BLOG ENTRIES

We have some amazing core shows that you can be part of at Leeds Student Radio. All the forms to apply to be a part of one of these shows are now open. You can find the links below:

Application deadline is Friday 3rd October at 12pm (midday).

With the intro meeting now done the show proposal form is now live! You have until Midday on Friday 3rd October to submit your proposal.

Our 3 top tips for a successful proposal:

  1. Be original – We want new, creative and exciting ideas that will compliment the diversity of our schedule. As always, the word ‘Banter’ is forbidden, as is the word ‘Lols’ (even with a ‘z’).
  2. Take your time – The best show proposals are well planned and thought out. Don’t leave it until the last minute.
  3. Think about your audience – Try and appeal your proposal to a student audience and think what their interests or tastes might be.

You can find the link to the proposal form here. Don’t forget we also have several ‘core’ shows which must be applied for separately, relevant contact details are on the form.

So you want to join one of the biggest and best student radio stations in the country?  You’ve come to the right place!  Students from all across Leeds are welcome to join in.  We’re looking for presenters, producers, sound engineers, gig reviewers, news reporters, and sports commentators.  If this sounds like something you might be interested, head to our welcome meeting on Thursday 25th September in Stylus, Leeds University Union, at 3pm.  We can’t wait to meet you!

Sir Alan Langlands is the Vice-Chancellor of The University of Leeds.  This basically means that he is the Chief Executive of our university.  As a student, you might not have the opportunity to meet him until your graduation ceremony, and even then the handshake will be swift and no-nonsense.  Which is why the two biggest media societies at Leeds University Union decided to take this opportunity to ask questions on your behalf, and find out exactly what the V.C. thinks about graduate employment, funding cuts, and Freshers’ Week.

Our music team have been to some pretty cool festivals over the summer, and met a whole host of different artists.  This week our featured artist is Newton Faulkner (think folk classics like Dream Catch Me).  Our new Head of Music, Emma Rice caught up with him at Cambridge Folk Festival to talk about skipping, a trip to Japan, and their mutual friend Sam Brookes.

 

This is Newton Faulkner.

Here at Leeds Student Radio, we’re pretty proud of all the exciting things our members get up to. So proud, in fact, that we just want to tell everyone.  It’s not that we want to take credit for their hard work and enthusiasm, but we like to think that LSR played a tiny little role in their success stories!

leeds fest

Arguably one of the best festivals to grace the UK’s summer every year, attracting some hundred thousand people to each event, Leeds Festival is almost upon us. Whether you wear skinny jeans and too much eye liner or have an obsession with triangles, Reading and Leeds is guaranteed to suite your musical tastes and to provide everything in between. It’s lucky that we trotted along to the local press day to meet the festival organisers and some local bands isn’t it? You lucky sods.

Take Harry, for example.  Since joining LSR in 2012, Harry has presented on of our flagship music shows RPM Presents: Indie and Alternative, co-produced the ridiculously hilarious Bleakhousewoodhouse, and even taken on the massive committee role of being a Head of Music.  He has also been known to present Beech Coma, a late night specialist music show slash blog slash record label.  Now Harry is working in London, and has been picked up by the music oracle CMJ.  See what he has to say in his first ever interview…

For a final look back at the year gone by we’ve put together a reel of the station’s best bits. There were, quite frankly, too many to choose from but we included such gems as our Lead LUU prank on Fiona Metcalfe, highlights of The Transmission, The Beat’s infamous ‘Catch A Fresher’ feature and clips from The LGBT Show, To The Point and Alumni Radio.
