Wes’s Musical Meltdown: Equipment Test 06/16/2016

Today’s show wasn’t really a full-on return to the airwaves, jjust a test of new equipment and new settings. That said, it felt good to take over the XTFM airwaves for a bit, play a few songs, and test the new microphone. Enjoy!

Updates From My World: The Good, The Bad, and Everything In Between

It’s been a while since I’ve updated here…Those who follow me on Twitter and Facebook probably know a lot of this, but…As I haven’t posted to the website in a while, figured I’d give my readers an update on what’s going on with me.

For starters, I’m no longer in Springfield. I’d been out of town, visiting my girlfriend, and came home to find my place had been burglarized. I don’t want to get into a lot of details as there is still an active police investigation, but, it was enough to get me out of town. Top it off with the landlord being completely unresponsive when notified about the break-in…Sorry, but a dirtbag like that doesn’t deserve another red cent from me. That said, I did recover my laptop minus all cords/cables, and my iPad minus the charging cable. Still missing a modem, stereo, the first XM unit I ever bought, and…No joke…A case of Yuengling, one of my favorite beers out of Pennsylvania. At least the thief had decent taste in beer, I suppose. Next time, buy your own. I did. LOL

I met some wonderful people in Springfield, but the burglary was sort of the last straw. After recent events, including housemates who free-loaded off me and still owe me nearly $1300 in back rent and other incidentals, very happy to leave that town behind. Heard the ex-housemates are in Georgia now. Good riddance. Hopefully, they’ve learned their lesson and won’t cheat the next person they rent from. But, I digress…Back to Springfield…I’ll still come back to visit friends, many of whom have become like family to me…But I don’t foresee myself living in such a ghetto place again.

In happier news, I’m now in Columbus, seeing an absolutely wonderful woman. We’re keeping things mostly quiet and spending as much time together to build the relationship as possible. We click on just about every level, which is an amazing feeling. I feel like I’ve finally found my equal…A relationship that can be a true 50-50, or as close to it as possible.

At work, i’ve moved up to a new position. I had been working as a reservations agent; I’m now a team member in our rewards department and loving it. The pay is better, and the work is a bit more challenging. And hey…My worst day here is still better than most days were dealing with callers at the IRS. LOL. In all seriousness, loving the company I currently work for, and can see myself staying with them for a long time.

As many know, I’ve been off-air with regards to the radio show since March due to someone inadvertently knocking over my hard drive. Working on rebuilding the music collection bit by bit, and I’m hoping to return to the airwaves on XTFM soon.

Awaiting word from work, but if all goes well, I should be travelling to Arizona to see family and friends just bbefore Christmas. Stay tuned to this spacce and social media to learn more.

For those who don’t know, I’ve recently become a Pampered Chef Independent Consultant. Unfortunately, due to life’s constant roller coaster, I haven’t been able to do much with the business yet…But now that things are settling down, I hope to do parties, virtual or in person…And would love for any of you reading this to check out the site and purchase anything you like. You can also like the Facebook Page!

Of course, I’m still your One-Stop Shop for Amazon Products!

Hey…Had to promote the business stuff. First, I do want to grow the Pampered Chef business…And hey, everyone pretty much shops Amazon…Why not help out a friend? And yes, I do reciprocate.

In closing, though there have been some bumps in the road since moving to Ohio, there’s been a lot of good. New friends, awesome lady, great job, and the opportunity to work full-time from home. Who knows…If I play my cards right, I may very well be able to take this job and keep it and move back to Arizona in time. Life is full of possibilities.

Wes’s Musical Meltdown for 3/8/2016; Final For A While

This episode was lots of fun. I had no idea at the time that it would be my last for a while due to technical problems…Okay; former housemate knocked over my hard drive, killed it, thus killing my music collection…But, no hard feelings, right?

Unfortunately, killing of the hard drive also took out the playlist. So…Let’s call it a Mystery Meltdown. Enjoy!

Stay tuned to this space for an announcement regarding my pending return to the airwaves as I restore the music collection slowly but surely.
