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, home assistant device 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.
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 some of WIXY's original jocks, our fans and, of course, a group of dedicated volunteers, all experts in their respective fields (many of whom are radio veterans), we are pioneering the Future of Radio and making it the way it was meant to be - fun and non-pretentious. WIXY1260Online is playing the best variety of the 60's and 70's (anywhere on the planet)!
