Music, cookies, dishwasher, Ireland and other random words hopefully stringing together to make a sentence. Maybe it's a spin-off from the DAndy Lie-in because Andrew never let me press any buttons... who knows? Eventually I'll find out but hoping to have lots of guests on some you'll know and some you wont. At times I think I mightn't know either but hopefully it'll be humorous enough to merit a show.

Really Awesomely Rare Entertainment. Indie isn’t that indie anymore. Everyone loves Kings Of Leon, Killers and Bloc Party, and these bands get a lot of plays on URY and even on stations like Radio 1. RARE plays quality indie and rock from bands you haven’t necessarily heard of yet, but really should love.Including interviews with bands and singer songwriters, special acoustic studio sessions, and the wise words of the presenters, whose hilarious ramblings veer from irreverent banter to heavy-handed satire, with just the right amount of sexual tension.

'Creditors' by August Strindberg
The last production of the URY Festival of Drama from the national award winning drama team at University Radio York. Anxiously awaiting the return of his new wife, Adolph finds solace in the words of a stranger. But comfort soon turns to destruction as old wounds are opened, insecurities are laid bare and former debts are settled. Regarded as Strindberg's most mature work, "Creditors" is a darkly comic tale of obsession, honour and revenge. David Greig's version premiered at the Donmar Warehouse, London, in September 2008 and now comes to URY with an incredible student cast directed by Lewis Gray. The production, starring Georgia Bird, Ryan Lane and Dan Wood will be in the third week of the URY Festival of Radio Drama!
The Graveyard
A shot in the dark. Riffing (very loosely) on a different topic each week, perhaps something in the news, perhaps something more random, I'll be playing anything and everything from the last few thousand years of music (give or take)... I might even say a few words as well if you're lucky.

Big Cheese on Campus

The music equivalent of a shot at Willow, this show revels in the music which is so bad that it's kind of good. Rather than gently getting you through Monday, I instead will attempt to get you singing along to songs you hoped you'd forgotten the words to. Perfect for not doing work to, Monday evenings will never be the same again. DISCLAIMER: Monday nights will probably be the same as every other Monday as the presenter has no control over the days or weather or any cool powers like that (even though he thinks he does). The Presenter takes no liability for any injuries caused by people suddenly dancing to any of the tunes played or the insult that this show is to good music. Terms, conditions and yolo applies.


It’s too early for Pre-drinking, meaning we’re not nearly ready enough to say the glorious word “prinking” – unless of course, you decide to join us! Stef and Taz, your radio buddies readying you up for Prink O’clock, when you’re getting ready to take out the voddy and leave your dignity at home. Whether you’re Fresher’s like us, or you want to return to ‘Fresher’ days, we will be broadcasting music that takes you down Memory Lane and tracks that psyche you up for one of York’s Best Student Nights!


Capturing the eclectic nature of pretentious tomfoolery and japes from Daisy Hale and Bryony Cleary. With a current buzzword every week, we talk (more often fight) about music, movies and the current fragility of our ecosystem in the face of growing climate change. 

Sam and Mat's Musical Miscellany

Music. Incompetance. Requests. That Daft punk bed. Mispronouncing the word 'miscellany'. All this, and (not a lot) more besides.

Tweedle Dum, De and Me

Show comprising 3 final year undergraduates taking a look at that inevitable question of 'what next?'... through the medium of entertainment. Alongside a special guest each week (we'll sort these- people with varying weird and wonderful things lined up for them after uni), we'll look to sift through one more potential life choice every week as we count down towards the end of university. The planned format of the show will look to include an interview with our special guest as they join us for a whole host of potential silly features including: 

- Helen and Judy's travelling tips. Being seasoned travellers of Asia, the pair will reveal another wacky story from their travelling experiences each week. 
- 'Fit it in my Fro' - special guest will look to fit a different object each week into Joe's afro. Feature will also include leaderboard based on nature of object chosen and how many they managed to fit in his hair.
- 'Joe's chimes' or a title to that effect. Comic song, recorded specially for the show every week, written by Joe on a subject messaged in to the show/something to do with the idea of 'what's next?'
- Interview with our special guest on what his/her plan is for next year and/or what they are currently doing having now graduated. Many exciting people lined up!
- 'Decipher Judy/Helen' or title to that effect- feature involving Joe/listeners attempting to guess certain scottish accented words in English or Gaelic.

Show's music will probably be around 6 songs and will be a competition between Joe, Helen and Judy (2 songs each) on who has picked the best music for that day. Potentially based around the 'what next' theme for that show! 

In a nutshell, light-hearted entertainment show looking at the serious question of 'what's next?'. Aimed then at current final years but also applicable for all years. Will also look to have jingle for the show- playing on idea of 'tweedle Dum' (Helen/Judy), tweedle De (Helen/Judy) and Me (Joe).

Fishtail: tales of sounds and words

A series of four specials exploring the relationship between sounds and words and other forms of art. Each week, we will be discussing the connections between different pieces of work with a series of special guests. We'll be featuring great and innovative music, writing and art written by our favourite established artists and york students.

The idea of fishtail comes from Ouroboros, which is the image of a fish or reptile biting its own tail. It signifies something that is constantly recreating itself, something that pre-existed and is so powerful that it must continue. Of course, it also comes from the notion of a fisherman's tale. In our programme, we're going to be 'biting our tales' and circulating from one art form to the next.
