Let’s Be Still

Letter Grade: B+


Reviewed By: Margaret Jokoh

October 15, 2013, The Head and The Heart released their sophomore album, Let’s Be Still. The album is comforting and soothing with the influence of meaningful lyrics. For those who are new listeners to the band, it has a mix of folk, indie and country, reminiscent of Mumford and Sons and Passenger. You can tell that every song is carefully thought out; though many songs are very simple, when it boils down to it, this is what makes the band truly genius. They show you that a band does not need the complexities of instruments and voices to not only make a great song, but a great album. (more…)

WLOY Will Rock You!

Monday, October 14th, 2013 by The Professor

We had 4 pairs of tickets to Opening Night of the US premiere of WE WILL ROCK YOU at the Hippodrome. We gave you 3 weeks to enter the raffle, and then we picked the winners. Here they are, look upon them with much jealousy 🙂



You can still buy tickets to the show, if you hurry! It’s a short run and going to sell out! It’s going to be an incredible show – members of our staff saw it in London and loved it! Besides, it’s all Queen songs so it has to be good.

(There are no A+’s at Loyola)


Reviewed By: Margaret Jokoh

On September 27, 2013, sisters Danielle, Este and Alana of Haim released their debut album, Days are Gone. The album has a very elective sound, with it ranging from classic hip hop beats to funky guitar riffs. This is represented in songs like, “My Song 5” and “Running If you call my name.” Without fail, the sisters continue to portray their classic sound with synthesizers, dope drum beats and their hypnotizing melodic voices.

What’s Wrong With Eli?

Friday, October 11th, 2013 by Justin Thomas

Carolina Panthers v New York GiantsEli Manning is a two-time Super Bowl MVP, with two rings under his belt and the title of leader of the comeback kids that are the New York Giants. But as his brother Peyton is looking like he’s going to have a record-breaking season at quarterback, Eli is also breaking records, just not the kind you’d want to break.

Through the first six weeks of the NFL season, Eli has led the Giants to a dismal 0-6 record, the Giants’ worst start since 1976 when the team started the season 0-9. There are a lot of pieces that factor into the poor play of the Giants this year, but Eli has to be at the top of the list.

RadioEdu Week 03

Friday, October 11th, 2013 by Jonathan Prozzi

Concepts: Conducting Interviews, Project Planning for Interviews

Continuing on last week’s lesson, we decided that the best way to become comfortable conducting and giving an interview is to practice! Since last week focused on creating questions beforehand and conducting an interview with scripted questions, I put the students on the spot and had them conduct completely improvised interviews.

Wednesday morning we discussed different questions that would be good to ask during an interview, and how the interviewer needs to write questions that are appropriate for the interviewee. For example, we came up with questions that would be good to ask a fellow student and then examined how questions for a teacher or parent interview would differ. As practice, I had the students draft five questions to ask each other in mock interviews, and then they took turns conducting interviews. This was excellent practice for being on both ends of the interview.

In the afternoon session, M’s interview skills had already greatly progressed and she was confident enough to interview Mrs. Jackson, her music teacher. Prior to the interview we discussed the pros and cons of pre-written questions versus improvised content, and that many radio interviews are conducted with a mixture of both approaches. She then drafted a series of appropriate ‘guide questions’ for a teacher interview, and was able to conduct the interview with Mrs. Jackson, who was able to provide excellent pointers for questions for future interviews.

NFL Invading Europe?

Tuesday, October 8th, 2013 by Justin Thomas

nfl_a_london1x_300x300It seems that the NFL is attempting to invade our brothers from across the pond. Since Roger Goodell became Commissioner of the NFL in 2006, he has pushed heavily to involve Europe in the NFL. Since 2007, there has been an annual game in London between two NFL teams in the regular season. This year it was bumped up to two games in London, and now the NFL has agreed to play three games at Wembley Stadium in London next season.

The three home teams have already been determined as the Jacksonville Jaguars, Atlanta Falcons, and Oakland Raiders for these three games next season. (more…)
