Jonas Carping Interview

Tuesday, November 10th, 2020 by The Professor

By: Aly Martinez, Music Director
I had the pleasure of interviewing Jonas Carping, a folk (or Americana or ?) artist from Sweden about his new album “Strangers.” In the interview we really went in depth on inspiration and the process of making music. Jonas gave great insight on the importance of being true to the music and having everything be as real and raw as possible. We also discussed the importance of family and friends and the way they have shaped his career and music. We also talked about how he has been doing with the pandemic and how that has affected his life and career. Overall we had a very interesting conversation about music and the inspiration behind his work.

Quarantine Takeover – Queen Kyla Vera

Tuesday, October 13th, 2020 by The Professor

This week we’re joined by the amazing Queen Kyla Vera of Metalachi! She’s the rocking metal violin powerhouse soloist you won’t believe unless you see her live. We were lucky to have the monsters of mariachi come by the station once upon a pre-COVID time and had a blast with them all (Check out their Studio Seizure!). Kyla is highlighting some great music this week – all bands and artists that she has performed with (or Metalachi has) including some incredible violinists and some rock legends (Suicidal Tendancies! Lamb of God!) so tune in and check it out. Luckily her crazed kitten Gizmo stopped trying to eat the microphone and resorted to just attacking Kyla so the show could be finished… We can’t wait for Metachi to stomp it’s way back east again from LA soon!!

We love it when we get some press, especially in the likes of trade magazine Radio World. Professor Rob Quicke from William Paterson University wrote an article covering college radio station spring reactions and fall preparations for the COVID-19 pandemic in Radio World Magazine. WLOY gets a bit of coverage for both spring and fall and mention of our fantastic Quarantine Takeover show series. Yay us!

Quarantine Takeover – Liminal Drifter

Tuesday, September 29th, 2020 by The Professor

This week we find ourselves with the furthest ever Quarantine Takeover host with Liminal Drifter from Perth, Australia! join us Tuesday or Thursday night at 7pm Eastern and be prepared for some amazing ambient grooves from all over the world and some special rarities. Liminal Drifter is an ongoing travelogue between identities, physical places and states of consciousness. Many of these dreamy, evocative slices of ambient electronica evolved on hand-held mobile devices, away from the studio, while traveling or visiting new places. This sense of contemplative, exploratory rootlessness imbues his work with the wistfulness and open narrative we often associate with travel. (more…)
