LCR Home

LCR LogoOne of the oldest student radio stations in the UK, LCR started as pirate radio broadcasts from a suitcase in the Hazelrigg hall of residence, during Rag Week 1970. Known as Radio Mule – a Small Station with a Kick – it had become so popular after three years that the students voted to turn it into a legitimate station. URL (University Radio Loughborough) was born, and went live on-air in 1973, the name was changed to LCR in 1983.

It was one of the first UK student stations to move to the new free radiating low-powered AM licence in October 1999, with webcasting starting later the same academic year. In 2007 the AM transmitter was severely damaged in a fire, and LCR have continued to be a solely internet station since. Famous voices that once used to be a regular feature on the LCR airwaves include Ore Oduba and Jules Purnell.
