everyone!

Language is an odd thing. You can use it to be direct. But you can also use it for metaphors, for puns and plays-on-words, or just to be extremely and intricately long-winded.

We love and frequently feature fun with words from both songs and our host (ahem) on Jammin’ with Jamie, but this week, it’ll be in the spotlight, as we take a metaphorical walk through a load of…

“Jammin’ with Jamie” Theme: “Haunting Halloween Hangover Harmonies (2021)”!

Hi, everyone!

Let’s be honest: our pumpkins are still holding strong, the leaves are still folding, and the monsters, ghosts, and other freaky fiends haven’t crawled back into the crypt yet! So why end the season just because of the silly calendar when clearly, it wants to be resurrected and live on? And hey, this way, while other people are revving up their holiday cheer, we can still be cheery by holding on to the spooky season!

So this week, let’s purge some of the excess spookiness with a stream of…

“Jammin’ with Jamie” Theme: ““Haunting Halloween Harmonies (2021)”!

Hi, everyone!

All Hallow’s Eve is right around that creepy corner… are you ready?

And this time, I don’t mean “ready” as in garlic, silver, spellbooks, beakers, etc.

I mean: do you have your costume ready? Your giant bag or pillow case ready? Your route all planned out? If you do, let this ­jam session be your tunes to jive to as you trick-or-treat! If you don’t, then let us motivate you to start getting ready now with a host of…

“Jammin’ with Jamie” Theme: “Macabre Monster Melodies (2021)”!

Hi, everyone!

Our jam session of spooky sci-fi songs that was originally scheduled to air October 9 ended up playing last Saturday, October 16, at 6 am ET/5 am CT, just before our regularly-scheduled jam session. If you’d like the recording of that jam session (or any other jam session), let me know!

This week, grab your stakes, silver, crucifixes, and any other protection you can think of, because we’re walking through the woods and heading down into the crypt for a mash-up of…

“Jammin’ with Jamie” Theme: “Spooky Supernatural Songs (2021)”!

Hi, everyone!

About last week…

I wrote, recorded, edited, and sent the show to WNUR as usual. However, due to an error at the station, it wasn’t uploaded and, thus, didn’t air. I’m working with the higher-ups to get the show aired ASAP. Stay tuned (pun intended) to find out when

Until then, I hope you’ve studied your spell books and crystal balls, and have your broomsticks ready, because it’s time to break out our cauldrons and wands and explore all the local haunted houses––– and haunted mansions––– and conjure up the finest…

“Jammin’ with Jamie” Theme: “Dungeon Dance Ditties (2021)”!

Hi, everyone!

It’s officially October, which means we can officially creak open the coffin of creepy choruses to celebrate the spooky season!

Due to various world events and technology events, we weren’t able to have any of our traditional Halloween jam sessions last year. So, since it’s been a bit, we need to do something to shake the dust off our bones and get grooving again!

And what better way to do that than with a deluge of…

“Jammin’ with Jamie” Theme: “Back to School Beats (2021)”!

Hi, everyone!

This time of year, so many students are headed back to the classroom, whether in person, virtually, or in a hybrid model.

It’s tough to return to pretty much anything after a break, especially with how chaotic things are right now with all sorts of things being cancelled, rescheduled, converted to virtual, or just left up in the air until further notice.

So, to help everyone with the transition, let’s study up to prepare ourselves with a backpack full of…

“Jammin’ with Jamie” Theme: “Sidesplitting Serenades (2020) (Part 2)”!
