Monday Evening Mix
An hour of guitar music, ranging from 1960s rock & roll, with artists like the Beatles and Bob Dylan, to contemporary alternative guitar bands, including the Strokes, Arctic Monkeys and Kasabian, and everything in between, a mix of classic artists, modern favourites and promising up-and-comers in the genre.
A continuation of the show I did last year where I would talk about with friends the best and most influential songs of a musical genre each week. I'd normally get a friend to bring in maybe 5 songs and then I would contribute my own selection too and we would discuss some background of each song and why they were so important to the development of that particular style or genre. The reason I started doing the show was because I've been exposed to lots of new artists and groups since starting my music degree a couple of years ago and I love sharing the music with friends and vice versa.
Vitale- hello babe, I'm a third-year cuths engineer who likes jazz rap and over-analyzing not that funny tweets xx
Fran- hello babe, I'm a third-year cuths sociology student who likes 90s hip hop and 70s easy listening, quizzes involving pointless celebrity trivia.
We want to do a chilled chat and music show with a different guest each week with the following outline: one segment introduction to our interviewee with a mini desert island discs sort of thing and the guest will pick a very specific theme each week, the next segment will be the 'Twit Bit' where we talk about the viral twitter news of the week and take the piss a bit, the next segment will be 'Misery Mums' which is an agony aunt segment where we reply to people but pretend to be mums from Hertfordshire, the final segment will be 'Forgotten Celebs- where are they now?' where we find out where people like Joe McElderry are now. ( all segments to have music of the week's theme throughout).
End of the Line
From Sister Rosetta to Big Mama Thornton, Nina Simone to Theolonious Monk, Danny Brown to Clipping., Tinariwen to Yellow Magic Orchestra, artists that push boundaries and experiment have crafted new styles that have reached far beyond their own personal fame and recognition. From classic acts to modern retellings, this show is a look through the history of the world’s music and the experimenters that made it what it is today. (Also hella jams and bops and all that good stuff!)
We are two 19 year old London girls looking to bring a bit of home to Durham. Joanna studies PPE and Maria studies Psychology, and we happen to be roommates (hence our title: Room 13). We have a shared interest in culture: films, music and humour. We wanted to bring people into the ridiculous conversations and stupid banter that we already have. Our music interests are pretty broad, ranging from Sinatra to Skepta, indie rock to jungle tunes. We wanted our show to have a mix of light-hearted chat, good music, good banter and our observations of life at uni.
Each week, Rob shares his favourite Indie music, including new tracks from up-and-coming artists. He'll take your song requests and bring you a brand new tune of the week in every show. With great music, guests and chat all guaranteed, it's the perfect way to start your Wednesday night.
The Oli and Oli Hour
Presenters - Olivia McCann, Classics, Third Year,
Oliver Scott, History, Third Year.
A chat show about Durham student life with a specific theme each week. For example, if the theme were to be 'nights out in Durham', we would relate stories of our favourite/most memorable nights out, give recommendations for nights out on each night of the week and post night out food! We would integrate this with varied music choices.
Topics we plan to cover include (but not limited to): signing a house in Durham, joining societies, how to 'enjoy' going to the library, how not to cook, adjusting to living with other people (especially roommates) in college.
I'm a Fresher studying Geography and I'm really interested in doing a chatty show talking about Durham student life, whilst also touching on issues such as feminism or politics within the university. I am also really keen to bring in some other people every so often in order to have discussions on not only topical issues but on some lighter ones too (e.g. do you agree with private schools, do you think that long distance uni relationships can work) as I definitely want to include a wide range of opinions in my show. Music-wise I will play a lot of hip-hop and rap but I also want to try and incorporate a wide range of genres, with guests also selecting their favourite songs in order to have a variety
ler n mer don't care

Funk in the streets, industrial techno in the sheets
This second season of Videotape has arrived! Presented by Luca Pittalis - a second-year Biologist and filmmaker - his weekly show every Saturday at 12 brings live sessions from Durham's hidden artists, interviews and discussions, along with music from alternative genres.
Expect: Radiohead, Ocean Alley and much more.
My name is Elizabeth, but Betty is fewer syllables so people tend to opt for that. I study Japanese, and have done plenty of travelling in the last year where I discovered all sorts of new music from different cultures. My taste also encompasses a whole lot of Western music from Indie to Rock to RnB to Classical. I love learning new things and on my show I would want to play a huge variety of music from all over, whilst getting some guests in to tell me some interesting stuff - whether that be about music or just about something they find interesting. At home I read the pub quiz and take total advantage of that time to play my own tunes...on the radio I'll pretty much do the same. But I've got such a wide music taste that I guarantee what is heard will have something for everyone: even if it's a Russian pop song you've never heard.
My name is Amelie Maurice-Jones and I am a first year undergraduate studying English Literature. I enjoy painting, singing, and going for long walks. My show would consider standard situations such as university experiences and pop culture through a unique lens, and would adopt a philosophical and creative outlook concerning the nature of everyday life. In the show I would explore music from a range of niche genres including modern electronic and jazz scenes and I would analyse and explore how the power of music is formed, and how one might use music as a tool in order to shape their life.
Two Bins No Fridge
Join hosts Toby, Callum and Safa, proud residents of the only student house in Durham to boast 2 wheelie bins but no fridge, as they attempt to navigate whatever segments they've thought up during their last late night fever dream.
Karishma is a third-year English student for whom Hip Hop and R&B have been sources of comfort, empowerment and creative inspiration from a young age. Whilst she enjoys the music of mainstream artists such as Chance the Rapper, Kendrick Lamar and Jorja Smith, she is often drawn more to ‘alternative’ artists within the genre, such as Injury Reserve, SiR, Noname and Little Simz who push boundaries both in terms of their production and lyrics. In addition to listening to music no matter what she is doing, she is always actively engaged in discussions of its critical analysis online and with the people around her.
Artemis is a third-year History student whose interest in music has come a long way considering she started off as an annoying tumblr girl who thought they were ‘born in the wrong decade’. She loves Hip Hop and R&B for their innovative sounds and because its music you can dance to! Her taste spans from A Tribe Called Quest to D’Angelo, to SZA and Junglepussy. Known
My name is Harry and I am a first year Classics student. In my spare time, I am a keen sports fan, especially of Football, Rugby and American Football, as well as having a widespread interest in music, including music which is in the charts, music which is up and coming, such as grime and also classics. In this slot, on a weekend evening, I aim to reflect on the weekend's events, primarily in sport but also on other major issues, whether they be political or in the entertainment industry, however, the focus will be on the music, an infusion of dance music and cheesy classics to prepare you for a Sunday night out!
Movies with Maire
I did a show similar to this last year, and would love to continue the theme. I'd love to play soundtracks from movies, songs inspired by movies and talk about actors, directors and movies new and old, perhaps giving reviews of movies that have recently come out. I could also have guests who give a kind of desert island disks list of movies and play songs from their favourite movies. Different themes of movies of tv shows would feature every week to make the show more coherent, and from time to time focusing on a particular time period of film.
