We sent Phil and Brandon to Sweetlife Festival at Merriweather Post Pavilion to shoot some photos and check out some bands. It’s fair to say they enjoyed the shows, meeting and interviewing some great acts and enjoying a very cool festival. From a wide variety of food vendors to green power companies, the whole vibe was green, friendly and fun. Brandon covered Day 1, so Phil does Day 2: (more…)

Intrepid WLOY staffers Brandon Newby ’15 and Phil Dayao ’16 tracked down Lightshow while covering the weekend long Sweetlife Festival at Merriweather Post Pavilion May 30/31st. While they were unable to work the audio recorder correctly (head shakes…) they DID get the whole thing on video so there ya go.

The President’s Cup 2015 All Star Game took place April 18th inside Oriole Park at Camden Yards. WLOY’s live play by play team of Justin Thomas ’15, Bobby Trosset ’16 and Brendan Peirce ’17 called the game and even had a sit down chat with Baltimore City Council President Jack Young in between the 3rd and 4th innings. We had a problem with our recording at the startup so you’ll be joining the game already in progress for the second inning. The complete audio is below, enjoy!
The President’s Cup aims to unite Baltimore’s youth by using baseball to bring together groups of high school students from different backgrounds that normally would not compete with one another. Practice began Saturday, April 4 the newly renovated Johns Hopkins baseball field with 25 players on each team composed of both public and private schools. The President’s Cup also represents everything Council President’s ongoing P.L.A.Y. (Productive Lives, Active Youth) campaign stands for. P.L.A.Y. provides Baltimore’s youth with a wide range of opportunities to strengthen their self-confidence, develop leadership skills, learn from positive role models, and be rewarded athletically for their academic achievements. P.L.A.Y. encourages them to thrive academically, socially and emotionally.
