Quarantine Takeover – Saleem

Sunday, July 26th, 2020 by The Professor

This week’s Quarantine Takeover is a study in the sounds of Hip Hop protest. Saleem is bringing back the songs that inspired him and will keep protesters fueled up to demand change in the world. I could introduce him to you as Saleem the emcee, or I could introduce you to him as Saleem the producer. However I think the most apropos title would be Saleem, the dopest emcee on production! Starting out with an ASRX-PRO and a microphone, Saleem has been blazing his trail through hip-hop’s indie scene for several years. Performing with luminaries such as Common, The Roots, KRS-One, Rakim, and The Wu-Tang clan, to name a few, tends to hone and sharpen your skills. These experiences led him to craft his highly regarded debut album, Hip-Hop Revisited. A bold title for a bold project that served as a welcome, and refreshing, introduction into the world of this multifaceted artist; or as one writer described him, “The embodiment of hip-hop’s evolution.”

Quarantine Takeover – Doc Pine & Bobby

Tuesday, July 21st, 2020 by The Professor

This week we lost control of the studio to Doc Pine and his tiny sidekick Bobby. We’re not sure how but sit back and enjoy Bobby giving Doc Pine the respect he deserves. Doc Pine combines creepy old Appalachian music, off kilter honky-tonk, murder ballads, yodeling, heavy rock jingles, and junkyard blues stomps in the hope of one day getting invited to the Sadie Hawkins Dance. He claims his songs “have been filtered through ten feet of sugar maple charcoal, which imparts a distinct smoothness to the music.” He has been cleared of all charges pertaining to a Louisiana bank heist in the summer of ‘09.

Quarantine Takeover Show – 7th Order

Friday, July 3rd, 2020 by The Professor

This week’s Quarantine Takeover show comes from overseas again! This time from the magical land of Hawai’i! We welcome Daniel Jones of the band 7th Order recording his show on the side of Kilahuea in the town of Volcano. The show is a tribute to late guitarist Jesse Ed Davis, who played with the pantheon of great rockers in the 60s and 70s.

Their first recording sessions took place in December 2001 but 7th Order’s roots are much deeper. The band has, at various times, been joined by veteran British guitarist Martin Pugh (formally of the 60’s British band, Steamhammer, as well as Armageddon with The Yardbirds vocalist Keith Relf, and “The Rod Stewart Album” with Ron Wood & Keith Emerson), drummer Tim Kelliher (of Randy Hansen’s Machine Gun), and legendary American rock guitarist Geoff Thorpe (of Vicious Rumors). Reminiscent of blues-rock bands like The Rolling Stones & The Yardbirds, with progressive undertones ala Led Zeppelin, there’s something in there for all of you. Their most recent release (June 2020) is a track titled “Voyager”, a tribute to the late American guitarist, Ronnie Montrose – and is a benefit for the incredible Sweet Relief Musicians Fund.

Quarantine Takeover Show – Breakforth

Tuesday, May 12th, 2020 by The Professor

This week’s Quarantine Takeover show is hosted by bassist, lead singer and former WLOY DJ Matt Weitzel! Breakforth is a Hard Rock/Post Grunge band with Heavy Metal influences from Baltimore, Maryland. Driving the heart of Breakforth is the chest thumping, gut busting, drum work of Seth Champness Smith. This is complimented by the catchy, yet hard hitting, and unapologetic guitars of Paul Gambichler. Rounding out Breakforth is the rock solid bass grooves and powerful, melodic vocals of Matt Weitzel. The most important thing to us is the music. Our never ending goal is to Breakforth from the norm and bring to the table music that moves people physically and emotionally and lyrics that can inspire others just as our heroes have inspired us. So prepare to jam with one of the hardest rocking bands in the Baltimore music scene. Matt’s going heavy with the show as you can guess, but he’s a pro – currently working at a hard rock FM station here in town that you can find between 97-99 on the dial 🙂 What’s he going to play you ask? That seems like a spoiler so you’ll have to click to see more if you want. Better yet, listen in to find out why he picked these tracks and what’s up with the band! (more…)

Quarantine Takeover Show – Lockemy

Sunday, May 3rd, 2020 by The Professor

Welcome to the first of our new series of Quarantine Takeover shows! We were inspired by our semi-regular Studio Seizure shows on Monday nights combined with the magic of quarantined lockdown to create something new. While the Studio Seizure normally has an artist or band coming into the station and being interviewed while they select all the music for an hour, it just isn’t practical in a time of social distancing and campus closures. So… we decided to let the artists REALLY take over and send us a complete 1 hour show with their influences, favorite bands, musicians you really should hear and (as a bonus) some of their own music and inspirations. We asked around and we have a lot of great local artists building shows for us now and we may just keep this going long after lockdown is lifted in 2028, or whenever. So, without further ado… our first Quarantine Takeover show will be airing Tuesday at 7pm presented by Lockemy and featuring:

Stone Temple Pilots – Sex Type Thing – Atlantic Records
Silverchair – Point of View – Sony Music
Lockemy – In One Place – Self
Incubus – Dig – Island
Depeche Mode – Precious – A Whole Bunch
Andrew Belle – Dark Matter – Collide
Lockemy – The Fog – Self
Seal – Colour – ZTT Records
Beck – Heart is a Drum – Geffen
Lockemy – Little Things – Self
Mutemath – Equals – Warner Brothers
Young The Giant – Mind Over Matter – Fueled By Ramen
Lockemy – Just Maybe – Self

Lockemy has a smart social media mind and keeps it simple so whether it’s Instagram, Facebook, Tik Tok or Twitter you just search for Lockemyofficial and you’ll find him!

If you missed it, the show is in our archives!

Studio Seizure with The Crowning

Monday, April 16th, 2018 by The Professor

Steph got to spend some time with Stroudsburg, PA’s The Crowning for our most recent Studio Seizure. While they’re a bit heavier than her usual Vineyard Vibes show, she had a great time talking about the band, their tour and influences. Micah (Vocals, Guitar) and Ty (Bass) stopped in after their Baltimore gig and hung out with Steph for over an hour. The show ran long so we have an edited version playing on the air, but you lucky fans can hear the full 70 minutes here
