Buying a membership gives you access to our Penryn Campus studio and everything you need to start hosting your own radio show. Shows can include Standard Music shows (our music, your commentary), Speciality Music shows (your music and commentary), Talk Shows, Podcasts, Radioplays/Dramas, News Shows, Sports Shows and more! If you're passionate about it, we'll help you get it on air!

  • Covering big events happening on campus and locally
  • Promoting new artists and discovering new music

Membership of Surf Radio comes with membership of the Student Radio Association (SRA), which means you can:

  • Enter the prestigious Student Radio Awards, a place that has started so many careers in radio!
  • Enter the Amplify Awards, a big night at the SRA Con where you can attend a meal with some of the big names in radio! Last year, the awards were presented by Katrina Ridley and Rob Howard (Heart)!
