About radio

CSR FM, short for Community and Student Radio, is a student and community radio station based in Canterbury, England. The station is primarily funded by the University of Kent & Kent Union and is run by volunteers within CSR’s Committee and their student union partner​​.

The station first aired on 15th January 2007 and was the first student-led community radio station in the country to acquire a community FM license. Originally, it was broadcasting on 97.4 FM, but it has since discontinued FM broadcasting​​.

CSR FM has a rich history, with student radio existing in Canterbury since 1966, initially on an unlicensed basis. The station is a combined effort from the student unions of the University of Kent and Canterbury Christ Church University, who decided to make a single bid for the Canterbury community radio license​​.

Over the years, CSR FM has been recognized for its outreach projects and has hosted diverse programming, including daytime shows, specialist music, and speech-based radio programming. The station has aimed to provide a wide range of programs and shows to suit everyone, with a fully operational broadcast studio located at the Student Media Centre on the University of Kent campus. The station has broadcasted 24/7, 365 days a year​​.
