As usual, it is happening at the Cat's Cradle.
We will be blasting 80s tunes from 9pm till around 2am.
So come then donning your best Miami Vice blazer, sequined prom dress, shoulder pads, or just your best gaudy and dazzling eighties spirit.

See you there!

Transmitting Now At 1200 Watts!

At around 10am today, WXYC switched over its signal to a new transmitter. Our power has increased from 400 to 1200 watts, and we are directional towards Raleigh, Durham and Apex (and Chapel Hill, of course). The first song played from the new antenna was Queen's "Radio Ga Ga." This comes after years of work and the station would like to thank everyone involved. We are all very excited and happy today.
