Reel Love, The Film Soundtrack Show. Or How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love Tarantino is a show with a really long title. It also is a show which is about film scores whether filled with pop or classical. Each week we'll be hearing some silver screen brilliance from a different theme to set you up for the week ahead. So get your popcorn, get your drink and settle down for the reel start to your week.
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!
Tune in to our show all about culture in York and Yorkshire! If you're stuck for things to do in York or a newbie to the area, then this is the place for you.
Whether you're interested in food, drink, art, museums etc. give the show a cheeky listen.
A Vinyl-Only music show, filled with tracks from our personal collections and what we find crate-digging in the UoY vaults, with possible attempts at wit between songs.
Unlike Beyoncé, we make our own content. Join us as we exercise our contractual right to a maximum of 2 Beyoncé songs in an hour, plus as may features as we can find.
Urban Dictionary defines the term 'Hep Cat' as being: a musical cat who can hang and fit in with other cats that can jive. Making a show for those eclectic hep cats is what we plan to do here. Strictly for musical cats, not necessarily of the feline variety.
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?
Will you still love us when we're 64? Richard and Kim did their last student URY show in June 1976. This show will be hair raising if they had any left.
A show to turn even the lamest of squares into far-out foot tappers.
Over the course of the show, extreme levels of rockabilly will be pumped through the airwaves of URY, from Elvis Presley to The Big Bopper, all with the intention of providing maximum satisfaction.
The show will consist of anecdotes relating to the music in question, explorations into the popular themes and concepts of rockabilly/rock 'n' roll (such as a show dedicated to 'Death Discs'), as well as interviews with individuals who remember watching the rock 'n' roll stars of the 1950s in their heyday. Playing the big hits of the 1950s, as well as with the secret 7" golddust that's been hiding in the attic, this show will provide a roster of early rock 'n' roll and rockabilly that will make you want to turn your fringe into a quiff, your Volkswagen into a Cadillac, and your Carling into a Cherry Coke.
Back for one last hurrah (he's said that before) The Nic Munday Show is back again. Tune in for two hours of fun-filled features, great tunes and just a bit of a laugh. Featuring the old favourite, Film Review Time.
