WLOY has searched Loyola high–low, under–over, in–around, and have found them! The talents for this year’s WLOY Star Search competition have been chosen! There will be dance. There will be song. And there will be drama. Check out the list of acts below:
Branna Maher & Diego Galindo
Cecilia & Tessa Sugarman
Kevin Tenorio & Ren Macalalag
Chris Furino & Patricia Bryan
Amanda Fleck & Xavier Taylor
From this list WLOY will nominate the “Brightest Star” of the search– the most worthy star who will take home awesome prizes and merch! And if you are not a competitor you can still be named the “Victor of Chance”, as we will be raffling gift cards to local Baltimore eateries including: Evergreen Cafe, Cafe Hon, Charmery Ice Cream, and Roland Park Bagels. Also, WLOY will be showcasing a new performer, CT band Disable Time. Check them out on youtube!
All these festivities will commence April 24th, in McGuire Hall @ 8:30pm. Come by, support your friends, and win some prizes!

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…)
