Entire hour of tunes mentioning weather?

Even tangentially like the first piece?

Heya Jim, Brendan and radio spuds.

Hey Jim, nice to hear your voice again! I'm Worky McWorkface right now and probably can't get back on the comments board, but I wanted to say hi :)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Wed. 5/8/19 6:07pm Hopey Sockmonkey:

Should we talk about the weather?
  🎃 Wed. 5/8/19 6:08pm Listener Robert:

Oh, of course, Jim the Poet! I keep mixing him up with Nick the Bard. I'm that bad keeping people straight, seizing on the slightest similarity of name or anything else.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Wed. 5/8/19 6:09pm Kat in Chicago:

Partly cloudy and 63 here. Was raining earlier but has cleared up a bit.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Wed. 5/8/19 6:09pm Carmichael:

Hi Jim and all

So Andy's out the first week in a very long time that Don Mclean being awful is in the news. Seems like a missed opportunity.
  Wed. 5/8/19 6:10pm Thomas:

I too am stuck at work. I am in Des Moines and the sky is in a weird state where it isn’t sure whether it wants to be cloudy or sunny.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Wed. 5/8/19 6:11pm Carmichael:

I'm sure it's really Archibald.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Wed. 5/8/19 6:12pm ultradamno:

Well, Archie is a paladin on Riverdale, so why not a prince?
  🎃 Wed. 5/8/19 6:13pm Listener Robert:

I soooo want to yell into the bedroom, "Steve, Jim the Poet's back on!", but Steve died a few months after Bronwyn and Jim went off schedule. Not saying there's a connection there, but....
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Wed. 5/8/19 6:14pm ultradamno:

Well, The X-Men have Storm, who is kind of Rain Woman.

  🎃 Wed. 5/8/19 6:17pm Listener Robert:

Notice Brendan paused to try to milk laughs from that line about things overheard from the bedroom? It's radio, Brendan, learn from Ms. Firestone.

I love this! But it really doesn’t sound like Jimmy Cliff!

  🎃 Wed. 5/8/19 6:23pm Listener Robert:

Are these guys too young for Tex Antoine? How could anyone alive then and there not answer that? Hilariously boozy.

@Jeff Yes. Jeanetta Jones defined the golden age of the weather channel.

I had a friend in high school who videotaped The Weather Channel because he thought it wasn't going to last and wanted evidence of it's existence

If you can make it in Wyoming, you will have made it in Wyoming. I think is the saying.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 5/8/19 6:55pm Linda Lee:

frankly, now that our weather is volatile *as a rule* why not call it "Who The Heck Knows Weather".
