I Never Knew Host in the Jamaica Observer

Friday, May 8th, 2020 by The Professor

I Never Knew Radio host and I Never Knew TV host Linton “Junior” Hinds (’06) found himself featured in the Jamaica Observer for his documentary story on roots tonics in Jamaica. In addition to hosting his weekly radio show here on WLOY, Junior has a massive catalog of videos on the history of Rastafarianism, African Diaspora, Reggae and Jamaican culture all housed on his YouTube channel. With more than 10 million views, it’s easy to understand why The Observer picked up on his work. More and more people are finding and sharing his important stories and interviews with artists, philosophers, medical professionals and more. Do yourself a favor and check out both the radio show (every Sunday 9-11am) and the YouTube channel. We know you’ll find yourself saying “I Never Knew…” more than once!

Retro Eddie – The Food Episode

Friday, April 24th, 2020 by The Professor

Today on the Retro Rockin Roadshow from 7-9pm Retro Eddie is going deep, into your tummy! This week’s theme, suggested by a listener, covers food and food themed songs. From the early songs like “Big Rock Candy Mountain” to The Archies (not the obvious one) to the many influences of Jim Henson, this show will leave you hungry for more… Sorry. But really, from the 1920s to the 1970s you’re going to be surprised what oddities our Retro Eddie digs up for your ears to feast upon. He’s always interested in comments, theme suggestions and more. Feel free to comment here, on our social media or email wloy@loyola.edu with your ideas. Eddie is one of the few people still on campus so he has access to the whole WLOY library! Feel free to stump him. Meanwhile, PLAY MUSIC!

Saturday, April 18th, 2020 by The Professor

It’s VINYLTHON 2020! Originally scheduled for today April 18, but rescheduled (along with Record Store Day) to June 20 but WE DON’T CARE! We are doing TWO days of Vinylthon instead of one. It’s just how we roll… Tune in all day for shows that are 100% spun from vinyl starting at 1am today and running through midnight! You’ll hear current DJ shows as well as alumni shows in one and two hour formats. WLOY has received a golden slipmat every year for doing at least 12 hours of all vinyl and this year even though we’re not making the usual full 24 we’re still running 18 hours of all vinyl shows!

What is Vinylthon you ask? Read the press release below and find out more!

Over 100 radio stations will go vinyl-only for charity event Vinylthon 2020, with many stations broadcasting from their DJ’s homes

Despite severe disruptions caused by the ongoing COVID-19 crisis, across the USA and the world, radio stations will celebrate the unique format of vinyl by going vinyl-only on Vinylthon, April 18, 2020. Organizers hope it will provide essential comfort to listeners through entertainment during this difficult time.
