Hello and welcome back to our SRA Playlist Meeting. We’ve had a bit of time off for the Easter Break which means things have been a bit quieter than usual, but we’ve still had 17 stations fill out our latest survey this time around. You can expect our next one in Mid-May to be JAM PACKED full of new music and stations being involved.
Below you’ll find the records we’ve polled around our stations and alongside them details on how many are playing the songs and some quotes about them.
You can also find our latest SRA Chart below too.

We also have exciting news that we are now partnered with SubTV to bring the SRA Playlist to a bigger audience. The playlist will now be broadcast around Universities on Wednesdays 5pm!
