Looking for a bit of Baltimore, history and… song? There’s no place quite like Fort McHenry National Monument and Historic Shrine, the birthplace of “The Star-Spangled Banner,” for the perfect mix of these.
Built to defend the Port of Baltimore from enemy attacks after American won its independence, Fort McHenry played a crucial role during the Battle of Baltimore in 1814. When visiting the fort, you’ll get to view the film “The Defense of Fort McHenry” and see the barracks, the uniforms and even partake in the daily flag change. You’ll also get to tour the fort on your own.

Want to spend the day with the kids? Or unleash that inner kid of your own? Port Discovery Children’s Museum, ranked 4 on the top children’s museums in the United States, is definitely the place to go.
With three floors filled with interactive exhibits, the museum is sure to open up your imagination and inspiration through hands-on activities. From now through the end of the year, you can find a special Bob the Builder – Project Build It event, fun for kids and families. But there are plenty of permanent exhibits as well, like the adventure expedition that takes you back to Egypt in the 1920s and the life-on-a-farm experience with the Exploramora Exhibit.

In the third day of the very long and very informative business trip, it can be said that WLOY has really learned so much. Beginning with a 9:00 AM session, the whole crew: Tim, Billy, Christa, and Amanda (excluding Anthony who had a very long and strenuous night dealing with multiple “Business Clients”) went throughout the various conference rooms of the humongous Galt Hotel (which has its fair share of interesting room names such as Spiegel, Sampson, Coe and the like as if we were transferred into the mystical land of Narnia), learning different aspects of the radio world.

It’s the weekend and there’s no better time for a road trip. Today why don’t you make the short drive to Annapolis and cheer on the Navy Midshipmen as they play against the Duke Blue Devils for the first time in 2 years.

“You look very professional at your little desk right now.” – Timothy Teeling
The first phrase I had typed on this post was: “I look ridiculously professional, sitting at the hotel room desk typing out our day two update…” and then I deleted it, because I couldn’t think of what to say after the word “update.” Since Tim walked in and made said observation, however, I think it’s rather fitting.
Upon taking our seats on the flight to Louisville, PR Queen Amanda took notice of the suits sitting around us and quickly proclaimed the CBI Conference a “business trip.” Anthony also took a liking to the idea, and I took a brief hiatus from hyperventilating over the prospect of being 4,000 feet above the ground to lament the absence of matching WLOY briefcases.

On October 21, WLOY held an interactive workshop for musically inclined students. We invited Loyola Alum, Mike McMonagle, to play a few of his songs and discuss the writing process. Afterward, a few volunteers got up and performed. The songs ranged from originals to covers by the Avett Brothers. Our campus is filled with talented musicians so be sure to catch the next open mic night and maybe show off some of your skills!

What’s delicious, nutritious, and easy to eat on the go? Crêpes! And at Sofi’s Crepes, you’ll find some of the most finely-mastered ones this side of the Atlantic Ocean.
With the choice of savory or sweet, there’s something for everyone. That’s not to say the choice will be easy: The Godfather or the Nutty Banana? The Kevin Bacon or the Crêpe Suzette? But any decision will be a good one and the entire experience, if you couldn’t tell already, will be filled with a playfulness that will keep you coming back for more (and more, and more).

And we are off! Some of the WLOY crew is heading to Louisville, KY for the weekend for the National College Media Convention. I’m going to try and sporadically send updates about what we are up to and what sort of ridiculous stuff happens.
To start, I just want to put a disclaimer out there That’s I’m typing this on my phone so please excuse my misspellings and poor grammar. I know this will get on the Web Mistress’ (Amanda Nolan) nerves.
We are bringing quite a crowd to the convention. I’m joined by The Professor, Billy, Christa, Amanda, and Anthony. We almost left Anthony this morning because he got caught up playing his PlayStation in his room and almost forgot about us. Anthony also made the mistake of bringing a HUGE suitcase that had to be checked… How much clothing is he planning on wearing over the course of four days? Read the rest of this entry »

Head on down to The Particia and Arthur Modell Performing Arts Center at The Lyric to see Comedy Central’s own Daniel Tosh!
