LOYOLA STUDENT BLOGGERS OFFER A GLIMPSE INTO THE DAY IN THE LIFE OF A LOYOLA STUDENT—WHICH, LIKE OUR STUDENTS, IS ANYTHING BUT TYPICAL.
My alarm sounds, a soothing Jack Johnson song…
Yes, I set three alarms. No, you can’t judge me.
My alarm sounds again, and this time I actually get out of bed. I eat breakfast (it is the most important meal of the day!) and get dressed. I’m out the door around 8:40 a.m. with my roommate, Kat, headed toward WLOY Loyola Radio on the west side of campus.
*The 8:05 a.m. is just a retainer alarm.
I arrive at WLOY and open up the station. I put in an hour of work, taping up the week’s production studio schedule as well as sending out the weekly email to keep our largest-ever DJ staff (around 130 students!) in the loop and doing the best job they possibly can. These emails typically involve many gifs and fun tidbits about what’s happening this week on campus.
This was my gif choice in preparation for Spring Break.
Kat and I are live on the air at WLOY.org, 1620AM Baltimore. We host Kat & Rae in the Morning for two hours once a week, playing all our favorite tunes.
On our first show of the semester, we paid tribute to the late, great David Bowie as well as the late Glenn Frey of The Eagles. Coldplay’s “Adventure of a Lifetime” has been in heavy rotation. (It’s a really great song if you haven’t heard it just yet.)
After jamming out for two hours to our favorite tunes and giving shout-outs to our friends and our moms, we sign off the air.

Kat and I have head to a class we’re both in, a course on podcasting and long-form digital audio.
