This Thursday Dec 10 WLOY is hosting its last Coffeehouse movie night of the year! Come to the Reading Room at 9pm to watch The Wizard of Oz like you’ve never seen before!
We’re showing The Dark Side of Oz, which refers to the auditory pairing of 1973 Pink Floyd album Dark Side of the Moon with the visual portion of the 1939 film The Wizard of Oz. Once paired at the end of the MGM lion’s third roar, the album and the film appear to correspond with one another, creating one overall “trippy” experience!
It’s your last chance to relax before the onslaught of finals, so come and let WLOY provide the popcorn and the entertainment.

For the first time this year, WLOY was asked to participate in the Mayor’s Christmas Parade! Full of Christmas cheer, reindeer, and flamingos (in true Hampden fashion) our float rolled down the streets handing out over 600 candy canes to the surrounding crowds! Check out the float we constructed and definitely make sure to go next year.

Today is the 30th anniversary of John Lennon’s death. We remember him for not only his prolific career with the Beatles, but also his impressive solo career that followed. There are so many words that one can say about John Lennon; in short, he is an inspiration for the young and the old, and his influence has stretched across many generations. A peacemaker, political activist, and voice of a generation, Lennon will be forever remembered for changing music.

It’s always a good thing to explore the individual parts of a city, but sometimes its best to just stand back and view the city as a whole. The Top of the World Observation Level on the 27th floor of the World Trade Center in the Inner Harbor allows us all this exhilarating experience.

With the holiday season around us, there is sure to be a bit more baking going around town. You put so much work into those baked goods, sometimes it feels like you’re making your great and artful masterpiece, don’t you? While he didn’t bake his art, 20th century artist and baker Eugene Von Bruenchenhein would likely agree.
Baker by trade and self-taught Wisconsin artist, Bruenchenhein made his first paintings on box panels he brought home from the bakery. While not particularly successful during his lifetime, he still produced thousands of paintings, sculptures and photographs. Now, 27 years after his death, the American Visionary Art Museum, along with two other museums, is celebrating the centenary of his Bruenchenhein’s birth by having a solo exhibit of his works.
