Goodbye to a Super WIXY SuperMan, Mark Allen

Dearest WIXY Listeners and Friends,

It is with great sadness we report that one of our own, Mark Allen, has passed away this morning. Mark Allen (II) (also known in radio in the area as Bob Charles) was an original WIXY 1260 AM DJ (1974-76) and went on to have a successful career in radio. We were lucky enough to meet up with Mark a few years ago at Ghoulardifest as he was there working with our friends at the Sunday Oldies Jukebox (

He enthusiastically re-joined this new WIXY family to lend us his incredible talent as both an announcer (earlier on), and as a consultant, providing his expert insight in this business as we continue to learn, adjust and grow. Mark's vocal contributions and mentorship to our management team will be greatly missed, as will his thoughtful, sometimes demanding, but always loving friendship. 

Mark's voice can be heard in his weekly 1 Hour Special (airs Tues & Thurs 2-3 PM and Sat 3-4 pm) on our station. Mark will be greatly missed, but we know he will Keep On Truckin' up there in Rock & Roll Heaven.

Please keep Mark and his family, friends and the entire WIXY 1260 AM and WIXY1260Online family in your thoughts and prayers during this difficult time.

Respectfully yours,
