A couple weeks ago I referenced the guest DJ show The Jam Cellar did for Yehoodi Radio a couple of years ago. In addition to 10 of our
only best DJ’s contributing their favorite songs to play at the Jam Cellar, the executive producer, Jesse Miner encouraged us to be as creative as possible with the program.
We didn’t need that much prodding. Since a number of the Jam Cellar crew at the time were pretty musical, we decided to write and record our own theme song for the show. Here it is in two parts.
The Opening Theme
For those of you who want to sing along at home here are the lyircs as written by Luke Albao and Naomi Uyama.
