Jonas Carping Interview

Tuesday, November 10th, 2020 by The Professor

By: Aly Martinez, Music Director
I had the pleasure of interviewing Jonas Carping, a folk (or Americana or ?) artist from Sweden about his new album “Strangers.” In the interview we really went in depth on inspiration and the process of making music. Jonas gave great insight on the importance of being true to the music and having everything be as real and raw as possible. We also discussed the importance of family and friends and the way they have shaped his career and music. We also talked about how he has been doing with the pandemic and how that has affected his life and career. Overall we had a very interesting conversation about music and the inspiration behind his work.

Album of the Week: Okey Dokey – “Once Upon One Time”

Friday, November 6th, 2020 by Ronnie Gruseck

Reviewed By: Anna Markulis

Released: October 23rd, 2020

Rate: 8/10

RIYL: Dent May, Infinite Bisous, Loving, Kid Bloom, Vista Kicks

Once Upon One Time is Okey Dokey’s third album and their most unique yet. With the help of Dave Harrington of Darkside, Chris Taylor of Grizzly Bear, and band members of The Shins and My Morning Jacket, this album embodies a variety of styles that come together perfectly.

“Big City” features a funky bassline that hooks the listener, while “Just You” experiments with a dream pop-inspired sound. “Wine Friends” is the perfect combination of an acoustic and dreamy sound, and “Feel Brand New” truly feels like a brand-new sound that features more influences of dream pop, as well as folk-rock.

Song of the Week: “Stumble On My Way” by Norah Jones

Monday, November 2nd, 2020 by Ronnie Gruseck

Reviewed By: Aly Martinez
This song has the same vibes as many of the other songs of the week. I think with the current environment, having chill music to listen to is definitely a necessity. This song has a soft sound and amazing vocals. It brings to you to a place where you can focus on the great lyrics and the mellow vibe of the song. If you need a break from the hustle and bustle of life, I would listen to this song.

Indispensable Oyster – Show 2

Tuesday, October 20th, 2020 by The Professor

Host: Prof. David Belz

Welcome to another episode of The Indispensable Oyster, a conversation with people of interest about subjects Loyola, Baltimore and beyond, produced by WLOY Radio in cooperation with Right Brain Creative Services. Join our host author and professor David Belz for a glimpse into the lives of two Loyola alums who’ve turned making smoothies into a mission to help the Loyola community stay healthy.

Mark Rohde, ’76 and Cindy Campagna Rohde, ’78 met as varsity athletes at Loyola and the chemistry was irresistible. A basketball standout from 1972-1976, Mark scored a career 1,103 points, ranking him 20th on the all-time Loyola scoring list. He served as Loyola’s Sports Information Director, head tennis coach, and assistant basketball coach in the late 1970s. Cindy was a three-sport, nine-letter athlete in basketball, volleyball, and lacrosse. They are only the second husband-wife duo in the Loyola Athletics Hall of Fame. The Rohdes own and operate the Smoothie King on Cold Spring Lane, just blocks from the Evergreen campus.

Quarantine Takeover – Queen Kyla Vera

Tuesday, October 13th, 2020 by The Professor

This week we’re joined by the amazing Queen Kyla Vera of Metalachi! She’s the rocking metal violin powerhouse soloist you won’t believe unless you see her live. We were lucky to have the monsters of mariachi come by the station once upon a pre-COVID time and had a blast with them all (Check out their Studio Seizure!). Kyla is highlighting some great music this week – all bands and artists that she has performed with (or Metalachi has) including some incredible violinists and some rock legends (Suicidal Tendancies! Lamb of God!) so tune in and check it out. Luckily her crazed kitten Gizmo stopped trying to eat the microphone and resorted to just attacking Kyla so the show could be finished… We can’t wait for Metachi to stomp it’s way back east again from LA soon!!

Album of the Week: Declan McKenna – “Zeros”

Friday, October 2nd, 2020 by Ronnie Gruseck

Reviewed by Anna Markulis

Released: September 4th 2020

Rate: 8/10

RIYL: Wallows, Peach Pit, HUNNY, The Honeysticks, Vampire Weekend, Cage the Elephant

“Zeros” is British indie-pop artist Declan McKenna’s second full-length album that is available now for purchase and streaming. McKenna procured a spot on the Billboard Top 20 after self-releasing his first single “Brazil” at age 16. In 2017, he released his first album “What Do You Think About the Car?” which gained him a loyal fan base and left listeners eager for new music.

“Zeros” features 80s inspired songs such as “You Better Believe!!!” and “The Key To Life On Earth” that will uplift anyone who listens. Despite the majority of these songs being upbeat with electronic synth tones, “Zeros” also features songs with a calmer acoustic guitar atmosphere that is apparent in “Emily” and “Eventually, Darling.” There is a song guaranteed for everyone, no matter their taste or mood. Be sure to give it a listen!
