Join Purple Radio

Want your own radio show? Want to be part of one of the largest societies of Durham University? Look no further! Check out below to find out how you can be part of Purple Radio!

Why Join?

As well as being part of one of Durham's largest societies, you are gaining air time! Every member of the station is entitled to a radio show, dependent upon spaces in the schedule. There are opportunities to be involved with the many teams within Purple Radio as well. Being a member of Purple will also entitle you to personalised stash and the opportunity to get involved with our socials.


How Much Will It Cost?

The current fee for joining the station is £20.00 for all members of the union - this is to cover our fees for playing copyrighted music on air, as well as keeping the studio up-and-running. Even if you want to work behind the scenes, you need to be a paid member.


How Do I Join?
In Michaelmas Term

In the first term of the academic year Purple Radio host an introductory meeting, where the Exec explain all the things you can do as part of the station. Straight after, there is a sign-up session, where you can ask the Exec any questions before joining the station or any of the teams. Look out for information in first term about this event!

In Epiphany or Easter Term

If you want to join but missed the introductory meeting do not worry! Get in touch with the Programme Controller if you have any questions or would like to join.

If you would like to join any of the teams, simply sign up in the Members' Area which you will be given a full introudction to in your training.
