Come wipe your very fresh post-playoff-season tears with our new Orioles shirts! The O’s will still be back next season so show your pride by picking one up. If the Orioles really disappointed you, you can still wear it to support your favorite radio station, WLOY! We even have some toasty new crewneck sweatshirts to keep you warm on these baseball-less nights. See, we are looking out for you in this tough time.

NEXT WEEK’S HASHTAG IS …. #wloystudybreak. We know that midterms, papers, and homework are stressful. That’s why you need a study break and WLOY wants to know what you do to unwind from some midterm craziness! So study hard, but also make sure to take some breaks for your sanity (and insta-likes)! Good Luck!

Release Date: 9/22/14
alt-J’s second studio album is more than just a collection of songs. It is a holistic work of art, which has lately become something of a rarity in popular music. This album not only succeeds musically, but also as a piece of poetry, and a true example of innovation in today’s music scene.

Claire Shaw and Chemaine Sharpe were our lucky winners yesterday! Claire Shaw was lucky enough to snag two tickets for the Ziggy Marley at Baltimore Soundstage this Monday! She caught As Told By Gingers at the right time. This wonderful show by our staff members Leandra and Kelly plays every Wednesday from 2:00-3:00pm and yesterday they were giving away tickets! Tuning in is only one way to win big time. Chemaine Sharpe attended last week’s Coffeehouse with Blind Man Leading. She had luck on her side with winning the raffle for ticket to “I Love Lucy” at the Hippodrome.
You, too, could win big at WLOY! Just listen in and attend some really cool events!

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!

Chet Faker Live
Show Date: 9/10/14
“You gotta know, I’m feeling love…” the repeated lyrics from Chet Fakers single, ‘Gold’, accurately describe how I feel about the Melbourne, Australia native and his self-produced music making it onto the charts. The relaxed twenty-three year old, Nicholas James Murphy, goes by the stage name of Chet Faker. As there is already an Australian musician by the name of Nick Murphy, he created this stage name in an ode to inspiring jazz musician Chet Baker. Faker took on the name when he uploaded his first cover of Blackstreet’s “No Diggity” in 2011.
