Wes’s Musical Meltdown for 08/27/2017

This week’s Meltdown was a great mix of requests, old stuff, new stuff, comedy, rock, country, and Christian. We featured new stuff from Jon Pardi, Rex Brown, Luke Bryan, and many more. Cover Comparison saw Thomas Rhett taking on Bruno Mars, and the winner may surprise you. We also discuss, but don’t subject your ears to, the new Taylor Swift single “Look What You Made Me Do”.

Join me again next week, and all our excellent DJ’s anytime, On XTFM!

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.

Join me again next Sunday night at 7:00 PM East on XTFM.

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 Test Broadcast 02/10/2017

Today’s show was supposed to be a test broadcast in advance of the return to the regular Sunday night spot at 7:00 PM East on XTFM, but wound up being a two-hour show. There was a technical hiccup which caused us to drop for a bit and have to come back, but in that, I believe we’ve found the issue. It looks to be a bad ethernet port or cable…So, doing this via WiFi. And…Hey…It worked.

Today’s show was a good mix of rock, country, and even a bit of pop. We had new music from Little Big Town, Zac Brown Band, Brett Young, Thomas Rhett, and more.
