    Good music, would be great if winter versions had all winter video…

  2. Terry Kowalski March 21, 2017 at 7:36 pm

    Very nice! Definitely a campaign that can appeal to both a large and small market audiences.

  3. Eric March 21, 2017 at 6:12 pm

    Very Nice!

  4. Dominic Gauna March 21, 2017 at 5:47 pm

    I don’t believe that Tim Boknecht is weather ready.

  5. David Shearer March 21, 2017 at 5:47 pm

    What can I say? You guys always do great work.

  6. Alan Balzer March 21, 2017 at 3:57 pm

    Right On! Really really good material.

  7. Scott Warder March 21, 2017 at 3:53 pm

    Nice Work!

  8. Dave White March 21, 2017 at 2:28 pm

    It’ cute and catchy, like some of the bigger market promos that are feeling good about the weather and news people. I would not work for our station image, we’re about severe weather danger and storm tracking.

  9. Rob Mock March 21, 2017 at 2:28 pm

    Nice work, great mix! I need that guitar because I live where it rains and snows, but I work in a triple digit desert…

  10. Gene Kirkconnell March 21, 2017 at 1:57 pm

    Your usual on-target, catchy stuff. Nice!

  11. Lisa March 21, 2017 at 1:55 pm

    Peppy & catchy! That guitar would be great for our rainy season here in Florida!

  12. wnctmarcmorriston March 21, 2017 at 1:35 pm

    Noice! Great job as usual team SAM!

  13. Dave Shelly March 21, 2017 at 1:03 pm

  16. Jim Moore March 21, 2017 at 10:49 am

    Frets wet? No sweat. While you’re seeking shelter I’ll be jamming helter skelter.

  17. Chris Gross March 20, 2017 at 3:14 pm

    Nice job, it holds with you.

    Nice work as usual SAM. Great for a Spring wx campaign.

    • Chad March 20, 2017 at 11:42 am

      Pete – there is a fall/winter spot version as well. Also, we plan to create a breaking weather POP instrumental cut that incorporates the 5 note melody of the main song.

  23. Adam Bradley March 14, 2017 at 1:08 pm

    Sounds great! Forwarded on to our Creative Services Director!

  24. Mike March 14, 2017 at 12:21 pm

    Blustery and cold here, but the song helps warm it up!

  25. Jean Guimond March 14, 2017 at 11:39 am

    Love the song! It has a « feel good » to it. Here in Montréal, it’s snowing hard, so I will have your song in my head all day!

  26. Sharon Gillis March 14, 2017 at 11:04 am

    Great production value!

  27. Coby Cooper March 13, 2017 at 10:11 am

  38. David Dabler March 9, 2017 at 8:07 pm

    I like that it high energy, yet warm and fuzzy.

  39. Patrick Tonkinson March 9, 2017 at 4:56 pm

    Pop/Country works almost anywhere…

  40. Sam Day March 9, 2017 at 4:56 pm

    Very nice 🙂

  41. Brent Ayres March 9, 2017 at 4:35 pm

    Nice tracks!

  42. Hutch Johnson March 9, 2017 at 4:07 pm

    Being weather ready is a good idea! Nice spot AND as a guitar playing meteorologist, I would love to win a Weather Ready Guitar! 🙂

  43. Paul Harper March 9, 2017 at 3:58 pm

    Nice work, team Stephen! Class and quality all the way as usual.

  46. Chris golden March 9, 2017 at 3:34 pm

    I love this! Nice job!

  47. Melisse Marks March 9, 2017 at 3:31 pm

    The song will easily become an earworm!

  48. Noah Kozinko March 9, 2017 at 3:19 pm

    It’s happy. Maybe too happy for South Louisiana.

    • Chad March 20, 2017 at 11:50 am

      I understand – South Louisiana can have some extreme weather! The song can be about showcasing your weather talent and how viewers can connect to your station’s weather information via various multi-platform devices and apps. Weather information is a daily part of a viewer’s routine – in addition to those severe weather days.

  49. Joey Kinsley March 9, 2017 at 3:18 pm

    Very clever! \m/ \m/

  50. Tim Boknecht March 9, 2017 at 3:16 pm

    This sort of turnkey campaign is a really smart idea. Also, I’ll take that guitar in a lefty, please.

  51. Wendy Bernier March 9, 2017 at 2:50 pm

    Very Nice indeed.

  52. Mark Hodges March 9, 2017 at 2:44 pm

    That’s pretty catchy, SAM!

  53. Tim Ott March 9, 2017 at 2:42 pm

    Clever song, nicely done.

    Love it! You guys are on fire!

  55. David Reeve March 9, 2017 at 2:36 pm

    Love the song. I’ll be singing it all day now. Thank you very much for ear bug.

