Jazzing Up a ‘Storm’

December 9, 2007 9:00 PM

The idea that a CD from the Weather Channel would be a top holiday seller led the folks at NPR’s “Wait Wait, Don’t Tell Me!” to speculate on records other cable channels could put out. For example, host Peter Sagal suggested CNN could put out “Larry King Hums Songs I Kinda Remember.” But seriously, “The Weather Channel Presents Smooth Jazz” hit No. 1 among contemporary jazz CDs, according to Billboard, and that success has the network considering other CD releases. Before that happens, however, Weather Channel is coming out with a DVD set featuring 25 episodes of its series “Storm Stories.” A collector’s item edition packaged in a tin also includes an episode of “Epic Conditions” in high definition.
