Jonas Carping Interview

Tuesday, November 10th, 2020 by The Professor

By: Aly Martinez, Music Director
I had the pleasure of interviewing Jonas Carping, a folk (or Americana or ?) artist from Sweden about his new album “Strangers.” In the interview we really went in depth on inspiration and the process of making music. Jonas gave great insight on the importance of being true to the music and having everything be as real and raw as possible. We also discussed the importance of family and friends and the way they have shaped his career and music. We also talked about how he has been doing with the pandemic and how that has affected his life and career. Overall we had a very interesting conversation about music and the inspiration behind his work.

Voices of COVID-19 Student Project

Saturday, May 2nd, 2020 by The Professor

Students in Professor Glick’s Radio Storytelling class started this semester with the plan to create a series of pieces focusing on different voices of Loyola and then a series of community voices. Then… things changed…a lot. When faced with the rapid changes and working from home, Professor Glick reoriented the class to tell their stories from where they were. So while we still have voices of Loyola, they are now voices from around the country and community. Listen in as the students report on healthcare providers, businesses, shopping, graduation and much more. Huge kudos to the students and Professor Glick from turning chaos into a fantastic set of voices and reports from around the country.

Anchors: Alex Mitsopoulos (’22) & Julianna Capuano (’22)
Executive Producers: Ryan Whitley (’21) & Bridgett Ballard (’20)
