Hundreds Of Musos Join Drumming Weatherman To Reprise Iconic BBC Theme Tune

As reported on B&T last Friday, a British weather reporter went viral after he finished his report with a drum solo rendition of the iconic BBC outro tune.

The heart-warming video of Owain Wyn Evans smashing away on his home kit became such a global smash it racked-up over five million social media views and had musicians everywhere joining in with him.

Now the weatherman has started Owain’s Big House Band to raise money for CV-19 pandemic. After putting the call out on social media, Wyn Evans was inundated with over 500 budding musicians sending clips of themselves playing along to the famous theme tune.

Entries included everything from a barbershop quartet harmonising the ‘pips,’ to one woman even attempting to tap dance to the rhythm. Check out the fun below:

Commenting on his project, Wyn Evans said: “It’s absolutely brilliant and I’m so pleased that so many people have wanted to jump on board with my Big House Band.

“We’ve had so many fabulous entries and have made a video of some of them which is another bit of fun really.

“Like so many other people I have been working from home since early March and doing my weather bulletins from my garden or dining room, sometimes with the help of my cat.

“I thought it would be a bit of fun to put a bit of a weather forecast in front of a rocked up drum track to the BBC News theme… and it’s gone bonkers darlings! I had no idea it would be such a hit,” he said.

Even the original composer of the track, David Lowe, added his support: “I am totally thrilled with all the attention it is getting. It’s wonderful how it’s inspired so many people. I have been a BBC fan all my life, so this has been an amazing experience.”
