President Michael D Higgins launched the station and returned in 2009 to help us launch our new premises in √Āras na MacL√©inn.
With two full-time and one part-time paid staff - fuelled mostly by caffeine - looking after operations and compliance, the station is home to up to 150 volunteers and many more contributors annually. We also host third level, TY, T√ļs and CE placements each year.
We‚Äôre on FM 11:00-04:00 Monday-Friday, 13:00-22:00 Saturdays, and we web stream 24/7 all of the time, so even when we‚Äôre not live on 101.3 you can always listen in. We take time off FM during the busy campus exam periods. Our key areas of broadcast focus are student issues and news, local sports, environmental and science updates and new Irish music.
We are delighted to partner with For√≥ige, Shining Light, Babor√≥ International Arts Festival for Children, the University of Galway's MAs and BA in Journalism, Acadamh na hOllscola√≠ochta Gaeilge amongst others to regularly create programming.
Having trained, supported and given a voice to thousands of people over the years, we're as excited about the future as we are grateful for all the volunteers and guests that have gone before.
We're part of the 20+ member Craol Community Radio network and one of the three full-time FM student radio stations in Ireland (with Wired FM, Limerick & UCC98.3 in Cork).
We have an initial run of introduction meetings at the start of each semester, followed by desk training, then it's demo time and finally, you go on air! All meetings will be notified in advance by email, so make sure we have your details.
