The Weatherman by Stephen Thayer read by George Guidall

Incongruous, unlovable, post-Vietnam:

a weatherman and a reporter make the Minnesota TV newsroom hummm. Dixie

Quinn locks into the weather and doesn’t let go. Rick Beanblossom, burn-victim,

works behind the scenes, behind his mask. Their curious, uneven characterizations

are ambushed midway by a grim, hopeless plot.

Quotes: “Y’all take care now” (The weatherman’s last words)
