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 July 18, 2016

Since the landscape of internet radio has changed at the beginning of the year, it is much more expensive to operate a station today than it was in the past. With that in mind, if you like our music selection and station, we would like our listeners to consider making periodic donations to our station via Paypal to help us cover the expenses. This will help us stay on the air and bring you what we hope is the musical selection and depth that keeps us fresh and keeps us at the top of your list of favorite internet radio stations. Make sure you let us know how we’re doing by going to our Facebook Page (60’s & Beyond) and leaving us some feedback (and a Like).
As of July 18th we have not received a single donation for helping us to keep our station on the air. While we enjoy running the station as well as finding great music for our listeners, we lose motivation when it seems that no one appreciates the diversity of our programming and the depth of music selection. We spend $200 – $300 per month on this “hobby” and think we have a better selection that other “main stream” offerings such as SiriusXM Radio, which costs a significant amount of money per year. We are asking our listeners to support us through a small monthly donation so we can keep 60’s & Beyond on the air and growing. For the remainder of July and the beginning of August we are asking our listeners to think about making a monthly donation of $2 – $10 per month to our station so we can keep going and improve our offerings. If you like what we have to offer please consider making a small monthly donation to 60’s & Beyond (use donation button on this page). Our goal is to reach a monthly recurring goal of $500 per month. Once we reach that goal, we can expand live D.J. support and improve our services. Please help us out.
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.
