WIXO is now located in Peoria, Illinois, where it’s "105.7 The X." In New Orleans, 98.5 is now WYLD, one of the top stations in the market, broadcasting an Urban Adult Contemporary format. The old WIXO went dark in September 1974, because they didn’t have any listeners and thus no revenue coming in. Few people in the New Orleans market had FM radios at the time, apparently. Anyway, here’s their Top Ten from May 25, 1973.
- Sylvia, “Pillow Talk”
- The Spinners, “One Of A Kind (Love Affair)”
- The Doobie Brothers, “Long Train Runnin'”
- Three Dog Night, “Shambala”
- Barry White, “I’m Gonna Love You Just A Little Bit More Baby”
- Paul McCartney & Wings, “My Love”
- Jim Stafford, “Swamp Witch”
- Clint Holmes, “Playground In My Mind”
- Ohio Players, “Funky Worm”
- The Edgar Winter Group, “Frankenstein”
And that’s Top Ten Tuesday for May 24, 2022.
