WeatherBrains 194: Wild Rants and Radio

WeatherBrains Episode 194 is now online (Oct. 12, 2009). If you are crazy about weather, this is THE netcast audio program for you!


Our guest tonight is a big time radio announcer, Don Keith. Don helps to kick off our annual rant show! Don was on the radio for 22 years in Mobile, Nashville, and WVOK radio in Birmingham. He now handles advertising and has written 21 books. He was on the air during the April 3-4, 1974, tornado outbreak.

And he helps us out with his top ten weather peevees.

And rants from all angles from the crew!

Other discussions in this weekly podcast include topics like:

  • Bill comes in from northern California

  • Earliest snow cover in Minneapolis
  • Billings coldest early October
  • 18% of US had snow cover as of the morning of October 12
  • Highest on Monday was 94 at Live Oak, FL
