Ramblings and rants about the amusing, stupid things that happen to me in and around Cincinnati.

Taste My Happy!

Oh. My. God.

It is happening again. woxy.com is rising from the ashes like a phoenix. This station will never die.

Last Monday, a post appeared titled "White Knight." Nobody thought this Bill Nguyen was for real wanting to buy the station. That's right he shows up two days after it went dark.

This guy is for real. He's a legend in the Internet world and has created many successful dot.coms. Here is a quote from him:

"Thank you

Over the last week, I've seen the best parts of community online. While many websites describe themselves as a community, they're no more than a bulletin board for folks to catch up. It doesn't matter if it's called GeoCities or MySpace, it's just a big email account.

WOXY is dramatically different. Started by Doug and Linda and carried on the airwaves for more than two decades, WOXY became a place where people built memories and shared experiences through music.

While WOXY is broadcasted across the Internet to far reaching places, it always carries a bit of Cincinnati, OH and the incredible kind spirit of the people here. They're independent and believe that music is more than just some form of content but it's a part of their culture and their lives.

Over the next year, I'll work to tell music fans across the States and the globe that independent music started in Oxford, OH and it foster in your city through WOXY.com. The music scene in San Francisco during the 60's changed a generation and believe that what's happening at WOXY could turn the tide of 'one size fits all' music.

What was started in Ohio may change music forever and define it's future.

We'll be providing some ideas for how you can help WOXY later this week and next week will be an amazing moment for WOXY and the future of Rock and Roll.

More than ever, I feel incredibly grateful for the opportunity to continue the tradition you've built.


WOW! I can't wait to see what the future of rock and roll holds. Rock on!

Hey Ro. I found you by searching for your indie-culture page.

Not much. Happier than shit to have the station back! Oh, my poor neglected indie-culture site, kind of forgot about it. Hell, my computer at home doesn't even work and it makes me delirious to not be on there all night long.

What's up with you? How are the kids?
