Newsletter 2/24/2021: A Fond Farewell

Greetings WIXY Friends,

We hope your winter isn't treating you too badly, and we're looking to warmer days ahead and a Covid-Free future.  In the meantime, our DJs are here rocking the days away until we're back out and about.  Speaking of which, we've already started planning some great events, so stay dialed in to our website and keep on listening!


UPCOMING EVENTS

WIXY1260Online is stepping out and we hope you can join us at the remote events and for some special studio shows as follows...

3/5/2021: ChickenMan House Party @ Suds Maguires
3/12/2021: ChickenMan House Party w/ Special Guests from The Outsiders
3/19/2021: ChickenMan House Party w/ Special Guests from The Outsiders

DRUM UP SOME BUSINESS

Looking to drum up sales for your business?  WIXY1260Online has great advertising options for every budget.  Check out the details here! And remember, our great sponsors help keep WIXY1260Online listening free and fun for everyone.

This time around we're tipping our hat to our sponsor, Suds Maguires.  Check out their webpage today for directions, menus and take-out or dine-in options.


A FOND FAREWELL

The last few months have taken their toll on the WIXY family as we have lost both of our furry companions.  In December we lost our long-time Black Lab Mascot, Freddie, to old age.  Fred was a connoisseur of dog treats and people-food alike and always kept the studio floors clean from crumbs.  This past week we also lost our German Shepherd Security Guard, Blake, who departed us at only 6 years old after a bout with a brain tumor and seizures.  Blake was quick to greet all incoming DJs and guests with a scary bark, at least until the dog treats and hugs & kisses came his way.   So this winter and year round, remember to give your pets all the love you can because you never know when that difficult day will come.  These boys were a great part of our family and they are fondly remembered and greatly missed.


Thanks for tuning in and thanks for all your support - we look forward to a fun 2021!

Newsletter 1/4/2021: And So It Begins!

Happy 2021 WIXY Fans!

Just a quick note to wish everyone a Happy New Year!  We hope everyone had a safe and enjoyable holiday season and you are as happy as us to look at 2020 in the rear view mirror (and throw it in reverse and run it over!)  Well, better yet, we'll just go full blast ahead and crank up the volume on the free and easy to use WIXY1260Online Mobile App!

So, What's Next?

We are committed to keeping you entertained at no cost to you and making sure we do it with 55+ minutes of music every hour.  Because of the uncertainty surrounding COVID and how soon things will resemble some sort of normal, we do not currently have any remote events to announce :-(  However, we will continue to be creative with 'virtual' events like Ray King's recent New Year's Eve show and our visit from Billy Bass, Larry Morrow and the other famous WIXY folks who joined us via Skype for our Special 55th WIXY 1260 Anniversary Show (videos here). 

T-Shirt Stimulus

WIXY1260Online is doing its part to keep your music free and your memories fun.  As a special thanks to our fans, we're extending our $10 Unisex Tee Shirt Sale for a bit longer.  Grab yours today to help us spread the word and keep this awesome music rockin' well into the future.

Happy 2021 and many warm regards!

TJ

Greetings Fellow WIXY-ites....

Hopefully, those of you stuck in Northeast Ohio, like us, have survived the recent pandemic of snow.  Okay, so maybe it's not quite that bad, but like so many, we are happy this crazy year is coming to a close.  To reward you for making it this far, we will be treating you all to a special day of live shows on Saturday, December 12, beginning at 10 AM ET.

Top it off with the greatest music of the WIXY Golden Era and a Shaggurday Night (7-11 PM w/ Shaggy) and it makes for a good way to kick 2020 goodbye!  

At WIXY1260Online, we may not have the cure for COVID, but we do have the cure for crappy radio!  Tune in wherever you go with your smartphones, tablets, computers and more... and TELL YOUR FRIENDS!


Special New Year's Eve Show

Join Ray King on New Year's Eve starting at 7 PM ET for a special show.  Ray will be rocking in the new year (not a moment too soon!) with the top 10 hits of each year from 1960 through 1970!  Bottoms Up and Speakers Crankin'!


Best wishes for a happy and safe holiday season from everyone at WIXY1260Online!

Newsletter 10/24/2020: Spooky Good!

Happy Rocktober WIXY Fans!

Well, the colder weather may not be so happy but here at WIXY1260Online we hope you'll tune in and tell your friends to heat things up with us and our great hits of the past and our smokin' live shows!  As we look to bare trees and that forbidden "S" word here in Northeast Ohio, there's one "S" word we can all agree on... Sound!  At WIXY1260Online we pride ourselves in delivering the highest quality sound you've ever heard your favorite songs in, all while consuming the lowest data amount versus our competitor streaming formats, and we do it for FREE!  Why go anywhere else?


SPOOKY GOOD LIVE SHOWS

This Halloween we are excited to announce that our "Vampire of Vintage Vinyl", Ray T., will be back in the studio for a special Halloween day show from 12-4 PM to get your blood curdling, err, pumping.  Yes, the Vampire will be tricking and treating us to the best hits of the WIXY Era, with that special Spooky flavor he is so well known for!  Be sure to tell all your ghoul and gal friends, it's sure to be a haunting good time.  Then stick around for our man, Shaggy, from 7-11 PM for his weekly Shaggurday Night show!  Remember, all of our live show times are in the Happenings Section of WIXY1260Online.com - be there or we'll send the toilet-paper gobblins to your haunted house!


MORE GOOD NEWS, NEW DJs

The past few months, we have happily added some new skeletons to our closet, err, DJs to the WIXY Staff!  We thank you all for supporting WIXY newbie Mac G., who is live every Tuesday from 2-6 PM.  We are also super pumped to have a real radio veteran join our staff...  Kevin O'Neill of WGAR fame and whose spent many years rocking Detroit radio professionally, and who has often lent his pipes for many of our liners and commercials as our Announcer, is now sharing that fantastic talent with us!  Kevin's smooth voice helps us over the hump every Wednesday night from 9PM to Midnight.  And stay tuned, we have another DJ who is getting fitted for his shackles, err, coming soon.  Our DJs love to entertain you and we couldn't be more stoked!

If you or someone you know has what it takes to help us bring the music to our listeners or would like to volunteer, check out our Current Volunteer Opportunities section at the bottom of our About page at WIXY1260Online.com


CORONA CAN'T KEEP CHICKENMAN CAGED

You may have noticed we recently did a live show at Suds Maguires in Berea, Ohio, on October 16th.  After a successful night, and a special visit from our friends, The Outsiders, we will be there with Tony Z and the ChickenMan House Party again on November 20th from 6-10 PM.  The venue features a great selection of food, drinks and plenty of room to spread out for social distancing, and with enhanced sanitizing in place so you can safely enjoy the great sounds we will be featuring.  Be sure to join us or tune in!


Thanks for your support as we now celebrate our 10th year of brining this great music and station back to life.  We've made lots of friends but always want more, so be sure to tell everyone you know that WIXY is back!  And even with 10 years under our belts, we always seek your feedback to help us continue to improve - be sure to send us your thoughts any time, good or bad, using the Feedback button on our Contact Page... we want to be your favorite station!


This message sent in gratitude and loving memory of one of WIXY's original founders, Norm Wain.  Rock in Peace good buddy!


Much WIXY Love!