  56. Mike Kommersmith March 9, 2017 at 2:30 pm

    Excellent, catchy tune! When I grow up, I want to be Stephen

  57. Michael Turner March 9, 2017 at 2:23 pm

    Nice work! Catchy lyrics with a good beat. Stephen Arnold Music does it again!

  58. Rigby Wilson March 9, 2017 at 2:21 pm

    Good song that fits in well with weather promotion

  59. Roger Ingram March 9, 2017 at 2:19 pm

    A nice little campaign, with a good hook. Great job.

  60. kjpinto March 9, 2017 at 2:18 pm

    We don’t have a contract with you yet – but I’d love to do an image campaign with that song!! How can we make that happen. Love how the song accompanied imagery that could work in any market.

  61. Allan Snyder March 9, 2017 at 11:52 am

    Love the folks at SAM, and love this song! See you in Vegas!

  62. Eric VanWinkle March 8, 2017 at 11:45 am

    Catchy tune and great hook. Nice work as usual!

  63. William Schutz March 8, 2017 at 10:24 am

    Very well put together and catchy too!!! Good work guys!!!

  65. John Corbitt March 7, 2017 at 5:56 pm

  66. Qinglong Diep March 7, 2017 at 3:27 pm

    Great campaign, love the song!

  67. George Edelmann March 7, 2017 at 2:43 pm

    Great campaign, upbeat and flexible….nice job!!!

  68. Chuck Spruill March 7, 2017 at 11:03 am

    As always, nice job…great vocals and visuals.

  69. Eric Wotila March 7, 2017 at 10:00 am

    Love it! Our viewers need to know that “This is the Place” to be Weather Ready! 😉

  70. Evan Mcalister March 7, 2017 at 9:51 am

    Nice positive song for the morning weather reports – no more severe weather doom and gloom to scare you awake

  73. B C Cox March 6, 2017 at 3:25 pm

    Weather Ready is ratings steady!

  74. Chris Pruitt March 6, 2017 at 1:02 pm

    We will be launching a new product soon. This would work great.

  75. Mike Bush March 4, 2017 at 3:11 pm

    Very catchy and fun song.

  76. jason ruel March 3, 2017 at 5:43 pm

    I love the concept. More friendly and inviting than the doom and gloom of most weather spots.

  77. James March 3, 2017 at 3:49 pm

    Catchy! I’m ready…

  78. Sydney Rubin March 3, 2017 at 12:26 pm

    Do you have a version for “raining all day, ‘er day?”

  79. gabriel lerma March 3, 2017 at 11:49 am


  80. Matt Earl March 3, 2017 at 10:56 am

    Catchy campaign!

  81. Regina March 3, 2017 at 10:23 am

    Whether the weather weathers you or not this is a great song (prefer the 2nd mix).

  88. James Showers March 2, 2017 at 3:55 pm

    That’s a pretty nice spot. I may have to check my budget for it.

  89. Kelly Tibbit March 2, 2017 at 3:44 pm

    Fun, upbeat way to promote! Catchy tune.

  90. Kirk Szesny March 2, 2017 at 3:41 pm

  91. Dave Medley March 2, 2017 at 3:38 pm

    Great song that would fit with all kinds of brand positioning!

  92. Scott Spence March 2, 2017 at 3:32 pm

    Looks great. Really like the shot of the cute girl under the umbrella it drives home the family feeling.

  93. Jeff Laundergan March 2, 2017 at 3:21 pm

    Nice beat. Nice feel. “I’m Weather Ready” is a memorable line.

  94. ramiro saucedo March 2, 2017 at 3:15 pm

    Great foot tapping contagious melody!

    Very cool Song and Spot!

  97. John Rice March 2, 2017 at 3:00 pm

    Nice work. Might have to do some lyrics rewriting for it to make sense here in Alaska. Even in Southeast…98 in the shade doesn’t happen. At least not yet…

  98. Cameron Smith March 2, 2017 at 3:00 pm

    I like the use of syncopation and polyphonic lines, Keep up the good stuff!

    It’s catchy…love all the outdoor weather shots…and showcasing how viewers actually get weather forecasts (ie: on mobiles, computers, tablets, etc.)

  103. Kent kay March 2, 2017 at 2:47 pm

    Doesn’t really fit our demo…. but I like the song 🙂

  104. Adam DePaul March 2, 2017 at 2:41 pm

    Looks like a great way to produce a super-slick weather image promo! Another reason Stephen Arnold Music is my favorite music library.

  105. Thomas Ovacek March 2, 2017 at 2:36 pm

    It’s cute & poppy. I like it.

  106. Wade March 2, 2017 at 2:34 pm

  107. Brian "Bbeesky" Bledsoe March 2, 2017 at 2:33 pm
