Welcome to WAKYOnline's home page! Like our dancers? Yeah, the guy doesn't still doesn't have it all together! Anyway, September 8, 2008 we celebrated our third birthday, and we've experienced alot of growing pains in our three years (including being offline for months at at time!). But getting to meet the WAKY and WKLO greats and establishing friendships with them is what has made this all a rewarding experience. And many of them have provided liners and services immeasurable. They, along with the mentorship of John Quincy have really made this all possible. And it goes without saying kudos go to the WAKYOnline support crew who have helped with the professionalism of the sound and production (now if we can just eliminate ALL the dead-air!). What you'll find on this page will be not only programming links and photos, but this site serves as a one-stop for WAKYOnline info.
Just to provide an update, we regret that WAKYOnline is offline for the undetermined future, due to reasons beyond our control. Along the way, due to financial reasons, our Live365 account went into limbo, during which time (and for a totally bizarre reason) a site for 'Teacup Yorkies' bought the domain '', so that may explain why some of you may be running across that. When we are able to go back online, we will still be WAKYOnline, but more than likely we will be found at '', or '', or some other URL. We certainly hope this occurs in 2010, but in the meantime continue to visit and for all your memories of Kentuckiana radio!!!


A big thanks goes to John Quincy, Cat Michaels, former CBC E'town GM John Wright, Brian Walker, Kerry Smith, Daniel Yount (Derrek Daniels) and Mike Wolfe of "The Slam-Zone". And of course, recreating the magic has been Johnny Randolph, Jason O'Brien, Dude Walker, Gary Burbank, Coyote Calhoun, Tim Tyler, Mike Griffin, Ben Pflederer (Rudy Ratfink), Mason Lee Dixon, Steven Lee Cook, Bob Moody, and last but certainly not least, our own Duke of Louisville, Bill Bailey.

  We're glad to be back, albeit on a smaller scale for the time being, thanks to actions by the Copyright Royalties Board. We stayed away as long as we could stand it. Operating two stations can be costly, but we felt our loyal listeners had done without long enough. Back are the jingles, the music, the liners and  very soon the airchecks will be back. As for our homepage, you can still feel free to grab a hard hat and tour the page from time to time! We can't guarantee everything will work right off the bat, but with a measure of patience, we'll all watch this phase of WAKYOnline grow as the station has, into one of the fastest growing stations on the internet...

...and for that, we thank you!
