The 2009 Modern Rock 500/

woxy_logo1_small is an alternative, independent, and freeform rock and roll radio station based in Cincinnati, Ohio. relies mainly on its own website to reach its listeners.

Setting up shop at an Oxford, Ohio radio station broadcasting at 97.7 FM, this newly formed «Modern Rock» station (quickly dubbed «The Future of Rock & Roll») immediately benefited from a large youthful audience at adjacent Miami University as well as listeners in urban and suburban areas of Cincinnati and Dayton, but a majority of its broadcast area was rural. The first song played when WOXY-FM made their transition to a modern rock format in September 1983 was «Sunday Bloody Sunday» by U2. This was also the very last song played by the station to close their terrestrial transmission.

THERE’S A NEW CHAMPION on the Modern Rock 500, our annual countdown of the greatest modern rock, alternative and indie music ever recorded. Here’s the Top 10 on this year’s list:
