Honfest 2011!

May 18th, 2011 by Amanda Nolan

The 2011 Honfest is less than a month away, and, yet again, WLOY will be there to experience it all. Join us Saturday June 11th and Sunday June 12th on the Avenue!

What is Honfest, you might ask? Started in 1994, it’s a celebration of a local Bawlmer tradition. It all started with the word “Hon” – a local term of endearment, short for “Honey,” that actualizes the warmth and affection among the neighbors and visitors by these working-women of Baltimore. This nationally recognized festival covers four city blocks of 36th Street in Hampden with vendors, stages, music acts, and more.

WLOY will have giveaways – re: free stuff, such as tickets to a concert at PIER SIX PAVILION – so hang out with us!

School’s Out, WLOY Still Playing

May 16th, 2011 by Amanda Nolan

The sun has come out, it’s finally a respectable May temperature (it’s about time, Baltimore), and there are no more papers and tests hanging over our heads. The Spring semester is finished, and the time has come for an excess of relaxation (much needed, for all!). To all the graduating seniors, it’s been real, and good luck with the job hunt (or, if you’re avoiding the real world for “more education,” have fun in grad school). I’ll speak on behalf of everyone at the station when I say that we will certainly miss you dearly.

Billy, Ryan, and Taylor – you’ve done so much for WLOY, and I can’t thank you enough for everything you’ve done for me. I’ll miss bickering with all of you.

Tim – don’t worry, WLOY is in good hands. You’re certainly the WLOY “rock,” but as Natalie Portman in Black Swan says, “It’s my time. I’m the Swan Queen!”

Enough sentimentality – the REAL point is that WLOY plays 24/7/365, and we’ll be here all summer with giveaways, new music, and more, so stay tuned!

Rush – Time Machine Tumbler – Baltimore 4/22/11

May 10th, 2011 by The Professor

Time Machine Tumbler
by Radio RockonTour host Timothy Tilghman

Rush turns back time to rearrange Moving Pictures

Longevity into four decades as a successful rock band is not an easy endeavor. Surviving as a rock musician in the music industry is actually recognized as an occupational hazard. It is therefore an amazing accomplishment for a Canadian power trio to compose and produce new material that continues to drive demand for the group to appear live in concert on tour.

Rush’s Time Machine Tour calculatingly celebrates the 30th anniversary of the release of Moving Pictures, a vital album that sky-rocketed the band’s touring fortunes. Returning to perform in Baltimore after an extended hiatus on Friday, April 22, 2011, Rush was at the top of their game fueling fan fealty at the 1st Mariner Arena.
