Wes’s Musical Meltdown for 09/18/2016

This week’s show on XTFM was a blast. Lots of new music from Jason Aldean, Aaron Lewis, and others. We featured the new track “Forever Country”, featuring a who’s-who of country artists from yesterday and today. We also had a tribute to the 25Th anniversary of the Use Your Illusion I and II releases from Guns N’ Roses.

Next week, barring any tragedies in the music world, it’ll be a normal show. A bit of everything, and hopefully, Lots of your requests!

As a warning, the pre-show disclaimer is definitely appropriate for parts of this one. A few NSFW moments.

Wes’s Musical Meltdown for 08/14/2016: Returning After Hiatus, Breaking In New Studios

Last night was the official return of the Meltdown to XTFM after a 5-month unplanned hiatus due to hard drive failure. We’re still not 100% back musically, but it was still a good show nonetheless. It was also my first show from the new West Columbus studios. You’ll find much less echo than you’ve possibly heard since I moved to Ohio last August.

We played some great music, talked a bit about music news, politics, and other current events, and had a good time. Thanks to those who promoted, interaccted in chat, and made requests.

The new timeslot for Wes’s Musical Meltdown is Sunday Nights, 10:00 PM East. Next Sunday, we’ll have a special tribute to the late Merle Haggard. We lost this country icon on April 6, and I would’ve done this then…But, as I had no music, it had to wait until I made my return. If you have favorite Merle tracks you want played, feel free to use the various ccontact methods on the page to get in touch and let me know.

Below, you’ll find the playlist for this show as well as the download/streaming links. Enjoy!!

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.
