Alicia And Wes of The Meltdown Present Positive Impact: Christian Impact Edition

So, we’re all stuck at home, and we can’t go to church on Sunday. However, that doesn’t mean we can’t praise Him together. Join Alicia and I as we fill in for Alternative Ash tomorrow (Sunday) night at 7:00 East. Instead of our usual Meltdown fare, we’ll bring you a great variety of Christian music. Praise and Worship, CCM, Christian hard rock and metal, and everything in between. We’ll start at 7:00 PM East, and go until 10:00 PM.

Of course, as always, your Christian music requests are welcome! Get them in via http://tunes.wesderby.net, or via http://magic109.com/request; just select my name, Wes Derby, from the drop-down. You’ll hear artists like Chris Tomlin, Carman, Third Day, Stryper, Disciple, P.O.D., Skillet, Casting Crowns, Elevation Worship, Hillsong, and so much more!

Please join us by visiting http://magic109.com or by searching Magic 109 on TuneIn Radio on your Android or iOS device. Alternatively, you can tell your smart speaker “Play Magic 109 on TuneIn”.

We may not be able to gather together for worship in the traditional manner, but Sunday night, Alicia and I will bring the worship team into your homes, cars, walks, offices, or wherever else you may be. Let us uplift and encourage you during these crazy times.

It’s a Double Dose Of The Meltdown This Week On Magic; Wednesday and Sunday

It’s an unusual week for myself and Alicia on Wes’s Musical Meltdown. No show Tuesday, thanks to some technical Gremlins who got hungry after midnight. But, the glitches have been ironed out, and we will take to the Magic 109 airwaves this week.

First up, tomorrow, Wednesday, we’ll be in for Annie’s Warm Wonderland. Anything goes musically, and we do mean anything. We’ll start at 6:00 East and go until 9:00!

Sunday, we’ll be in for Alternative Ash’s Positive Impact. This week, it becomes The Meltdown’s Christian Impact, all Christian contemporary, rock, praise and worship, and anything else in the collection that falls under the Christian music umbrella.

To listen, of course, go to https://magic109.com for listen links, find us on TuneIn Radio for your smart phone, or tell smart speakers “Play Magic 109 on TuneIn”.

To make requests, visit the library, up now, at http://tunes.wesderby.net. Make your requests for the Wednesday show; I’ll start allowing requests for Sunday’s show on Friday. Alternately, you can also use the request form at http://magic109.com/request; just select Wes Derby from the drop-down.

We look forward to entertaining you outside of our usual nights. Wednesday will be anything goes, so there may be adult content. Sunday will be an all-Christian music show, safe for the entire family.

It’s a Meltdown In The Rock Vault As Wes Derby Fills In For Brice This Week!

On this week’s Rock Vault, Brice will be away, so Wes Derby’s gonna play! Join me at noon East/900 AM Pacific Friday as I attempt to do the show justice. No features, but we’ll have lots of great rock from yesterday and today. There’ll be some party tunes to get you ready for the weekend, some new stuff you may not have heard yet, some forgotten gems that may take you back to another time and place, possibly even some Christian rock, and of course, your requests are welcome.

Feel free to use the form at http://tunes.wesderby.net or fill out the email submission at http://magic109.com/request, and if it’s rock/hard rock/metal/classic rock, I’ll play it for you. If it doesn’t fall under the rock umbrella, the request will be held over for Tuesday night’s regular time.

To catch the show, visit http://magic109.com, find Magic 109 on TuneIn Radio for your smart phone, or tell that Alexa or Google Assistant “Play Magic 109 on TuneIn”. Hope to see you there; the vault will open promptly at noon, and I’ll be gone with the valuables by 3:00 East!

Wes’s Musical Meltdown: Back To The Normal Night and Time

The Meltdown had to go away for a bit for health reasons; we returned with a fun fill-in show Saturday night. This week, we’re back to the normal time, and causing all the same trouble. We’ll be on magic109.com at 7:00 PM East, Tuesday evening, and we hope you’ll be there, too! To listen, of course, visit http://magic109.com, find us on TuneIn Radio, or tell smart speakers “Play Magic 109 from tuneIn”.

This week on the show, we’ll of course have our cover comparison, lots of new and classic tunes, and your requests are welcome at http://tunes.wesderby.net or http://magic109.com/request. In addition, we’ll have a brief tribute to the late Kenny Rogers, and perhaps some music to help us get through this whole social distancing/COVID-2019 thing.

As always, anything goes. If you want to hear something, use the above links to submit your requests, and we’ll play them if we have them. No genre off-limits.

The Meltdown Takes Over House Calls At 10:00 PM East Saturday; Let’s Have a Virtual Party

Spring has arrived…And thanks to the COVID-19 Virus, we’re all basically stuck in our homes. Whether you’re enjoying the quarantine, or hating it like many of us, we’re all doing our part. But, just because we’re not able to go out and have fun with friends in the community doesn’t mean we can’t have a house party of our own. You bring your own drink and food of choice, Alicia and I will supply the tunes to keep you going for a few hours Saturday Night.

Thanks to seizure issues, I’ve been off the air since midway through my March 10 show, and I’m wanting to get back on and play some tunes for the Magic listeners. So, instead of waiting until next Tuesday, The Meltdown will take over the slot normally held by House Calls with Doc. We’ll start at 10:00 PM East, and go for two or three hours of musical goodness. Of course, your requests will help the direction of this little virtual party. Get them in by searching the library at http://tunes.wesderby.net before and during the show, or submit the request form available at https://magic109.com/request, find my name in the drop-down, and your request will be emailed to me. If you’re new to the Meltdown, there are no rules. I don’t care if it’s country, rock, Christian, secular, old, new, pop, metal, jazz…If it’s in the library, it’s fair game on this show.

Of course, I intend to be back to my normal schedule Tuesday night…But I figured we could all use a distraction from all this virus talk that’s monopolizing our news feeds and our social media. Let’s kick back, crack a cold one or two if you wish, and enjoy some good tunes.

See you tomorrow night, 10:00 PM East, for The Meltdown’s Invasion of House Calls. http://magic109.com, find us on TuneIn Radio, or tell smart speakers “Play Magic 109 on TuneIn”. I hope to see you there. I’m not Doc, but I think I’ve got the right prescription for these troubled times.
