It’s a new week here at WLOY, and that means new music — lots of it, in fact. At the station, we have wonderful new records from the likes of everyone from Kate Nash and Mudhoney, to Ra Ra Riot and Justin Timberlake. We’re really excited about the new Wavves record Afraid of Heights, as well. Check it out if you have a chance! He’s pictured over there, to the left. Read the rest of this entry »

Straight from the website, www.TerrapinMudRun.com, they say,
“Terrapin Adventures is teaming up with Playworks Baltimore to put together a 5K mud run to help raise money to bring recess to schools in the Baltimore area. The Terrapin and the Hare Mud Run is a fun, high intensity, obstacle course run through the woods of Savage, Maryland.
Starting at Terrapin Adventures, the Terrapin and the Hare will include 5 Kilometers of very tough terrain and will contain obstacles such as, climbing walls, tires, webs, and, of course, mud. This race is not for the weak of heart. If you like a challenge and some food topped off with a beer from the Rams Head Tavern at the finish, then the Terrapin and the Hare is the race for you. Come run, jump, climb and get muddy for recess on May 6. Bringing the family? Playworks coaches will provide games and activities for the kids while you run the course.”
So what else is there really to say but, “I am going for it, Anthony (that’s me, the Sports Director)”

Sometimes, it is better to actually participate in an athletic activity than just catch the highlights on ESPN. Sometimes, it is better to just try and meet some friends and run somewhere.
Yes, running, America’s Past Time….I mean, America’s…thing we should all do once and a while.
At Goucher College, every Tuesdays and Thursdays, the BRRC Club runs along the trails that surround Goucher. Goucher graciously allows for private individuals to coordinate with each other and take recreational runs together. Runs are mostly at night and it is often smart to check ahead of time to make sure their is a run going on.
Now, the event is perfect for all levels. Beginners will often be able to run with each other and as you get more comfortable, along with your body becoming more acclimated to long distance running, you can move up with the next level and so on.
It is a great way to relax and de-stress and happens to be on key days of the week when stress is at its maximum

Last week gave us m b v, and this week blesses us with Amok, the new album from Atoms of Peace. If you haven’t yet heard of them, it’s basically another vehicle for Radiohead-mastermind Thom Yorke to call his own. This time, he’s joined by Red Hot Chili Peppers’s bassist Flea, as well as a Radiohead produced, Beck’s drummer, and a Brazilian percussionist. The album has some sweet Brazilian vibes to it, and many have compared it to Thom Yorke’s other project, The Eraser. We highly recommend it if you’re into that kinda thing. Otherwise, enjoy spring break, WLOY listeners!

The Stroup Kid For Kids Epilepsy Foundation is dedicated to helping individuals affected by epilepsy and other seizure disorders. They raise money for education, advocacy in government, and for research in treatments for those that suffer from this condition.
The organization was formed in 2004 after Adelyn Stroup, the daughter of Trent and Tina Stroup, had her first seizure and was diagnosed with epilepsy. Her parents didn’t know where to go after their daughter had just been diagnosed with a very rare form of epilepsy. They pooled some assets together and attempted to find research and others who may have been in a similar situation. Soon, a large organization formed and began to advocate for others like Adelyn.
