This week we’re showing Almost Famous, a 2000 film directed by Cameron Crowe and starring Patrick Fugit, Philip Seymour Hoffman, Billy Crudup and Kate Hudson. One of the most iconic films for our generation, Almost Famous follows the story of aspiring journalist William Miller (Fugit) who, at the young age of just 15, follows the up-and-coming band Stillwater on their tour.
A movie featuring rock-n-roll, love and drugs, it’s one that you will not want to miss. Come to the Reading Room on Thursday! Bring your friends, eat the popcorn (and other snacks) provided, sit back, relax and enjoy Almost Famous.

Looking for a bit of Baltimore, history and… song? There’s no place quite like Fort McHenry National Monument and Historic Shrine, the birthplace of “The Star-Spangled Banner,” for the perfect mix of these.
Built to defend the Port of Baltimore from enemy attacks after American won its independence, Fort McHenry played a crucial role during the Battle of Baltimore in 1814. When visiting the fort, you’ll get to view the film “The Defense of Fort McHenry” and see the barracks, the uniforms and even partake in the daily flag change. You’ll also get to tour the fort on your own.

In the third day of the very long and very informative business trip, it can be said that WLOY has really learned so much. Beginning with a 9:00 AM session, the whole crew: Tim, Billy, Christa, and Amanda (excluding Anthony who had a very long and strenuous night dealing with multiple “Business Clients”) went throughout the various conference rooms of the humongous Galt Hotel (which has its fair share of interesting room names such as Spiegel, Sampson, Coe and the like as if we were transferred into the mystical land of Narnia), learning different aspects of the radio world.

It’s the weekend and there’s no better time for a road trip. Today why don’t you make the short drive to Annapolis and cheer on the Navy Midshipmen as they play against the Duke Blue Devils for the first time in 2 years.

“You look very professional at your little desk right now.” – Timothy Teeling
The first phrase I had typed on this post was: “I look ridiculously professional, sitting at the hotel room desk typing out our day two update…” and then I deleted it, because I couldn’t think of what to say after the word “update.” Since Tim walked in and made said observation, however, I think it’s rather fitting.
Upon taking our seats on the flight to Louisville, PR Queen Amanda took notice of the suits sitting around us and quickly proclaimed the CBI Conference a “business trip.” Anthony also took a liking to the idea, and I took a brief hiatus from hyperventilating over the prospect of being 4,000 feet above the ground to lament the absence of matching WLOY briefcases.

On October 21, WLOY held an interactive workshop for musically inclined students. We invited Loyola Alum, Mike McMonagle, to play a few of his songs and discuss the writing process. Afterward, a few volunteers got up and performed. The songs ranged from originals to covers by the Avett Brothers. Our campus is filled with talented musicians so be sure to catch the next open mic night and maybe show off some of your skills!

What’s delicious, nutritious, and easy to eat on the go? Crêpes! And at Sofi’s Crepes, you’ll find some of the most finely-mastered ones this side of the Atlantic Ocean.
With the choice of savory or sweet, there’s something for everyone. That’s not to say the choice will be easy: The Godfather or the Nutty Banana? The Kevin Bacon or the Crêpe Suzette? But any decision will be a good one and the entire experience, if you couldn’t tell already, will be filled with a playfulness that will keep you coming back for more (and more, and more).
