Maya and her family were taking a walk at Lake Montebello on a bright sunny day. Other kids were riding their bikes and bird watching when their dog Casper suddenly ran towards a tree. When Maya went to go investigate she saw that Casper was digging a hole. Maybe he found something she thought, so she began to help him dig.

Indispensable Oyster – Show 2

Tuesday, October 20th, 2020 by The Professor

Host: Prof. David Belz

Welcome to another episode of The Indispensable Oyster, a conversation with people of interest about subjects Loyola, Baltimore and beyond, produced by WLOY Radio in cooperation with Right Brain Creative Services. Join our host author and professor David Belz for a glimpse into the lives of two Loyola alums who’ve turned making smoothies into a mission to help the Loyola community stay healthy.

Mark Rohde, ’76 and Cindy Campagna Rohde, ’78 met as varsity athletes at Loyola and the chemistry was irresistible. A basketball standout from 1972-1976, Mark scored a career 1,103 points, ranking him 20th on the all-time Loyola scoring list. He served as Loyola’s Sports Information Director, head tennis coach, and assistant basketball coach in the late 1970s. Cindy was a three-sport, nine-letter athlete in basketball, volleyball, and lacrosse. They are only the second husband-wife duo in the Loyola Athletics Hall of Fame. The Rohdes own and operate the Smoothie King on Cold Spring Lane, just blocks from the Evergreen campus.

Quarantine Takeover – Queen Kyla Vera

Tuesday, October 13th, 2020 by The Professor

This week we’re joined by the amazing Queen Kyla Vera of Metalachi! She’s the rocking metal violin powerhouse soloist you won’t believe unless you see her live. We were lucky to have the monsters of mariachi come by the station once upon a pre-COVID time and had a blast with them all (Check out their Studio Seizure!). Kyla is highlighting some great music this week – all bands and artists that she has performed with (or Metalachi has) including some incredible violinists and some rock legends (Suicidal Tendancies! Lamb of God!) so tune in and check it out. Luckily her crazed kitten Gizmo stopped trying to eat the microphone and resorted to just attacking Kyla so the show could be finished… We can’t wait for Metachi to stomp it’s way back east again from LA soon!!

WLOY Co-Founds International Local Music Exchange

Wednesday, September 23rd, 2020 by The Professor

Every college radio station wants to help their local music scene. We all do our best to engage it, bring it to our studios and campuses and even put bands on live for others to enjoy. But what we haven’t really had the power to do until now is share those bands with other stations. WLOY, KBVR and KCSU have joined forces with the College Radio Foundation to launch the International Local Music Exchange on October 2nd as a feature of World College Radio Day! As part of the kickoff, more than a dozen college stations around the world are producing and sharing 1 hour shows highlighting the best of their local music scenes. That means that you can hear great Baltimore artists on stations from Oregon to Sweden! World College Radio Day has more than 600 participating stations around the world and we hope to add all of them to the list of stations sharing their local scenes in the next few months. (more…)
