Weatherscan music

Around 2001, I remember staying up all night listening to the unique music played on Weatherscan, a constant 24/7 loop of local radars, weather forcasts and other features, owned and opperated by the Weather Channel. From such a young age I could recognize good music when I heard it, starting with the most common tracks played on that station composed and performed by a man known as Trammell Starks. Around 2003, the Weather Channel introduced a new playlist of songs not composed by Trammell, although some of his songs were still used. Along with these new tracks came new graphics. Since 2007, one of my first projects was compiling a list of all the music played on Weatherscan. I began recording from my television and editing out vocal narrations and equalizing the volume. This was fairly successful but at this time I knew I didn't have all the music, and from that point until around 2012, I periodically searched the internet for videos and prerecorded weatherscan tracks I could use to edit out the songs I didn't have, or that didn't have the vocal narrations. Thus far I have collected what I would consider to be the most complete list of music played on Weatherscan to date. The table to the right has every song played (minus music by Trammell Starks) since 2003 to 2012.

For the complete history of Weatherscan, go here. Or, you can head over to TWC Today for more information and weather channel related forums. Until now, each of the following 40 tracks had cutouts during most of the songs because I had to take out vocal narrations. However, I have stumbled across all of these vocally narrated tracks with absolutely no narrations and are now available for your listening enjoyment, and in much higher quality! I do not officially know who produced this music but I'm fairly certain the artist is Jack Mascari. If you've got any questions or a song that I've missed please let me know. The following tracks are 320K, mono, with only a few exceptions that are in stereo.

Music for local forecast 3 cd set by Trammell Starks

Before the music currently being featured on Weatherscan and sometimes on the Local on the Eights, the Weather Channel used several selections from a 3 disk set of jazz performed by a guy named Trammell Starks. His music can be identified by the bright pianos and sax on many of his tracks. Much of his work can be found on YouTube, or you are able to purchase all 3 CD's from Trammell directly. If you'd like to contact him, check out his site as he does much more than compose music for the Weather Channel.
