Listener Comments and Reviews

What a refreshing station. I became really disgusted with the "loop" other radio stations were playing on a daily basis. Some of the songs played on your station, I forgot, existed.

Great JoB I love the oldies the way the station is produced keep it up please , when the other stations rejected the oldies you guys didnt , its refreshing to say the least, I used to work 25 yrs in radio on long island and all i can say is great jobs!!

Just was turned onto your station & I love it! It is now a pre-programmed setting on my car! Finally, no loop, haven't heard the same song twice (yet) and am hearing tunes that are terrific but not 'everyday'. Great job! Keep it up!

Wow, what a great radio station you are. I am so tired of the same songs on all the stations. Used to listen to CBS 101.1 until they got repetitive and stupid also . keep up the good work!
By: Bernadette on October 29, 2016

Enjoy the station so much that I'm afraid that it's going to go away! Please don't let that happen!
By: Bob Bange on June 5, 2017

So happy I found your radio station. It's my favorite along with 104.5 Hope Radio. Can't always get both stations, but still so happy I found the station. Out of the oldies or somewhat oldies stations that I can get, yours is the best!

I have been listening for the last four years and absolutely love the selection of music you play. I live in Bay Shore and.listen until I am out of range when in the car. Absolutely love the limited commercial breaks. Keep it up and let me know if you need any help keeping the station on the air. I will help however I can.

I heard an instrumental rendition of jingle bells today, Friday 12-15-17, can you tell me whom is the artist. Thank You.
By: Thomas Duignan on December 15, 2017

I listen to 88.1 literally all day and have put multiple people onto this amazing station. Since Monday the station has been lost, I am now lost too. Is this because holiday school closure??
By: Emily on December 20, 2017

What happened to the signal? Can't get it anymore!
By: Thomas Duignan on December 20, 2017

I love the music that is being play the oldies music and a lot of times I can sing along... thanks for this station...but I can't get it on the radios in my house and I wish I could... Your signal sometimes fades away as I am driving.
By: Valerie Mason on February 17, 2019

I love your station, I pick it up on the S/S by the Wantagh Parkway till I get home in western Suffolk. Do you have a playlist on line? Some of the music is from the time I was growing up in queens and I try to find the titles with no luck. Keep up the good work!!
By: Jeff on March 25, 2019

What a great station filled with memorable music.... Do you have a streaming channel..? I commute and would like to listen at work and share this wonderful station with my friends that live out of range. My favorite new station thanks again for providing memories...

The best music radio station on the air, no other station comes even close, this may be the one one ever.. Is there a list of songs that you play so listeners can identify them, some are new to the listener? Keep up the great work. Herb

By: michael on March 20, 2023

hello WXBA 88.1 I live in Masapequa And can you please improve your signal coverage WXBA 88.1 Plays the best music than any other radio station your radio station is way to weak to have a good signal I'd recommend WXBA to improve their signal coverage I know WXBA broadcasts on 180 watts id recommend a Power increase to 699 watts
By: Isarel on May 13, 2023

I have been listening for many years but, lately have been disenchanted by the DJ in the ng and the ,new line up. If I wanted to listen to head banging music there are stations that play this quality of music. Also really do not care to listen to the morning DJ;s pick of favorite songs while interrupting the normal line up. Sorry you have allowed this to happen.
By: John on October 31, 2023

First l love your station for all the reasons people mentioned. However, you played a song in late summer about being home on Christmas Eve… only place I want to be. I’ve searched endlessly and can’t find it. Can anyone help??
By: Jan on December 24, 2023

What the hell is going on there. These “dj’s are repulsive. Interrupting a song. A lot of dead air. Not good.
