About Us

Shock Radio is the University of Salford's Student's Union's very own radio station, broadcasting each semester to over 20,000 students across Salford. Whether you've been involved in radio before, or you're just starting out, we've got on-air and off-air opportunities to suit everyone, including; producing, podcasting and technical operations, as well as a variety of roles within the sports, news, visuals and music teams. Whilst most of our members are media students, you don't have to study radio to get involved in Shock and our past members have come from courses such as Maths, Sports, Drama and Nursing.

We are based at our state of the art studios in University House, right next to Atmosphere Bar and Cafe. At Shock, we rearrange the schedule and re-open applications for new shows each semester to allow as many people as possible to get involved with Shock.

We're not just a radio station, we are one of the biggest societies and part of the UK's Student Radio Association. We have many links to the industry and have been visited by rising stars in music, as well as industry radio presenters. We attend many student radio events such as the SRA Awards and Conference, where our members also have the chance to win awards. We also put on events at your SU, as well as our very own Shock Radio Awards at the end of the year.
