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?
(10/10) Summer Nights: We look at how composers have reacted to summer, and more specifically to summer evenings and nights.
(2/10) Join me for a show with a different person every day. This time, it’s Colin Roitt.
(1/10) Join me for a show with a different person every day. This time, it’s Isaac Lowe.
(8/10) Humour in Music: Can music, without words, actually be funny? In tonight’s programme, we look at classical music that may, or may not, be funny, and discuss what makes it funny (if indeed it is).
(7/10) Guess the Theme: David makes us guess the theme for today’s edition – and I want you to try and work out why I’m angry.
(3/3) Live from Studio Red, a special version of the show that’s at an hour when students are more likely to consume their breakfasts.
(6/10) I’ve returned! Hooray! Join me, Isaac and David as we decide (well, Isaac did) to broadcast from beside the toilet in a pub. A very good idea, Isaac. Well done.
Losing my URY studio virginity, I managed to wake up at a ridiculous hour and appear on Isaac’s “so early it’s pre-breakfast” show, much to our surprise…
It’s Eurovision Week! Join us for an after-party where Michael forgot to turn on his mic – surely that’s reason enough to tune in…
I floor managed ERN: The After Show, part of the YUSU Elections Results Night 2021 coverage – so, you won’t see me, but I was behind the scenes working my magic…
(5/10) Mahler and his Circle: We’re back for a second series of abject commentary and lovely music. In my final episode, we explore Mahler and the people around him, playing music from his own catalogue as well as that of his friends, acquaintances and colleagues.
(4/10) Semicentennial Celebrations: We’re back for a second series of abject commentary and lovely music. We’re celebrating 2021’s musical celebrations, with composers and compositions stretching back in fifty-year increments up to 1571. Featuring Haydn, Albinoni and Verdi.
(3/10) We’re delving into pieces for the theatre this week, with picks from Puccini to Stravinsky and chat about concert halls and leg-room.
(2/10) Join us as we start of in the north of this fine continent, exploring the range of styles on offer and revisiting David’s favourite conductor Neeme Järvi yet again…
(1/10) On the theme of Music Plus One, join us we increment the number of players starting with Bach and ending with Haydn.
(6/6) Most of the gang are back – as well as some special guests! There was so much stuff to squeeze in, we were going to extend the show by an hour. But we realised that no-one would have wanted that. Watch out for the explosive ending…
(7/7) Christmas Special
(6/7) Series 1 Episode 6
(4/6) Four shows down and there’s only two of us left! Join me and my Captor as we try to rescue this sinking ship, all whilst completely forgetting the premise.
(5/7) Series 1 Episode 5
(3/6) Show 3? Already?? Join us with our temporary handler, Frankie Alice, along with Producer Potts and my Captor. Questionable content. Questionable quality.
(4/7) Series 1 Episode 4
(2/6) We’re onto the second week of the high-concept “thriller” series. Join us as we try to keep up with the confusing premise.
(3/7) Series 1 Episode 3
(1/6) A masterclass in developing accidental ideas, I’ve been kidnapped and thrown into a cave. My task? Hosting a radio show to appease my captor. Will he let me escape today? Unlikely – it’s the first of six episodes.
(2/7) Series 1 Episode 2
(1/7) Series 1 Episode 1
With everyone stuck inside, we were live from our homes, providing the sound to the YUSU (University of York Students’ Union) Fairs. I was asked/I volunteered readily to take part, so here I am making sure that no-one else would ever want to listen to me again…!
