Loughborough Campus Radio is Loughborough’s official student radio station, broadcasting to each and every student here at Loughborough. Broadcast from our studios to make your voice heard with LCR, from music shows to live sport and news coverage, we’ve got it all!

We’ve been the home of a variety of student ideas and thoughts since 1973, from political debate to live sport to music shows – all broadcast from our two fantastic studios in the Students’ Union. To get involved, come and visit us in our office upstairs in the Students' Union, or join our volunteers group!


History of LCR

One 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, streaming to radio.lsu.co.uk. Famous voices that once used to be a regular feature on the LCR airwaves include Ore Oduba, Ben Croucher and Jules Purnell.

LCR is entirely run by a student committee, led by Station Manager Lucie Lewis! She's helped out by a team of Producers, Technicians and Content Creators. The committee is appointed each year around Easter - to find out more about the LCR Committee and how to get involved click here.

Training with LCR

To get involved with LCR, and use our studios, we need to make sure that our volunteers can understand how to use our studios and work our kit!

This is where our training sessions come in! We'll be hosting a series of regular training sessions across a variety of skills and settings, to help you learn how to be a radio host - whatever your experience!

As you climb of our three levels (Beginner, Intermediate & Advanced), you'll be able to make better shows and learn more about radio in the process! Find out more about the next sessions and how to get involved on our volunteers page.
