The X-Cast: Geek Show Episode 49 – Full Sized Groot


BJ and I are back and we have more of the geeky stuff you like! We’re talking The Flash’s big reveal, The Defenders show us some bad guys, and Fox has 3 movies on deck for us in 2018! (more…)

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!
