    Why are university radio stations in the UK so moist?
    The US have way better "college radio" with actual FM broadcast licences. They are famous for breaking massive artists all the time.

    I joined my uni's "radio society", (mixcloud.com/questradio) and frankly I am surprised with how little effort they put into marketing, or station-backed producing of people's shows.

    Basically during freshers' week they just sort of find in a couple dozen students who are interested in having a show, and with in my opinion, not enough training, throw them into the studio, where everyone is left to fend for themselves.

    My comedy talk show about student life has been listened to two or three more times than the rest of the station combined, and I am making an effort to improve it every week. If you have some feedback I would appreciate it. mixcloud.com/questradio/the-arturo-mendoza-show-week-3 The QM Confessions bit might be a little bit too local to my university, it refers to this. Drapers is our student bar. Hail Mary is one of its nights.

    Are there any UK uni radio stations that actually have thousands of listeners?

    Do you listen to your university's radio station?

    Are you even aware of the name of your university's radio station? Check. There probably is one.
