If you have yet to listen to the magnificent podcast Welcome to Night Vale, do yourself a favor and go check it out! It’s a fictional community radio show from the fictional desert town of Night Vale; imagine Garrison Keillor reporting from Arkham! It’s creepy and funny and frequently profound, with characters you’ll come to know and love. Many of the jokes become in-jokes, so make sure to listen from the beginning! You’ll enjoy every minute.
One of the features of the show is the weather report, which is always a song. Chances are you’ve never heard of the artists…and chances are you will immediately go look them up and download the song you just heard. Here’s a favorite: Satellite High with “The Bus Is Late (Waiting for the Bus in the Rain)” Enjoy, and ALL HAIL THE GLOW CLOUD!
