The Meltdown Ends June With A New Feature And A Controversial Cover Comparison

June is coming to an end, and on Tuesday June 30, Wes’s Musical Meltdown will be here to rock your world with new tunes, requests, the Cover Comparison, and a new music news feature. Join me, 7:00 PM East/4:00 Pacific. Point your browser to https://www.magic109.com, find Magic 109 on TuneIn, or tell smart speakers “Play Magic 109 on TuneIn”. Want to hear something? No genre is off-limits. Http://tunes.wesderby.net is the request page.

This week, we have new music from Eric Church, Seether, Goo Goo Dolls, Ryan Hurd, and so many more. In addition, the Cover Comparison will pit Soundgarden against Sevendust. Our own Doc, of House Calls fame, has assured me he will have comments on this one. In addition, I bring you a new music news feature to kick off the third hour. Hoping to make this a weekly feature, so we’ll see how it goes.

Join me for the fun tomorrow night, and every Tuesday, 7:00 PM East/4:00 PM Pacific on Magic 109.

Shout it loud with Power and Praise!

Greetings, longtime and hopefully new listeners! I will be bringing you a new episode of Power and Praise tomorrow afternoon on Magic 109. The show runs from 4:00-7:00 PM Eastern, which is 1:00-4:00 PM Pacific. I play an eclectic mix of Christian music: contemporary, praise and worship, as well as Christian rock, rap, and metal.

I’ll be bringing my featured Scripture and artist back during my first show in July. However, for tomorrow, Power and Praise gets loud. Basically the emphasis is on saying/shouting it loud, whether that’s our worship, our witness, or our words…in this case, meaning our music. The result of this theme is that most of the show will be up-tempo music, with quite a bit of Christian rock. Yes, I’ll have plenty of praise and worship in there too, and even some
country/gospel. Tune in and be prepared to dance, sing, rock, shout, and say it loud!

Here are the ways you can listen! You can go to:
https://www.magic109.com
You can tell your smart speaker (such as your Amazon Echo or Google Home) to “Play Magic 109 from TuneIn.” Finally, you can download the TuneIn Radio app on your smartphone, and tell your phone to play Magic 109.

I always enjoy it when listeners make requests! You can submit your song requests by going to:
http://alicia.wesderby.net
This will allow you to search my music library to see if I have the song you want. IF I don’t, let me know and I’ll try to get it for next week’s show.

I also take your prayer requests for the segment of the show called “Prayer on Air,” where I pray for our world, our country, and any other requests I get. Don’t worry, I won’t give out any confidential details you don’t want spoken on-air. You can get both song and prayer requests to me in several ways. You can tweet me at
aliciap716. You can also send me a private message via Facebook. Finally, you can email me at the following address:
alicia(at)magic109(dot)com

Whether you’re able to tune in tomorrow afternoon or not, I’d appreciate your prayers for me, for the show, and that God uses it to reach and speak to as many people as possible.

If you can’t tune in live, you can hear the show later in two ways. I’ve created my own MixClloud account where I’ll post the show. That link is:

My partner Wes Derby is also graciously hosting my podcasts along with his own at:
http://wesderby.net

I hope to see you all tomorrow afternoon, 4:00-7:00 PM Eastern, 1:00-4:00 PM Pacific, for Power and Praise, where we celebrate the power of God and praise Him for it!

I can’t wait to go back in time with the Crazy 80’s Vault with JamminJerry

Come Monday, it will be alright!

We could hope that it won’t be another Manic Sunday. If it is, I will be going back in time! Maybe we could just blame it on the rain? What ever we do, maybe we should just eat it.

Tune in tomorrow for another round of Crazy 80s Vault from 12 to 3PM Eastern and see what I have in store for you this week or maybe someone could remind me what decade I’m suppose to be doing!

What does the weather, and the 80’s have in commen? The fact that yoyo’s seem to be all over the place! We have seen so many yoyo’s that we are going to try to give you some yoyos during this weeks version of the Crazy 80’s vault! A fast song, then a slow one. a loud one, then a soft one, one from 1980 then one from 1989, and you can help with creating yoyos too with your requests.

Springmay be a little late this year, but Annie’s Warm Wonderland is Johnny On The Spot!

This week on "Annie’s Warm Wonderland" we’ll start out with some sacred Christian music to continue the Easter celebration. We’ll play some oldies, and a few show tunes to keep you in the spirit of spring!

Then, starting next hour, it’s Johnny on the spot! This means, every song will either have Johnny in the artist, title, or reference the name.

Remember when the devil went down to Georgia to compete with Johnny, the best fiddle player that’s ever been?

Johnny Cash and Johnny Paycheck may make an appearance too!

And what a grand celebration it will be when Johnny comes marching home!
