Every year the SRA teams up with Folded Wing and the British Council to produce a student radio version of The Selector, a specialist music show which broadcasts all over the world. We asked students from around the UK to send in their applications – and these were whittled down to six finalists who will now all host the show on their student stations, after presenter training at Folded Wing’s studios down in London.
Congratulations to the following of our members:
Leah Davis – Insanity Radio – Royal Holloway
Cassidy Baillie – BLAST – University Of West London
Benedict Jones – Shock Radio – University Of Salford
Netanya Pilikian – Leeds Student Radio – University of Leeds
Jen Thomas – Fly FM – Nottingham Trent
Ollie Brookes – URB – University Of Bath
Once the year is out, Folded Wing will choose one overall winner to spend 10 days at The Selector’s sister radio station, Ibero 90.9 in Mexico City! Jack Saunders and Ross Buchanan are previous winners of this accolade, and have gone on to present on Radio X. This week Jack also interviewed Green Day for MTV. Lucky thing.
