Featuring the return of Ed Stanley and Michelle! With a theme featuring movies, and a special focus on the James Bond 007 movies, expect a great show. Michelle will remind her dad that he’s getting old, and Ed will show her how those big round vinyl things play music. Tune in to her multi-generational mayhem!

Last week I was able to get in touch with another one of WLOY’s most recent alum, Jeff Malone, class of 2010. Once both a DJ and a staff member in the station, Jeff is now out in the “real world,” dealing with some of the post-graduate elements. One of the ways in which Jeff occupies his time was with the creation of his very own blog, which features reviews on SNL episodes, the best of 2010 and more! Find out more about Jeff and his blog after the jump!

Last week, I caught up with WLOY alum/current DJ, Nick Centanni, host of The Moldie Oldies, which plays every Wednesday from 10AM until noon. I tracked Nick down, asked him a couple of questions and got, well, some extremely elaborate answers. Read on to see how the class of 2010 graduate is doing while he sends us his show every week from the Nick-cave.

We’re celebrating 35 years of radio at Loyola this Saturday! It’s the exact day in 1975 when WVLC (The Voice of Loyola College) first signed on to broadcast in the cafeteria. It evolved into WLCR and ran until the mid 1990s before being wiped out in the renovation of the Student Center. In 2002 we restarted WLOY and in March of 2003 we went 24/7/365 and haven’t looked back. Now we are, along with lots of station alumni from the 70′s and 80′s. Listen in from 1-7pm on Saturday to check out all the DJs as they get back on the air again! We’ve got their original jingle and even their original vinyl!

We all know how much Michael achieved at the 2004 Olympics. The records set and shattered, and the shine of all that Olympic gold. What a lot of folks don’t know is the connection to Loyola. Michael was a volunteer swimming coach at Loyola in 2004, and came back to do a swimming demonstration and discussion in September BEFORE going off to achieve Olympic fame (do 14 medals constitute fame or demi-god status?) We just found a few photos and somewhere we even have audio from the press conference…

Hans at play. Since he is no longer a DJ, or even a student, we really have no explanation for this photo. It was recently discovered and we just felt it needed to be shared. We tell the monkeys not to feed Hans, but… they always do and it makes him so happy. It’s a wonder they let him leave Ghana.

Lance sheds a single tear in memory of the good times in Austin and all the graduating seniors of 2010. With thanks and great hopes for your futures, WLOY says goodbye to Eric “Hans” Sappington, Rich “The DJ” Rodrigues, Jeff “The X is Silent” Malone, Mike “The Red” Mennis, Jenna Mercadante, Brittany Sigler and Heather Doyle. We also wonder why only the guys got dorky nicknames.
You’re all leaving on a high note as Club of the Year! Not a bad way to go out. Congratulations and all the best for the future!! You will be missed. Well, maybe not Eric, but the rest of you certainly will be. Lance reminds Hans that what happens in Austin stays in Austin, unless you’re dumb enough to leave photos behind… which will be very helpful when soliciting alumni donations

The guys from Nightsbridge (including WLOY Alumni David “Mr. Fabulous” Gregory ’06) swung by WLOY for a sit-down with Eric Sappington before their triumphant stomping of the stage at The Recher. Their premiere show there crushed the other bands on the bill. Some simply hung their heads in shame in the crowd, while others quietly drifted off to new jobs selling funnel cakes at traveling fairs, anything to avoid playing music again.
