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 April 9, 2017: Requests, New Country, and 90’s Alternative

On this week’s edition of the Meltdown, it got interesting. To start out, I was getting over a cold, so…Didn’t sound my best. On top of it, it was the start of the full moon, which often seems to affect people’s moods. I may have gotten a little irritated at a couple situations, and let that come through during a voice break. For that, I apologize in advance. Just know that issues were resolved, and all is well in the XTFM family.

Once we got past all that, the show was a fun one. Lots of new country, a flashback to the 90’s for some lost alternative tracks, a brief tribute to the late Layne Staley, and lots of requests. Cover Comparison this week put Material Issue up against Stereo Fuse.

There will be no show, and therefore, no podcast next Sunday due to the Easter holiday. I’m taking the day off as I don’t know when we’ll return from whatever Easter events we may be attending. I return to XTFM on April 23 at 7:00 PM East. Of course, sometime before that, the request page will be up so you, the faithful listeners, can get your requests in early and often!

As a warning, this episode does have quite a bit of adult content/language.
