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.
Hello! Brew yourself a cup of tea, grab a biscuit (or 25, we won't judge), sit back, and enjoy the show! Join us for a chat about anything from the ups and downs of student life at the University of York to baking and, your weekly dose of much-neededâ¨ serotoninâ¨.

Have a wonderful day!

Two feel-good hours of Josh playing some fantastic music as well him going off on stories about his various encounters with York's territorial wildlife, pathetically terrifying experiences on his bike and arguably informative features, how could you not listen?
It's Gina and Jamie. It's third year. We're still on the radio. We're still funny. Tune in.
Two of York’s freshers hit the airwaves for the first time to share with you their experiences and tales of life in the small apple. Shows will often be a cocktail of light hearted humour and bad music choices.
'Page one (we don't explain names)' is an easy-going and fresh take on radio, featuring the brave Matt and handsome Will in talks about our lives and life in general. If you've ever wondered what radio sounds like, now's your chance. Do as everyone else will be doing: tune in and die!
Music will be peachy and brilliant.
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!
Come listen to this American chat about life, love, heartbreaks, travel (or anything, really) with her friends. Sweet tunes included.
Join Will Batchelor as he starts your day with a yawn, questioning why on a day where he could have a lie in he chose to do a breakfast show. Get going with some up beat bangers to try and make you leave the comfort of your bed and got on with another day of life.
The dynamic duo are back on the airwaves for another year to share with you their experiences and tales of life in the small apple. Shows will continue be a cocktail of light hearted humour and bad music choices.
Putting the Fun back into Sunday afternoons, we'll be bringing you our favourite tunes of the week with some chatter about life, reviews, and all things awesome!
Matt Windsor should really be writing up his thesis. Instead, he's doing yet another URY radio show, focusing on music older than him sandwiched between awkward observations about life as a washed-up postgraduate. Oh dear.
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.
Every week, Matt and Ollie trawl through the lives of some of music's greatest recording artists, both new and old, to find out what makes them tick. The writers of the classic guitar riff, the delicate jazz piano, or the catchy pop chorus gain new life as you rediscover them with the guys.
2 women discussing love, life, and geese.
Sam sits down to play some music, some games and chat with some guests about whatever interests him.
Join Scarlet as she wakes you up and welcomes you to York with some chill chat and tunes. If you've any questions on what York life is like, send them in via the message box!
