These two DJs are always rockin’ out on their show, It’s a Hard Rock Life. Their Wednesday show from 3:00-4:00pm is so rockin’ that they have just won DJs of the Month! They embody everything WLOY, which is being cool, fun, and having a great taste in music. These two cool cats also just went the extra nine yards and added an extra show called It’s a Harder Rock Life that features even more Hard Rock jams that airs every Saturday 12:00-1:00am. Matt and Ian even were at WLOY over the Summer to make more listeners happy year round. If you haven’t heard them yet, you have two chances… every week… LISTEN TO THEM!
Good Job, Matt and Nick!

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. You never know, unless you tune in!
