Quarantine Takeover Show – Breakforth

Tuesday, May 12th, 2020 by The Professor

This week’s Quarantine Takeover show is hosted by bassist, lead singer and former WLOY DJ Matt Weitzel! Breakforth is a Hard Rock/Post Grunge band with Heavy Metal influences from Baltimore, Maryland. Driving the heart of Breakforth is the chest thumping, gut busting, drum work of Seth Champness Smith. This is complimented by the catchy, yet hard hitting, and unapologetic guitars of Paul Gambichler. Rounding out Breakforth is the rock solid bass grooves and powerful, melodic vocals of Matt Weitzel. The most important thing to us is the music. Our never ending goal is to Breakforth from the norm and bring to the table music that moves people physically and emotionally and lyrics that can inspire others just as our heroes have inspired us. So prepare to jam with one of the hardest rocking bands in the Baltimore music scene. Matt’s going heavy with the show as you can guess, but he’s a pro – currently working at a hard rock FM station here in town that you can find between 97-99 on the dial πŸ™‚ What’s he going to play you ask? That seems like a spoiler so you’ll have to click to see more if you want. Better yet, listen in to find out why he picked these tracks and what’s up with the band! (more…)

Quarantine Takeover Show – Lockemy

Sunday, May 3rd, 2020 by The Professor

Welcome to the first of our new series of Quarantine Takeover shows! We were inspired by our semi-regular Studio Seizure shows on Monday nights combined with the magic of quarantined lockdown to create something new. While the Studio Seizure normally has an artist or band coming into the station and being interviewed while they select all the music for an hour, it just isn’t practical in a time of social distancing and campus closures. So… we decided to let the artists REALLY take over and send us a complete 1 hour show with their influences, favorite bands, musicians you really should hear and (as a bonus) some of their own music and inspirations. We asked around and we have a lot of great local artists building shows for us now and we may just keep this going long after lockdown is lifted in 2028, or whenever. So, without further ado… our first Quarantine Takeover show will be airing Tuesday at 7pm presented by Lockemy and featuring:

Stone Temple Pilots – Sex Type Thing – Atlantic Records
Silverchair – Point of View – Sony Music
Lockemy – In One Place – Self
Incubus – Dig – Island
Depeche Mode – Precious – A Whole Bunch
Andrew Belle – Dark Matter – Collide
Lockemy – The Fog – Self
Seal – Colour – ZTT Records
Beck – Heart is a Drum – Geffen
Lockemy – Little Things – Self
Mutemath – Equals – Warner Brothers
Young The Giant – Mind Over Matter – Fueled By Ramen
Lockemy – Just Maybe – Self

Lockemy has a smart social media mind and keeps it simple so whether it’s Instagram, Facebook, Tik Tok or Twitter you just search for Lockemyofficial and you’ll find him!

If you missed it, the show is in our archives!

Voices of COVID-19 Student Project

Saturday, May 2nd, 2020 by The Professor

Students in Professor Glick’s Radio Storytelling class started this semester with the plan to create a series of pieces focusing on different voices of Loyola and then a series of community voices. Then… things changed…a lot. When faced with the rapid changes and working from home, Professor Glick reoriented the class to tell their stories from where they were. So while we still have voices of Loyola, they are now voices from around the country and community. Listen in as the students report on healthcare providers, businesses, shopping, graduation and much more. Huge kudos to the students and Professor Glick from turning chaos into a fantastic set of voices and reports from around the country.

Anchors: Alex Mitsopoulos (’22) & Julianna Capuano (’22)
Executive Producers: Ryan Whitley (’21) & Bridgett Ballard (’20)
Reporters: Justin Strott (’21), Caroline Suozzi (’22), Emma Toomey (’21), Gabriella Pirisino (’21), Dominika Ortonowski (’20), Caroline Pierno (’20), Madeline Buscone (’21), Rachel Hoos (’22), Diana Jasany (’22)

The Menzingers (Tom May) Interview

Tuesday, November 5th, 2019 by Tara Howell

On Halloween, General Manager Tara Howell, had the chance to sit down with Tom May, guitarist and singer in the Philly band, The Menzingers. The Menzingers were playing in St. Louis that night, where the CBI NSEMC college radio conference was held. Small world that a band from Philly and a person from Baltimore just happened to end up in St. Louis at the time!

You can listen to the interview down below – where Tara and Tom talk about her love of The Menzingers, the release of their album Hello Exile, references in their music, and much more. You can see The Menzingers locally on their Hello Exile Tour at the Black Cat in DC on Wednesday December 4th.

Tara takes up the story: I feel like at this point if you know anything about me, you know that my favorite band is The Menzingers. It seems like I am always wearing a Menzingers shirt, or talking about them for whatever reason. My story with The Menzingers is a long one, but I wouldn’t have discovered then without college radio.

I discovered The Menzingers during my first semester at Loyola and WLOY, and I slowly started loving them more and more. In October of 2015, I saw them on the tour they did with mewithoutYou, and the love was officially sealed. I had never seen a band with such raw energy – a sentiment that I still agree with today.

Many years, and 19 shows later, I accidentally ended up in the same city as the band. On Halloween, I was in St. Louis for a college radio conference, and The Menzingers were coming through as a part of their Hello Exile Tour. I’d like to call it the universe working in my favor because it really was a coincidence, but with how much I love the band, the people in my life tend to think otherwise. Not only did I get to see a Menzingers show for the 20th time, but I also had the chance to sit down with Tom for an interview before the show. You can check out the interview here. It was something I had been dreaming of for a very long time, and I am very grateful that it finally happened!
