Wes’s Musical Meltdown for 07/30/2017: Music, Conversation, and Good Times

This week on the Meltdown, we brought you new music from Parmalee, Byzantine, Last Bullet, and much more. Cover Comparison pitted Willie Nelson up against Chris Stapleton, and the results were a little surprising. We also paid musical tribute to the late Chester Bennington of Linkin Park and singer/songwriter Michael Johnson.

We had a great conversation on-air between myself and Megan, who will be starting her XTFM Show with Rebekah on Tuesday at 7:00 PM East. We discussed this article about a restaurant in New York. Some people agree with their policy, many do not. The discussion in the chat room on the topic was great as well, and we read some of the comments on-air. On a sidenote, I did post the article to my Facebook, and noticed something in the comments section. Those of us with Conservative and libertarian viewpoints tended to be opposed to the policy on several grounds. Those who tend to think the restaurant is doing the right thing tended to be more left-leaning, which helps confirm the beliefs of myself and many others about our left-leaning people in the US. More on that on a future show or blog post, I’m sure.
