The URF x
For the first time ever URF will be hosting the Student Radio Association Chart Show! Next Sunday (25th November) from 3-5pm we will be presenting the show, which will be broadcast on almost every student radio station in the country. For the first hour we will be counting down the the top 10 unsigned tracks students are listening to, and the second hour will cover the top 10 biggest hits playing on student nights across the country. We will be streaming the show every Sunday on URF from different student radio stations, meaning you can hear a taste of what other Universities have to offer!
To get in contact go to:
You can check out www.studentradiochart.com for more information.
Elections are compulsory for all members to attend as, with the Exec being so crucial to URF, we have to ensure that those elected are those you want to run the station. There are 8 positions on the team:
Chair - firstname.lastname@example.org
Station Manager- station.manager@urfonline.
Secretary - email@example.com
Music - firstname.lastname@example.org
News - email@example.com
PR and Events -firstname.lastname@example.org
Tech - email@example.com
Production - firstname.lastname@example.org
Positions on the Exec last for one year. Anybody is welcome to go for a role – you don’t have to have been part of URF for a long time, or be part of the team you would like to run for, all we need is enthusiasm. Candidates will be asked to make a 2-minute speech about why you think you would be good at the role, and what ideas you have for it. Being on the Exec is a big commitment but it’s fun, rewarding and great work experience that looks fantastic on the CV. Remember that you can run for more than one position on the night, but you will only be able to take over one position.
Please email any of us if you would like to know more about the roles, and drop by to any of the team meetings, which have the times here:http://www.urfonline.com/
