Look out folks — Mike uttered the topic of Weather Channel music on his blog…and well, this brought me out of the woodwork. LOL. I do think the Christmas music is hilarious because of the lack of wintry temperatures here (it only got slightly chillier today, and the Seattle-like rain will be with us for a while yet).
Some of you may or may not know that I have in the last year and a half become a serious Weather Channel music addict. Thanks to the diligent work of Matt & Chazz at TWC Classics, I’ve been able to identify and thus purchase my favorite TWC music from when I was growing up and from now. When I get the full site up, I fully intend on having a full list of the music that I’ve acquired, including the three-disc signed CD set by Trammell Starks (used heavily in the late ’90s and on the Weatherscan channel). I like a lot of the music from the early ’90s, when I was seriously obsessed with TWC as a kid. Nowadays my favorite TWC artists include Ryan Farish and Brian Hughes.
By the way, the jazzy version of Joy To The World Mike refers to is a version that’s been played for the last several years by Bob Rafkin — here’s the Holiday 2002 playlist for proof. ;)
