What was a Tuesday morning at WLOY before Kathryn O’Brien and Rachel Stoczko? It was good, but it wasn’t this good. Tune in Tuesdays from 10-12pm for incredible playlists and unmatched charisma — all from two Loyola first years. That’s right. Our first year DJs are slaying it this year. Get with the program, everyone.

As our Production Manager, Patricia, would say, “It’s that time of the month again!” Our January DJs of the Month are Matt and Ian of Two College Kids, which airs Thursday mornings from 11-12pm. Matt joined us last semester and Ian just two weeks ago, but they’ve already proven to be incredible on-air personalities with a knack for the rock classics.
Who’s going to win for February? Stay tuned to find out!

Sundays at 11am check out DJ Seth Michaels on The Currency Exchange as he explores a different world of music each week. Whether its the Samba or vintage Ragas, there’s always something interesting going on. Sometimes he has a guest musician and sometimes a world-weary traveler drops a pile of CDs at his door.

It’s Christmas so you know it’s time for the annual Ultimate Christmas Show on WLOY! Join Nick Centanni for 3 hours on Christmas Eve and another 3 hours on Christmas Day.

All right here to keep you company on WLOY!
