Battle of the Good Day music(?) makers

Perhaps you caught Fox4's Good Daze band on a recent edition of the D-FW waker-upper.

But you probably haven't yet been exposed to rappin' weathercaster Nick ("It's so hot down here, my name is Vanilla Water") Kosir of Beaumont's Good Day, also on Fox4 in that city.

Now, together for the first time, here they are battlin' it out for the title of Texas' worst ear-sore, Good Day division. Or best of the best if you actually hear it that way.

Good Daze features traffic reporter Chip Waggoner on lead guitar and vocals, head weatherman Evan Andrews on drums and weatherwoman/street beater Fiona Gorostiza in not-so-perfect harmony with CW. Their selection is "Twist and Shout."

Kosir, who joined KBTV-TV last October, offers an original composition that includes the lyrics, "Today'll be hot, I'm talkin' mid-90s. Basically you'll be sweatin' off your hineys."

These performances may not inspire total confidence when seriously severe weather again hits the fan. But we live in times when CNN's Anderson Cooper doubles as a recurring guest co-host of Live with Regis & Kelly while NBC Nightly News anchor Brian Williams has agreed to do periodic comedy bits on NBC's The Jay Leno Show after previously hosting the network's Saturday Night Live.

In that context, we pit the pitchy Good Daze band against Beaumont's "Weather Authority." Rimshot please.
