Xpression FM 40th Anniversary Show
March 04, 2016 05:52 AM PST
To mark the 40th anniversary of University Radio Exeter / Xpression FM (https://www.facebook.com/groups/432516383626199/) some radio alumni were given the chance to do some takeover shows. Tom Davies and I were once again re-united on the airwaves to do a show, featuring some familiar items from back in 2001. The 2nd half of the show has Tom driving.
The bloopers from the weekend, which i feel give my show an unfair allocation are posted here: https://soundcloud.com/kat-holbrook-1/bloopers-mixdown

"Some guy just came running at us with a bag on his head"
This is the first 45 minutes less music from the first Harris Masterplan / Challenge Anarchists show of URE FM99.
Harry Harris directs from the studio, aided by Alex Gener. The Anarchists are out in the field: James, Mark, Bob, y Marcus y Stu.
This task is to find a fish, and bring it back alive to the studio. It features the impressive appearance of "Mr Mange-Tout" - Alex Goldie, the nemesis of the anarchists. He was subsequently questioned by the police, as to why he was skulking in the bushes.
We did bring a fish to the studio in the end, borrowing it, tank and all from a friend of mine.
Subsequent shows were:

This is probably the last show that I did on Xpression, in 2002 before I left Exeter and indeed, the country. I can't for the life of me remember doing it though.
Tony Devy is at home studying for some exams, so I join the No Show, Tom Davies' radio show. For the second hour I take over the desk, and we do some of our old items including, Devon Tourist Attractions and the Gallery.
All of them songs that get in the way of us jibbering have been removed.Mark Seddon XpressionFM 30th Anniversary show - 26Feb2006

URE Reunion Broadcast - 30th Birthday of the radio station
This is a recording of my show from XpressionFM's 30th Anniversary broadcast on 26Feb2006
Doing the show was cool, though it took a little while to get warmed up and get used to the new-fangled computer jingles then before I knew it, the hour was up. Tom Davies spent most of the show as my virtual sidekick down the phone, revisiting items such as "Smack my Pitch Up" advice from Rabbi Williams, and Stressbusting. I wanted to fit in more, but there's only so much you can do in an hour.
URE Reunion's highlight was a meal on evening of Sat 25th February then a takeover of the shows by the old DJs the next day. A fun night was had at the pretty posh at a function room in the Thistle Hotel (opposite Exeter Central Station). A pretty good turnout and was good to see everyone again (James McNally, Will Garner, Danny Lawrence, Tommy Dyer, Harry Harris, Strange Martin, Oli Adams, James Beatie, Nick & Lou, Russ Blandamer, Chris Homewood etc), it hardly seemed like any time had passed really.
There was a posh sit down meal followed by a couple of speeches (mostly Harris praising Frog who basically is the station) and a photo slideshow of " 30 years of memories". The memories seemed to be of either the current crop of DJs or lifted from my website (so slightly skewed in the direction of me and Tom Davies). Very bizarre seeing my photos blown up onto a huge projection screen though.
The night continued with much drinking and dancing, and I ended up sleeping on the floor at Russ' place. The next day my knees ached from my over enthusiastic Cossack style dancing, and was a little sleep deprived thanks to Will's snoring.

This podcast site collects a few shows from the time I was at Student Radio.
In 1996 I joined University Radio Exeter, shortly after starting at Exeter Uni. I was an active member through my degree and MA. After leaving Uni I continued to Live in Exeter and did a weekend radio show for a couple of years. I was voted in as head of music, creating playlists and interviewing visiting bands. My greatest achievements included having backstage drinks with Cerys of Catatonia, kicking Tommy from Space during an interview and recording live sessions with many top flight bands. I did many shows during my time at URE (and Xpression as it was renamed), took part in lots of different events, and worked with lots of people. This podcast site aims to collect a few shows from that time. Find out more here: http://www.geocities.com/seddonism/contentsradio.html
