At Midnight, All The Agents
A collection of classic Rock songs, mostly 60s and 70s but with more modern songs also.
Man In A Shed
Your weekly adventure in sound! Each week I'll be presenting an hour's worth of classic tracks based on a different particular genre or theme, from classic British post-punk, to East Coast hip-hop, to 60 jazz, soul and funk, and everything in between. If you're already a fan of the weeks special focus then you're sure to hear some of your favourites. If you're not, then the show will be a great way to start! This week, for the debut, I'll be playing a set of great 70s and 80s British post punk and shoegaze, so expect an hour of Joy Division, Public Image Limited, The Cure, Siouxsee and the Banshees, The Fall, Wire, Jesus and Mary Chain, My Bloody Valentine and more awesomeness! Listener participation is always appreciated, so if you have a personal post-punk favourite, then please, request it on air and I'll see if I can fit it in.

A mixture of fine beats and a tale woven across episodes of a movement that changed music – from its beginnings in the block parties of the 1970s to the golden age of the late '80s and modern day manifestations.

A 'carefully' 'crafted' mix of music, both obscure and obvious, from the 70s, 80s, and (god forbid!) the 90s.

In Between Days

Taking you through '70s and '80s post punk and indie through to modern day alternative rockers, In Between Days begins on a lively note and gradually dials down the distortion with the classics (and the not-so-classics) of indie, rock and britpop, plus a special guest, plus shoegaze.


Have I Got Ouse For You

We're back! (Ouse's back, alright, alright). Tune in to Have I Got Ouse For You for dodgy jingles, dodgier music, very dodgy links, somehow even dodgier jokes and a somewhat sincere attempt to wind up the week for our listeners, now with a new timeslot - Sunday at 9pm. 

Yes, we started at 11pm and now we're there. I don't care what the others think, I want that flagship slot.

Jen's Boom Box

It's summer 1975. You've got your flares on and a Harvey Wallbanger in hand. The boombox has just been invented and somehow your mate David has copped one. Van Morrison is blaring. No one knows what drum and bass is. Life is good.

Bringing you all the best bops from before Britney took over - pre 90s tunes only. Join Jen and Hannah in the golden age of rock n roll, with some spicy disco curveballs thrown in for a good time.


The Long Song Show

Most songs played on commerical radio are just over 3 minutes long, which if we're being honest is just too short. 

So welcome to The Long Song Show, where we don't play anything less than 5 minutes long, because long songs are just better.

The only show on the airwaves where you're guaranteeed to hear an uncut Tubular Bells...eventually...

Alumni Shows: Retrospectre! with Matt Windsor

If Mr Motivator can make a surprise comeback to airwaves in these interesting times... so can Retrospectre!  Yes, it's that URY show from the early 2010s with that person that said those words and played those songs.  Join Matt 'Not Stratford' Windsor from the comfort of their inadequately acoustically designed bedroom in North Yorkshire as they haunt URY like the spectre of leftist political ideology with choice cuts from the 80s, 70s, and the 80s again, while complaining about nearly being 30.

Alumni Shows: The Magical Mystery Music Machine

At the start of each show, my hastily-written computer code picks a random date from the 60s, 70s or 80, and I have to fill 58 minutes with music and news from that date. The URY record library gets a bit patchy if we go back to the 60s, so wish me luck!


Alumni Shows: Party Like It's 1991

Exactly 30 years since leaving York - and URY - 80s throwback Richard Hollingham plays non-stop (ish) danceable music from the 80s and 90s to recreate that summer '91 feeling...
