Hampdenfest WLOY

WLOY will yet again be at Hampdenfest this year on Saturday, September 11th. We will be on The Avenue giving away FREE stuff (we would tell you but you have to stop by and say “hi” to find out!). HampdenFest began as a local community event, but in recent years has evolved into a neighborhood arts festival that draws visitors, as well as local residents, to enjoy the community of merchants on and around West 36th Street. Sponsored by the Hampden Village Merchants Association, in partnership with The Hampden Family Center, HampdenFest features 3 stages of music and art performances, an activity area for the kids, an emerging artists exhibit and a film festival, as well as four blocks of arts and crafts vendors, antiques, and other wares from a wide range of merchants and artists. Hampden itself has hundreds of local businesses which are consistently listed in Baltimore Magazine and the City Paper’s Best of Baltimore.

Interpol & Twin Tigers Concert

Thursday, August 5th, 2010 by Ryan Nisley

I was first introduced to Interpol in 2004 when I heard their album, Antics. I became fond of the band after listening to the album, but I admit I lost faith in them after Our Love to Admire (2007) received less praise than Antics. However, I think I need to revisit the album, now that I found a new appreciation for Interpol. I had always heard great things about Interpol’s live show, but it was difficult to ignore all the hype and avoid preconceived notions. I expected a great show and that is exactly what I got. Their sound filled the venue, reinforced by a brilliant light show. What impressed me was the balance between the vocals and instrument sound levels. The lyrics were clearly distinguishable over the rest of the band, not to mention that Paul Bank’s voice was perfect.

Both Feet In: JR

Sunday, August 1st, 2010 by The Professor

JR (Originally aired Aug. 1, 2010)

After more than 20 years of living on he streets, JR speaks to us from his home. He gives this advice to you: “Get all the education you can, soak it up…. do it for yourself, not for anybody else…” and talks about how he survived sleeping in the alleyways for so long. He also plays a few notes on his guitar, as music “soothes the soul.”

From the Vault: Michael Phelps and Loyola

Tuesday, July 20th, 2010 by The Professor

Showing of the main On Air studio

Picture 1 of 6

We all know how much Michael achieved at the 2004 Olympics. The records set and shattered, and the shine of all that Olympic gold. What a lot of folks don’t know is the connection to Loyola. Michael was a volunteer swimming coach at Loyola in 2004, and came back to do a swimming demonstration and discussion in September BEFORE going off to achieve Olympic fame (do 14 medals constitute fame or demi-god status?) We just found a few photos and somewhere we even have audio from the press conference…

Middle Grades Radio Boot Camp

Tuesday, July 13th, 2010 by The Professor

It’s time for this year’s Middle Grades Partnership summer radio boot camp at WLOY! This year’s class is a bit smaller, at 13, but they’re already having a blast. Students come in for a 2 day session. Day 1 is a discussion of the process of radio programming and production, a chance to select and read news stories live on the air and planning for a feature story.

Over the course of the next week, the students work independently to develop their very own feature story on a topic of their choosing. For Day 2 the students sit down and review their written feature, convert it to a radio text and record it. We add in production elements from sound effects to music beds in order to enhance their work. Once complete, you’ll be able to hear their stories on the air on WLOY and right here on the website.

This is our 3rd year of the program and it’s always a ton of fun to give rising 9th graders a chance to experience something new and special Stay tuned for their finished works and tune in on the 13th and 14th to WLOY at 11am to hear their live news reads.
