Matt Seymour

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.

More Raw

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.

"I was born in the designer outlet… Gucci I reckon"

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.
