Hans at play

Wednesday, June 9th, 2010 by The Professor

Hans at play. Since he is no longer a DJ, or even a student, we really have no explanation for this photo. It was recently discovered and we just felt it needed to be shared. We tell the monkeys not to feed Hans, but… they always do and it makes him so happy. It’s a wonder they let him leave Ghana.

The Professor Wins an Award!

Sunday, May 16th, 2010 by Tim Teeling

John Devecka Loyola AMDG Award Winner 2010

WLOY is proud to announce that our Operations Manager, John Devecka, has won the 2010 Loyola University AMDG Community Award. He is the man who started our push for Haiti relief fundraising. Without him, there wouldn’t have been a 100% match from the Aber D. Unger Foundation. John has made an impact on the Loyola Campus, the Greater Baltimore Community, and from his efforts this past semester, to countless people in Haiti.

The entire WLOY staff would like to thank John for all his hard work over the years at WLOY. We are proud of you and proud to say we work for WLOY. Read the full press release after the break!

Lance Says Goodbye

Friday, May 14th, 2010 by The Professor

Lance sheds a single tear in memory of the good times in Austin and all the graduating seniors of 2010. With thanks and great hopes for your futures, WLOY says goodbye to Eric “Hans” Sappington, Rich “The DJ” Rodrigues, Jeff “The X is Silent” Malone, Mike “The Red” Mennis, Jenna Mercadante, Brittany Sigler and Heather Doyle. We also wonder why only the guys got dorky nicknames.

You’re all leaving on a high note as Club of the Year! Not a bad way to go out. Congratulations and all the best for the future!! You will be missed. Well, maybe not Eric, but the rest of you certainly will be. Lance reminds Hans that what happens in Austin stays in Austin, unless you’re dumb enough to leave photos behind… which will be very helpful when soliciting alumni donations 😉

OK Go @ Ramshead Live – Show ID no Fees

Wednesday, May 5th, 2010 by The Professor

No Fees from OK Go

OK Go continues to fight the power! For Sunday’s show at Ramshead Live you can buy your tickets with NO FEES which saves something like $4.2 million at Ticketmaster alone. Just show your college ID and you won’t pay the fees. Brought to you by the same band that told its label EMI to pound sand when they wouldn’t let them embed videos. EMI was stupid so OK Go started their own label. You can support that kind of independent mania on Sunday w. special guests Earl Greyhound, Robert Francis (doors open 7pm) for $20.

Nightsbridge In-Studio Interview

Wednesday, May 5th, 2010 by The Professor

Pitch

Picture 1 of 13

The guys from Nightsbridge (including WLOY Alumni David “Mr. Fabulous” Gregory ’06) swung by WLOY for a sit-down with Eric Sappington before their triumphant stomping of the stage at The Recher.  Their premiere show there crushed the other bands on the bill.  Some simply hung their heads in shame in the crowd, while others quietly drifted off to new jobs selling funnel cakes at traveling fairs, anything to avoid playing music again.
