I Never Knew Radio – New Shows Weekly

Friday, April 3rd, 2020 by The Professor

Yes, the campus is closed, but that doesn’t stop our shows! Listen in every week as Junior (’06) presents a new 2 hour episode of I Never Knew full of culture reggae tracks (new and old) along with mighty reasoning from some of the most important figures in reggae. Celebrate the music and culture 9-11am on Sundays with repeats 8-10am Wednesday and 10-12pm Thursdays before Crucial Cuts.

Together we also mourn the recent loss of classic reggae musician, producer, and more Bob Andy, and the founder of Power of Reggae Father German 🙁 Junior continues to celebrate their memories on upcoming shows.

Special Notice – Event Cancellations

Thursday, March 12th, 2020 by The Professor

We are very sorry to report that as the campus needs to close to keep everyone safe, so too must WLOY cancel the remainder of it’s spring music events. This is especially hard on us as we love celebrating all of the amazing campus-connected talent with current and past students at Battle of the Bands and the Songwriter Skirmish. But, as there will be no Loyolapalooza this year, there can be no Battle of the Bands winner to perform, or Songwriter Skirmish winners to open. We regret greatly that these events have to be cancelled but the safety of our campus and students has to take priority in this time. Please everyone stay safe, and we will see you again soon. Look for rescheduling of events and artists for the fall semester as soon as we are able. We hope to have the timing work to bring Hadley Kennary back as well, but in the meanwhile you can see what you missed by checking out her website!

Skribe at Starbucks 1/23

Wednesday, January 22nd, 2020 by Erin McAvoy

skribe poster / green / man with guitar / WLOYSkribe returns to Loyola this Thursday for our weekly Coffeehouse.  Skribe has been a WLOY favorite for many years, bringing not only his great lyrics and melodies to his performances but many special treats, as well.  Skribe lead performer Aaron Yealdhall actually makes his own instruments, like his bass drum suitcase, gas can guitar and banjo, “canjo-zookie”, “merican canjo”, and “kazoobie kazoos”!  Try to say those three times fast.  His sound can be described as soulful “garage folk” and his music takes influence from The Great Outdoors.  Skribe will be at Starbucks this Thursday from 8-10pm, so be sure to stop by and don’t miss out on the magic!  We hope to see you there.
