Morning Roar – April 28, 2023

Written by on April 30, 2023

The second to last Morning Roar of the academic year was a doozy, literally! Derek Anthony Wilson, a Villanova favorite from his performances at Villanova home men’s and women’s basketball games, was our special in-studio musical guest! Friday marked the day of the release of the new album from Derek’s band, Archpalatine, called Doozies to Daisies. Derek spoke with the crew about the album, his musical background, and what’s in store with Archpalatine, and then he played two songs for us to enjoy in studio, “Be Alright” and “Hypnotized”! We can’t get enough of his music and can’t wait for Derek to join us again in the Fall!

The Morning Roar crew also discussed whether or not they ate their veggies as a kid, and we did a roundup on how ChatGPT has been impacting our semesters. Dom says don’t sleep on it!

In sports, Chris had to face the music on his beloved Milwaukee Bucks’ shocking first round exit.

Finally, our Morning Roar Mind Bender took place with a championship on the line – did Dom clinch it?

Thanks to the fantastic Nick Williams for the photo of the crew!
