College Radio Day!

Thursday, October 1st, 2015 by Allison Langley



Wait for it!
This Friday, October 2nd is College Radio Day! Safe to say this is WLOY’s favorite and most coveted holiday. We are all celebrating the 5th year of College Radio Day.
We take this day to recognize the importance of college radio and the positive effect it has had on students throughout the years. It is a day to encourage us to change that dial to a college radio station (WLOY of course) and support them all around the country. College radio maintains and fosters so much creativity, as we don’t have the commercial binds the most popular stations have. We have the ability to be more free and more open to new music and new talent. Not only helping students to achieve but also musicians as well.
As with most of our favorite holidays we typically receive a gift, so in honor of this WLOY will be raffling off a turn-table with a couple choice records to help kick start your collection. Come to our Coffeehouse this Thursday, October 1st, (with Swampcandy) to get a jumpstart and purchase your raffle tickets. Or, stop by the WLOY table at Live @ Boulder on Friday and purchase tickets there!
Yay for College Radio Day! #collegeradioday

Roland Park Middle School Tours WLOY

Thursday, September 24th, 2015 by Allison Langley

RPMWLOY This past Monday and Tuesday, WLOY had the pleasure of hosting 60 eighth graders, along with some teachers and parents, from Roland Park Middle School. Students spent about an hour touring the station, learning about the operations, and watching DJs in action. They learned about the equipment and functions of each recording and production studio, asked lots of questions about sound dampening panels on the walls and ceilings, and tried to fathom how we got 10,000 CDs and 7,000 LPs in that small space. The students got to meet and talk to some pretty cool DJ’s while they were on the air!

These students are currently involved in Roland Park’s theater class. They are currently writing radio plays and the best ones will be selected by their teacher to record and produce them at WLOY. They will be back in October to share their plays with everyone…so be sure to tune in!! We have been fortunate enough to collaborate with Roland Park Middle on this project for 4 years. There have been some very creative plays written during our time together and we hope to inspire these young kids to be future DJs! Remember to keep an open ear for more of these creative plays in October as details emerge. Thank you, Roland Park Middle School!
