Studio Seizures: When Artists Take Control Of WLOY

From time to time we all lose control. Things get weird. It happens to the best of us. At WLOY it sometimes happens to the whole studio. These are the days when we cede control of the station to a wandering band of minstrels and their uncontrolled impulses. For the better part of an hour, or more if the police are slow to arrive, the jolly minstrels will be in complete charge of the station and it’s programming. Our terrified staffers will do their bidding, play their music and try not to ask too probing questions. All we can say is that it’s not our fault! This is STUDIO SEIZURE (and Quarantine Takeover)!

Special thank you to the guys in Future Islands for asking to do this originally and causing us to turn it into a regular show!

BONUS: This section now also includes the Quarantine Takeover shows that we produced remotely with artists since they could not access the station during the COVID-19 Pandemic. These are shows along the lines of the Studio Seizure but entirely produced remotely by the artists, for which we are very grateful!
