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 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 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.
