Looking to learn more about Baltimore’s unique history and fame? What better place than the Baltimore & Ohio Railroad Museum. After all, it’s on the museum’s 40 acres that the first commercial long-distance track was born, giving us the nation’s truly unique railroad system.
From taking (holiday) train rides, climbing into a steam locomotive, watching toy trains pass through the garden, and viewing railroad movies in theater cars, there’s plenty to keep you busy at the museum. You’ll be amidst history as you look through nearly 200 pieces of rolling stock and locomotives and thousands of small artifacts like pocket watches, communication devices, lanterns, and dining car china that cover the start of American railroading in 1830 through present day.

Bill German gave his first, and no doubt longest, radio interview ever and Tim was there to talk Rolling Stones all day long. It’s a long one so we broke it into 4 parts!

Last week, I caught up with WLOY alum/current DJ, Nick Centanni, host of The Moldie Oldies, which plays every Wednesday from 10AM until noon. I tracked Nick down, asked him a couple of questions and got, well, some extremely elaborate answers. Read on to see how the class of 2010 graduate is doing while he sends us his show every week from the Nick-cave.

Have you eaten too much in Boulder lately and now need some spice in your life? Start with tonight’s dinner! Head on over to Holy Frijoles for some authentic Mexican cuisine! Hoy Frijoles is located in the heart of Hampden, which is only a short drive from Loyola’s campus and a perfect place for a quick escape from the average school cafeteria.
Holy Frijoles has a wide variety of Mexican fodder, including every type of taco, burrito, chimichanga and enchilada there is, but it doesn’t end there! You can view and/or download the menu at their website.

We’re celebrating 35 years of radio at Loyola this Saturday! It’s the exact day in 1975 when WVLC (The Voice of Loyola College) first signed on to broadcast in the cafeteria. It evolved into WLCR and ran until the mid 1990s before being wiped out in the renovation of the Student Center. In 2002 we restarted WLOY and in March of 2003 we went 24/7/365 and haven’t looked back. Now we are, along with lots of station alumni from the 70’s and 80’s. Listen in from 1-7pm on Saturday to check out all the DJs as they get back on the air again! We’ve got their original jingle and even their original vinyl!
