The October 20 Instrumental Invasion on WCWP was recorded from September 2 to 4: one segment on the 2nd, three on the 3rd, and two on the 4th. Pickups were recorded on the 4th and 5th.

The playlist was created on September 1 with annotations and the script draft on the 2nd.

I referred to live shows in 2016 and ’19, and to New York Comic Con in ’17. I brought up NYCC after bringing up Futurama character Hattie McDoogal after playing “Whatchacallit” by Mike Stern. That was Hattie’s original catchphrase. I like “kajigger” better. I recapped all three events on this blog:

Let’s face it: if it weren’t for The Weather Channel, I wouldn’t be into instrumentals, or meteorology, for that matter. Many songs on this show were heard during local forecasts, later known as Local on the 8s. TWCClassics.com has compiled video and audio playlists. Audio goes in alphabetical order; “the” is listed under T.

This was the second week in a row where Herbie Hancock led off the show.

“Right On Time” by Richard Elliot was a single at the time of recording, previously heard on March 24.

For the first time since last December 9, the end of the last song – “Top of the Tower” by Jay Rowe – was cut off in automation due to spot breaks running longer than 90 seconds and the first week of new underwriting. 18:40 was a safe segment duration for so long, but no more. The next six shows had to be remixed with 18:30 segments. Some segments stayed at 18:40 and others were in between.
