On this episode of Wes Derby's Random Ramblings, the first in a bit over four months, I introduce you to Wes's Musical Meltdown, my long-running internet radio show. I also talk a bit about the final day of Magic 109, and not knowing it would be our final show. I briefly address my views on the end of the station and the speculation I've heard, I address my hosting company's fall and the changes that will be coming to when we find a new home, and hint at plans for my broadcasting future. Please enjoy this week's show, and my commentary about it and my tales of my broadcasting history. Below, find the track list for the show so you can follow along with the tunes.
