I heard this song play at least once on a now-defunct local smooth jazz station. I recently discovered it again on WeatherNation.

Jennifer Delgado got herself into some pretty big controversy with comments she made about Haiti:

The Weather Channel is apologizing after being bombarded with waves of criticism. The source of the understandable ire happens to be a meteorologist who was covering Hurricane Matthew’s then-pending destruction in the Caribbean. She somehow attributed Haiti’s deforestation to the island nation’s “hungry” children.

On Monday, TWC’s Jennifer Delgado said Hurricane Matthew’s impact on Haiti could potentially be more severe than neighbor Dominican Republic because of Haiti’s big deforestation issue. “They take all the trees down, then burn the trees. Even the kids there, they’re so hungry, they actually eat the trees,” Delgado erroneously claimed.

Delgado’s uneducated comment received tons backlash on social media, with one viewer asking Delgado when she has ever seen children in Haiti eating trees. Former Haitian Prime Minister Lamothe Laurent took to Facebook to slam the meteorologist, writing, “SHAME ON YOU!! Deeply disturbed by your reporting that Haitian children are eating trees! Where did you get that info?”

Phedra Remarais also went on Facebook and slammed Delgado, but not without giving her a quick lesson on the real reason Haiti’s trees are being chopped down. “The trees are used as a source of energy in Haiti,” Remarisis wrote on the social networking site. “They are cut and turned into charcoal for cooking and heat.” Additionally, Remarais urged The Weather Channel to find “educated and knowledgeable” employees rather than “the very ignorant” Delgado. The scathing message made its way to TWC President David Clark who offered up an apology.

“We are terribly sorry for the on air error and are taking measures to correct it, it should not have happened. The team is very concerned about people of Haiti and we will do our utmost to serve the public there in our coverage.”

Delgado, however, has yet to issue an apology.

She has apologized, per Facebook:

I want to apologize for a statement that I made yesterday that was inappropriate. My intention is always to provide relevant information to areas impacted by severe weather and I wanted to spotlight the incredibly difficult conditions that the people in Haiti continue to face, particularly in light of Hurricane Matthew. I deeply regret and apologize for any statement that I used on-air that was offensive.

Thanks, I knew it sounded familiar.

This sounds like a TWC song that I have heard before. I heard this play on the City of Tampa Channel on Saturday morning.

Thanks to uninterrupted longform (despite severe weather and tropical threat), I didn't get to hear it today at the gym.  :club:

At the gym, I heard Viaduct by Four80East (one of my favorites), and Ocean View by Pieces of a Dream. Wonderful hearing jazz on TWC again!  :dance:

Aargh, I keep missing it!  :cry3: I have to remember to keep checking here because I don't get TWC, and my only chance to hear it is at the gym! For instance, when I went to the gym on March 12, anticipating the music, I could not see any LOT8s because of longform.  <_< But it didn't matter since the smooth jazz already stopped.

General Discussion / R.I.P. David Bowie
« on: January 11, 2016, 02:28:39 AM »
Via BBC:

Singer David Bowie has died at the age of 69 following a battle with cancer.

His son confirmed the news and a statement was released on his official social media accounts.

"David Bowie died peacefully today surrounded by his family after a courageous 18-month battle with cancer," it said.

"While many of you will share in this loss, we ask that you respect the family's privacy during their time of grief."

The singer only released his latest album Blackstar on his birthday on Friday.

There had been rumours about Bowie's health for years.

His last live performance was at a New York charity concert in 2006.

Blackstar, which includes just seven songs, has been well received by critics.

Bowie's breakthrough came with 1972's The Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders From Mars.

His hits include Let's Dance, Space Oddity, Heroes, Under Pressure, Rebel, Rebel, Life on Mars and Suffragette City.

Jay-Z's Who You Wit played moments ago on Music Choice Hip Hop Classics. It samples Night Love by Jeff Lorber (Nov '01).
