You are visiting the 60’s & Beyond internet radio station’s website. We’re an internet radio station that brings you a strong lineup of music from the early 1960’s all the way to some modern day music. Our focus is on the artists and the music from the 60’s, 70’s, and 80’s. Additionally, we’ve included later offerings from those artists as well as newer music from current artists that have the “throwback” sound of those years. Examples are later music from the Stephen Stills band called The Rides and their 2013 CD “Can’t Get Enough” and their 2016 CD “Pierced Arrow” as well as a 2016 album from Santana titled “IV”. These are excellent examples of type of music that fits in our core 60s-80s lineup because they are from artists of that time period and their music is still in that style. Newer music by older artists isn’t always popular and many listeners may not known an older artist has put out new music. At 60’s & Beyond, we want to present new music from these older artists to our listeners.
Here at 60’s & Beyond we share our love of music with our listeners. We pick the music selections that enable our listeners to feel, have an emotional reactions, and escape for awhile from the day’s stresses.

Update 1 December
On November 1st I reported that I was facing the loss of my “day job”. Well on November 17th, after 26 years at the same job and over 40+ years in the same field, I was laid off. It is not as bad as it sounds because I was probably going to retire within a year but it does impact how I operate 60’s & Beyond. First off, I need to look for revenue sources (advertising) to offset station costs. I also want to work on increasing listenership but of course that adds more expenses. But I’ll spend December and January coming up with a plan to grow 60’s & Beyond in both listeners and revenue.
In November we received $105 in donations from listeners to help us keep our station on the air. Thank you very much for your help. That was a big increase compared with the $0 in donations we received in October. With our current expenses running over $300 per month these contributions really helped and we appreciate your support. If you like what we have to offer, please consider making a donation to 60’s & Beyond (use donation button on this page). We have a goal of $500 per month, that’s only 50 listeners donating $10 in a month (we had 27,653 unique listeners in November!). Once we reach that goal, we can expand live D.J. support and improve our services. Please help us out.
We enjoy running the station as well as finding great music for our listeners (added 54 new tracks in November) and we hope our listeners appreciate the diversity of our programming and the depth of music selection. Our listener hours are high for a very small station (51,124 worldwide hours in July, 56,762 in August, 59,315 in September, 57,822 in October, and 57,755 in November) and we hope that increases as a result of our popularity. You can help us out by letting your friends know about our station and you can also share our Facebook page (60’s & Beyond) on your Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter accounts. Spread the word!
As always, we want you to know that we love bringing you the music that you want to hear and we appreciate any feedback you provide. Go to our “Contact Us!” page and let us know what’s on your mind. Your positive/negative input is always solicited and appreciated.
