35 Years of Loyola Radio!

Thursday, November 18th, 2010 by The Professor

We’re celebrating 35 years of radio at Loyola this Saturday! It’s the exact day in 1975 when WVLC (The Voice of Loyola College) first signed on to broadcast in the cafeteria. It evolved into WLCR and ran until the mid 1990s before being wiped out in the renovation of the Student Center. In 2002 we restarted WLOY and in March of 2003 we went 24/7/365 and haven’t looked back. Now we are, along with lots of station alumni from the 70’s and 80’s. Listen in from 1-7pm on Saturday to check out all the DJs as they get back on the air again! We’ve got their original jingle and even their original vinyl!
