Loyola Alum to Coach New MLL Franchise

November 22nd, 2013 by Justin Thomas

9479073The MLL (Major League Lacrosse) just added a new expansion team called the Florida Launch. The Launch’s first ever coach will be none other than Loyola alum Stan Ross.

Ross graduated from Loyola in 1995 and played lacrosse as a defender for the Hounds for three years. Ross even started his coaching career in 1995 as an undergraduate assistant coach for the Greyhounds.

Ross has also coached at the University of Denver and Princeton University, but was most recently an assistant coach for the Denver Outlaws, an MLL team who went 14-0 last year with Ross on staff.

Ross has said, “It is an honor to be named the first head coach in Florida Launch history,” and we certainly wish him all the best. For more information on the MLL and the Florida Launch, visit the website here.

RadioEdu Week 09

November 22nd, 2013 by Jonathan Prozzi

Concepts: Advanced Audio Editing for Loops, Mic Awareness for Live Recording

This was an abbreviated week, so we focused mainly on reviewing concepts from previous weeks while also discussing some of the ‘unseen’ studio skills regarding awareness of one’s surroundings while working with live mics. Throughout the last several weeks I’ve been providing tips to the students while they are recording. These are usually centered around awareness while recording, such as making sure one is aware of touching the mic cables while they are recording as this causes a ‘spike’ in the recording. Some of the other concepts that we’ve been practicing include making sure that they are at an acceptable and consistent distance from the mics, and also making sure we practice talking in loud and confident voices so that there is less need to boost the gain after the recording. The students have been improving in these areas over the weeks, and this was a time to check in on their progress and review these ‘hidden’ skills that have been improving.

We also delved further into the realm of loop editing and the process of cutting sounds and segments from a larger audio file in order to create their own rhythms and grooves. The students ultimately will produce soundbeds for their own segments as well as an introduction for their own radio segment, and so this skill review was a great reminder of how far they’ve come and also helped clarify upcoming goals.

What Are We Listening To This Week?

November 21st, 2013 by Billy Dries

Iloveyou_the_neighbourhood
Kelly Burchard – The NeighbourhoodI Love You

 While their album came out earlier this year, The Neighbourbood’s I Love You is just now making its way into my Top 25 Most Played iTunes playlist. Their motley crew of electric, hip-hop and indie rock sound is something that is hard not to like. All the tracks on I Love You flow into each other so smoothly, and while this isn’t necessarily the album that makes you want to get up and dance, it is definitely worth a listen to, if you haven’t already.

WLOY Coffee House Presents: Singer Song-writer Workshop with Claire Anthony

November 20th, 2013 by Joe Lomuti

Claire+Anthony+IMG_6259Last week we were graced with the enchanting sounds of Caleb Stine, but WLOY isn’t going to stop there! This Thursday, WLOY Coffee House Series hosts Claire Anthony, a young Baltimore singer song-writer. Claire’s soothing sound perfectly captures the ambiance of a cozy coffee house amidst a chilly November evening. However, although Claire will be performing her songs she also encourages all to share their own material. This is both a performance for the music lover, and workshop for those novice artists. It is a great opportunity to get feedback and improve your own material. So bring your guitar, or your rhymes, or maybe only your ears. Either way, the event begins Thursday evening, 9pm, in the third floor reading room. In the mean time, check out some of Claire’s music.

The group is comprised of the ever talented David “Native Son” Ross and Femi “The DriFish” Lawal (Pictured above, along with their children, Kat and Rae). The two hilarious and inspiring artists took us into their world and gave us a tour of their lifestyle, writing process and inspirations.
