SOAS Radio: Never miss a beat


SOAS Radio, the Student Union’s online station and unofficial voice of our School, brings music, culture and society together in its January and February offering.

In Art Rock Special, the latest podcast of SOAS Radio’s Wednesday Sessions, DJ Isuru explores the world of Art Rock with tunes from musicians from the 70s to the 90s who pushed for societal change. Think Brian Eno and Lou Reed.

If you are still confused about the American elections, listen to this informative talk by journalist cum professor cum author David C. Unger as a latest part of the podcast series of the Centre for International Studies and Diplomacy (CISD). In this talk, he explores the possible reasons behind various groups within America voting the way they did and the issues that drove the vote.

If you are craving something hot in this cold weather, listen to the spicy tunes of DJ Ritu, pioneering DJ and BBC Radio presenter, who produces and hosts A World in London podcast series. In ‘Nu global music for the New Year!’, the latest addition of her world music series, DJ Ritu spins the tunes of fresh artists from Honduras, Turkey, Poland and India.

Finally, let us direct you to an exciting event that will take place at the Brunei Gallery Lecture Theatre in February: the World Radio Day 2017. This event aims to explore today’s world of radio whilst bringing together community stations, local organisations and international media groups. Under the ‘Radio and Global Transitions’ theme, the participants will chat about migration, health crises, innovative communication technologies and how these are reflected in radio programmes. What an excellent opportunity to learn about contemporary approaches to radio.
