“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…

Post-Valentine’s Day, we have another beloved (by me) Jammin’ with Jamie tradition!

This week, since we recently dragged ourselves through a holiday that celebrates romantic love, we’re going to celebrate a different sort of love and relationship that’s not celebrated as much, but is just as important!

Grab a buddy, as we jam to a flock of…

“Jammin’ with Jamie” Theme: “Arthur Anthems”!

Hi, everyone!

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…

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

Hi, everyone!

Now that we’re all caught up on the Jammin’ with Jamie jam sessions that tech issues delayed and put out of order, we can forge ahead!

… And there might be a little more literal “forging” than usual, because depending on where you are, you might be covered in snow and ice!

This is the perfect time to bundle up and embrace the fun (yes, fun) that the weather can bring us this time of year with a bluster of…

“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…
