About WIXY1260Online

From 1965 to 1976, WIXY 1260 AM was an incredible force in the Cleveland, Ohio, radio market, and has never been forgotten. Now, two WIXY fans from Cleveland, with a great set of volunteers, have given the station new life...on the Internet. WIXY1260Online has been active since October 2011 and offers the same high-energy music and fast pace that made the original WIXY a legend in the annals of Top 40 Radio! The top hits and local favorites that were played on WIXY 1260 AM can be heard once again at www.wixy1260online.com. All songs are in a high-quality format, many of which are available in stereo for the first time, and can be heard for free, 24/7/365.

Newsletter 4/23/2019: Beyond all Expectations

Greetings WIXY Friends,
 
We hope you are having a great year so far, 2019 has certainly brought a lot of excitement for us at the Station, and we will continue that momentum with some more exciting stuff to tell you about here.
 
 
PISTON POWERED EXCITEMENT
Thanks to everyone who showed up at the IX Piston Powered Auto-Rama in March, we had an awesome time in our 5th year at the event hosting new and old friends, the legendary Belkin Productions (Fran & Jules Belkin), and Cleveland Radio Legend Larry Morrow!  The Photos and Video from the event are available on our Gallery page at www.wixy1260online.com/gallery.html
 
 
THE NEXT BIG THING
You may have heard some of the buzz by now, and we're just about ready for launch.  WIXY1260Online's "Next Big Thing" is our new Sister Station, WIXY1260Beyond.  WIXY1260Beyond will carry on our tradition of more music, less talk, and limited interruptions - promising at least 55 minutes of music every hour!  There is a catch however - WIXY1260Beyond goes boldly into the future where, we feel, WIXY 1260 would have continued had they remained on the dial all those years ago.  Our new Sister Station will not replace WIXY1260Online, instead it will compliment it by giving current and new listeners a choice to expand their listening options.  WIXY1260Beyond is programmed to primarily play the top hits of the 80's and 90's, while dipping its toes into the "Beyond" (that being some 70's and 2000's).  Be sure to check out the new website (http://www.wixy1260beyond.com) and PLEASE tell anyone you know who enjoys this type of music.
