Allen Stone Interview

Sunday, October 11th, 2015 by The Professor

2015.04.18: Allen Stone @ The Paramount Theatre, Seattle, WA Kat & Rae (of the infamous Kat & Rae Midday show) had a nice phone chat with Allen Stone about his upcoming show (11/11 make a wish!) at Baltimore Soundstage a few days ago. Allen survived their lightning round of questions and shared the experience of being an on-demand Uber driver, among the tasty tidbits. Is it the hats, or the hair that intrigues them more? You’ll have to listen in to find out. And ignore the digital whoops and bloops that our phone system made… sorry.

Check out the full interview:

College Radio Day!

Thursday, October 1st, 2015 by Allison Langley

CollegeRadioDay Wait for it!
This Friday, October 2nd is College Radio Day! Safe to say this is WLOY’s favorite and most coveted holiday. We are all celebrating the 5th year of College Radio Day.

We take this day to recognize the importance of college radio and the positive effect it has had on students throughout the years. It is a day to encourage us to change that dial to a college radio station (WLOY of course) and support them all around the country. College radio maintains and fosters so much creativity, as we don’t have the commercial binds the most popular stations have. We have the ability to be more free and more open to new music and new talent. Not only helping students to achieve but also musicians as well.

As with most of our favorite holidays we typically receive a gift, so in honor of this WLOY will be raffling off a turn-table with a couple choice records to help kick start your collection. Come to our Coffeehouse this Thursday, October 1st, (with Swampcandy) to get a jumpstart and purchase your raffle tickets. Or, stop by the WLOY table at Live @ Boulder on Friday and purchase tickets there!

Yay for College Radio Day!

WLOY Coffeehouse 10/1/15: Swampcandy

Thursday, October 1st, 2015 by Allison Langley

SwampCandy It’s the 1st WLOY late night event of October! We have the amazing Swampcandy playing our WLOY coffeehouse series this Thursday. Not only is it FREE but also we’ll be providing delicious snacks AND coffee.

Swamp candy is Ruben Dobbs on guitar and Joey Mitchell on the bass. They are described as a bluesy duo. Ruben Dobb’s, a Maryland farm boy, is Swampcandy’s lead vocalist and guitarist. He has more talent in his fingers alone than I could I possibly imagine. His voice is raw, a little rough, deep, and very real. Dobbs sings his bluesy lyrics with conviction and passion. Joey Mitchell is quite the instrumental talent, maneuvering through all genres and filling the gaps of this two-person band on bass. These two are able to create music that sounds like a fully fitted band is playing along side them.

Do not miss out on this opportunity to see this dope band perform! Check out some videos and their website to get acquainted with them if you’re not already huge fans! Swampcandy

Also, at the show we will be selling raffle tickets for WLOY’s, College Radio Day give away — a turntable with 8 records (including 3 from local label Friends Records) and a $30 gift certificate to Sound Garden in Fells Point – a pretty sweet prize, if we do say so ourselves! Hope to see you there this Thursday October 2nd, buying raffle tickets, sipping on coffee and enjoying the sweet, sweet Swampcandy Tunes.

St Paul & The Broken Bones Live 9/12/15

Wednesday, September 16th, 2015 by The Professor

Words & Photos by Katie Kazmierski ’18

saintpaul_rhl6 Paul Janeway of Saint Paul and the Broken Bones sauntered on stage in box-toed shoes almost more sparkly than the Rams Head lights. As he opened with the first song I knew that he wasn’t going to put on any ordinary old show, what with his incredible voice and an extremely talented band that compliments it.

Closing my eyes, I felt like I was transported back in time to the 60s when soul music was revolutionary. But instead of Otis Redding, opening my eyes I found Paul Janeway, who looks like just a normal guy—not someone you’d expect to have the extraordinarily powerful voice he does. Turns out he was once just that: a normal guy who worked as an Alabama bank teller. Lucky for us, he met current bassist Jesse Phillips (who Rachel interviews here!) in 2012 and together they embarked on a musical journey with the goal of making music that worked with Janeway’s smooth, soulful voice.
