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)
Reporters: Justin Strott (’21), Caroline Suozzi (’22), Emma Toomey (’21), Gabriella Pirisino (’21), Dominika Ortonowski (’20), Caroline Pierno (’20), Madeline Buscone (’21), Rachel Hoos (’22), Diana Jasany (’22)

Toronzo Cannon Interview 10/29/19

Tuesday, October 29th, 2019 by The Professor

Toronzo Cannon is coming to the area in a rare appearance at The Soundry in Columbia, MD on Saturday November 2nd. Since he has a full-time job driving a Chicago city bus, he only tours in weekend bursts and vacation days, making it a rare treat to get him in the area. Touring now on his excellent new release The Preacher, The Politician or The Pimp (Alligator Records), Toronzo is raising the bar again with a great live show and killer guitar work. We first met at the Lancaster Roots and Blues in 2016 (interview here) and he blew me away with the energy he put into a live show. Ahead of this weeks show Toronzo was able to squeeze in a quick interview on his lunch break! It’s well worth the trip to Columbia to check him out live and see why he’s in such high demand worldwide!
