Single Float Parade
It’s Christmas time at WLOY! We wait ever year until Christmas Eve, unlike those stations that go all Christmas sometime in late August… Starting at midnight we will be all Christmas on Christmas Eve and Day, with student and alumni specials. And since we know people at home won’t want to miss their family and friends shows, we’re going to rerun some of them too. We have 8 different DJs with their own special Christmas wish for you, including the annual return of Nick Centanni (Moldie Oldies Show Wednesdays 10a-12p) with two big segments the Ultimate Christmas Eve Show and the Ultimate Christmas Day Show featuring 6 hours of his guests, great tunes and possibly the return of Ziggy.

Here’s the lineup of the special programs:

Christmas Eve
10:00a – 12:00p Kat & Rae Christmas Show
12:00p – 02:00p Radio RockonTour Christmas Show
02:00p – 03:00p Carl & James Christmas Show
03:00p – 04:00p Somewhere in the Between Christmas Show
04:00p – 05:00p Anthony & Tom Christmas Show
05:00p – 06:00p Kim & Kenzie Christmas Show
06:00p – 09:00p Nick’s Ultimate Christmas Eve Show

Christmas Day
12:00p – 03:00p Nick’s Ultimate Christmas Day Show
03:00p – 04:00p Carl & James Christmas Show
04:00p – 05:00p Somewhere in the Between Christmas Show
05:00p – 06:00p Anthony & Tom Christmas Show
06:00p – 07:00p Kim & Kenzie Christmas Show

But don’t worry about the rest of the time because it’s wall-to-wall Rudolph all Christmas Eve and Day. Tune in, and leave us on all day both days, like we’re your Yule Log Channel!

Staff Picks: Kait’s Top Albums of 2013

Tuesday, December 17th, 2013 by Kait Connaughton

unnamed-1Disclosure – Settle – 

Before 2013, electronic music was a rare find in my iTunes. This year, however, has been rather kind to the deteriorating genre (although I can’t say the same about EDM culture) with explosive releases from Daft Punk, James Blake, Pretty Lights, and my favorite of the year, Disclosure. Made up of two UK bloaks who just happen to be brothers, Disclosure debuted their first album Settle in June 2013 and needless to say, I have not stopped listening since. If you are not listening yet, you are doing yourself a disservice; that’s how strongly I feel about Disclosure.

Suggested Tracks: “Latch,” “Help Me Lose My Mind,” “Boiling,” & “What’s In Your Head”

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…)

Staff Picks: Dries’ Best Albums of 2013

Tuesday, December 3rd, 2013 by Billy Dries

Blood Orange - CoverBlood Orange – Cupid Deluxe – 

With his sophomore release, Blood Orange delivered an absolute masterpiece. The R&B meets disco groove of the album immediately captured me and drew me in. From the first track, “Chamkay”, to the closing, “Time Will Tell”, the album keeps the listener guessing, weaving in and out of multiple genres it gets almost anybody on their feet and dancing.

What Are We Listening To This Week?

Thursday, November 21st, 2013 by Billy Dries

Iloveyou_the_neighbourhood
Kelly Burchard – The NeighbourhoodI Love You

 While their album came out earlier this year, The Neighbourbood’s I Love You is just now making its way into my Top 25 Most Played iTunes playlist. Their motley crew of electric, hip-hop and indie rock sound is something that is hard not to like. All the tracks on I Love You flow into each other so smoothly, and while this isn’t necessarily the album that makes you want to get up and dance, it is definitely worth a listen to, if you haven’t already.

What Albums Are We Listening To This Week?

Thursday, November 14th, 2013 by Billy Dries

Beach_House_-_BloomKait Connaughton – Beach House – Bloom

By no means is Bloom a new release, but it is by far one of my most listened to albums in recent memory. 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.
