TWC intro
« on: September 28, 2014, 06:53:31 PM »
Hello everyone I'm new to the site and just want to say this is amazing. I'm a huge old school TWC fan and to me the best years were 1991-1995. I was a young teen and with all the storms that hit the northeast coast where I live TWC was always on. Twc was on as background most of the time. 
I'm here with a question. I would love to have the TWC intro heard here (the first one that plays but with out narration)http://youtu.be/1CX5GRbqo7Q I would like to use it on my phone. Is it possible someone has it and I can dl and save it?  I sure do miss the old TWC and the great music played on the Local on the 8's. Even just seeing weather.  Can't sleep nothing else on TWC was best bet. Shame. I really don't watch anymore and have t for years and finding this forum made me see that I was not alone. And thank you to Twcclassics.com I go back and be nostalgic anytime. Thanks for your help

Welcome to the forum!  I started watching The Weather Channel in the late 1980s, and, like you, I really miss the days when TWC actually broadcast weather all the time.  There certainly was something comforting about it, wasn't there?

Breaks in regular weather programing were extremely rare, but these special documentaries were almost always of very high quality.  I remember Marshall Seese hosting "Force Four" about Hurricane Hugo - that was a wonderful documentary and I enjoyed watching it the few times I got to see it.

Sorry, but to the best of my knowledge, that song is not available. It was custom made for TWC. I haven't even been able to confirm the composer, but it could be Impact Music (based on the credits of some of the documentaries).
