URY PM: Wake Up With Mr. West

The breakfast show for people that couldn't sleep.

Half Asleep

Breakfast: When The Flip Even Is Pancake Day? We Butter Get Cooking!

So satiate your ears with the sounds of PANCAKES! and the ocassional interjections of many sleep deprived housmates.

I'm So Turned On Right Now: Autumn 2020

Like the nocturnal students we are, URY is emerging from it's COVID Cubby-hole in the middle of the night to kick off a brand new term of broadcasting.  Join our most sleepless presenters for an night (morning?) of light entertainment before your inevitable 9am welcome lecture. At least you won't have to get out of bed to attend...

A Classical Teatime

I, Isaac, wanted an excuse (as a proud Northerner) to drink ginger-infused tea by becoming a member of the upper-middle class. Keoni (a pensioner) wants to feel young again by utilising the vast array of "youf'" words he's learned at university to abuse me from the sidelines every time I make a mistake.

Together, we will undoubtedly make a bedtime show with the singular potential to lull anyone to sleep - but only when we're talking...

Recording in Progress

I probably won't be awake for this show. That's okay though, I'm hopefully using the time to test our automatic playout software. :)

Thursday Night Fever Dream

Sleep is for the weak. Radio is for the strong. Join Towells and Q for a show that may or may not be an out-of-body experience for all involved.


Yeah this show is still called Thursday Night Fever Dream even though it's on Friday now. Deal with it, we're lazy.

Breakfast: Alarm's Set Too Early

Join me as I regret waking up just before the show, in an attempt to persuade myself that I'll have a productive day by doing an early show beforehand!

Now the end of term has arrived, and we don’t have anything better to do with ourselves, we thought we’d ruin our sleep schedules for a laugh. Join the URY gang as we pull an all nighter for your amusement, and to prove that we can.


Alex Tant-Brown has been given the Early Late Shift - late in the day, but early in this all-night extravaganza. Grab a midnight snack and join us for two hours of sleep-deprived revelry.
