DJ Spotlight: DreamGAZE

Friday, February 2nd, 2024 by Liz Kosik

Show name: DreamGAZE

DJs: Terence Hannum, Erica Burgner-Hannum, and Rob Savillo

When: Thursdays @ 6 PM

Q: Name of your show along with a brief description:

A: DreamGAZE is a show I do with my spouse Erica Burgner-Hannum and bandmate Rob Savillo, of The Holy Circle, where we play our favorite shoegaze and dreampop tracks and interview bands and DJs – but we ask them to pick their favorite shoegaze or dreampop and talk about it.

Q: Why did you choose to host a show at WLOY?

A: I also do DEAD AIR the show devoted to horror soundtracks we run in October, and I’ve been doing that for almost a decade with WLOY. So when Erica, Rob, and I started an event night called dreamGAZE at The Crown to kind of focus on the growing scene in the region, the radio show made it easier to loop in the guests we bring in and the shows write themselves.

Q: What is your favorite part of hosting a show at WLOY?

A: It’s very easy as a community member and John champions your ideas and content, offers suggestions. I like finding new bands like The December Sound or hearing great stories from our guests like ON and Pale Saints.

Q: Top played artist/s on your show:

A: Ringo Deathstarr, No Joy, Slowdive, DIIV

Q: Word of advice for prospective DJs?

A: Curate your sets, and know the info about the releases, think of it like a story you’re trying to tell. Keep it tight and focused. Also bring a friend, or two, who is as passionate as you are and bring on guests.

WLOY thanks Terence, Erica, and Rob for their mutual love of music and dedication to the station! Tune in to DreamGAZE every Tuesday @ 6 PM. 🙂

Mark Hopkins – Studio Seizure

Tuesday, April 4th, 2023 by The Professor

We are very excited to have Studio Seizure return with great local guitarist (among other things) Mark Hopkins. Mark has played numerous shows on campus for us (rumor has it he liked one of our posters enough to swipe it). He’s fronted his own bands The Hotel, The Pretty War and is back with the resurrected Tribe of Ben.

Did we mention he’s also got a great interview podcast of his own and is perpetually playing with all manner of guitar pedals. Sit back and enjoy a deeper dive into what makes his musical mind happy, and how Pearl Jam and Dawes are currently battle for #1 in his heart. Studio Seizure returns 7pm Tuesday!

DJs: Sophie LaBella and Nez Blaho

Q: Tell us a bit about your show

A: The Starry Night Show. The theme is pretty much just music we both really enjoy! We have super similar music tastes (91% match on Spotify) and want to share some of our favorite songs with everyone. We also have a section towards the end of our set where we both throw it back/slow it down with more relaxing, “oldie” style music that everyone remembers. Both Nez and I love art (Nez is a theatre major and I am a studio art minor) so our show reflects our love of art through our name with Van Gogh. 🙂 (more…)

NEW SHOW: “Fed After Midnight” with Greg Meredith

Thursday, December 8th, 2022 by Liz Kosik

Show: “Fed After Midnight” with Greg Meredith

Air-time: Tuesdays from 12-1am 

“Fed After Midnight” is a new late-night/early-morning show that airs from 12-1am on Tuesdays and showcases mainly metal music with some integration of hard rock and alt-rock. The title of the show is based on the 1984 movie Gremlins; if you fed a Gremlin after midnight, it would turn from a fuzzy, cuddly creature into a scaly, violent goblin who wreaks havoc and mischief, which Greg thinks reflects some aspects of metal music. How cool!

On the show, Greg discusses interesting facts behind the songs he plays such as the album it’s from, the band who wrote it, the time it was released, etc. He also includes why the songs hold importance to him and why he has chosen them for that specific episode. Greg reveals that he has recently started diving into metal music and all of its subgenres, but has already learned so much about the music, its composition, and where it came/comes from. We love the versatility!

Be sure to tune in to WLOY Loyola Radio to hear from Greg Meredith’s “Fed After Midnight” and more of your university favorites!
