Wes’s Musical Meltdown for 04/23/2017

This week’s edition of Wes’s Musical Meltdown definitely had some NSFW moments and lived up to the disclaimer we play at the beginning of each show. Don’t worry; most of the show is family friendly…Just that last 45 minutes or so where we went a little off-color. Good stuff though, I promise.

In addition to the usual mix of music, our cover comparison for the week featured Tim McGraw up against Aaron Lewis, performing a Chris Stapleton song. In addition, we played the first two songs to be released from Chris’s upcoming release, due out May 5. During the voting for Cover Comparison, my fiancee, Megan, made an unplanned guest appearance. I hadn’t realized she was in the room, and as I thought her comments to me on the two versions of the track were excellent, I put her on the spot and had her share them on-air. We also had a brief set in rememberance of the late J. Geils.

Due to a family get-away, there will bbe no show next Sunday night as I’m not sure I’ll have the energy/motivation to put it together once we’re back home. We’ll see you again on May 7, at 7:00 PM East on XTFM or on the podcast!

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!!
