Wes’s Musical Meltdown is a music-focused show where no genre is off-limits. In addition to playing great tunes, Wes will interact with listeners via TeamTalk, text, tweets, and other contact methods. As nothing from the library is off-limits, you are just as likely to hear Christian artists as you are to hear off-color comedy, extreme metal, rap, country, or anything else you can think of. Every week, the show will feature a cover comparison on which the listeners get to cast their votes and may even be brought on-air to discuss. In addition, though the show is music-based, a good discussion on topics of the day is not out of the question. Escape the world for a while and enjoy The Meltdown!

Wes's Musical meltdown for 02/24/2021: Old Thrash, New Rock and Country, And Listeners Derail The Texting System With Awesome Grossness
This week's show featured lots of great tunes and conversation. We had a discussion of Papa Roach ruining one of their classics, Doc and Brice did their best to gross me out over the text system, and we had a 3-way Cover Comparison. There will be a track featured next week that, due to circumstances toward the end of the show, I wasn't feeling, so eliminated at the last minute.
The Meltdown Invades The Domain for 02/19/2021: Christian Contemporary/Rock/Praise & Worship Edition
This wasn't a regular Wes's Musical Meltdown. This week, I filled in for Nick and Bob and did something the complete oposite of The Domain. Alicia, whom regular Meltdown listeners will know, co-hosted this nearly 4-hour Christian music extravaganza with me. It was good to have her back on-air. We payed tribute to the late Carman, played a bunch of Praise and Worship, Christian rock/metal, and Christian Contemporary. Those listening say Alicia and I haven't lost our co-hosting chemistry. Give it a listen, and you be the judge!
Wes's Musical Meltdown for 02/17/2021: Harry Potter Meets The Bible, Lots Of New and Classic Tunes, And More
This week's show, as always, was a blast. We had a 3-way Cover Comparison featuring a rapper, a metal band, and a country act. We also had an interesting literary discussion involving the Bible, Harry Potter, Narnia, and even a bit of Star Wars. In addition, tons of new and classic tunes for your ears. Thanks to Jess, Alicia, Brice, Doc, Damon, Nick, Liz, and all who joined us on-air or interacted in some way.
This week's show was one of the more unusual pre-Valentine's shows you'll likely ever here. No cover comparison this week, but it should return next week. We featured a mix of love songs, break-up songs, songs for the broken-hearted, songs for those who hate love, and so much more. We were joined by Jess, Doc, Damon, Nick G, Brice, Liz, and others. This one definitely isn't for the easily offended, as is true with most weeks on the show. Enjoy!
On this week's show, we had a cover comparison featuring The Weeknd and Fame On Fire. We also played a covers set featuring some really good covers, and some not-so-good covers. We also featured new tunes from Eric Church, Cannibal Corpse, Corey Taylor, and many more. Mixed in were a bunch of great requests, and great conversations with the TeamTalk crew. A good time was had by all. If you weren't there, you missed the party...But you can re-live it through this archive.
This week on The Meltdown, we went for nearly 7 hours. A great mix of tunes, everything from Christian Contemporary to extreme metal. This show is definitely not for the easily offended. We had a 3-way Cover Comparison, some great discussions, and I was joined by Jess, Nick, Damon, and Derek of TBRN, as well as several listeners old and new. A Good time was had by all!
This week, I took over the Country Bar & Grill. We had a great mix of classic and modern country, some alternative country/Americana thrown in for good measure, and a cover comparison that will make the country purists cry, and make the metalheads happy. I was joined by the listeners on a couple segments, but on this one, we mostly let the music do the talking. See who wins in the New Music Shoot-out when Kane Brown takes on Hardy. You might be surprised at how the votes turned out.
On this week's show, I'm joined by Jess as my co-hostess. We also had visits from Damon and Nick, and were joined on-air by several listeners. Tons of new country, rock, pop, and Christian, and a bunch of classic favorites as well. We indulged in two Cover Comparison segments; one serious, one just for fun. Topics discussed on-air ranged from what makes a perfect burger to differences in good Kentucky bourbons. Of course, Jess and I give our football picks for this weekend's upcoming NFC and AFC championships. Thanks to all who interacted on-air, via tweet, or via text, and thanks for all the requests!
this week on The Meltdown, we were joined by Jess as my co-hostess. We also had appearances by fellow TBRN colleagues Nick and Damon, and my good friend Annie. Lots of great tunes and conversation, much of it not appropriate for the younger or easily offended listeners. A good time was had by all.
This is the 2020 year-in-review for country music. Nearly seven hours of great country tunes from the past year. Popular, traditional, and alternative/Americana; it's all here! Also, Jess of The Jess Mess joins me for a couple segments in which we give our NFL and college football picks for this weekend. Enjoy!
This is the year in rock and pop for 2020. Nothing scientific; it's just the stuff I thought was cool from the past year in pop, rock, and Christian music. The show clocks in at around 6 hours. Enjoy!
This is part two of The Meltdown's Christmas Extravaganza. We were joined by Tara and Alicia for the full show, and various TBRN hosts popped in and out. The show is mostly family-friendly, but as is usually the case, there are a couple sets that are not for the easily offended or younger listeners.
Join me for a shortened show. I had to shorten due to a medical episode, but the remainder of the Christmas cheer will be poured out on this week's show. A great selection of Christmas favorites and novelties, and banter with myself, Alicia, and Tara. Join us as we begin talking about holiday traditions and memories. Some material may be inappropriate for younger or easily offended audiences.
This week, the show happened on Thanksgiving Eve. Naturally, we had to put in a few Thanksgiving songs. We also featured a couple blocks of tracks from the new UFO expanded Strangers In the Night reissue. We also had a bunch of new tunes, great requests, and good conversation. Thanks to Nick and Alicia for joining me for a few segments. Our Cover Comparison got interesting as well. Sit back, and enjoy the ride!
On this week's show, I was joined by a couple fellow TBRN presenters, and a couple of random listeners. We discussed whether or not Christian Metal counts as true metal. Apparently, there are those who don't believe it does. We also had the Cover Comparison which put Johnny Cash up against Nine Inch Nails, tons of new and classic tunes, and your requests. Enjoy. Some content may not be suitable for younger listeners.
This is the first time The Meltdown has aired on TBRN. The show has been around for 11+ years, but tonight, I show the TBRN audience some of what we're about. No guests on the show, though plenty of great requests, hand-picked tunes, and the Cover Comparison. Turn it up and enjoy.
Join Wes, along with Nick Giannak III from the Digital Domain and Damon Fibraio from the No Holds Barred Music Show as they burn down the universe. Nobody and nothing was off limits in their discussions, everyone and everything was lit on fire...and that's before the music, which did its best to melt your face. The heaviest metal and the heaviest slams come together in an utterly wild two and a half hours. This content is suitable for mature audiences and is not suitable for anyone remotely easily offended.
