“Anyone who says sunshine brings happiness has never danced in the rain.” Anonymous, 1964
“Rain is grace; rain is the sky condescending to the earth; without rain, there would be no life.” John Updike, 1932
“The way I see it, if you want the rainbow, you gotta put up with the rain.” Dolly Parton, 1979

I have a very special posting to share...

It is my Ultimate Rainy Day Mix.

Like many people - I love rain. I look forward to rainy days the way some people look forward to vacations. When the dark clouds gather and the muffled sound of thunder can be heard in the distance, I anxiously await the plink... drip... plink... sounds of raindrops as they begin to fall. Life slows down. The rain cleanses, refreshes, and nurtures the Earth.  We don’t get much rain in Southern California but according to my mid-Western upbringing, now is the time when “April showers bring May flowers”. When we do get some precipitation here in the O.C., it creates a moody, magical, almost spiritual feeling. It is a global experience everyone can relate to. This mix was created specifically for that rainy day.

NOTE: Something all great disc jockeys have in common is the skill to play just the right song at just the right time. The programming is in your hands now. Save this mix for a rainy day and experience how transforming it can be. If the rainy season has past already where you live, this special mix will remind you of one of those wet days. I know you’ll enjoy this. PS: Stay dry!
