On March 2nd, 2016 a Baltimore institution burned. The Book Thing, a free book store serving the city for more than 15 years, suffered a massive fire that destroyed more than 200,000 books and the roof of the building. Russell has started to rebuild and WLOY is going to help. After our initial donation of $2,000, we let him know we wanted to do more. Working with the great people at Friends Records and Peabody Heights Brewing Company, we have put together an amazing festival to raise more money! An incredible collection of local bands large and small have jumped in to help, food vendors signed on, and we are ready to blow everyone away! Join us Saturday May 28 from noon-8pm while we fill 2 stages with bands, and you with food and beverage, all to help The Book Thing!

Claire Shaw and Chemaine Sharpe were our lucky winners yesterday! Claire Shaw was lucky enough to snag two tickets for the Ziggy Marley at Baltimore Soundstage this Monday! She caught As Told By Gingers at the right time. This wonderful show by our staff members Leandra and Kelly plays every Wednesday from 2:00-3:00pm and yesterday they were giving away tickets! Tuning in is only one way to win big time. Chemaine Sharpe attended last week’s Coffeehouse with Blind Man Leading. She had luck on her side with winning the raffle for ticket to “I Love Lucy” at the Hippodrome.

Direct from the West End, the smash-hit musical GHOST is coming to the Hippodrome April 8-13th! Based on the phenomenal Oscar-winning movie that captured the hearts and imaginations of a generation back in the 90s, GHOST is a timeless fantasy about the power of love. Sam is trapped as a ghost between this world and the next trying to communicate with girlfriend Molly through a phoney psychic in the hope of saving her from his murderer. GHOST is a rollercoaster ride of romance and comedy with dazzling state-of-the-art staging – it’s “JAW-DROPPINGLY AMAZING” Manchester Evening News.
WLOY has tickets for you to win, or you can just be safe and buy a few of your own here. Listen in, follow us on Twitter and Facebook to find out when the next pair could be YOURS!
Meanwhile, about that pot you promised to make me…

Once again, WLOY wants to send you to opening night at the Hippodrome! This time to see the remarkable theatrical version of War Horse on February 4th. Win tickets at our Thursday Coffeehouse events and during our Friday Live at Boulder shows.
A remarkable tale of courage, loyalty and friendship. England, 1914.
As World War One begins, Joey, young Albert’s beloved horse, is sold to the cavalry and shipped from England to France. He’s soon caught up in enemy fire, and fate takes him on an extraordinary journey, serving on both sides before finding himself alone in no man’s land. But Albert cannot forget Joey and, still not old enough to enlist, he embarks on a treacherous mission to find him and bring him home.
This powerfully moving and imaginative drama, filled with stirring music and songs, is a show of phenomenal inventiveness that is currently playing to packed houses in London and New York. At its heart are astonishing life-sized puppets created by South Africa’s Handspring Puppet Company, that bring to life breathing, galloping, charging horses strong enough for men to ride.
The performances are daily from 2/4-2/9, with 8:00pm shows during the week and 2 shows on Saturday (2 & 8pm) and Sunday (1:00 & 6:30pm). More details and tickets can be found here.
