I’m leaving URY – but fear not! I’m departing in style with 26 hours of radio – enough to even make me sick of myself.
Goodbye to URY! My actual final show of the year - or is it...?
A continuation of the A Classical Teatime special on music for Summer Nights. We now delve into the world of music created a bit more recently than Mahler and Strauss. Join Isaac, David and Keoni through a whistle-stop tour of all music modern, summery and ... night-y?

It's a Christmas miracle! Cup 7 already?? I know! Here's the second chat I had originally for Keoni's Cave on URY with my pal Callum. I do much of the same as in the previous episode, actually, so watch out for more terrible singing and a moderately disastrous attempt at preparing M&S's Christmas Blend. Merry Christmas!
Cup 6 has arrived to boost/banish [delete as applicable] your Christmas blues! Originally, recorded for Keoni's Cave on University Radio York (URY), here's an expanded version of the chat I had with Molly that includes terrible Irish pronunciations, plenty of non-Christmas-based nattering and a clip shoehorned in of me taking a swig of some warm juice. 2020's never been better...
My exams – or ‘alternative assessments’ – are now over, so I found some free time, at last! Recorded near the start of the lockdown, in cup 5 my guest Jimmy and I talk a little about life in Toronto and play a rather self-explanatory game called What am I talking about? which actually wasn’t that straightforward. But, let’s be honest, it wouldn’t be, would it…?
Cup 4 is the overflow stuff from the last episode - yes, we really did record so much! Listen to the rest of the Welsh maraca game and hear João talk about Asturias (for a bit). In a surprising turn of events, the drink in the title comes from my guest - a Twinings English Breakfast Tea, drunk late after the watershed.
The third cup brings together two people who haven't spoken in yonks. João and I discuss bourbon(s) (creams) and Asda Smart Price meatballs, and play another game with maracas that had to be cut short and shoved into another episode because we were going on for too long! Today's coffee - an intensity of 8 - comes from Taylors of Harrogate, who describe this coffee as "a big, beautiful Brazilian roast, like sinking your teeth into a hazelnut praline."
Goodness, he's only gone and done it when you all thought he'd given up or forgotten about it! Cup 2 is a Kazaar, a very strong (12) brew made with both Arabica and Robusta beans. Rachael is my guest - join me as we talk a bit about languages and play a game based on products from Ikea.

The music video to end all music videos. Watch the masterpiece now!
I spent a year working with the team at the ITV Hub and, luckily, I’ve documented it for your eager eyes.
Where it all began…
The series where I first tried my hand at radioing. Did it go well? Let’s not talk about it. It was so low quality, I still haven’t finished editing the programmes. Why not have a listen to the few that are available…?
Monitor the latest updates here, so you’ll be second to know (well, I’ve gotta know about them first, haven’t I?)!
