About Scratch Radio

Scratch Radio is Birmingham’s favourite student station, broadcasting 24/7. We’re based at the brand new, multi-million pound, Parkside Campus of Birmingham City University and are one of the only student and community radio station’s in the UK.

We welcome anyone to get involved with the station, whether you’re a current BCU student or a member of the local community. Some of our members are studying Media courses, some are working in the industry…and some have never set foot in a studio! Whatever your level of experience; as long as you’re 18+, there’s a role for you!

We use industry standard equipment and software and work in conjunction with Birmingham School of Media; one of the most highly rated media faculties in the UK. If you’d be interested in visiting our studios with a view to joining then we can happily arrange that; just drop an email to
