This Week On Wes’s Musical Meltdown: Books And Music Collide! Author Interview, Grammys, More

The headline pretty much says it all! This week on Wes’s Musical Meltdown, Alicia and I have a jam-packed show for you. In the first hour, we’ll feature a mix of tunes, a 3-way Cover Comparison, and your requests. Get them to us via the Magic 109 Request Page.

In the second hour, we’ll have an interview with our friend and self-published author Jo Elizabeth (J.E.) Pinto. She’ll talk about her two books, The Bright Side of Darkness and Daddy Won’t Let Mom Drive the car. She also gave us a 6—pack of songs she feels the main characters in Bright Side might have listened to during the era in which the book takes place.

During the third hour, as the 62nd annual Grammy Awards were handed out this past Sunday, we’ll do a brief feature and play some of the songs/artists that won awards. Of course, there’s no way we’ll get to all the winners, but we’ll do a brief selection of the best and most notable winners from rock, pop, country, album of the year, record of the year, and so on. So, there will not, unless we have time after the Grammy spotlight, be much time for requests outside the third hour. I apologize in advance, but hope you’ll enjoy the show regardless. The first hour, up until Cover Comparison, will be filled with requests if you have them. That, I can promise you.

As a heads-up, we will do a love and anti-love songs show on February 11, the Tuesday before Valentine’s Day, so get your requests and dedications ready for that one…Dedications for your current love, hate for the ex, something in between…We’ll take it all!

BTW, if you’d like to read the books from our featured author on tomorrow’s show, you can get Bright Side of Darkness at https://amzn.to/2U2DgTC

You can obtain Daddy Won’t Let Mom Drive the Car at https://amzn.to/2tUHhPp

I look forward to having you join us tomorrow night. Visit http://magic109.com for listen links, tell Alexa or Google Home “Play Magic 109 From TuneIn”, or find Magic 109 on the TuneIn Radio app for your phone or tablet!

Wes’s Musical Meltdown Is Back For Another Exciting Week!

First, I want to thank everyone who made the first week of Wes’s Musical Meltdown on Magic 109 such a huge success. Thanks for the requests, the interaction, and the feedback. In ten years of doing internet radio, I can honestly say it was one of my most listened to broadcasts! Of course, I think a lot of that is due to my co-host, the lovely Alicia, as well as you, the listeners, spreading the word. You are appreciated more than you know!

Tuesday night, we’ll be back at 7:00 PM East for another week of musical insanity. We’ll have a new Cover Comparison, we’ll talk about last week’s results, and we’ll play your requests. Also, lots of new tunes from all over the musical spectrum coming your way. We’ll have a set we’ve called the “Rebel” set; you’ll have to tune in to see what we mean. Of course, knowing me, I’ll touch on sports and current events from the past week as well.

I do intend to hang out on Team Talk during the show, so listeners are welcome to come up and join us. I haven’t set things up for Team Talk to go out over the air, but that’ll come one of these days.

In exciting news, we also have a new show intro! I haven’t had a cool show intro in so long, I’ve sort of forgotten what that feels like. Thanks to Alicia for her voice talent assistance, and offering me feedback throughout the production process. Tune in, and let us know what you think.

Finally, I’m going to provide a few useful links related to The Meltdown. Posting of these links does not constitute endorsement by Magic 109’s management or ownership.

Snowed in Inside The Retro Arcade

Hey, it’s Z-Man! Congratulations, you have survived another week and made it to the weekend. If you talk to people where I live, the upcoming forecast calls temperatures colder than the ice world of Hoth and if the parking lot at the local grocery store is any indication, apparently we are in for about eight feet of snow. Well, if you’re going to be snowed in, why not grab some hot chocolate, a few snacks, a warm blanket, and hang out with me inside The Retro Arcade, tomorrow (Friday, January 17th, 2020) from 6 to 9 pm Eastern on Magic109.com! I’ll have plenty of great music from back when we all went to school even if there was a blizzard, or at least that’s what the Facebook Meme says, from artists like Nirvana, Prince, and Tom Petty, Plus, your requests, Littleflurry picks all the music in The RetroSpective and trivia. We’ll remember The Afternoon Movie, a few of those back in my day stories, and whatever else pops into my head. So? If you remember snowball fights with friends, snow forts, and your school being the one in town to call off classes, then join me tomorrow (Friday, January 17th, 2020) as I take you back to when your grandfather walked uphill both to and from school through fifteen feet of snow while being chased by a grizzly bear inside The Retro Arcade, 6 to 9 pm Eastern, right after The Rockin’ Pop Party with Geno J on Magic 109, the only station breaking the radio dial!

Introducing Wes’s Musical Meltdown; Making My Magic Debut on 1/14/20

Thanks in advance for taking the time to read this. I’m pleased to join the Magic 109 team, and am thrilled to be debuting Wes’s Musical Meltdown on Magic 109 on January 14, 2020 at 7:00 PM East. I’ve been involved in internet radio in some form since August of 2009, and have hosted The Meltdown on a few different stations over the years.

Thanks first to listeners who have followed me as the show has moved. Thanks also to those of you planning to check the show out for the first time.

For those wondering, the show has no particular format as far as genre is concerned. You’ll hear everything from Casting Crowns and Third Day to Merle Haggard and Metallica, and everything in between. There will be comedy, serious stuff, rock, country, Christian, secular. Yes, there will be adult content. You have been warned!

Of course, your requests are always welcome. Feel free to use the request form on the home page, and if I have it, I’ll play it. If I don’t, I’ll do my best to get it for a future show and to play something equally awesome to satisfy your musical cravings. I encourage listeners to interact with me via social media, requests, email, and eventually, we’ll incorporate voice chat into the show. You’re encouraged to vote in our Cover Comparison. I don’t reveal what songs/artists will be featured on the segment in advance as I want you to listen to the songs and give your objective opinions.

If you wish to find me, Twitter is wwesderby. On Facebook, just search for me by name. I do not maintain separate social media accounts for the show, so by following/friending me, you’ll gain insight into my personal, professional, and DJ life. Enter at your own risk.

In addition to myself, the show will often feature Alicia, my significant other, as a co-host. I know you will all love her as much as I do.

If you have any questions about the show, feel free to reach out to me at wes (at) magic109 dot com, and I’ll get back to you. Or, just tune in, enjoy the ride, and let me know what you think.

Some material on the program may not be suitable for younger/easily offended audiences.

All 80s & 90s to kick off 2020 inside The Retro Arcade

Hello, Z-Man here, I hope everyone had a great holiday and 2020 is off to a good start. I’m back and ready to kick off the new year by heading back to the 80s and 90s this week on The Retro Arcade tomorrow (Friday, January 10th, 2020) from 6 to 9 pm Eastern on Magic109.com! You’ll hear everything from rock, pop, dance, alternative, country, and maybe even a little comedy, from your favorites to songs you may not have heard in a long time from The KLF, Snow, 38 Special, Tom Petty, Ronnie Milsap and more. I’ll have 80s songs with something in common in The RetroSpective, and some of the 80s acts who are touring this year. But wait! As the old “as seen on TV ads” used to say, that’s not all! I’ll have some trivia, remembering classic toys, making mixtapes, back in my day stories, your requests, and whatever else pops into my head. So? Let’s party like it’s 1999 and earlier as we head into 2020 on The Retro Arcade tomorrow (Friday, January 10th, 2020) at 6 pm Eastern, right after The Rockin’ Pop Party with Geno J, here on Magic 109, the only station breaking the radio dial!
