Jack Armstrong at the 1988 WIXY/WMJI Reunion. This week we hear the
actual WIXY, with Terry Stevens at the legendary station in 1972.
Stevens came to WIXY in
1971 from KFMX Omaha, Nebraska where he was known as Jerry Thomas.
Stevens spent four years as the legendary WIXY 1260 before moving to
Cleveland rival WHK in 1975. He was later heard on Chicago stations
