From the Vault — Wes Rocking Through The 80s

I found a very old photo album and made a few scans to share with my friends.  It occurred to me that many of my listeners have hung with me through the years and went to these same shows and met these same folks.  So get ready for some fun!

I shared all of these on my Facebook.  I don’t mind if you friend me, but I’ll warn you now that my personal Facebook is a little radical and anti-religion. If that bothers you, stick with the FMX page where I put more of the funny and harmless stuff. Moving on!  I’ve been absolutely horrible about keeping up with this stuff over the years, truth is, I didn’t care that much. Also, back in the day, the guys at the photo huts would steal my photos and like anyone else, you open a photo album and you find out you took all the pictures and you weren’t even in them. Anyways. Enjoy:
