The old guys are back, but will you still love us now we are 64?  For

format for a looser themed selection.  There's still likely to be  plenty of

at least Richard will try to show they haven't completely lost touch with
current music. No origami this time.

Alumni Takeover: The Scott Bryan Show

From 2007-2010, The Scott Bryan Show was broadcast on University Radio York. It was a show that I reckon I will remember for the rest of my damn life.

Alumni Takeover: The Big Sofa

The Big Sofa graced the York Uni airwaves all the way back in 2001, when Rach was a psychology undergrad living in a breezeblock prison called Goodricke C Block.

Since then Rach has graduated (hurray! They said it would never happen!), moved away (now living in Mordor (Morden), London), worked three different jobs (evil corporate advertising; bonkers Virgin Radio; the BBC), birthed three kids (two boys, one girl), become a stand up comedian (three years in, still haven't done Live at the Apollo) and QUIT RADIO (sob.)

This last one makes her incredibly sad.

So Rach is ecstatic to be back behind a microphone. Join her for this one off two hour show and listen to the joy plastered all over her face.

Alumni Takeover: Big Breakfast With Pete and Cat

For a very special one-off show, two so-called 'legends' of URY return.

Nevertheless, it'll be worth a listen, just for an example of how not to move on from university.

They'll bring you some stonking tunes, funny features, and magical memories that will wind the clock back to when URY was just a pre-pubescant 48-year-old.
