Internet radio station WOXY shuts down, which bills itself as the future of rock and roll, suspended operations because of lack of funding.

“Due to current economic realities and the lack of ongoing funding for WOXY’s operations, we’ve been forced to suspend our live broadcasts as of March 23rd. We’re continuing to explore options to keep The Future of Rock and Roll alive,” the Internet station’s site reads.

This, of course, is very disheartening news. Let’s hope the Austin-based station can get up and running again.

The video below of Besnard Lakes performing And This is What We Call Progress was taken from a recent WOXY performance during South By Southwest.
