New Show! Hip Hop Revisited with Saleem

Friday, August 7th, 2020 by The Professor

Saturday 3-4pm August 8
2-4pm every Saturday following!

Come explore the history and world of Hip-Hop every week with local artist Saleem!

I could introduce him to you as Saleem the emcee, or I could introduce you to him as Saleem the producer. However I think the most apropos title would be Saleem, the dopest emcee on production! Starting out with an ASRX-PRO and a microphone, Saleem has been blazing his trail through hip-hop’s indie scene for several years. Performing with luminaries such as Common, The Roots, KRS-One, Rakim, and The Wu-Tang clan, to name a few, tends to hone and sharpen your skills. These experiences led him to craft his highly regarded debut album, which now lends its title to this new show, Hip-Hop Revisited. A bold title for a bold project that served as a welcome, and refreshing, introduction into the world of this multifaceted artist; or as one writer described him, “The embodiment of hip-hop’s evolution.” (more…)

Quarantine Takeover – Saleem

Sunday, July 26th, 2020 by The Professor

This week’s Quarantine Takeover is a study in the sounds of Hip Hop protest. Saleem is bringing back the songs that inspired him and will keep protesters fueled up to demand change in the world. I could introduce him to you as Saleem the emcee, or I could introduce you to him as Saleem the producer. However I think the most apropos title would be Saleem, the dopest emcee on production! Starting out with an ASRX-PRO and a microphone, Saleem has been blazing his trail through hip-hop’s indie scene for several years. Performing with luminaries such as Common, The Roots, KRS-One, Rakim, and The Wu-Tang clan, to name a few, tends to hone and sharpen your skills. These experiences led him to craft his highly regarded debut album, Hip-Hop Revisited. A bold title for a bold project that served as a welcome, and refreshing, introduction into the world of this multifaceted artist; or as one writer described him, “The embodiment of hip-hop’s evolution.”

Retro Rocking Road Show – The Terrible Twos

Friday, July 24th, 2020 by The Professor

This Weeks Theme: The Terrible Twos

Featured Artists: The Beatles, Credence Clearwater Revival, WAR, Billy Joel, ABBA, and Journey

Every week Retro Eddie puts together a uniquely themed show for Friday night 7-9pm. He is not immune to having fun with the themes, or digging deep for tunes back to the beginning of recorded music. This week Eddie explores the bands that came oh-so-close but didn’t crack the #1 spot on the Billboard charts. Firmly lodged at #2 and climbing no higher – some of these tracks were so pervasive it will surprise you they never logged that all important #1 hit.

Did you tune into to the the Retro Rockin Roadshow last Friday? If you did we hope you enjoyed the theme of “the 60’s”. If you missed it you can always check out the playlists from past shows on the show page!

Do you Have suggestion or recommendation for Eddie’s show? Would you like to request a song or a specific theme? Please email your request to wloy@loyola.edu you can also DM your request through our vast array of social media.

Quarantine Takeover – Doc Pine & Bobby

Tuesday, July 21st, 2020 by The Professor

This week we lost control of the studio to Doc Pine and his tiny sidekick Bobby. We’re not sure how but sit back and enjoy Bobby giving Doc Pine the respect he deserves. Doc Pine combines creepy old Appalachian music, off kilter honky-tonk, murder ballads, yodeling, heavy rock jingles, and junkyard blues stomps in the hope of one day getting invited to the Sadie Hawkins Dance. He claims his songs “have been filtered through ten feet of sugar maple charcoal, which imparts a distinct smoothness to the music.” He has been cleared of all charges pertaining to a Louisiana bank heist in the summer of ‘09.

New Show! The Volcano Chronicles

Monday, July 20th, 2020 by The Professor

This week we have something special for you – a new show hosted by Daniel Jones of the band 7th Order, featuring music from his 40 years of playing in bands, touring and recording. We’ll hear his road stories, meet some great musicians and have some amazing guest interviews. Stick with us every Wednesday from 7-8pm Eastern (that’s 1-2pm Hawaiian time) for new episodes and stories. You can also check out Daniel’s Quarantine Takeover show and the 7th Order band social media and website in between shows episodes.

Their first recording sessions took place in December 2001 but 7th Order’s roots are much deeper. The band has, at various times, been joined by veteran British guitarist Martin Pugh (formally of the 60’s British band, Steamhammer, as well as Armageddon with The Yardbirds vocalist Keith Relf, and “The Rod Stewart Album” with Ron Wood & Keith Emerson), drummer Tim Kelliher (of Randy Hansen’s Machine Gun), and legendary American rock guitarist Geoff Thorpe (of Vicious Rumors). Reminiscent of blues-rock bands like The Rolling Stones & The Yardbirds, with progressive undertones ala Led Zeppelin, there’s something in there for all of you. Their most recent release (June 2020) is a track titled “Voyager”, a tribute to the late American guitarist, Ronnie Montrose – and is a benefit for the incredible Sweet Relief Musicians Fund.

Quarantine Takeover Show – 7th Order

Friday, July 3rd, 2020 by The Professor

This week’s Quarantine Takeover show comes from overseas again! This time from the magical land of Hawai’i! We welcome Daniel Jones of the band 7th Order recording his show on the side of Kilahuea in the town of Volcano. The show is a tribute to late guitarist Jesse Ed Davis, who played with the pantheon of great rockers in the 60s and 70s.

Their first recording sessions took place in December 2001 but 7th Order’s roots are much deeper. The band has, at various times, been joined by veteran British guitarist Martin Pugh (formally of the 60’s British band, Steamhammer, as well as Armageddon with The Yardbirds vocalist Keith Relf, and “The Rod Stewart Album” with Ron Wood & Keith Emerson), drummer Tim Kelliher (of Randy Hansen’s Machine Gun), and legendary American rock guitarist Geoff Thorpe (of Vicious Rumors). Reminiscent of blues-rock bands like The Rolling Stones & The Yardbirds, with progressive undertones ala Led Zeppelin, there’s something in there for all of you.
