Quarantine Takeover Show – B. Newb

Thursday, May 21st, 2020 by The Professor

Up next on the Quarantine Takeover Show roster (Tuesday & Thursday at 7pm) is a 27 year old MC out of Baltimore, MD. He might also be a 2015 WLOY graduate and past winner of our Battle of the Bands. He draws influences from his own experiences as well as his friends’ to create music that focuses on storytelling. Inspired by Kid Cudi, Andre 3000, and Childish Gambino.

His motto: Just be yourself. Did we mention the banana costume? That’s a story for another day… Ladies and Gentlemen, we present the artist we know as Brandon, and you know as B. Newb!

Quarantine Takeover Show – Matt Muirhead

Saturday, May 16th, 2020 by The Professor

This week we bring in local artist, instrument maker and musician Matt Muirhead. When asked for a bio, he presented this: “Matt Muirhead is a lover of Baltimore, a lover of cats and a painter of both.” It doesn’t mention his making of kalimbas, pairing with McKenzie to form the band Canopy, which opened our Honfest stage several times, his crankies and many other tidbits. You can listen to his previous Studio Seizure episode to learn more. In this Quarantine Takeover Matt is wandering back to the 1980s and exploring Japanese ambient music because he can. Tune in Tuesday at 7pm and enjoy!

You can find Matt and some of his creations on Instagram @mattmuirheadartist @bmorepuppets @muirheadmusic or on his website www.mattmuirhead.co (more…)

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 🙂 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…)

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!
