7pm-8pm –  Well here we are nearly at the end of January 2019 already!

Don’t let the cold seep to your bones, but do chill out by staying tuned in to Two Rivers Radio and listening to Breaking York.

We have quickly become know for playing cool tunes that others don’t, getting artists airplay who are generally under appreciated elsewhere and sharing little insights about who did what,with whom and when – It’s better than any soap opera – coz it’s real – and they don’t have cool music like us.

So who’s on the show?
Well as we get ready to chat with Colin Cutler in two weeks time we’ll have a track from him.
We have some Van Der Neer, Jade Helliwell, a new ‘Out of town’ feature where we play a track from a band/ artist wanting to gig in York, more from Sorry Kisses, James Herford and others besides.

Also we’ll be sharing information about our charity fund raisers, the next Breaking York mini tour and any general chit chat.

Why don’t you message us by email tworiversradio@gmail.com Tweet to #Breakingyork or text 07967518287 and tell which festivals ( outside the biggies) you fancy this year.

8pm – 9pm – A bit of a hubbub  with Helena Wiggins is a new show on Two Rivers Radio.

A social, historical and moderately amusing canter around the surreal, quirky and sometimes ridiculous side of York, with some eclectic music mashed in for good measure.
This month we look at: Dogs, the despicable and a despairing York icon.
9pm-10pm – Tune in to Baguette et Croissant with Maxime!

Has been writing short, factual articles for about 12 years mostly for reading aloud at open mic events and has two collections of writing published locally.

John will be reading excerpts from some of his stories and engaging in topical chat.

And that’s all folks!

5pm – 6pm – Ask York 4: City Centre Regeneration & Urban Renewal

With Panel:

  • Pete Kilbane – Chair
  • Imelda Havers – Independent Regeneration Consultant
  • David Dunning – News Editor at Minster FM
  • Cllr. Ashley Mason – Lib Dem
  • Phil Pinder – York Retail Forum

Ask York 4 focused on City Centre Regeneration and there were some fantastic questions and great debate form both the live studio audience and the panel.

Should there be a cross party city summit to tackle #York’s issues on #regeneration and behaviour?  Is there a lack of leadership in @CityofYork on this?

Discussion moves on pedestrianisation of #York – do you think having more #footstreets would be a good thing for the future of the city?

Would a tourist tax help the regeneration of #York asks @GSwinburn? @imeldahavers says as a resident she has no problem with #tourists but stag & hen parties are a strain on resources and we should focus on that.

Would a tourist tax make #York a pariah city or a leader? Views from the floor at #AskYork are largely in favour; lively debate now happening about stag and hen parties!

Phil Pinder of @YorkRetailForum and the other panelists agree that business rates are archaic and should be abolished. @imeldahavers says they are the bane of retailers’ lives.

What can we do with the large empty shops and could they house indoor markets? Phil Pinder of @YorkRetailForum is in favour; @daviddunninguk says demographics have changed; maybe city-centre shops have had their day & focus should be on food/drink/entertainment?

Future of the old BHS centre revealed!

Final question for #AskYork is about #recycling: questioner asks why #York doesn’t have segregated bins in the city centre – the state of #York is an embarrassment!

Great questions and informative answers. This is a not to be missed show for anybody that cares about the future of our city!

6pm – 7pm –   Information Takeaway: Juliet’s  first show of 2019 was so good that we want to play it again – in case anyone missed it! This episode tackles the issues around home and school education – are there valid reasons for taking your child out of school? Can schools support home schooling more proactively to blend home and school education? Do we need a shake up in our education system and different ways of thinking in the modern age? We are joined by Izzy Renkin-Holliway who is training to be a teacher and was home-schooled herself and get the point of view of parents plus our usual great music!

7pm-8pm  – This week Breaking York takes on a new time and a new shape. We’ll have our usual mix of original music from local bands/artists around Yorkshire with information about where these great recordings happened, plus a couple of new twists. In the first show  of 2019 we’ll be playing a song from Colin Cutler – and we’ll be featuring Colin’s work for two shows before having a live special in the studio and chatting about his songs and where people can hear him play etc. For other twists and turns you’ll have to tune in.

8pm-9pm –   Soul Funktion returns in a new slot for the first show of the New Year. With Dave Johnson having just returned from his annual pilgrimage at the ‘Luxury Soul Weekend’ in Blackpool he will be paying homage to the event playing a collection of modern soul music from 2000 up to the present day. Therefore sit back and enjoy some classic modern soul gems

9pm-10pm – Beats’n’Pieces with Jonah Hebron. This week it’s the best of British, north to south, grime to boombap – think Dirty Dike, think slowthai, think Little Simz

10pm – 11pm –  “Always Something There To Remind Me… The Look of Burt Bacharach!!”… One (way, way too short) hour dedicated to The MORpoptastic King of MORpop on The Late Mr Judge To You!
