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.

    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.

For Immediate Release: Local Deejay and Teacher at Ohio Media School needs a new kidney

By Mark E Pauley Sr.

SHEFFIELD LAKE, Ohio – David Sprouse, a forty-six-year-old man from Northeast Ohio, needs a kidney transplant because of complications from an injury while working at the FORD Motor Company over 10 years ago.  According to David, he developed an infection from a strain of bacteria called MRSA. David reluctantly started a “gofunme” campaign, https://www.gofundme.com/a-kidney-transplant-for-christmas, to help with the costs of the transplant, recovery time, rehab expenses, lost wages, etc.

According to the Mayo Clinic, MRSA stands for methicillin-resistant staphylococcus aureus and is an infection caused by a strain of bacteria that is resistant to the antibiotics commonly used to treat ordinary staph infections. MRSA infections typically occur in patients who have been in a hospital or other health care settings. MRSA infections start as small, red bumps that can quickly progress into deep, painful abscesses that require surgical draining, notes Mayo Clinic. In some cases, a MRSA infection remains on the skin; however, it can spread into the body. Once a MRSA infection has spread, it can cause infections in the bones, joints, surgical wounds, the bloodstream, heart valves and lungs.

David has also lost his mother to MRSA, she passed away in 2013. David believes she contracted the bacteria while caring for him.  David has had skin sores and eye problems, he lost a foot and has had many issues with joints.  In the middle of all this, he was diagnosed with a chondrosarcoma (cancerous tumor) on his brain stem. His kidneys were affected by all the medications, and are now shutting down. According to David, “Just one good kidney would keep me alive!”.
Seven people have volunteered to be tested as potential donors. David is hoping to have the surgery and begin the recovery within a month or two.

David is a beloved teacher at the Ohio Media School, beonair.com, in VALLEY VIEW, Ohio, he’s a writer and photographer for the Northeast Ohio Sports Insiders or neosportsinsiders.com and allsportscleveland.com.  David is also an on-air talent at WIXY1260Online.com.

WIXY1260Online Says Goodbye...

No, WIXY1260Online is not going anywhere, we just want to say goodbye to 2016 and goodbye to radio as you know it. At the end of every year, us humans habitually reflect, look forward and make plans. Here are some EASY resolutions you can make for a better 2017 and future:
 
1.) Ditch Terrestrial (AM/FM) Radio - why suffer through the same songs hour after hour and tons of commercials? You CAN do better, and you DESERVE better!
 
2.) Jettison Satellite Radio - granted satellite is better than terrestrial in music variety, but satellite COSTS YOU MONEY, and even there, the commercials are creeping in. Radio was meant to be free, resolve to tell the greedy corporations that your ears aren’t for sale!
 
3.) Dump iHeart - iHeart and others like it are a desperate attempt by terrestrial station owners to romance you into listening to their “free” internet stations. Free, but at what cost? Dozens of commercials and a music format (mp3, typically) that hogs your mobile data - does it make sense for you to PAY for their commercials and the music they decide should be on the air? The love is a lie, resolve to find a new lover that cares about you! (Us!)
 
4.) Invest a few minutes in yourself by learning how to listen to the wonderful universe of truly free Internet Radio - it is much more mobile and cost effective to you, and your ears will thank you! WIXY1260Online is committed to playing 55+ minutes per hour of the best variety of music (over 4,000 songs!) from the 60’s & 70’s (with some 50’s too.) We have a dedicated “WIXY1260Online” mobile app for your smartphones & tablets that is totally free and streams in the lowest data usage, yet highest quality consumption format (HE AAC+). There are no subscription fees, and our live DJs are here to entertain you and take your song requests. We are committed to giving you the local flavor of radio, the way it USED to be before greedy corporations became involved.
 
At WIXY1260Online, The Future of Radio is Now! We’re bringing back radio the way it was MEANT to be.... Fun, Free and Non-Pretentious. Join us and tell your friends - it will be the easiest, funnest and wisest resolution you will make - without the sweaty smell of the gym.
 
 
Happy New Years from WIXY1260Online!

Owner, General Manager & Chief Engineer

3 New Shows with 3 New WIXY SuperMen

We are proud to announce that we have added three new live shows and DJs to our lineup!

Peter Bernardo ("Kafer") - Born in Germany, Peter moved with his family to Alabama when he was a toddler. The son of a father in the military, the family moved around a lot. He went to school in Virginia and later moved to Ohio where he graduated from Chanel High School and later attended Cleveland State University. He cites his love of music for getting into radio broadcasting and DJ-ing. "Kafer" as he is nicknamed, is a graduate of the Ohio Media School, and has over ten years of experience including a stint with Freddie James & Associates.

** Join Kafer every Saturday from 11 AM to 3 PM


Matt Oravec ("Moe") - A Cleveland native and Ohio Media School graduate, Moe brings a fun and unique personality, which can be described as, "Laid Back with Wholesome Originality," to the crew of WIXY Supermen. Listening to Moe, you'll understand why he specializes in Voice Overs with his deep and warm voice, but he also specializes in audio editing as well. When Moe is not swooning with that voice, he enjoys fried foods, alcohol, Transformers and comic books. He's not fond of cold pizza, miserable people, bad drivers, tight pants or wet socks. We've grown pretty fond of Moe here at the station, and we hope you will too!

**Catch Moe every Tuesday from 11 AM to 3 PM.


Mike Holyko - Lakewood native and resident Mike Holyko brings nearly 30 years of experience and professionalism to our team (though you'd never guess it from his crazy, fun-spirited attitude, and we see that as a bonus!) Mike, who served in the U.S. Air Force, graduated from the Ohio Media School, where he is now a lead instructor and coordinator, in addition to running his own production company. Add to his impressive education an acting degree, a double major grad from Cleveland State University and a Masters in Psychology. Mike holds an FCC license and has a long list of stints including the Armed Forces Radio Network, WZOO, WTAM, WMMS & WOIO/WUAB.

**Wake up with Mike every Sunday morning from 8-11 AM

>All of our Live Show Times can be found on our Happenings Page at WIXY1260Online.com
