Wes’s Musical Meltdown for 08/13/2017

This week on the Meltdown, it was lots of music, and not a lot of talk. We did address the situation in Charlottesville through song and a bit of conversaation…I was tired, but I think the playlist made up for it.

The Cover Comparison went country, putting Lee Ann Womack up against her friend and sometimes collaborator Buddy Miller. Stay tuned to find out which version of the song won.

In addition, we had lots of new music from Third Day, Kesha, Hinder, Lindsay Ell, and more.

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!!
