WLOY staff members, Patricia and Tara, got to see The End of America. Don’t worry that’s just the band name of people who love part harmonies and Americana. These dudes hail from the great city of Philadelphia, but we got them to come Baltimore to give us an interview.

Our very own DJs, Leandra and Kelly, of As Told By Gingers were able to get an interview with Baltimore’s own Idle Gossip.

As Told By Gingers were the luckiest of gals to have these great guys at WLOY to interview them!
