Wes’s Musical Meltdown for 11/13/2016

Last night, Wes’s Musical Meltdown returned to XTFM after an unplanned hiatus due to internet issues, job ttraining, and illness. It felt good to be back. Some drops occurred, but in spite of those, I’m quite proud of this show. We had the Cover Comparison, a tribute to Seattle rock in honor of the Seahawks playing the Patriots, and lots of new music.

Wes’s Wild Weekend Party for 1/2/2015 On The VIP Lounge

This week’s Wes’s Wild Party on The VIP Lounge Radio was quite a bit of fun. A good mix of requests and my own picks. We played a new artist my listeners are quite fond of, as well as paid a brief musical tribute to a departed heavy metal legend.

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.
