It seems that TWC has added a new product to the LDL: Air Quality Forecast.
! No longer available


Not seeing that AQ forecast product on my Jr. I guess maybe this is exclusive to the STARs in more populous areas (that have ozone) similar to the traffic product.  :unsure:

Flipping on the weather channel this morning, I noticed the air quality report too.  I haven't seen it since before the 2013 update.

I have the AQ on my LDL. Granted, my I2Jr is located in Southern California. Difference between my area and Los Angeles is my area the air quality doesn't get all that bad.

Anyone else seeing the pollen report too? It appears right after the air quality, it's essentially the same as the air quality too.

The song info is in the description (Frank Danna - "Caribbean Moon Light"), but I looked it up and couldn't find anything. Is this person using a different alias or is this song not available commercially?  :dunno:

Is it me, or has anyone noticed striking similarities between the short lived 2008 Storm Alert Theme and "Disc Wars" by Daft Punk from the july/august 2011 playlist

Just heard "Wait a Minute" by Mark Krurnowski at 11:08 AM CT. Nice surprise. :)
When did they start to do that?

You didn't know TWC occasionally plays smooth jazz now? Well that song has been playing since March.

No, sorry. I hardly watch now. Looks like I'm way out of the loop if they've been playing since March :oops:

If that's what they're using for so called "Storm Alert" then they desperately need to give Stephen Arnold a call ASAP. They would have been better off sticking to this.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yTiBKVHSN7U

Or heck using this...
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IZ7JwdYwlK0
The music they used is OK, but it's not even on par with what they used in 2008 let alone 2005/2006. Honestly, they could have just played their normal selection of music, it's not like they have had some official form of Storm Alert music on their LFs the past 30+ years prior to 2005. Although since Hermine was the first hurricane to strike FL since 2005 was enough of a reason to use "something" anyway I guess.
