Blast From The Past

February 24, 2015 | By

Over Presidents’ Day weekend many familiar faces filled the WXCI station. Every year we host an alumni weekend where past DJs travel back to WXCI to play shows throughout the weekend. Many of our current DJs got a chance to mingle and discuss successful radio tactics with previous DJs. Although there was a forecast of snow, there was a great turnout. We are thankful for everyone who made this reunion a success! We look forward to seeing everyone again next year!
