The SRA are very excited to be announcing an opportunity for our member stations to be involved in a brand new show on BBC Radio 1! A new downloadable show, created and presented by different student radio stations from across the UK, will be launching next month. The weekly playlist based shows will feature an hour-long mix of themed music that will reflect students’ lives.

Radio 1’s Student Radio Playlist will take place Monday evenings from 9 to 10pm and will form part of the station’s schedule for 12 weeks from May 2016, being available for download via the BBC iPlayer Radio app.

Member stations of the UK Student Radio Association are invited to submit a proposed playlist, with the final twelve being chosen for Radio 1 airplay by a panel consisting of Radio 1’s Head of Programmes and Radio 1 Editors.

If you would like to be considered for one of the shows you can submit online at Please note only one submission per Student Radio Station will be allowed.

We require three playlist ideas with up to 16 suggested songs for each playlist. These will be considered as part of the selection process to determine which shows should make it to broadcast. The deadline for submission is 23:59 on Friday the 15th of April. Please note the first recording date could be as soon as Thursday the 28th of April 2016.
