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…)

What Albums Are We Listening To This Week?

Thursday, November 14th, 2013 by Billy Dries

Beach_House_-_BloomKait Connaughton - Beach HouseBloom

Boasting the emerging ethereal/dream pop genre, Baltimore’s very own Beach House transcend the musical experience via their use of synthesized instruments and deep, emotion-fueled, whispering female vocals. Pick up this album and change your music listening experience; you won’t regret it.
