Quarantine Takeover Show – Lockemy

Sunday, May 3rd, 2020 by The Professor

Welcome to the first of our new series of Quarantine Takeover shows! We were inspired by our semi-regular Studio Seizure shows on Monday nights combined with the magic of quarantined lockdown to create something new. While the Studio Seizure normally has an artist or band coming into the station and being interviewed while they select all the music for an hour, it just isn’t practical in a time of social distancing and campus closures. So… we decided to let the artists REALLY take over and send us a complete 1 hour show with their influences, favorite bands, musicians you really should hear and (as a bonus) some of their own music and inspirations. We asked around and we have a lot of great local artists building shows for us now and we may just keep this going long after lockdown is lifted in 2028, or whenever. So, without further ado… our first Quarantine Takeover show will be airing Tuesday at 7pm presented by Lockemy and featuring:

Stone Temple Pilots – Sex Type Thing – Atlantic Records
Silverchair – Point of View – Sony Music
Lockemy – In One Place – Self
Incubus – Dig – Island
Depeche Mode – Precious – A Whole Bunch
Andrew Belle – Dark Matter – Collide
Lockemy – The Fog – Self
Seal – Colour – ZTT Records
Beck – Heart is a Drum – Geffen
Lockemy – Little Things – Self
Mutemath – Equals – Warner Brothers
Young The Giant – Mind Over Matter – Fueled By Ramen
Lockemy – Just Maybe – Self

Lockemy has a smart social media mind and keeps it simple so whether it’s Instagram, Facebook, Tik Tok or Twitter you just search for Lockemyofficial and you’ll find him!

If you missed it, the show is in our archives!

Voices of COVID-19 Student Project

Saturday, May 2nd, 2020 by The Professor

Students in Professor Glick’s Radio Storytelling class started this semester with the plan to create a series of pieces focusing on different voices of Loyola and then a series of community voices. Then… things changed…a lot. When faced with the rapid changes and working from home, Professor Glick reoriented the class to tell their stories from where they were. So while we still have voices of Loyola, they are now voices from around the country and community. Listen in as the students report on healthcare providers, businesses, shopping, graduation and much more. Huge kudos to the students and Professor Glick from turning chaos into a fantastic set of voices and reports from around the country.

Anchors: Alex Mitsopoulos (’22) & Julianna Capuano (’22)
Executive Producers: Ryan Whitley (’21) & Bridgett Ballard (’20)
Reporters: Justin Strott (’21), Caroline Suozzi (’22), Emma Toomey (’21), Gabriella Pirisino (’21), Dominika Ortonowski (’20), Caroline Pierno (’20), Madeline Buscone (’21), Rachel Hoos (’22), Diana Jasany (’22)
