103.1 WYXX - The PartyMorris IL

WYXX (Party 103.1) – Morris, IL – 4/13/03

Quoting & paraphrasing from this issue of the “Main Street Tattler” newsletter“, dated 1/17/03…

“As Big City Radio continues its national liquidation of all its stations, 103.1 WYXX/Morris is currently Big City’s last remaining signal. WYXX, which reaches the far south suburbs of Chicago and mostly rural areas, has sequed to a humorous dance hits format called “Party 103.1”, very similar to Big City’s former “Energy 92-7&5” which went to SBS in an LMA arrangement two weeks ago. Energy PD Chris Shebel (still working for Big City and WYXX until it is officially sold) is the station voice and programmer, and has created laughable liners with phrases like “No commercials ‘cause we’re for sale… Party 103.1” and “There’s nothing wrong with your cows. Cows milk better with Party 103.1… Mmmmoooo!”.  Big City is reportedly looking for $3 to $5 million for WYXX, which may or may not go to NextMedia. For the time being, listeners in the station’s limited signal range can enjoy unusual antics and a brief reprise of the “dance hits” format.”
