About Us

Scratch Radio is the official student radio station of Birmingham City Students' Union, broadcasting across the University's five main campuses, to over 25,000 students.

Birmingham City University Chancellor, Lenny Henry, at our City Centre campus.

The station began life as a joint student and community venture back in the early 2000's and its alumni have gone on to be part of the radio sector at every level, from community stations through commercial brands and up to BBC Radio 1 and 2.

Scratch is run by a committee of students, many of whom study at the University's highly acclaimed School of Media with the option to use the industry standard facilities there alongside their own, purpose built, digital studios in the heart of the City Centre campus.
