Old York, Old York. So York they named it York. Amy Gledhill (BBC Radio 2, The Delightful Sausage, A Lovely Time) joins the Loreboys to delve into the story of York’s original party animal: Brother Jucundus. He was a monk-about-town who took a little more of the holy spirit than was good for him. “Up, up, up we go!”
This episode features a cut-out-and-keep joke that listeners can say whenever they are in York. (Unless James Shakeshaft is also in York, in which case he will be saying it.)
The Loremen are Alasdair Beckett-King & James Shakeshaft. Featuring Guest Loreperson, Amy Gledhill.
