Wes’s Musical Meltdown Semi-Angry Edition: 11/30/2015 On The VIP Lounge

An excellent final test run for The VIP Lounge Radio this afternoon. The show starts in its regular slot on the station on Saturday, 4:00 PM US Eastern. Of course, don’t miss me in my new, earlier time slot on Tuesdays, starting at 9:00 PM East on XTFM.

Many close to me know about the events that transpired this past week on Thanksgiving, and the ensuing crap continuing to be dealt with. In honor of that, the opening set is…A little angry. As a warning, this show is definitely not for the younger listeners…Or the easily offended. At least, not the first 20 minutes or so. That said, I had a blast. A good number of requests, lots of listener interaction. So, enjoy.

Wes’s Musical Meltdown for 11/23/2015: Test Transmission On The VIP Lounge

Today was my inaugural broadcast on The VIP Lounge Radio. First, thanks to Ian Francis for giving me this opportunity to expand the reach of Wes’s Musical Meltdown, and an opportunity to hopefully help other aspiring broadcasters. Secondly, thanks to my XTFM crew for tuning in and showing support. Know that The VIP Lounge is an additional station, not a replacement station for my main radio home. I’m happy to be with both stations, but XTFM is my first priority, hands-down.

We got off to a rough start, and started a bit late, but still got the full show in. I did not do a cover comparison, but soon, I will introduce that feature to this version of the show.

Thanks to all who tuned in, requested, and interacted. If you want to catch me on XTFM,,tune in Tuesday nights at 10:00 PM Eastern time. For The VIP Lounge Radio, I’ll be on at 4:00 PM Eastern time on Saturdays.

Wes’s Musical Meltdown with Co-Host DJ Faithful: 11/17/2015

This week’s Musical Meltdown saw the addition of a new co-host to the rotation, DJ Faithful. DJ Faithful is a fellow XTFM DJ, as wwell as a DJ at another internet station. We’ve known each other and have been friends for years, but this was our first opportunity to work together on a show, and I guarantee it won’t be our last.

We discussed several topics of the day, and played lots of great music. Lots of requests on this show, which I love, because it makes my life easier. Remember, you can make requests before and during the shows.

Amongst the excellent music, we featured three tracks from singer-songwriter, and good friend, Bridgette Koteles. If you want to hear and buy her music, Visit her Soundclick Page.

Also, one of our other regulars in the co-hosting rotation, Megan, has started a new business, which we plugged on the show. Check out her Jamberry Page and Buy some product.

Of course, we reminded the listeners about The Request-A-Thon for Shelly. There’s still plenty of time to donate, and to get your requests in for it!

As always, if you like what you hear, don’t forget, you can find most of the music, and anything else you might want, on Amazon

Wes’s Musical Meltdown for 11/03/2015: Show Recap and Download

The November 3, 2015 show was a fun one. Just over three hours; lots of music, and interesting topics. Unfortunately, technology decided to be uncooperative and eat the playlist. However, I’m confident you’ll enjoy the mix of classic country, Christian Contemporary, rock, and even some 80’s Alternative on this week’s show.

Megan served again as co-host, and discussed her involvement with a company called Jamberry. Want to know more? Listen to the show, then get in touch.

We also discussed the failure of Issue 3, Marijuana Legalization, here in OOhio, where the show is currently based. I discussed ways they could possibly have more success on next year’s ballot.

As always, if you enjoy what you hear, Make an Amazon Purchase to Help Me Out. It’s greatly appreciated.
