Matt Seymour brings you music and news from the local music scene in More Raw every Saturday evening between 6pm and 7pm. He's well qualified for the job as he's a member of York band Five Small Ponies.
Listen to Matt presenting 'More Raw' between 6pm and 7pm on Saturday evenings.
Listen to BBC Radio York: 103.7 FM, 95.5 FM and 104.3 FM plus 666 & 1260 MW and online.
Star sign: Aquarius.
Born 'n' Bred: York, I was born in the designer outlet… Gucci I reckon.
First memory: Getting a train set for my birthday. Setting me on the road to those slightly geeky tendencies.
First record bought: I think it was Hole In My Shoe by Neil from the Young Ones. Hmmm. I like to think my musical taste has matured somewhat since then, but it probably hasn’t.
First job: Stacking shelves in the local shop. Glamorous.
Little known fact about yourself: Oh I hate this question… Um… I’ve got no big toenails… There you go. The result of a freak accident with an industrial spoon.
Favourite food and drink: How could I possibly pin it down to just one thing! Ok… um…. Pizza and red wine. Very sophisticated.
Favourite place in the world: The Loch Lomond area of Scotland.
Favourite place in North Yorkshire: Whitby.
Any pet hates: Inconsiderate people who always seem to put themselves first. Fortunately I don’t come across many people who fall into this category.
What would your desert island luxury be: My laptop and a broadband internet connection. That way I can read and listen to pretty much anything.
Most embarrassing radio moment: Probably my first time presenting solo. I completely dried up at one point and couldn’t manage to read the weather. Hugely embarrassing but hardly the end of the world.
Best radio moment: The very first More Raw programme. To bring a show from an idea to a finished product is really rewarding.
Who would be your dream co-presenter: Chris Martin from Coldplay, no I reckon he’d be a bit miserable. Maybe someone a bit more off the wall like Wayne from the Flaming Lips.
If you weren’t a broadcaster what would you be: Most definitely a techy of some sort, maybe a live sound engineer.
