Listen To Richie Phillips Newest Parody on the Health Care Act


If you watched the video of when Richie Phillips stopped by the studio, you heard that he would let us know when he was going to release a new parody song, and he’s gone and done it! And he’s said we could share it with you here and on our streaming station X1. So without further ado, here is his latest called “Starting Over”.

Updates to X1


Just to get folks up to speed on things, we’ve been doing some work in the background. One thing is we  added new music to the rotation of the station. Some Creed and Tool and a couple others. So when you listen you should hear them come up now! We also made it a little easier to listen as well! We created a listen live page that is mobile friendly. So you can listen on your mobile devices. We do have plans to have better mobile access, but that is in the future so stay tuned for that.

As always, we’ll have Geek Show, but we’re going to be adding a couple more programs to the station as well. We’re working on finalizing those. We hope that you like these new improvements and we would love to hear from you, what you think of them. Or if you have ideas, please share them.

We also want to take this opportunity to thank the people who are listening and reading. We hope that the content we are posting and creating is entertaining for you. Thanks for visiting and listening to X1 – Albany’s Online Rock!

Richie Phillips Stops By The X1 Studio


Richie Phillips stopped by for a visit to check out the studio, but we couldn’t let him leave without talking to him on the air about what he’s been up to, what he thinks about the recent changes that have happened in the Albany radio market, and maybe a podcast in his future? 

Bill Paxton b. May 17, 1955, d. Feb 25, 2017


It’s with great sadness that we report the loss of one of Hollywood’s brightest actors, Bill Paxton, star of such movie as Aliens, Weird  Science, and The Terminator, has passed at the age of 61 due to complications from surgery.

It was announced today by his family and and comes as a shock to many that another well known actor had passed as such a relatively young age.

We at X1 were all entertained by his characters and his love of his craft. And we want to send our deepest condolences to his family and friends. It will be a long time before some one else like him shines as bright as him.

Watch Korean Girls Try American BBQ


Some here in America envy what other countries have. I personally love English and Scottish food, even though I was brought up in an Italian household and believe pizza is a major food group! But we should keep in mind, that we are the envy to other countries for what we have too. Like our Barbecued food. It’s something new for Koreans and these girls let us know what they think about some of our most popular BBQ foods. Read the rest of this entry

Have A Look Inside QuakeCon


You know those days where everything just goes wrong and you’re so stressed you have to do something to get unwound? Some people have a few drinks, other work out. I like blowing people up! Oh yeah, nothing like throwing some rockets at someone and seeing their gibs go flying! I’m talking about the first person shooter Quake 3 Arena of course! But wouldn’t you want to do that with a whole building full of people gunning after you too? You can, and it’s called QuakeCon! The country’s biggest LAN party! Read the rest of this entry
