Bestselling band star on student-run music programme

Quays News, our student-run news platform, hosted chart-topping band The Hoosiers on Thursday (19 November).

Most well-known for their hit single ‘Goodbye Mr A’, The Hoosiers appeared on Quays News as part of Quays Sessions – a new weekly show broadcasting music performances from local and international acts.

On the show, they performed Up to No Good from their fourth album The Secret Service. Salford based band Mr Heart joined the Hoosiers and performed two tracks from their 2015 EP Vessel. Presenter Francesca Scotrick Boyd, a first-year BA TV & Radio student, interviewed both acts on the show. 

Quays Sessions is a programme presented and produced by students across the entire University. Mike Halligan, a third-year BA TV & Radio student, is the Student and Series producer of the new series.

Mike said: “It’s been great to bring together so many students from across different courses and create a programme which we’re all so passionate about. The skills brought forward by each member of the team has made a cracking pilot episode.

"With the support of the technical staff at Media City and access to the industry standard studio facilities, I’m sure we’ll learn a lot by making Quays SESSIONS and develop it into a quality production.”
