War Horse Tickets

Tuesday, January 14th, 2014 by The Professor

war horse
Once again, WLOY wants to send you to opening night at the Hippodrome! This time to see the remarkable theatrical version of War Horse on February 4th. Win tickets at our Thursday Coffeehouse events and during our Friday Live at Boulder shows.

A remarkable tale of courage, loyalty and friendship. England, 1914.

As World War One begins, Joey, young Albert’s beloved horse, is sold to the cavalry and shipped from England to France. He’s soon caught up in enemy fire, and fate takes him on an extraordinary journey, serving on both sides before finding himself alone in no man’s land. But Albert cannot forget Joey and, still not old enough to enlist, he embarks on a treacherous mission to find him and bring him home.

This powerfully moving and imaginative drama, filled with stirring music and songs, is a show of phenomenal inventiveness that is currently playing to packed houses in London and New York. At its heart are astonishing life-sized puppets created by South Africa’s Handspring Puppet Company, that bring to life breathing, galloping, charging horses strong enough for men to ride.

The performances are daily from 2/4-2/9, with 8:00pm shows during the week and 2 shows on Saturday (2 & 8pm) and Sunday (1:00 & 6:30pm). More details and tickets can be found here.

WLOY Picks Ten Christmas Classics

Friday, December 6th, 2013 by The Professor

DJ_Santa Well, maybe we picked 11, because we play music and can’t count.  Ok, give us a break.  We polled a few current and former staff members to see what they can’t live without at Christmas time.  You know, the music that makes them enjoy the season, not want to shove pencils in their ears if they have to hear it one more time (Elmo & Patsy, we’re looking at you).  And because we care about you, our listeners, we even threw in an iTunes link so you can add them to your own playlists at home (you’re welcome).  Here they are in no particular order, along with a reminder to get into the spirit of the season and share your gifts with others : (more…)

WLOY Coffee House Presents: Singer Song-writer Workshop with Claire Anthony

Wednesday, November 20th, 2013 by Joe Lomuti

Claire+Anthony+IMG_6259Last week we were graced with the enchanting sounds of Caleb Stine, but WLOY isn’t going to stop there! This Thursday, WLOY Coffee House Series hosts Claire Anthony, a young Baltimore singer song-writer. Claire’s soothing sound perfectly captures the ambiance of a cozy coffee house amidst a chilly November evening. However, although Claire will be performing her songs she also encourages all to share their own material. This is both a performance for the music lover, and workshop for those novice artists. It is a great opportunity to get feedback and improve your own material. So bring your guitar, or your rhymes, or maybe only your ears. Either way, the event begins Thursday evening, 9pm, in the third floor reading room. In the mean time, check out some of Claire’s music.
