The People of Yorkshire

Here in God's Own Country we're immensely proud of our culture. The food, the countryside, the architecture, the art: just a few of the reasons living in Yorkshire is blooming great. Of course none of this would be possible without the people. 

Here at Wireless we want to pay tribute to a few of the more eccentric inhabitants of our fair land.

Type: Proper bloke
Occupation: Bricks
Hobbies & interests: Sports, Pubs, Action Films

The Proper bloke is a staple of any respectable drinking establishment. He's been there all day watching the Rugby and he's barely tipsy. A real man can handle his drink with dignity. Some say his blood is made of Guinness and he eats a whole chicken every day. All we know is we wouldn't want to get into a fight with him.

Type: Lost Southerner
Occupation: Student
Hobbies & Interests: Alternative American Pop-Rock and Bread Makers

Seemingly unaware that they've lived in the north for many months now, the lost southerner delights in telling their flatmates how utterly awful it is to be living in Sheffield. It was far better in Exeter, they insist, they had horses and nobody had even heard of a council estate. Despite this they'll stay here forever, never considering how much of a moron they sound.

Type: The Blind Optimistic
Occupation: Unemployed
Hobbies & Interests: Socialising, X-Box, Saying “it'll be reet”

Living at his mum's house at 23, he's handed out 100 CVs in the last week and he's sure something will turn up soon. That bloke at Computer Exchange did look quite interested, after all. He's got a 2:2 in Media Studies and he's worried employers might think he's overqualified. His mate is coming round later and he'll probably bring weed, that'll be nice.

Type: The Party Monster
Occupation: Never you mind
Hobbies & Interests: Drugs

Found at every house party you've ever been to, The Party Monster has been around for generations and doesn't intend to stop any time soon. He's just come back from a festival and seems friendly enough, but try saying one cross word about the first Stone Roses album and see what happens. They've never gotten sick of hearing Wonderwall, not once, that practically makes them immortal.
