Wes’s Musical Meltdown for 12/03/2017: Christmas Tunes Edition

This week on the Meltdown was the anual…Or almost anual; a few years have been mmissed…Christmas special. Just over three hours of a mix of traditional and novelty Christmas tunes, both religious and secular. Also, a couple plugs for my new business! Most of this show is family-friendly; you should be able to discern the parts that aren’t by viewing the playlisst below.

Join me on December 10 for what may be the last live Meltdown of 2017 on XTFM. Not going anywhere, but will be pre-recording for the end of the year due to the holidays and having my daughter in town. Family first.

We also have new country from Carly Pearce, Lee Brice, Brad Paisley, Keith Urban, Kelleigh Bannen, and much more. Of course, plenty of requests. We also dig up some classic gems from 90’s rockers Caroline’s Spine, Pist.On, and The Four Horsemen. Enjoy!
