Newsletter 11/29/17: OUR BIGGEST NEWS IN 6 YEARS!


Hello Friends of WIXY1260Online, 

As we recover from our Thanksgiving holidays, and our new waist sizes, we now prepare for the holiday season ahead.  At WIXY1260Online we want to give you a good variety of holiday music (557 songs to be exact), but we don't plan to overwhelm you with it either.   If you have a favorite song, holiday or not, you want to hear just send us a request during our live shows by calling the studio at 216-744-9499 or visit our Contact page at www.wixy1260online.com/contact.html to fill out our Song Requests form. 

***We have some VERY BIG NEWS coming with regard to the future of the station.  I'm going to leave it at that for now, but suffice it to say it will be the biggest news we've shared with you since we first started broadcasting over six years ago.*** 

In the meantime, pay close attention on the air, on our social media and right here - we'll keep you posted every step of the way.



A few other of our usual newsletter tidbits:

Former SuperWoman Returning to WIXY1260Online
We hope you enjoyed hearing Lisa Jordan's voice back on the air on November 4th as much as we did.  The video can be found, along with all of our other videos, on our Gallery page at www.wixy1260online.com/gallery.html - Lisa hopes to be at the 'rock & roll controls' again soon, so stay tuned.

WIXZRadio.com "The Z" Returns to the Air
WIXZRadio.com / WIXZ1360Online ("The Z") has been back on the air for almost 2 months now.  Due to music licensing fees internet radio stations pay (because of a tilted music royalty fee structure in favor of the big boys and record labels) we've been forced to move The Z to Live365.com.  Live 365 allows us to stay on the air for a reduced fee in exchange for adding 4 minutes of commercials per hour to the air.  Despite this change, we hope to continue to push forward with The Z and continue to add new music all the time.  The Z plays the best variety of hits from the 80's, 90's and some eXtra (up to the 2010's) 24/7/365 with no listening fees and we'll continue our commitment to keep the interruptions as minimal as possible.   Tell anyone you know to tune in and check it out, and check it out for yourselves at www.wixzradio.com today!

We'll be airing live shows from time to time on The Z with a planned 80's show by Ray Twardy on Friday, Dec. 22nd from 8 PM to Midnight.

Upcoming Events (via our Happenings Page)
Live Show Times
We've had some changes to our Live Show lineup with the addition of new DJs (Jeff Strich - Weekdays 8-11 AM) and Dave Glick (Mon. & Tues. 11-3 PM), as well as several other DJs switching their show times for personal needs.  Our most up to date show times are on our Happenings Page and we continue to have LIVE DJs on the air seven days a week.

Thanks for being a friend and a fan, we hope you had a fantastic Thanksgiving and wish you all an enjoyable holiday season ahead.  

Very Warm Regards,

WIXY1260Online Welcomes Tim "Shaggy" Kulik

Please join us in welcoming our newest Superman, Tim Kulik (affectionately nicknamed, "Shaggy")!

Cleveland born Tim Kulik moved to Tennessee at a young age and graduated from Perry County High School. Afterwards, he became a licensed piercer and in 2004 he moved back to Ohio putting his talents to work at a local tattoo shop. If you meet Tim, you’ll see himself as an artful expression of his capabilities.

In 2010, Tim toured the country doing 28 shows and 2000+ miles with one of his favorite bands and soon after began working for Hungry Hustler Records, and toured with a Grammy nominated rap artist.

Not one to shy away from new opportunities, Tim worked in the print industry and became a journeyman press operator with the Teamsters.  Ultimately, his love of music won out and he put some credentials to his music industry past by attending the Ohio Media School.  Tim’s diverse experience and willingness to do whatever he can to be successful is why we’ve found him to be such a great fit at WIXY1260Online.

Catch Shaggy Saturday nights from 7-11 PM

Newsletter 4/17/17: Get Back To Where You Once Belonged

Greetings WIXY Family,
 
 
We hope your Spring is going well and the Easter Bunny didn't hop by your house.  We hope your Easter or Passover holiday was great and you got to enjoy your weekend. 
 
 
Get Back To Where You Once Belonged
 
The Beatles once sang, "Get Back...Get Back To Where You Once Belonged."  We're proud to say WIXY'S BACK, and we're having fun proving, "In Cleveland, We're Number One!" (as an original station jingle proclaims).  We're working hard each and every day to make this the FUN station that not only plays the music you love, but provides you with great entertainment and memories along the way.
 
