Hey, we’re CSR!
CSR stands for Community and Student Radio. We’re a student radio station based in Canterbury. We are primarily funded by the University of Kent & Kent Union, and we are run by volunteers within CSR’s Committee & our student union partner.
With a fully operational broadcast studio located at the Student Media Centre on the University of Kent campus, we broadcast 24/7, 365 days a year with a wide range of programmes and shows to suit everyone. You may know us as Radio Rutherford, maybe C4 Radio or even UKCR 1350AM. Founded in 1967, CSR is the oldest student radio station in the UK, previously broadcasting on 1350 AM, 999 AM, and 97.4 FM. We’re still broadcasting loud & proud today. You can hear us on online & around campus, with highlights from your favourite shows available on-demand.
CSR has members from all paths of life, meaning our on-air output is super varied. On Thursday nights, we travel through a journey of Rock & Indie, whereas on Sunday we tend to chill out a bit and play stuff to help you revise. Long story short we play what the students of Canterbury want to hear, and we’re quite good at it. We also love to attend events, like Canterbury’s Food and Drink festival & enjoy promoting local bands with our stage at CSR Live.
Our broadcast equipment and systems have been updated to allow the very best production of radio around the University of Kent, and nationally online. Every member is fully trained on the equipment, and will receive the support they need from committee members and Kent Union staff.
