Friday, May 8th, 2020 by The Professor

I Never Knew Radio host and I Never Knew TV host Linton “Junior” Hinds (’06) found himself featured in the Jamaica Observer for his documentary story on roots tonics in Jamaica. In addition to hosting his weekly radio show here on WLOY, Junior has a massive catalog of videos on the history of Rastafarianism, African Diaspora, Reggae and Jamaican culture all housed on his YouTube channel. With more than 10 million views, it’s easy to understand why The Observer picked up on his work. More and more people are finding and sharing his important stories and interviews with artists, philosophers, medical professionals and more. Do yourself a favor and check out both the radio show (every Sunday 9-11am) and the YouTube channel. We know you’ll find yourself saying “I Never Knew…” more than once!

“Word on the Street” Gets More Press

Tuesday, January 8th, 2013 by The Professor

WOTS Issue 1We were pretty excited when the paper we support “Word on the Street” got a couple of recent mentions in the local press.  We were more excited when Marc Steiner interviewed members of the paper on his show on WEAA.  Now the paper has front page coverage in the Baltimore Sun!  Rumor has it that NBC is interested as well!  This is a great start to a new year!  You can support Word on the Street too!

WLOY and Word on the Street Highlighted

Thursday, December 6th, 2012 by The Professor

Nothing like some bonus press for the work we do. After a mention in the Baltimore Sun and front page coverage in the great DC street paper Street Sense, we follow it up with a piece in Loyola Magazine. It’s always good to let the rest of the world know we do more than just spin some records now and then!
