WOXY archive


WOXY.com was a modern rock internet radio station based in Oxford, Ohio and later Austin, Texas. Originally transmitted solely from WOXY (FM) at 97.7 FM in Oxford, Ohio, the station went by the 97X moniker as well as the tag line “the future of rock and roll.”

Although the station no longer exists, the music lives on. Check out the WOXY Modern Rock 500 archive for a 20-year record documenting the format's evolution.

You can also browse a reconstructed version of WOXY's daily playlist from July 2004 to September 2009, encompassing much of the online-only era.