With this, we are excited to announce some exciting milestones.   Although we don't typically make our statistics public, we have worked hard and long (as the longest running internet station in the area) and hope to share with our volunteers and listeners what we've been able to achieve - which has been tremendous and gratifying!
  • We've reached almost 11,000 followers on our Official Facebook Page ("WIXY1260Online") (a 49% increase since last year at this time),
  • Had 110,904 listeners tune in in the 1st Quarter of 2017 (a 52% increase over last year!), and
  • Had over 46,000 visitors to our website in the 1st Quarter of 2017.
 
Cost Effective Advertising and Appearance Rates
 
We don't believe in pretty, misleading graphics and numbers.  Our "no smoke & mirrors" approach makes no false promises to our advertisers and event planners of what they can expect from their dollars.  We deliver excellent services for below market rates because we believe in our community and are committed to bringing back radio the way it was meant to be.... fun, fair and non-pretentious.  We are not motivated by profit, we are motivated by making new friends and sharing great experiences.
  • We will entertain most any kind of event, with professional DJs who are established in the business and area.
  • We offer great website advertising packages to fit all budgets.
  • We offer custom over-air advertising solutions to fit any strategy and budget.
Complete an Advertising/Event Request form on our Contact Page today, or call our Sales Manager, Eric Rath at 440-552-0800, our GM, Gary Schmitz at 216-926-3429 or our Studio at 216-744-9499.

Newsletter 3/16/17: IX Piston Powered Auto-Rama, New SuperWoman and more!

Greetings WIXY Fans,
 
Even if we don't manage to catch the Leprechaun this year, we're still pretty darn lucky here at the station - and we want you to get in on the fun!
 
IX Piston Powered Auto-Rama
 
    It's hard to believe another year has crept up on us so quickly! But, here we are again looking to meet new people and reconnect with those from years past, and of course, checking out all the great piston-powered items that fill the entire IX Center.  Break out of your igloos and come visit us in the South Hall's Hot Rod Asylum from March 17th through the 19th as we rock out with a new sound system courtesy of Althar Audio and Cinema Systems (www.atssounds.com).
 
    We'll be broadcasting live Friday, March 17: 3PM – 10PM Saturday, March 18: 10AM – 10PM Sunday, March 19: 10AM – 6PM, with most of our regular DJs as well as some special guest DJs with a visit from longtime friend, Gary Lee, who will be gracing us with his talents once more!  Be sure to tune in or show up at the show as we'll continue to give away prizes for our Winner's Circle Contest (details: http://www.wixy1260online.com/happenings.html#header2-y)
 
    At the show, come meet all the WIXY1260Online crew and get your hands on some free goodies as well as all of our Merchandise!  Let us show you how to install the WIXY1260Online App to earn a free button or bumper sticker, and we'll show you how to sync your smartphones with your car audio thanks to Brunswick's Home and Car Audio Specialists at Sound Effects (http://www.sndeffects.com/)
 
New SuperWoman
 
    Please welcome Chelsea Lyons to the WIXY1260Online crew!  Chelsea is a West Virginia native and a graduate of the Ohio Media School and joins us with several years of experience from WMJI, WCGR and presently, WINT.  Chelsea has an endearing personality and is always cheerful and easy to get along with, and we're confident she'll benefit our station with her positive energy and willingness to help out in any way possible.   Check out Chelsea every Wednesday night from 7-11 PM!
 
Winner's Circle
 
    If you've been listening to our live shows over the past month, you know we're giving away mystery prizes to our daily listeners.  Follow our Official Facebook or Twitter accounts ("WIXY1260Online"), or just tune in for info on each DJ's contest and then, if you win a mystery prize that month, you'll be automatically entered for a monthly Grand Prize!   Everyone (ex. WIXY Staff & Family) can win a mystery prize every month, but you may only win one Grand Prize.   Grand Prize winners will also be invited to join us for our 4th of July Parade!  (Grand Prize winners must be from the Continental U.S.).   February's Winner of a desktop sound system worth over $50 was Larry W. of Beachwood, Ohio!  For March, we've got a waterproof portable bluetooth speaker worth over $50 up for grabs!   The WIXY Flying Saucer is up in the sky somewhere, searching for its next winner - LET IT BE YOU! 
 
    Winner's Names are in our Winner's Circle at the bottom of our Happenings Page (here: http://www.wixy1260online.com/happenings.html#header2-y)
