Your Harrogate have launched a new podcast series in association with Harrogate BID, pairing music with their best bits from life in Harrogate.

Each week, presenter Nick Hancock will be joined by a well-known face from a local business.

They’ll be tasked with picking six songs whilst sharing stories from living in Harrogate.

The series will be aired on Your Harrogate every Sunday between 12pm and 1pm – starting Sunday 2nd April.

Nick Hancock said “Get ready to hear people you know as you’ve never heard them before!

“This unique show gives us a chance to delve into the lives and the music collections of some of Harrogate’s most prominent people. I hope listeners will enjoy the songs and the chats every Sunday.

“We thoroughly enjoy our partnership with Harrogate BID. They do so much to promote all that is good and positive in Harrogate…so we have a lot in common!”

Matthew Chapman, Harrogate BID Manager, said “People very much make places and this is very true in a great place like Harrogate!

“We at Harrogate BID are excited to yet again partner with Your Harrogate on this new and exciting podcast ‘Songs on the Stray’.

“We hope listeners will hear a fresh and personable side to key business people in the town, from your local butcher to that familiar solicitor. We know this will show a different side to people that make the town tick.”

The first episode will feature Simon Morris from Raworths.
