Newsletter 4/20/2022: Happy Spring (?)

Happy Spring (?) Dear WIXY Family,

     As we prepare for the Spring season ahead and look forward to being outdoors more often, when Mother Nature doesn't throw us a curve-ball snow storm that is, we want to reach out to update you on the state of the station and our progress migrating to new streaming and licensing services.

      As many of you may recall from earlier e-mails, social media posts, and the ongoing updates to our website, we have made the transition to officially operating as a non-profit webcaster, thanks to the help of our friends at Euclid Beach Park Now.  What does this mean?  It means we are able to continue to provide you with a FREE listening option that is dedicated to preserving the memory of the historic WIXY 1260 AM.  It also means lowered operating costs for the station to allow us to be viable well into the future by avoiding outlandish music royalty licensing fees that commercial webcasters must pay.  Yes, we are still legal, just at the non-commerical rates we now enjoy.  It also means we are able to pull back on most of the commercials you've been hearing over the past few months - allowing us to re-commit to at least ~50 minutes of music every hour!   WIXY1260Online has WAY MORE MUSIC than ANY other free platform.

     Now that we're officially transitioned to our newer, more reliable streaming provider, you can safely bookmark the listening links on our Listen Page at WIXY1260Online.com without worry of further interruption (or at least that's the plan!).  More exciting, our free mobile apps are now undergoing updates and will be operational VERY soon.   Also, our Alexa skill and other listening options seen on our Listen Page will become live again in the coming days and weeks.  

     Avoid missing out on the music you love... please visit our website regularly for all the latest updates on how to keep on listening.  Our listening links and helpful listening instructions will keep you grooving no matter where you go! The WIXY1260Online website is updated regularly and is your one-stop to all things WIXY1260Online - bookmark us today!


"COMING TO YOU IN 2022"... More great live events!

For one of our busiest schedules in our nearly 11-year existence, be sure to follow the Happenings Section of our website (or our Facebook page) for more event details as they are added:

4/23/2022: Cleveland Hullabaloo 2022
6/25/2022: Granger Township Bicentennial
7/22-24/2022: City of Seven Hills Home Days
8/5/2022: A 60's Summer Happening
8/13/2022: Mentor Cruise-In
8/20/2022: Kids That Grew Up in Brook Park in the 60's & 70's


WHAT A WILD RIDE!

     The 2022 IX Piston Powered Auto-Rama was an outright blast and the busiest we've ever observed in our 6 years of doing this event.  A shout out to our special guests who camped out with us at our "WIXY In The Wild" Campground this year:  Euclid Beach Park NowJakeWear | The Outsiders | Larry Morrow | and others.

     Be sure to check out our Photo Gallery and our Video Gallery for a peek into what was a wild and fun ride.


Now go fire up those grills, and burn off any snow!  And tune in, of course ;-)


Cheers!

Newsletter 2/28/2022: WIXY In The Wild

Greetings WIXY-ites,

As many of you may already know, 2022 Started with some unexpected challenges for us with regard to music licensing and changes we've been forced to make as a result.  Fortunately, despite these setbacks, we've yet again risen to the task and are making 2022 a year to remember (for better reasons, and not the licensing stuff that has us scrambling to update our listeners with new listening links.)


WIXY IN THE WILD

Yes, WIXY1260Online is going WILD!  Anyone who has visited the Happenings Section of our website can see, we have a jam-packed 2022 in store for remote events.  And thanks to our wonderful staff, we are venturing out all over Northeast Ohio with our tents and trailer to entertain you and show you how you too can listen to WIXY IN THE WILD (i.e., in campgrounds, parks, or even your own back yard).  

We are setting up camp this April 1-3 at the I-X Piston Powered Auto Rama and excited to revive this great tradition of connecting with our piston-loving friends for hot rods, hot WIXY gear, and cool WIXY tunes!  Don't miss it!


"COMING TO YOU IN 2022"... More great live events!

For one of our busiest schedules in our nearly 11-year existence, be sure to follow the Happenings Section of our website (or our Facebook page) for more event details as they are added:

Newsletter 1/19/2022: Keeping the Needle on the Record

Greetings WIXY Loyal Listeners,


Happy New Year, WIXY Friends!  We hope your holidays went well and you're safe and healthy as we forge ahead into a new year filled with hope, challenges and life's unpredictable path.  As many of you may have already known, we got thrown a curve ball at the end of 2021 and had to switch to a new commercial licensing provider with higher broadcasting rates than our prior, now defunct, provider.  Nonetheless, we have made some hard adjustments and continue to navigate these waters with a goal of keeping the music going.


KEEPING THE NEEDLE ON THE RECORD

Avoid missing out on the music you love... please visit our website regularly for all the latest updates on how to keep on listening.  Our listening links and helpful listening instructions will keep your 'needle on the record'.  And, as usual, we will continue to post to Facebook, Twitter, and our news and support blogs as well (which can be subscribed to).  The WIXY1260Online website is updated regularly and is your one-stop to all things WIXY1260Online - bookmark us today!

Of course, we did have to implement some changes as a result of the increased commercial rates.  You'll notice more commercials which we are required to play by our licensing provider to avoid even higher fees. And, because of these changes, you may be wondering why your mobile apps or old ways of listening no longer work.  We assure you our proprietary WIXY1260Online mobile apps will be back in the future, so don't delete them just yet.  Also, services like TuneIn and your Home Assistants, like Alexa/Amazon Echo, will return to normal eventually.  In the meantime, we have posted updated instructions on our Listen Page to tune in using a new Alexa Skill and Live365 Mobile app to tune in.  (Mobile users can still listen using their phone's web browser and clicking the Play button at the bottom of our webpage.)


NOW FOR THE GOOD STUFF

Try as they might, they can't keep us down!  WIXY1260Online is committed to bringing you the radio you deserve at no cost - We are dedicated to the fans and keeping the WIXY spirit alive, not a bottom line.  And, as in the past, we LOVE getting out on the town and spreading the WIXY gospel all over Northeast Ohio.  The WIXY Faithful can attend our upcoming events and get your groove on.   Just visit the Happenings Section of our website, and social media, to see what fun events we've got in store.

HOW CAN YOU HELP

We've been flattered by suggestions that we accept donations, but for now we'd prefer to give you value for your dollar.  There are other ways you can help however, and we'd really love that.

  • Visit us at our Events and support our event hosts.
  • Grab some WIXY gear at our Online Store.
  • Advertise your business or event with us, or hire us to host your event.
  • Support our Sponsors (seen on our About page).
  • TELL YOUR FRIENDS to tune in.  Help each other keep the WIXY word alive and share us with potential sponsors.


Thanks to everyone for your support, let's Keep on Truckin' into 2022 and beyond!
