Fire and the Hud
Radio Hud is an on-campus radio station situated in the centre of the University’s Student Union which is an ideal location to get your show heard! With a management team that is completely student-led, Radio Hud is one of the biggest societies on campus. At the end of every academic year, members of the committee elect who they think is suitable for the roles ready for the students to undertake their new positions for the next year.
There are always new opportunities up for grabs and the potential for you to become the next station manager! Previous shows include Hud Voice, A Classical Journey, Radio Hud Rock Show and Ruubez Off Camera. Whatever your passion is, we’re sure it would sound great on air! With a huge scope for you to listen, learn, grow and teach, there are no limits to your creativity as you are your own boss (when it comes to having your own show).
So, if any of this sounds interesting to you, get in touch! We’d love to hear from you! Below are details of your current Radio Hud management team.
I joined RadioHud in first year on a whim to improve my overall quality of life at university- and now I’m running it as Station Manager! As the de-facto leader lf the society, it is up to me to ensure that the society is well run and productive, as well as lending a helping hand to the 5 Heads of the Society when they need it. A Jack of All Trades, I guess! Alongside my management role, I am also the co-host and co-producer of the Radio Hud Rock Show, winner of the Radio Hud Best Show Award for 2017/18.
Despite the fact that I study Construction Project Management, I like to be heavily involved in the music scene. I am a headbanging metalhead and love my music to be fast, heavy, and melodic! I also play bass and do some screaming as part of Resist in Retrospect alongside my co-hosts Tom and Connor. We are currently writing our debut album, so keep your eyes peeled for its release!
Away from music, I am a big sports fan, supporting Glasgow Rangers and Norwich City for football, the New Orleans Saints for the NFL, the New Orleans Pelicans for the NBA, and the Calgary Flames for the NHL. I’m also a big pro-wrestling fan (It’s still real to me dammit!) and enjoy doing D.I.Y. projects with woodwork and textiles.
Deputy Station Manager and Head of Music & Production
This year I aim to modernise our broadcasting setup, moving away from Jazler and Flash for web streaming (and fingers crossed adding support for listening to RadioHud on mobile devices). I will also be adding good music to the autoplay list so the SU will never be too quiet.
Head of Journalism & Marketing
Last year when I joined Radio Hud with Greg, I had no idea how much I would actually come to enjoy it! Each week we were picking new songs and from doing that I’ve learnt about loads of new artists and the stories behind their music. I’m not a musician or anything – honestly I’m probably tone deaf – but I seriously appreciate the people who have the talent to make music, playing it out to a bunch of students is the least I can do.
I’m currently in my third year studying Broadcast Journalism and I’ll be working closely with all members of the committee! I’m also going to be providing logos & marketing material’s for shows if they need it and am hoping to be very active across social media! If you listen to mine and Greg’s show you’ll be sure to hear a bit of everything, from Lana Del Rey to King Gizzard and the Lizard Wizard so make sure to tune in.
Head of Programming
Hi there! I’m Faye, Head of Programming. I put together the schedule for the radio station. I study Broadcast Journalism and I’m just about to start my final year. I sing soprano in my church choir and I also love to perform in musicals.
I really want to open up the schedule and make it as jam packed as possible. If you have an idea for a show, please let me know and I can help you become part of the Radio Hud team!
