“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: “Marvelous Motivational Melodies (2022)”!

Hi, everyone!

We’ve all had times when we’ve decided to pursue a new goal, forge a new path, or just leave something that’s not making us happy, not helping us, or holding us back. Some people use New Year’s resolutions, the start of a new month, the start of a new season, their birthdays, or any other sort of momentous milestone as a symbolic “starting line” for turning the page.

But you don’t need any sort of special occasion to start writing a new chapter in our lives. But, if you need a jam session, you’re in luck, because we’re about to jam to a magnificent mix of…

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: “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…
