Quarantine Takeover – Red Sammy

Monday, August 24th, 2020 by The Professor

This week we hand over the keys to Baltimore band Red Sammy! Listen in at 7pm Tuesday and Thursday to take a wander through the minds of Adam Trice and Bruce Elliot from Red Sammy and hear from their new album releasing next week.

Adam Trice is an American writer, singer, and songwriter from Baltimore, MD. In 2007, he began performing in solo and duo ensembles under the name Red Sammy. His unique songwriting style blends rock, folk, country, and blues with thoughtful, and often, deeply emotional words that highlight a poetic sensibility. The name, Red Sammy, is taken from a minor character, Red Sammy Butts, in American southern gothic writer, Flannery O’Connor’s short story, “A Good Man is Hard to Find,” (1955). Notable songwriters and writers of inspiration include: Leonard Cohen, Bob Dylan, Alejandro Escovedo, Tom Waits, Tom Petty, Lucinda Williams, Frank Black/The Pixies, Raymond Carver, W.C. Williams, Ernest Hemingway, Charles Bukowski, and many others.

Bruce Elliott is a Baltimore native with a life-long passion for music. He reluctantly put his musical ambitions on hold after college, choosing instead to pursue a career in science and technology. Once he had established himself as a responsible tax-paying adult, however, he made good on a promise to himself to return to his pursuit of playing the guitar in a band. He began by playing open-mic jams and then over the years played in several local bands including The Wharf Rats, To Big To Fail, and Retro Deluxe, as well as various lineups with veteran of the local music scene, Georgie Jessup. His current on-going effort is with the Red Sammy band, with whom he has played since 2014, contributing to three CDs. His playing style reflects influences of J.J. Cale, Eric Clapton, Jerry Garcia, and many others.

New Show! Hip Hop Revisited with Saleem

Friday, August 7th, 2020 by The Professor

Saturday 3-4pm August 8
2-4pm every Saturday following!

Come explore the history and world of Hip-Hop every week with local artist Saleem!

I could introduce him to you as Saleem the emcee, or I could introduce you to him as Saleem the producer. However I think the most apropos title would be Saleem, the dopest emcee on production! Starting out with an ASRX-PRO and a microphone, Saleem has been blazing his trail through hip-hop’s indie scene for several years. Performing with luminaries such as Common, The Roots, KRS-One, Rakim, and The Wu-Tang clan, to name a few, tends to hone and sharpen your skills. These experiences led him to craft his highly regarded debut album, which now lends its title to this new show, Hip-Hop Revisited. A bold title for a bold project that served as a welcome, and refreshing, introduction into the world of this multifaceted artist; or as one writer described him, “The embodiment of hip-hop’s evolution.” (more…)

Quarantine Takeover – Saleem

Sunday, July 26th, 2020 by The Professor

This week’s Quarantine Takeover is a study in the sounds of Hip Hop protest. Saleem is bringing back the songs that inspired him and will keep protesters fueled up to demand change in the world. I could introduce him to you as Saleem the emcee, or I could introduce you to him as Saleem the producer. However I think the most apropos title would be Saleem, the dopest emcee on production! Starting out with an ASRX-PRO and a microphone, Saleem has been blazing his trail through hip-hop’s indie scene for several years. Performing with luminaries such as Common, The Roots, KRS-One, Rakim, and The Wu-Tang clan, to name a few, tends to hone and sharpen your skills. These experiences led him to craft his highly regarded debut album, Hip-Hop Revisited. A bold title for a bold project that served as a welcome, and refreshing, introduction into the world of this multifaceted artist; or as one writer described him, “The embodiment of hip-hop’s evolution.”

Retro Rocking Road Show – The Terrible Twos

Friday, July 24th, 2020 by The Professor

This Weeks Theme: The Terrible Twos

Featured Artists: The Beatles, Credence Clearwater Revival, WAR, Billy Joel, ABBA, and Journey

Every week Retro Eddie puts together a uniquely themed show for Friday night 7-9pm. He is not immune to having fun with the themes, or digging deep for tunes back to the beginning of recorded music. This week Eddie explores the bands that came oh-so-close but didn’t crack the #1 spot on the Billboard charts. Firmly lodged at #2 and climbing no higher – some of these tracks were so pervasive it will surprise you they never logged that all important #1 hit.

Did you tune into to the the Retro Rockin Roadshow last Friday? If you did we hope you enjoyed the theme of “the 60’s”. If you missed it you can always check out the playlists from past shows on the show page!

Do you Have suggestion or recommendation for Eddie’s show? Would you like to request a song or a specific theme? Please email your request to wloy@loyola.edu you can also DM your request through our vast array of social media.
