Newsletter 4/23/2019: Beyond all Expectations

Greetings WIXY Friends,
 
We hope you are having a great year so far, 2019 has certainly brought a lot of excitement for us at the Station, and we will continue that momentum with some more exciting stuff to tell you about here.
 
 
PISTON POWERED EXCITEMENT
Thanks to everyone who showed up at the IX Piston Powered Auto-Rama in March, we had an awesome time in our 5th year at the event hosting new and old friends, the legendary Belkin Productions (Fran & Jules Belkin), and Cleveland Radio Legend Larry Morrow!  The Photos and Video from the event are available on our Gallery page at www.wixy1260online.com/gallery.html
 
 
THE NEXT BIG THING
You may have heard some of the buzz by now, and we're just about ready for launch.  WIXY1260Online's "Next Big Thing" is our new Sister Station, WIXY1260Beyond.  WIXY1260Beyond will carry on our tradition of more music, less talk, and limited interruptions - promising at least 55 minutes of music every hour!  There is a catch however - WIXY1260Beyond goes boldly into the future where, we feel, WIXY 1260 would have continued had they remained on the dial all those years ago.  Our new Sister Station will not replace WIXY1260Online, instead it will compliment it by giving current and new listeners a choice to expand their listening options.  WIXY1260Beyond is programmed to primarily play the top hits of the 80's and 90's, while dipping its toes into the "Beyond" (that being some 70's and 2000's).  Be sure to check out the new website (http://www.wixy1260beyond.com) and PLEASE tell anyone you know who enjoys this type of music.
 
 
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 we do.  Thanks to our sponsors, we're able to do this at no cost to you.  Right now we are running an awesome sale on advertising - and with our guarantee of 55+ minutes of music per hour, your ad won't get lost in a sea of endless ads like the other stations.  We also offer outstanding rates on web advertising too.  If you're looking to get the word out for your business, event or organization, we'd love to help you!  Contact us today on our website or call our business line at 440-882-3050.
  • This month's featured sponsor is:  BIG Productions, Inc. - Looking for a creative way to set your business or school apart?  Our friend Joanne at BIG Productions can hook you up.  Joanne and her team make high quality inflatable products.  (Have you seen the WIXY Gorillas or the big blue & white tent (which all the kids mistake for a bouncy castle) - Those and our banner signs are thanks to the generosity of BIG Productions!)  Check out their updated website at http://www.bigproductionsinc.com today!
 
UPCOMING EVENTS (via our Happenings Page)
Join us at all of our great events!  We love meeting our fans and spreading the WIXY love!

Press Release: WIXY1260Online Goes Into The Beyond

WIXY1260Online is leveling up its offerings by introducing the next generation of music with WIXY1260Beyond. The Cleveland, Ohio, based internet radio station is taking the covers off the new online radio station in Spring, 2019! WIXY1260Beyond will play ’80s and ’90s Top 100 Pop and Rock songs with a dash of late ’70s and ‘2000s music to allow its listeners to rock well into the "beyond." Using the familiar WIXY 1260 jingles and sounds, fifty plus minutes of subscription-free music will continue WIXY1260Beyond's predecessor's practice of making the music the star. Listeners are encouraged to tune in to WIXY1260Online for news and announcements surrounding the WIXY1260Beyond launch and journey!

Those interested in being a part of the new venture may apply for a volunteer position by visiting the WIXY1260Online ‘About’ page for further information.

WIXY1260Online prides itself in its audio quality, listening options, and fun-loving attitude and boldly goes into the Beyond, much like its loyal fans! Fans are able to download the free WIXY1260Online mobile apps, tune in on home assistants, gaming consoles, computers and more.
