Wes’s Musical Meltdown for 09/03/2017: Labor Day Weekend Edition

This week’s Meltdown was the typical mix of genres. In addition to our usual mix of rock, country, Christian, pop, and whatever else the listeners request, we paid tribute to the late Walter Becker with a six-pack of Steely Dan. Hey, it’s just about as good as a six-pack of Yuengling, right?

Also, we brought you a new band, Falling Into Red. Check them out on Facebook and Twitter. Their two singles were well-received by the DJ’s and listeners alike, and Amy from the band paid us a visit in the chat room. You will definitely be hearing more of this band from our other DJ’s, as well as in the automated rotation on XTFM.

In addition to bringing you some relatively new talent, we also had new material from Delbert McClinton, The Steel Woods, and newly discovered Stoney LaRue. We closed out the night with a brief commentary, thanks to something Gina said in the chat room, on the Building 429 song “Where I Belong”.

Cover Comparison saw Garth Brooks going up against All That Remains. The results may surprise you; they sure surprised me.

Wes’s Musical Meltdown for 08/20/2017: Music, talk about Movies, And More!

Tonight on the Meltdown, we had a good variety of music and topical discussion. Unfortunately, I’ve not been able to reincorporate Skype, but this will happen once I buy a USB headset or other external sound card. You can always join us in the chat room found on the XTFM Website.

We took a listen to Ryan Follese and The Cadillac Three from their pre-country days. We also heard new music from Ray Wylie Hubbard, The Josh Abbott Band, and Lindsay Ell. There was a comedy set, some Christian rock/contemporary, and much more.

Mixed in with requests, new music, and the cover comparison, we also discussed some movies I saw this weekend, as well as people who think they are the thought/humor/social media police. That may inspire its own blog post later. For now, kick back, and enjoy this week’s edition of the Musical Meltdown.

Wes’s Musical Meltdown for 07/23/2017: Megan Weiner Makes Her Hosting Debut

Tonight on the Meltdown, Megan Weiner made her hosting debut. She’s been a guest on my show a few times, but this week, we decided to turn the reins over to her and let her try her hand at radio. It was excellent. other than a few technical glitches that happen to even the most seasoned broadcasters, the show was a huge success.

Join Megan and Rebekah as they team up starting Tuesday August 1 at 7:00 PM East for their New weekly XTFM show! The show is still in need of a name, but that will come in time.

Also, I highly recommend checking out Megan’s website and Blog About Life with Hashimoto’s.

Wes’s Musical Meltdown for 07/18/2017: Country Edition

This week’s Meltdown took place on Tuesday instead of Sunday due to some medical problems. Things are looking much better now, and I thank my audience for their understanding when life happens.

This week, the focus was on country music. Commercial, alternative, Americana, classic, new…Country in all its forms. The hardest part about a genre-specific show is that there’s so much great stuff. Naturally, some artists will be missed when trying to keep up that balance of giving the audience the radio country they’re used to, and throwing in some stuff that you maybe haven’t heard before. That said, the all-country shows may become a peeriodic thing on The Meltdown.

This Sunday on XTFM, Megan Weiner will be making her hosting debut in my slot. I want to thank the listeners for all of the positive feedback on Rebekah’s show from last week. Let’s show Megan the same love. Depending on how it goes, who knows what the future may hold for the mother-daughter duo of Megan and Rebekah. Will they bbe occasional fill-ins for the Meltdown? Will they team up for a show? Only they know the answers.

Enjoy this trip through the country music spectrum. I return to the air on July 30 with a regular, anything goes Meltdown.

Thanks to Rebekah for the suggestion for this week’s Cover Comparison.

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 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 04/02/2017: Replay of Alexis’s Show from 07/24/2014

What’s the old saying, “Better late than Never.”? And so it goes with this week’s edition of The Meltdown.

Due to another commitment, the show was not live this past week. We replayed my daughter Alexis’s show from July 24, 2014 in honor of this past Sunday being her 12Th birthday. Happy birthday, Kiddo…

Sorry; no paylist in front of me this time. It’s one of the many files lost in the hard drive crash of 2016. But, enjoy this mix of pop, rock, country…And the musings of a then 9-year-old.

I return to the airwaves this Sunday night at 7:00 PM East provided I’ve sufficiently kicked this cold from my system. Join me on XTFM, or find X Transmission FM on The TuneIn Radio or OoTunes apps for your mobile device of choice!

Wes’s Musical Meltdown for 03/05/2017: The Birthday Edition

Tonight’s edition of the Meltdown wound up being a themed edition. Originally, I was going to have Megan and Rebekah on to discuss the Lee Brice/Justin Moore concert we were going to attend on March 4. Unfortunately, Justin Moore was hit with an illness, and the show has been rescheduled. So, we will go to the concert on April 19. They will appear on the show on April 23.

For tonight’s musical entertainment, as my birthday is today and Megan’s is coming up on Thursday, I featured our years of birth. We played songs that were released and/or charted in 1978 and 1980. Enjoy this trip down memory lane!
