Playing music, for you ears!
It only comes round once a year, but the music team will be telling your their hot takes and predictions about the Brit Awards and the winners as it goes out live on air. Basically we are just planning on being Jack Whitehall but infinetely less funny. Tune in to arguably the biggest BritPop night of the year <3
A carefully curated selection of broadly "alternative" (whatever that means) tunes from the classic to the eclectic, with a special nod of fondness to the arty and pretentious. Yes, "classic alternative" is kind of a contradiction in terms, but here at Speed of Life, we embrace paradox to the point of meaninglessness. Occasional themed weeks provide welcome respite from the usual swirl of chaos.
A show devoted to the finding of good quality, free music from the website bandcamp. If you enjoy music, but have little money and a clean consience then this is the show for you. After each show i will post the links to find each song i play, and the album it came from, completely free.
A show based around your requests, "All Things Go" - If appropriate of course. The show will vary from all sorts of genres and we will play as many of your requests. We will also fit in a few of our own requests too, but make sure you listen in as you can take control this hour.
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?
Bringing you a random selection of whatever tunes fall out of Matthew's metaphorical music album this week.
It's like URY Jukebox, but different.
Expect the good, bad and the ugly... If you like even one song, success!
Songs from the late 80s through to the present day that have made it into the public conciousness, but aren't in their own right hits, or a least aren't played regularly nowadays
Playing music from the leftfield side of 70's 80s & 90s, for the final show of the term Stewart explores highlights of the NME Top 100 Albums, originally broadcast on URY in 1990.
Today's world is so dense, ever-changing, and fast: the amount of notifications we get to our phones every day is overwhelming, but what really matters? Tune in for current affairs chat, space for reflection on the salient news, and some music to break up the mundanity of it all!
Once again URY is across campus for all of freshers week, giving anyone new to York a HUGE WELCOME. There will be games, the latest and greatest tunes, competitions and of course PRIZES! But don't just listen On Air, Online or On Tap... Head over to each of our daily broadcasts to get involved in the full 4D experience
Bread is very underrated - but I think it's great! Join me as I discuss different types of bread and wonder if there are any bread-themed songs on the system.
Expect: Norwegian banters, funny conspiracies, chit chat about life, Dictator fun facts, and last but not least: Epic movie music, and movie talks
May my voice be with you!
Yet again, the spooky, kooky, Suzuki (no endorsement) night of Hallo'weenie is apon us.
The URY Speech Team is going to narrate your night of trick'n'treating with many haunting stories.
If you have a heart attack due to any story due to this show we are not liable, but also want to hear about it, cus damn son...
The Excellence Awards present an opportunity for students to celebrate the work of staff across the University of York who have a positive impact on their academic experience.

Join us live as we celebrate their incredible work, and meet some special guests!
We break the schedule layout to bring you one last show from former programme controller Eiron Page, and pass the baton by way of radio to the new programme controller - Naomi - and also play some music, ostensibly chosen by you. The PM show Eiron always meant to do, but never did; because leaving things to the last minute is how he do.
*** The only show on URY to double as a bug report!™
All of the fun and frolicks of our AM Antidote but shifted later into the day. Let's face it, exams are over, you're not going to be out of bed much before noon anyway.
Wake up happy with Anna Henley and Alex Osborne.
