Newsletter 12/20/2021: Coal for Christmas

To our loyal WIXY1260Online listeners and family,

First, let us wish everyone a very happy, healthy and safe Holiday Season, Merry Christmas, and Happy New Year.

Over the past 10 years, WIXY1260Online has been proud to bring back the fun of the WIXY golden era and the many great sounds of the 60’s & 70’s that have transported us to back a happier place in time when the music was as real as the love.

Today, we still love this music and have been fortunate to make many great new friends and re-connect with some old ones as well.  Our collective love of this music, and what WIXY 1260 represented for so many people in the Cleveland area, has been broadcast over the internet all over the U.S. and Canada, as well as during the dozens of great live events we’ve attended through the years.  So many of you have been supportive and gracious in recognizing our humble attempts to share this great music and these awesome memories with you, and it has made a bunch of us who pour our hearts and time into this, for free, all worthwhile.

Sadly, as greed continues to overtake our modern world, we've lost our licensing agreement with RadioCoalition because they decided to tell us on Dec. 8th they are going out of business at the end of 2021 (thanks for the timely notice!). This means we will no longer fall under their non-profit umbrella agreement with the PRO’s (Performance Rights Organizations), and we’ll now be subject to higher commercial licensing fees.  Until now, we have been thrilled to be able to hobble together our resources to be able to bring our listeners this music for no cost to the listeners.  Something most other broadcasters will find new and creative ways to charge you for and play endless commercials and a poor mix of music.  This is particularly unfair to us as we have prided ourselves in being unlike those paid services who drain your bank account.  We are dedicated to the fans and keeping the WIXY spirit alive, not a bottom line.

In the interim of implementing a longer-term strategy to move back to a non-commercial licensing arrangement, WIXY1260Online will be forced to take, at minimum, the following steps starting January 1, 2022, to mitigate the costs of broadcasting under a commercial license as follows:

  • Limit the hours during the month we broadcast.
  • Require listeners to register to listen (still free).
  • More commercials and non-music per hour.

We understand this notice is short and we are as unpleasantly surprised as you. We also know that these changes will cause disappointment on our fans.  Please don’t lose hope and stay tuned as we navigate the ‘Rocky River’ in our WIXY Amphicar to come back to providing you the same or even better level of entertainment and listening options in the future without begging for donations or charging a listening fee.

STAY TUNED FOR UPDATES.

Gratefully yours,

--
