Sad News, Everybody...

Today, we're sad to announce that we're closing this WXYC blog.  It's always been a running journal of the culture of our radio station, as well as a place for discussion.  It will remain here, for posterity's sake, but from here onwards, there won't be any new posts.

Don't worry though!  We've been keeping multiple blogs for a while, now, and we'll still be keeping our internet presence up at  It's trendy, yes, but it fits our needs in an online space and our audience.  Head on over and check out Toothache & Son of Salami's set on the air.
