Thursday’s Movie Night Features Walk The Line

Wednesday, January 19th, 2011 by Amanda Nolan

It’s the first movie night of the spring semester, and we’ve chosen Walk The Line, the 2005 biographical drama directed by James Mangold. The film is based on the life of country music artist Johnny Cash, played by Academy Award nominated actor Joaquin Phoenix. Much of the focus in the movie is on Cash’s youth, his romance with June Carter (played by actress Reese Witherspoon), his ascent to the country music scene, and how all of these factors impacted his life. Walk The Line was nominated for five Academy Awards including Best Actor (Joaquin Phoenix) and Best Actress (Reese Witherspoon).

You know the drill – we provide the popcorn. All you need to do is stop by!

WLOY Movie Night presents The Dark Side of Oz

Wednesday, December 8th, 2010 by Amanda Nolan

This Thursday Dec 10 WLOY is hosting its last Coffeehouse movie night of the year! Come to the Reading Room at 9pm to watch The Wizard of Oz like you’ve never seen before!

We’re showing The Dark Side of Oz, which refers to the auditory pairing of 1973 Pink Floyd album Dark Side of the Moon with the visual portion of the 1939 film The Wizard of Oz. Once paired at the end of the MGM lion’s third roar, the album and the film appear to correspond with one another, creating one overall “trippy” experience!

It’s your last chance to relax before the onslaught of finals, so come and let WLOY provide the popcorn and the entertainment.

Join WLOY in the Mayor’s Christmas Parade!

Wednesday, December 1st, 2010 by Amanda Nolan

This year WLOY was invited to be in the 38th Annual Mayor’s Christmas Parade this Sunday December 5! What better way to get in the holiday spirit than to join the WLOY van in its Yuletide journey. The parade departs from Baltimore Polytechnic High School parking lot (where Loyola buses meet you to go to the Ridley Athletic Complex) at 2pm. From there, the parade will follow Falls Road south to 36th Street in Hampden (The Avenue), turn East on 36th Street and North on Chestnut Ave, ending at 37th and Chestnut. WLOY is very excited to represent Loyola in this year’s parade, and we’re proud to say that we will be the only non-commercial media operation involved in one of Baltimore’s great traditions!

35 Years of Loyola Radio!

Thursday, November 18th, 2010 by The Professor

We’re celebrating 35 years of radio at Loyola this Saturday! It’s the exact day in 1975 when WVLC (The Voice of Loyola College) first signed on to broadcast in the cafeteria. It evolved into WLCR and ran until the mid 1990s before being wiped out in the renovation of the Student Center. In 2002 we restarted WLOY and in March of 2003 we went 24/7/365 and haven’t looked back. Now we are, along with lots of station alumni from the 70’s and 80’s. Listen in from 1-7pm on Saturday to check out all the DJs as they get back on the air again! We’ve got their original jingle and even their original vinyl!
