Wes’s Musical Meltdown 11/05/2017: XTFM 6Th Anniversary And More!

This week on Wes’s Musical Meltdown, it was a celebration of XTFM’s sixth anniversary. We had plenty of new music from Theory of a Deadman, Adelitas Way, Kid Rock, Cole Swindell, Blake Shelton, and mmore.

This week’s Meltdown was mostly family-friendly, with the exception of a couple songs during the comedy set. We took lots of requests, had a great time in chat, and had a 3-way Cover Comparison. We also took a few minutes to pay our respects to the late Chris Skkarstad a.k.a. Toonhead.

The Meltdown is on hiatus next week as I go in for some medical testing, but we’ll return to the XTFM airwaves on Sunday November 19 at 7:00 PM East.

Wes’s Musical Meltdown for 12/29/2015: The Year In Music!

The final Meltdown of 2015 on XTFM was a 7-and-a-half-hour marathon, boasting 106 of the songs that rocked our musical world in 2015. It was country, rock, metal, pop, hip-hop, Christian Contemporary, and even one awful song that took the country by storm in the form of a dance craze. Hoping you all enjoy this one. Feel free to leave your comments about the show, the playlist, or songs I should have added or even skipped.

It was an excellent year in music, in which we discovered many new bands, and old favorites returned with their first new material in several years. We even got to showccase a track from a new artist. Hey, I heard about him on Christmas, so it still qualifies for my best of 2015. Everyone needs to check out Dean Ray and watch for this guy to break out in a huge way in 2016. Thanks to several of HIS fans for joining the program and interacting last night.

Don’t forget to join me Saturdays at 1:00 PM East on The VIP Lounge. You can find us on the TuneIn Radio app by searching The VIP Lounge as well. We return to our normal time of 9:00 PM East next Tuesday, January 5, on XTFM.

Of course, if you enjoy what you read and hear, and if you’d like to make some Amazon purchases through me, it’s greatly appreciated.
