RAW 1251AM is your national award-winning and acclaimed Student Radio Station

As one of the most active and respected societies at the university, there is always something going on that you can take part in! 

These are just some of the ways to get involved:

  • We give you the chance to host your own show, regardless of your prior experience or ability: you can play the music you love, share an interest in sport, music, the arts or anything that takes your fancy!
  • Report on the news and join current affairs discussions
  • Get involved with special documentaries or with interviews with new artists!

If being on air isn’t your thing, then we have a whole range of off-air teams:

  • Innovate with our tech team,
  • Try your hand at creating jingles, adverts and videos with our production team
  • Get involved with creating eye-catching designs with the publicity team!

Most of all, have a laugh and try something new with your friends. You can always listen to the station, if hosting a show doesn’t interest you. You could be the next Stephen Merchant or Simon Mayo, so what are you waiting for? Join today!

During the last year RAW has adapted to the pandemic and has continued producing content online. We have increased our presence through social media, podcasts and livestreams, and this has really led to a whole new way of broadcasting for the station, as well as remaining a presence in the university. This of course also leads to a variety of opportunities for all our members, so check out our socials to see what we have been up to so far, and to see what you could get involved in!

Quote from Stephen Merchant:

“RAW is a great place to try and figure out your voice and your style because no one is scrutinising; so you can try different things and experiment and no one is judging.”

Quote from Simon Mayo:

“I had a great time when I was here. There was that feeling, here is a radio station with a bunch of records, go in and enjoy yourself.”
