Studio Seizure: Mongoloidian Glow

Monday, February 20th, 2017 by The Professor

This week we hand the studio over to the ladies of Mongoloidian Glow! Dark and industrial, passionate, sonic and raw, with a sense of playfulness, Baltimore-based, Mongoloidian Glow, known for their explosive live performances, is made up of two women-Annbidextrious, on bass/guitar and Katha (kay-tha) on drums, with both harmonizing on vocals. The sound created by these women is massive as if listening to a five-piece band. Listen in and see what sort of a playlist they’ve got for us. Early indications include polkas, The Smiths, Stone Roses and much more. Hosted this week by Earl Crown from WLOY’s Crucial Cuts.

Hannibal Buress Interview

Wednesday, October 5th, 2016 by The Professor

hannibal-buress-color-2-courtesy-of-comedy-central-jpg It started with a tweet by Hannibal (@hannibalburess) asking if anyone in the Baltimore/DC area wanted to have him come on their show and rap. Challenge accepted, intrepid DJ Matt Weinberg ’17 chased the dream. A few hours later, arrangements were being made and the next morning we had Hannibal on the phone from DC. He didn’t rap, but he did talk about a lot of things – from kicking (or maybe not) Flavor Flav in the face to helping Matt and co-host Mike Dayao ’18 name their show. It’s now officially “The Garbage Can and The Man”, in case you’re wondering. Hannibal Buress will be in Baltimore for a show at the Meyerhoff tomorrow night, but for now, you can hear him here!

Swamp Cabbage Interview

Monday, October 3rd, 2016 by The Professor

Swamp Cabbage Jive CDIt’s taken several tries to catch the slippery Swamp Cabbage and get them in the studio. We’ve had them play a show in Florida, had Walter Parks stop by a couple of times solo, waved “Hi” to Jagoda on the LIE, but Jim just won’t leave the swamp. Finally, we did it. I’m still not quite sure what happened, or if we actually talked about music because we were laughing so much. One thing is sure, if they ever decide to put away the Greco-Roman wrestling costumes and dock the iron lung, Swamp Cabbage has a second career in comedy. Listen in as Walter Parks, Jagoda and the ever-elusive Jim DeVito talk Swamp Cabbage, the honor of playing Katz’s Deli and mis-translating Spanish.

Metalachi Studio Seizure 9/9/16

Monday, September 19th, 2016 by The Professor

metalachi-outside-wloy How do you explain the brilliant madness that is Metalachi? And, more to the point, who in their right mind would give them control of a radio station?! We did. For 90 minutes the station was seized by a mad mix of heavy metal, mariachi music and George Michael… Yes, seriously. The band stopped by on the second night of their East Coast tour to hang out with our GM Tara and give her a dose of their show. Not only did they select all the music for the show, they even allowed us to play the advance version of their cover of Motorhead’s “Ace of Spades” which will be appearing on their upcoming second album, shockingly titled “Dos”. We will have some video and more photos to follow, but for now, we’re just busy trying to find the N’Sync bobble heads.

Show list:
Baby Got Back- Sir Mix Lot
She Blinded me with Science – Thomas “I live in Baltimore now” Dolby
Careless Whisper – George Michael
Ember City- Mastadon
Remember the Time- Michael Jackson
Have You Ever Loved a Woman- Bryan Adams
Tits- John Paragon (actually we couldn’t play this one for obvious reasons, but they wanted to)
Final Countdown- Europe
Holy Diver- Dio

Concert Review: Modern Baseball @ Baltimore Soundstage (Baltimore, MD) & The Fillmore (Philadelphia, Pennsylvania)

Monday, July 4th, 2016 by Margaret Jokoh

Review by: Tara Howell

Right after MoBo surprise released The Perfect Cast EP, I had the chance to see them for the first time at my favorite Baltimore venue, Ottobar, in the fall of 2015. More than any other concert I’ve been to, it felt like a group therapy session. In a room full of strangers, I’ve never felt more connected. It was at this concert that I really, really realized not only how powerful music is, but how special this band really is. (more…)
