Fancy being the next Greg James? Perhaps you just want to learn how to produce great content? Or maybe even just want to meet some like-minded creative people? Then Radio Sonar is THE place for you!

Last year in terms of amount of members, we made up 1/6th of the societies at the university with over 100 members and we’ve only grown bigger and better since. With brand new equipment, a newly decorated studio and stronger links with the SRA/Voice FM than ever before, the 2019-20 Academic Year is a hugely exciting year to be part of Radio Sonar. If you are interested in joining, make sure to join our Members group on Facebook ‘Radio Sonar 2019-2020’ for all necessary information for the year.

Having recently been announced to take over from Grimmy as the presenter of Radio 1’s Breakfast show, Greg James is the poster boy for any aspiring student radio presenter after he was discovered through the Student Radio Association (SRA). However, student radio doesn’t have to be all about presenting. We’re also looking for producers (content creators), tech assistants (we have a live lounge!), journalists (for our news team and/or to conduct artist interviews), as well as people to co-manage social media and social events. Whatever you can think of, we can accommodate. 

We have ties with local community station Voice FM, who offer 5 late-night slots per week (8-10pm) that YOU could end up presenting. As well as this, our links with the SRA and Renegade Music help to provide Radio Sonar with the latest music from the most exciting up-and-coming artists from across all genres. Last year alone we grabbed interviews with The Wombats, Rae Morris and Will Varley, just to name a few. These opportunities really could be yours if you join Radio Sonar!
