The WIXY 1260's are a 4-piece oldies band comprised of seasoned veterans dedicated to the concept of delivering a special mix of 2-3 minute AM radio hits that would have been heard on the popular Cleveland super station between 1965 and 1975. The band features four different lead singers to recreate top 40 music from that era.

Biography

Remember when cars came standard with an AM radio? All the songs were two to three minutes long. There was only one station to listen to for top 40 music in Cleveland between 1965 and 1975 while driving. That was Super Station, WIXY 1260 AM. Let us take you back to a time before iPods. Before Satellite radio. Before CD's. Vinyl records and 8-track tapes were the preferred media forms. Some of the records were known as 45's or singles and for a while they outsold albums. The WIXY 1260's pay tribute to the music of that era in Cleveland history with nostalgic hits rarely heard today but are etched in the minds of anyone over the age of 40. Both waves of British Invasion bands are covered as well as the long-haired, peace loving American hippy music of that decade. So, put on your bell bottom jeans, your smiley face t-shirt or paisley long sleeve, and your peace sign necklace. Load up the gang in the VW bus with shag carpet on the inside and the "Keep on Truckin" bumper sticker and join us for a trip back in time. You can't help but tap your feet to the beat and sing along with the WIXY 1260's.
