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!

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!!
