Wes’s Musical Meltdown For 07/09/2017 With Guest Hostess Rebekah Weiner: A Radio Star is Born!

For this week’s edition of Wes’s Musical Meltdown on XTFM, We had an awesome guest host. My stepdaughter, Rebekah, made her hosting debut. Other than requests submitted by the listeners, she hand-picked all the music. I taught her and her mom the basics of the software, Megan helped her come up with some of her dialogue during the voice breaks…But this was indeed her show. When it was all said and done, she gave us just over four hours of great radio.

I want to thank my XTFM colleagues, and of course all the listeners, for their support. I know Rebekah had a great time, and I’m 100% sure this won’t be her last time onn-air.

Thanks also to Bekah’s friends, her grandma, and my daughter/her stepsister, Alexis, and our good friend and XTFM colleague Bob for all the requests.

Next week, I return to the airwaves at our normal time of 7:00 PM East. It’ll be an all-country show.

The following Sunday, on July 23, Megan Weiner, Bekah’s mom and my awesome fiancee, will make her hosting debut. Could this be the start of a new radio show? I guess you’ll have to stick around to find out.

Wes’s Musical Meltdown for 06/11/2017: Wonder Woman, Karaoke at Zuey’s, and More!

Tonight’s Meltdown on XTFM Was lots of fun. We had a great mix of music, the Cover Comparison, and a few in-studio guests. We had Bekah and Megan on to talk about the new Wonder Woman movie, in theaters now. And Guy from downstairs came up to check out the studios while his dad, Gary, hung out in our studio audience on the balcony. Yes, we’re moving up in the world.

There’s also a brief discussion about our Friday night at Zuey’s, and a set paying tribute to the songs we did for Karaoke.

If YOU want to be part of the studio audience, just…Be friends and/or neighbors with me, my girl, or my stepdaughter. But seriously, it was lots of fun. Some technical hiccups…Like the microphone not activating after Cover Comparison…And some background noise from the party happening outside the studio. And, have no fear. The DJ got food and drink after the show. Enjoy! We’ll be back in two weeks. Taking next week off for Fathers’ Day.

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 03/19/2017: Beauty and the Beast, Chuck Berry, and More!

Tonight’s edition of Wes’s Musical Meltdown featured a great mix of music and conversation. As usual, we were all over the map musically. We also had a discussion of the new Beauty and the Beast Live Action movie with Megan and Rebekah. Originally, the discussion was to be done over Skype, but due to technical issues, I had them both in studio! We discussed the movie, as well as the controversy surrounding it.

In addition to our Beauty and the Beast discussion, we also paid tribute to the late Chuck Berry, who passed away yesterday at the age of 90. We featured six of Chuck’s originals along with three covers.

As always, catch us live at 7:00 PM East on Sunday nights on XTFM!
