Welcome to the resurrection of a legendary Top 40 A.M. radio station, WIXY1260! We're playing the best variety of the 60's and 70's! (With some 50's too!)
From 1965 to 1976, WIXY 1260 AM was an incredible force in the Cleveland, Ohio, radio market, and has never been forgotten. Now, two WIXY fans from Cleveland have given WIXY 1260 new life...on the Internet (along with a great set of staff members, all of whom do this voluntarily). WIXY1260 Online has been active since October, 2011, and offers the same high-energy music and fast pace that made the original WIXY a legend in the annals of Top 40 Radio! We have programmed the top hits and local favorites that were played on WIXY, many available in stereo for the first time, and you can hear them in high quality 24/7/365 on your computer, smartphone, iPod, PlayStation, internet radio player, Roku player, Apple TV or tablet pc.
We regularly conduct surveys and solicit feedback via our website in an effort to make WIXY1260Online the best it can be. Naturally, the feedback was from both those who believe we should do things exactly as WIXY did, and from those who realize that times have changed, and listening to the same stuff repeatedly becomes boring. To take advantage of modern technologies and keep WIXY1260Online fresh, we have added to the depth of our collection by creating new jingles and promos as if the station were still in existence. We honor the original format as practically possible while observing modern listening trends.
To further honor the feedback, we have launched WIXZ1360Online. WIXZ 1360 AM was WIXY 1260's sister station, based in McKeepsort, PA. To utilize this relationship in a new way, we've moved all newer music (1980 and later) to our sister station at www.wixz1360online.com. At this point, we have over 5,000 songs in our combined playlist (compared to the over-the-air radio industry average of 300 songs), so boring and repetitive is out of the question. With this many songs and listening options, combined with our commitment to minimal on-air advertising, we truly believe at WIXY1260Online and WIXZ1360Online, "The Future of Radio is Now!"
Over the past few years, we have been fortunate enough to develop a strong listening audience and we thank all of our listeners for tuning in! As great as the original WIXY 1260 AM, we feel the best way to move forward is to match the original WIXY spirit with today's level of professionalism. We will continue to "Honor the Past, Respect the Present and Plan for the Future." Thanks to the help of some of WIXY's original jocks, our fans and, of course, our devoted staff, we think we have accomplished that goal. It's an on-going process, so stay tuned and Keep On Truckin'!
Thanks For Listening!
