Wes’s Musical Meltdown for 03/26/2017 with Guest Megan Weiner

Tonight’s show, as always, was lots of fun and, I hope, entertaining for the listeners.

We paid tribute to late Boston drummer Sib Hashian. We brought you the new Tim and Faith single. We played requests…And, we went back to the year 2005. I brought Megan on again as both of our daughters have birthday’s coming up in April. The discussion and music were both lots of fun.

There will not be a live show next week; if all goes as planned, XTFM will re-broadcast a show my daughter did for us from July 24, 2014. Next Sunday is her birthday, and I have a commitment that will not allow me to be back in time for the show…So, to celebrate, we’ll replay the Alexis Edition of the Meltdown, and it will go up as next week’s podcast.

Wes’s Musical Meltdown for 03/19/2017: Beauty and the Beast, Chuck Berry, and More!

Tonight’s edition of Wes’s Musical Meltdown featured a great mix of music and conversation. As usual, we were all over the map musically. We also had a discussion of the new Beauty and the Beast Live Action movie with Megan and Rebekah. Originally, the discussion was to be done over Skype, but due to technical issues, I had them both in studio! We discussed the movie, as well as the controversy surrounding it.

In addition to our Beauty and the Beast discussion, we also paid tribute to the late Chuck Berry, who passed away yesterday at the age of 90. We featured six of Chuck’s originals along with three covers.

As always, catch us live at 7:00 PM East on Sunday nights on XTFM!

This week’s edition of the Meltdown, as always, was lots of fun. Plenty of good music, a cover comparison, and the return of the Request Page! Of course, there is a reason we play the disclaimer at the beginning. Most of the show was cclean, but there a couple NSFW moments here.

We had a great mix of music from the 60’s through today. We also brought you new stuff from Reba McEntire, Midland, Josh Turner, and much more. The cover Comparison pitted Faith No More up against The Commodores.

Wes’s Musical Meltdown for 03/05/2017: The Birthday Edition

Tonight’s edition of the Meltdown wound up being a themed edition. Originally, I was going to have Megan and Rebekah on to discuss the Lee Brice/Justin Moore concert we were going to attend on March 4. Unfortunately, Justin Moore was hit with an illness, and the show has been rescheduled. So, we will go to the concert on April 19. They will appear on the show on April 23.

For tonight’s musical entertainment, as my birthday is today and Megan’s is coming up on Thursday, I featured our years of birth. We played songs that were released and/or charted in 1978 and 1980. Enjoy this trip down memory lane!
