Jon Baker-Hood, aka UpsideYourMind, is very busy keeping the good people of York dancing till the early hours at bars and events across the city - he's also a resident DJ at the ever-popular Sotano Bar in Little Stonegate.

Jon curates a weekly programme alongside Harkirit Boparai from the Ouroboros event promotion team. Their joint effort is called All Forms and it draws in music with a jazzy and contemporary edge from far and near.

Jon also archives the shows on his MixCloud page - why not go get a flavour now before diving into listening live?

Every Tuesday 9 to 11pm.        (Back to Top)

Kinshasa Junction

Miles Nixon has been broadcasting at a variety of levels for some years. His easy-going style and attraction to music of all types from all cultures makes his weekly broadcast - Kinshasa Junction - a very enjoyable listen late into a Monday evening. Miles will also be appearing alongside other ¡TROPICA! DJs at our various events throughout the year.

Following-on from either Lu or Dave, Miles takes the listener from 10pm through till midnight and the rules are: There Are No Rules!                                    (Back to Top)

Lu Mason - the aptly-named Ms Fabulous - is a familiar face on the local DJ scene, in demand as she is at a number of regular club nights as diverse in style as Irie Vibes and Mashed

Lu also DJs with Reaction Crew at Eden and Northern Green Gathering Festivals

Lu's Lucky Dip is a fortnightly show on Jorvik Radio, running alternate Mondays from 8 to 10pm.

A dedicated lifelong crate-digger, Lu plays a personal and very eclectic mix of soulful sounds, both remote and familiar, creating a truly Fabulous package of global grooves.

    Lu's Lucky Dip

DrummieDave - Dave Atkin - presents his show opposite Lu's - on Mondays from 8 to 10pm. Compass Points operates an open borders policy musically - no stone unturned - if it's good it's in, with the accent on non-mainstream material.

Dave uses a knowledge garnered over decades working in the specialist music industry to create an engaging and interesting musical mix from both archive and contemporary recordings.

There's a MixCloud page specifically for archiving Compass Points broadcasts - if you prefer your radio free of news and adverts you can listen again there. (Back to Top)
