WBXO Radio has created the IPad Fund for Ashly, a devoted listener of WBXO Radio. Known in the circles as Ashly From Atlanta, Ashly was unfortunately involved in a very serious automobile accident on April 3, 2013 leaving her with severe injuries. While she was severely injured, she continues to make progress towards her recovery. Her laptop was destroyed in the crash, leaving her with no way to listen to WBXO nor engage in other online activities.
It is with extreme saddness that WBXO reports the passing of Jean E. Carlson, wife of WBXO Master Carpenter, Richard Carlson. Jean, 55, of Hopewell Junction, New York, passed away on March 16th after a very brave struggle with cancer. We at WBXO Radio extend our condolences to her Husband, Richard, Daughter Emily and Son Gregory and ask that our listeners devote a moment of prayer in her memory.

WBXO has returned to the air after suffering severe storm damage from Hurricane Sandy. The station returned to the air with normal operations on both AM & FM and the internet.
A big round of applause goes out to our technical engineering staff headed up by Engineer Josh McCormick who all worked tirelessly over this past week to get us back up and running.
Due to damage from Hurricane Sandy, WBXO Radio is currently off the air. Once power is restored and repairs to the tower are completed, we'll be back on the air with Beekmans's favorite classic rock.
In the mean time the town of Beekman has declared a state of emergency. Below is the message from the Supervisor of the Town of Beekman, Matt Kennedy:
