Start Your Engines...

   Inhailer Radio's Indie 500 goes full throttle from May 20th to May 27th, 2024!

This unprecedented countdown promises to be an unforgettable celebration of independent music and radio, paying homage to the rich histories and contributions of WOXY and WNKU, two stations that left an indelible mark on the Cincinnati music scene and beyond. 

The Indie 500 serves as a continuation of the legacy established by these iconic stations, carrying forward their spirit of discovery, innovation, and dedication to independent music.This year's event also marks a significant milestone as it represents a "passing of the baton" from 97X's Modern Rock 500 to Inhailer Radio's Indie 500.


Tune in each day from 10am-5pm Eastern to join in the fun!
