ABOUT:

WELCOME TO ALBUM ROCK WXYG.

If you grew up listening to underground, progressive rock, free form radio, or if you're just discovering or re-discovering the golden age of rock for the first time, we think you will be really happy that you have finally found your radio home.

We are returning to a better time when radio played all the great music - GENRES BE DAMNED!  Thousands and thousands of the greatest album rock songs ever recorded.  This is not a classic rock station where they play the same 200 songs over and over again.  This is album rock WXYG.

You will be able to listen to us over the air or you can tune in to our high quality internet stream.  Please feel free to suggest your favorite songs to us.  We will do our best to play them for you.  We welcome your suggestions and feedback.  Please let us know how we're doing.  The folks here at album rock "The Goat" who by the way are local owners and operators, hope that you love our new broadcast adventure as much as we love bringing it to you.  Now presenting a new age in broadcast radio - radio that returns the power of great music TO THE PEOPLE.

Please enjoy....Ladies and Gentlemen - ALBUM ROCK WXYG.
