Newsletter 9/20/2019: Leafing the Others Behind

Greetings WIXY Friends,
 
 
We hope you have had a great Summer season and are ready for all things Fall.  This time of year brings a great harvest of crops and, here at the station, more music being added regularly to the WIXYTronic.  We've had a busy year so far and have seen unprecedented growth in our Facebook followers (almost 15,000!!) and our month-over-month listening has increased by 1,000 hours per month! 
 
Thanks to you, we are "leafing" the others behind as more and more people like you realize the best things in life are free!  We believe nobody should ever have to pay for enjoying great music, or be annoyed by endless commercials and frequently repeated songs - and we've been committed to that philosophy for over 8 years now (we celebrated 8 years on the air Sept. 6th!). 
 
While adjusting to the modern listening technologies, our listeners and friends have learned that internet radio IS the future and is more widely available and accessible than previously thought.  In fact, once people realize how easy it really is to listen to our stream, to enjoy the above-mentioned benefits, and to follow our great live DJs (who take requests from our library of over 6,000 songs), they rarely listen to anything else.
 
 
LISTENING MADE EASIER
Our improved Listen Page at http://www.wixy1260online.com/listen.html  allows listeners to more quickly tune in, and features helpful, step-by-step listening instructions for the many ways to tune in.  Our Mobile "WIXY1260Online" Apps (Android, Apple and Amazon) feature leading-edge technology that uses very little mobile data (when not on wi-fi) with the greatest sound quality in the industry, and are completely free.  You NEVER pay a subscription fee!
 
 
GET IN GEAR
Get your WIXY1260Online gear from our Merchandise Page today!  Buying WIXY1260Online-branded goods helps us bring you the great music you love - please support www.wixy1260online.com and tell your friends!  If you haven't visited the store recently, check it out today - we have reduced many prices!  >Order Now on our Merchandise Page!
 
 
WE LOVE OUR SPONSORS
At WIXY1260Online, we enjoy bringing the music to you with 55+ minutes of music every hour with a great staff who enjoy what they do.  Thanks to our sponsors, we're able to do this at no cost to you.
  • This month's featured sponsor is : Euclid Beach Park Now - Preserving the history and the grounds of the amusement park many Clevelanders recall fondly, Euclid Beach Park Now sponsors events at the Cleveland History Center (another friend of ours) and at the original site of the park, at 16301 LakeShore Boulevard in Cleveland.  The next event happening at the original site is on Sunday, Sept. 29 at 1 PM.
 
UPCOMING EVENTS (via our Happenings Page)
Join us at all of our great events!  We love meeting our fans and spreading the WIXY love!
 
We hope to see you soon at our live events, and pledge to continue entertaining you with the best music ever recorded.   Until we meet again, stay awesome!

Press Release: A New DJ with Style Joins the WIXY Super Team! (8/26/2019)

Please give a warm welcome to WIXY1260Online's newest SuperMan, Jordan Toler (aka DJ "Style").

A Valley View, Ohio, native, music has been Jordan’s life-long love. While many kids collected baseball cards and listened to radio Disney, he was busy studying music from the past 30 years. At 13 he started his band, Lithium, as its Singer Songwriter, and plays several other instruments. Jordan’s musical taste varies widely between Elvis Presley and Nirvana - this includes WIXY era artists and those emerging today. WIXY's youngest DJ, he fits right in when it comes to passion for the music – a passion the Station is hopeful spreads to his peers.

Jordan dubbed himself DJ “Style” after reciting Ric Flair promos about “Stylin n’ Profilin” (but many think it’s because of his hair…) A talented, ambitious young guy, Jordan enjoys writing music, watching wrestling, and nature - all while attending the Ohio Media School. His motto is, “Life’s too short to waste it not doing what you love.” – the Station couldn’t agree more!

To hear the future of radio, visit www.wixy1260online.com or recently launched sister station www.wixy1260beyond.com!

DJ "Style" can be heard Fridays from 11 AM- 3 PM
