Thursday, April 24th, 2014 by Rachel

1376469_657648934297971_1938143428_nFollowing their performance at our WLOY Coffeehouse, I had the chance to sit down with Nalani & Sarina, the dynamic, twinning duo who can hold their own in the music game. The extremely talented pair graced our ears with their singing abilities, along with each playing the guitar, piano and ukelele. They are a fun crowd to hang around and they certainly give a good interview. Be sure to listen to the whole interview below and check out their music!

Reminder!! Star Search this Thursday 4/24

Tuesday, April 22nd, 2014 by Joe Lomuti

KANYE_WEST_ANIMNow, WLOY usually isn’t in the business of beating dead horses (we consider ourselves humanitarians if anything). But we must again remind you that our last event of the year is coming up this Thursday and it’s gunna be HUGE. Like really big. Like the buzz is that Kanye is going to be there. He heard about the prizes, including the gift certificates to a plethora of awesome local dives and eateries, and he couldn’t resist. Apparently Kanye has a soft spot for pink flamingos and bread pudding. Now if celebrity proximity  and food doesn’t entice you, at least come and support your friends while they expose their most sacred vulnerabilities to the critical eye of the spectator. Join us in McGuire at 8:30.
