Wes’s Musical Meltdown for 03/31/2018: Pre-Easter Edition, Better Late Than Never

The pre-Easter edition of the Meltdown was a great combination of secular, Christian, country, rock, and everything in between. Yes, it’s a bit late getting uploaded…That’s because your DJ has been a slacker this week. No, really, there’s a lot going on that I’m not at liberty to talk about, and it’s taken my focus.

Enjoy the cover comparison, which kind of backfired on me. With it being the night before Easter, there is a heavy dose of Christian rock, metal, and contemporary, including an ending set appropriate for both Good Friday and Easter. Of course, I brought you new country from Ashley McBryde, The Wild Feathers, Jacob Bryant, and more. We had new rock from Shinedown and Badwolves, and played a couple tracks from a Cleveland-based band several of us from the station are seeing this coming Saturday, The Rick Ray Band.

We should return to the normal music and mayhem on April 8. Yes, you’re reading the date right; since the family had Easter plans, we did this show on Saturday night. Enjoy! Tune in live every week at 7:00 PM East on Sundays. Visit XTFM for listen and chat links. Got an Amazon Alexa device?
