Wes’s Musical Meltdown for 12/01/2015: Show Recap, Playlist, and Download

December 2015 begins with a new Wes’s Musical Meltdown, with co-hostess Silvia! She wasn’t with us for the entire program, but did make it for most of it. The show ran just under four hours, and was packed with requests and conversation. The topic of long-distance relationships was discussed…And, naturally, due to recent circumstances, someone felt it necessary to put your Meltdown host on the spot. Thanks…Paybacks come in many forms, my friends. ­čśë

Of course, we had the cover comparison mmixed in with the requests and randomness. As always, if you like what you hear, and if you shop Amazon, Shop My Amazon Page. Cyber Monday deals continue all week long!

Wes’s Musical Meltdown Semi-Angry Edition: 11/30/2015 On The VIP Lounge

An excellent final test run for The VIP Lounge Radio this afternoon. The show starts in its regular slot on the station on Saturday, 4:00 PM US Eastern. Of course, don’t miss me in my new, earlier time slot on Tuesdays, starting at 9:00 PM East on XTFM.

Many close to me know about the events that transpired this past week on Thanksgiving, and the ensuing crap continuing to be dealt with. In honor of that, the opening set is…A little angry. As a warning, this show is definitely not for the younger listeners…Or the easily offended. At least, not the first 20 minutes or so. That said, I had a blast. A good number of requests, lots of listener interaction. So, enjoy.

Wes’s Musical Meltdown for 11/23/2015: Test Transmission On The VIP Lounge

Today was my inaugural broadcast on The VIP Lounge Radio. First, thanks to Ian Francis for giving me this opportunity to expand the reach of Wes’s Musical Meltdown, and an opportunity to hopefully help other aspiring broadcasters. Secondly, thanks to my XTFM crew for tuning in and showing support. Know that The VIP Lounge is an additional station, not a replacement station for my main radio home. I’m happy to be with both stations, but XTFM is my first priority, hands-down.

We got off to a rough start, and started a bit late, but still got the full show in. I did not do a cover comparison, but soon, I will introduce that feature to this version of the show.

Thanks to all who tuned in, requested, and interacted. If you want to catch me on XTFM,,tune in Tuesday nights at 10:00 PM Eastern time. For The VIP Lounge Radio, I’ll be on at 4:00 PM Eastern time on Saturdays.

Of course, if you like what you here, and wish to help support my page, Feel Free to shop my Amazon.com Page.

Wes’s Musical Meltdown with Co-Host DJ Faithful: 11/17/2015

This week’s Musical Meltdown saw the addition of a new co-host to the rotation, DJ Faithful. DJ Faithful is a fellow XTFM DJ, as wwell as a DJ at another internet station. We’ve known each other and have been friends for years, but this was our first opportunity to work together on a show, and I guarantee it won’t be our last.

We discussed several topics of the day, and played lots of great music. Lots of requests on this show, which I love, because it makes my life easier. Remember, you can make requests before and during the shows.

Amongst the excellent music, we featured three tracks from singer-songwriter, and good friend, Bridgette Koteles. If you want to hear and buy her music, Visit her Soundclick Page.

Also, one of our other regulars in the co-hosting rotation, Megan, has started a new business, which we plugged on the show. Check out her Jamberry Page and Buy some product.

Of course, we reminded the listeners about The Request-A-Thon for Shelly. There’s still plenty of time to donate, and to get your requests in for it!

As always, if you like what you hear, don’t forget, you can find most of the music, and anything else you might want, on Amazon

Wes’s Musical Meltdown Presents A Request-A-Thon For Shelly’s Vision: Give, Request, and Listen

Wes’s Musical Meltdown and the rest of the XTFM staff are proud to host and present The Request-A-Thon For Shelly Gage. Join us for the live broadcast on Saturday, December 12, starting at 12:00 PM Eastern, and running for as long as the requests take to play through. Read on to find out how this works, and how you can start getting involved now.

Some of you may be asking yourselves “Who is Shelly, and why is The Meltdown raising money for her?” Those questions will be answered in this article. However, if you’d like to hear a bit more about/from Shelly herself, Check out our October 13 Broadcast.

The short version is this. At the age of 13, Shelly went blind due to Diabetic Retinopathy. Thanks to the wonders of modern medical science, Shelly has an opportunity to have some sight restored through a safe, but non-FDA-approved, procedure involving Adipose stem cells taken from her own body and re-implanted into/around her eyes. Her reason for doing this is simple. She was on her way to a promising figure skating career when she went blind. She’d like to be able to return to the ice and safely maneuver, even if full sight is not restored.

A breakdown of all costs involved is listed on her donation site along with everything you may want to know about the ccause and the procedure. No monies will be handled by myself or other station staff.

How It Works And What We’re Doing

To donate to Shelly’s Stem Cell procedure, Click here and make your donation. Any amount helps. For every dollar you donate, you then get to make a request which will be aired on the request-a-thon on December 12, 2015. Myself, Shelly, and several of our XTFM airstaff will be on-hand for the broadcast event. I will host the entire show along with Shelly, and many of our other DJ’s have committed to joining us throughout the day.

Once you’ve completed your donation, send your requests to requests@wesderby.net. Along with your requests, you may either send your receipt to show you’ve donated, or I’ll confirm your donation with Shelly to make sure it has been processed before adding to the requests for the show. Pretty simple! So, if you donate $1, you get one request. If you donate $10, you get 10 requests.

Please have requests submitted to me by 11:59 PM US Eastern Time on Thursday, December 10, 2015. Of course, donations will be taken until Shelly raises enough money for the procedure and other necessary expenses associated with it. Depending on the success of this request-a-thon, there may very well be a second one.

To listen, Visit the XTFM website and pick your media player of choice. Or, if you have the TuneIn Radio app on your mobile device, simply go to the Search tab and search for X Transmission FM. Then, on the 12Th of December, tune in, and listen for your name and your requests. You get the joy of helping someone out, and hearing songs you’ve picked. There are no limitations as to genre , adult language, or other content. if I have it or can locate it, it will get played.

If you have any questions, feel free to contact me via the form on the website, or leave them in the comments.
