Acoustics is back!
A comedic (hopefully) and disastrous (definitely) student radio show, created in the midst of exam season to let out some steam with live acoustic sessions from upcoming artists and curious questions leading to impossible debates.
A look back at the week's events, both local and global with esteemed guests that were definitely not picked at random off the streets.
Oh no. Someone let The Lemon Press into URY.
Misinfo Wars is a satirical news show that combined live improv with pre-recorded skits in order to create an informative (not guaranteed) and amusing (definitely not guaranteed) experience. Our team of professional presenters will be covering campus and national news in a way that manages to avoid all truth and proper analysis. We will also bring you investigative reports from our team of dedicated journalists.
Join The Lemon Press on URY for an experience you won't forget! That may be a bad thing.
PRODUCER'S NOTE [Edited 29/11/2017]: yes it is
On the morning of The Great North Run, a family eagerly try and watch the race on TV, in the hope of seeing Daniel, the youngest member of the family. Unfortunately they keep getting distracted. Whether its arguing over jobs, or working through deeper issues the family has, you will become engrossed in the day to day lives of the household. With a huge cast and a good mix of humour and drama, this is definitely a story to tune in to.
Written by Joe Dolan and Directing and Sound Engineering by Beth Wiffen.
Cast include Sienna Lucrezia as Mum, Beth Prior as Carol, Leo Clasen as Mike, Matthew Chesters as Dad, Dominic Gould as Daniel, Marco Ross as the Announcer and Weatherman, Claire Geller as the Reporter, Kieran Cockburn as the Historian, Euan Brook as the Interviewer, Isaac Saward as the Interviewee and Ella Rainbird-Earley as the Girlfriend.
For a very special one-off show, two so-called 'legends' of URY return.
They entertained listeners for literally minutes while on air together during the heady days of 2016/17, so expect plenty of nostalgia and in-jokes that you definitely won't understand.
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.
Do you enjoy everything nerdy, yeah me neither... I mean I love it! Tune in to get a small taste of the life of this computer science student, who definitely isn't helping the stereotype with this show.
Games! Chat! Drama! Music! Excitement! Definitely not a rip-off of numerous other quiz shows! Join me as I put my guests through 5 grueling rounds of questions and tasks to find out who is the greatest quizzer in all of Yorkshire*!
(*Yorkshire = the small pool of guests who happen to live in York atm)
Exactly what it says on the tin.
Not that radio shows come in tins.
But this one does, and it's a three decade old salted pork tin full of what will probably be recent London migrant and soon-to-be-former PhD student Matt Windsor's last ever show on URY before he finally stops being a student. Expect pretty much everything that can be expected from a washed up student radio DJ that was once referred to as URY's answer to Alan Partridge: an hour of awkward gaps between songs, awkward songs between gaps, and attempts to draw a close on 8ish years of somehow repeatedly being scheduled for shows despite having the radio nous of a loofah. Does anyone still use loofahs?
