WLOY Presents: Late Night Concert

November 6th, 2013 by Joe Lomuti

cheeringAs the icy Baltimore breeze begins its annual decent upon the Loyola campus, students commence a search for all things warm and toasty. They flock to the shelter of indoor heating and the comfort of a grande peppermint mocha. But late in the evening, when the Humanities building is empty and Starbucks fairy has retired, how can one find repose from the chill? Well, WLOY invites you to come huddle your hands around the heat of a buzzing Marshall half stack amplifier at the Late Night Concert, this Thursday. We will be graced with the funky tunes of Greasy Hands–a notable Baltimore band with a big sound. But thats not all, because as you know, WLOY is your hookup for Baltimore entertainment! We will be giving away tickets to the Opening Night of Jersey Boys at the  Hippodrome! Show starts 9 Pm, this Thursday in McGuire Hall.

Who’s Greasy Hands? Well, check em’ out

What’s Jersey Boys? What’s the Hippodrome? Where’s the rock I’ve been living under?? Find out here!

Review: Glass Animals EP – Glass Animals

November 6th, 2013 by Margaret Jokoh

thGlass Animals EP

Glass Animals

Grade: B+

Harvest Record’s recording artist, released their 4 track self titled EP, “Glass Animals.” The album has a haunting/spacey sound. The indie pop band makes use of synthesizers and artificial sounds to bring each songs to life. Dave Barley’s voice definitely keeps the listener captured and wanting to listen more and more. The album is very innovative and captures the essence of who Glass Animals are and is a great indicator of what’s to come from them in the future.

WLOY Cleans Up San Antonio

November 4th, 2013 by The Professor

7 trophies CBI 2013

When we got to the National Student Electronic Media Convention in San Antonio, they had all these trophies lying around messing up the place. It seemed a shame to mess up a nice looking city like San Antonio, and since we care about that kind of stuff, we helped make it nice and neat. Taking the trophies back to Baltimore seemed the best plan.

RadioEdu Week 06

November 1st, 2013 by Jonathan Prozzi

Concept: Delay review, Introduction to Echo

Continuing with the students’ introduction to effects and effect chains, this week we learned about Echo. The students immediately noted that the interface of the Echo plug-in is similar to the Delay, and that many of the parameters are the same. We then began to highlight the distinctions and at the end of the session, the students were able to identify the differences and brainstorm about when they would use each.

As with the other effects, we began by loading an audio sample of a guitar on a track with Echo on the rack. I had each student choose a preset from the menu and predict what it would sound like, and then analyze the parameters on the plug-in. The students were able to note the relationship between the ‘Delay Time’ parameter and how apparent the Echo would become.

Proof of Concept: This week was mainly theoretical and focused on linking what they saw on the preset parameters and predicting how the guitar sample would be changed. The students demonstrated that they understood the impact of ‘Delay Time’ by noting that the longer the delay, the longer they would continue to hear audio after the initial sample ceased to play. This was very impressive, and we further solidified the concept by having each student say “Happy Halloween” at the same time, and then each of them stagger when they would begin. The result was similar to the echo created on the track, which led to comparisons to ‘Row, Row, Row Your Boat,’ and how Echo can be considered similarly.

J decided to record a new version of his ‘Top Ten’ list, this week bringing a ‘Top Ten Pokemon’ installment. This was an excellent way for him to practice his ‘live radio show’ skills, as he did this entire list is largely spontaneous. He is continuing to work on designing a ‘Top Ten’ segment as a regular feature for an eventual radio show segment, and this list demonstrates his increasing comfort and confidence on the mic, as well as his technical skills regarding talking into the mic. Mic awareness is one of the ‘unseen’ skills that the students are continuing to develop, and this recording demonstrates a growing mindfulness in regard to these technical studio aspects.
