Young The Giant at Rams Head Live!

February 28th, 2014 by Rachel

photo 4On February 25th, in the year 2014, year of the horse, I had the pleasure of seeing Young the Giant. The Northern California band, Cayucas, opened for them, and they were pretty groovy. When Young the Giant and front man Sameer Gadhia took the stage, all bets were off at their sold out show. They opened with “Anagram,” their first full length track on their sophomore album, Mind Over Mind. They played a good combination of songs off both Mind Over Matter and Young The Giant which gave the crowd room to sing and dance along. If you’ve never been to a YTG concert and been able to experience Sameer on stage first hand, you’re truly missing a valuable life experience. He is electric on stage and so much fun to watch. You can see how much he enjoys their music, the way he bops around stage and engages the crowd. At one point, Sameer took the fedora of an audience member and danced around stage wearing it, followed by a performance with a cowbell. They also had an amazing light show happening synced with every song. After their “exit” from stage, the crowd burst into a “one more song” chant until they returned to the stage to play a few more. They ended their 3 song encore with their classic from their first album, “My Body.” It was the perfect song to end the night with, as the entire crowd sang along in musical harmony. If you have the chance to see them in the future, do not pass it up!

RadioEdu Second Semester: Meet and Greet (Week 5)

February 28th, 2014 by Jonathan Prozzi

Hello everyone! This was an exciting week at Eutaw-Marshburn as we had a Meet and Greet with the fourth graders and parents who have received the next round of RadioEdu scholarships! John created two excellent WEMR Eutaw-Marshburn Radio vinyl signs, and we were able to place one on the door to the classroom and another inside the studio. The students were thrilled as the branding gave the radio room a whole new vibe!

We decided that the best way to introduce the fourth graders to the radio equipment would be to have them partake in What Happens Next?, but with a slight twist: J and M would be the engineers for the project! This encapsulates one of the overarching goals of RadioEdu, which is to demonstrate that the program not only teaches the youth involved the skills of audio production and engineering, but also prepares them to be able to manage their own sessions without requiring my assistance. In just six months J and M have demonstrated such mastery and the accompanying confidence that enables them to conduct a recording session with very minimal guidance. I will be posting more about this amazing progression in later dates, so for now I will stick to the events of this evening!

After a brief introduction from Principal Hewitt, John and myself, we invited J to give his own introduction about what he believed to be the high points of the program and offer any advice for new students. He handled this task confidently and was an excellent inspiration for the new students! John and I decided that one of the best demonstrations would be for J to explain and engineer an interview session with one of the new students. Since he was knowledgeable and capable enough to conduct this session on his own, we let him walk the parents and students through the process. He began by giving an overview of the software and equipment, and conducted a step by step review and explanation of each stage of recording. Without my needing to do anything, J armed the tracks for recording, checked microphone levels, set up the mics and cables so that they would be comfortable for the student he was recording, and gave a professional count-in to begin! After the brief interview, J then explained the editing and post-production process, culminating with a finished project that he completely engineered from start to finish in roughly 20 minutes!

We are very proud of the fact that the first generation of RadioEdu youth have learned enough, and are confident enough in their abilities to be able to engineer a session such as this. This points to the future of the program, as the aim is for the students to be able to engineer and produce content for their fellow, younger students. Keep posted for more information about the next phase of the project!

What Is The WLOY Staff Listening To This Week?

February 27th, 2014 by Billy Dries

3724697Leslie Weis – 5 Seconds of Summer – 
More accents and boybands!! Woohoo! This pop rock band, 5 Seconds of Summer, comprised of four adorable Aussies is pretty new to the scene and as well as millions of other girls all around the world, I’m obsessed. 5 Seconds of Summer began in December 2011 when Luke Hemmings, Michael Clifford and Calum Hood joined together and started posting videos of themselves performing covers of popular songs to YouTube. A little bit later they were joined by drummer Ashton Irwin, and the current 5 Seconds of Summer lineup came to be. Last February, 5 Seconds of Summer announced that they’d be the opening act on One Direction’s worldwide arena tour and hysteria among all teenage girls immediately ensued. The boys are now currently signed to Capitol Records and are working on their debut album. Their new single, She Looks So Perfect​, has just made me even more addicted and it’s starting to become unhealthy and kind of scaring me.
