Upcoming Events (via our Happenings Page)
Summer of Love
We're celebrating the Summer of Love, WIXY Style!   All summer long (June 1 through Labor Day weekend), at our live events and on our website, we're asking you to pick your favorite song from 1967. Visit our Summer of Love section at the bottom of our Happenings Page for the song list, winners names and prize details!   Capping off the event, Tony Z and Ray King will be hosting a special show (Sunday, Sept. 17, from 3-7 PM) which recounts the top 67 songs of 1967 - with the top songs chosen by your votes!  Prize winners will be chosen from there and will have to be tuned into this special show to win.

Remember to listen to us on the go!  WIXY1260Online is perfect music for hauling around the kiddies to & from school, heading home from work, or just out cruising around - stop sitting at red lights listening to too many commercials!  Just hook up your smartphones to your car stereo with an auxiliary jack or bluetooth and the turn on our mobile app and you're all ready to rock AND roll!  All kinds of listening instructions are here:

Much WIXY Summer of Love, LOVE!

Gary Schmitz
Owner, General Manager and Chief Engineer
