Wes’s Musical Meltdown for 8/3/2015: Recap, Playlist, and Download Links

Last night was another rousing edition of Wes’s Musical Meltdown, with a new guest co-host, Holly. It was Holly’s ffirst time doing radio, and after the nerves wore off, she did great. We had a cover comparison which pitted The Righteous Brothers up against the great Joe Lynn Turner. Great conversation, listener interaction, and requests, as my listeners are awesome!

Wes’s Musical Meltdown for 8/1/2015: Recap, Playlist, and Download

Last night’s edition of the Meltdown featured myself and Just Jo taking you on a 5-hour journey of music and conversation. Cover comparison pitted Gerry Rafferty against the Foo Fighters. I told a story of a college radio stalker from back in the day. We discussed some favorite, and some most annoying, children’s shows…And much more. We played new music from Written In Red, and Saint Asonia. A great mix of Christian and secular material on this week’s program. Warning…Some of the language may not be suitable for young ears or the easily offended.

I’ll be back on-air Monday, August 3, covering for Bob, with a special guest host at 10:00 PM East/7:00 PM Pacific on XTFM. Please join us!
