Someone needs to write a good story about the history of this little station that could.

Where exactly was Driftwood? I'm pretty sure they were on the south side of Queen (around McCaul), but I'm looking for confirmation.

Also, was the store responsible for the short-lived Driftwood Music magazine that could be found around T.O. circa 1993?

Two things... 1. Great about the new link!!! Hopefully it'll help increase the traffic on the forum. 2. In response to orbit-55, you should sign-in to the forum each time you use it and then use the \"mark forum read\" feature in each subforum when you are finished reading each sub-forum. By doing t...

The new format is much better (and much more in line with every other forum out there). I'm surprised it's been so quiet since the change personally.

WOXY goes user-pay. :(

WOXY has gone user-pay unfortunately. $9.95/month USD. Not much different in price to satellite radio. Apparently they are having trouble convincing their advertisers who their listeners are, so this is a stop-gap measure to stay afloat until they work on their business plan a bit more. I've given t...
