Who We Are
CSRfm is your Community & Student Radio station based in Canterbury, England, catering to the district of Canterbury and other local areas. Having commenced broadcasting in January 2007, the station holds a Community FM licence as awarded by Ofcom with a purpose to serve the local community of those in education, or aspiring to be in education, between the ages of 15 and 24.
The station broadcasts 24/7, 365 days a year to the local community of Canterbury on 97.4fm and online worldwide via this website and various supporting apps including iTunes and TuneIn. Shows are broadcast from our two studios, one situated in the Media Centre at the University of Kent, and one situated on the Canterbury Christ Church University North Holmes Road campus. Furthermore, we are proud to be able to claim ourselves as the first student-led community radio station in the country to be awarded a Community FM license, now 1 of 8.
The station is predominantly volunteer-run, made up of both students and members of the local community. Anyone aged 18 or over can join the station and benefit from the many opportunities we offer to our members including gaining experience in; presenting or producing a radio show, creating engaging and informative news, planning and producing events on one of the University campuses or in the local area, maintaining our vast amounts of equipment and sophisticated I.T. systems, conducting interviews with local artists, researching music, developing marketing campaigns and much more.
