Cleveland, OH, April 09, 2018 --(PR.com
)-- In 1971, Chip Hobart came to WIXY 1260 AM in Cleveland after a stint at Canadian powerhouse CKLW (where he was known as Chuck Hobart). Chip has enjoyed much success over the years and he returns to WIXY to guest DJ a very special Live Show.
(from http://www.musicheads.us/chip-hobart/4582749188): "Chip Hobart started hanging out at radio stations when he was about 7. His Dad, Bill Hobart, was an announcer for WSYB in Rutland. Chip watched and listened intently to all the radio people and what they were doing.
He was fascinated with all the switches, buttons, knobs, dials, meters and shiny things that had lights. But, much more than that, his parents exposed him to all kinds of different music, like jazz, blues, big band, swing, folk, classical and good old rock and roll. (Chip is an avid collector with 5000 albums, 4000 45's and 1500 Cds.) With this love of music and the mystique of radio, it was a natural progression for Chip to segue into radio, following in his Dad's footsteps. Like insanity, it must be hereditary or something. Going into radio was an obsession for Chip, who wanted to play music for people, and, hopefully, entertain them with his foolish antics, and, the fact that he wasn't afraid to make a total ass of himself!..."
On Sunday, April 15th, from 3-6 PM a very special online show is scheduled at www.wixy1260online.com and the free "WIXY1260Online" mobile app.
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, with a great set of volunteers, have given the station new life...on the Internet. WIXY1260Online 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! The top hits and local favorites that were played on WIXY 1260 AM can be heard once again at www.wixy1260online.com. All songs are in a high quality format, many of which are available in stereo for the first time, and can be heard for free, 24/7/365.
