Crush Radio is the University of Hertfordshire’s very own radio station, which is broadcasted from the College Lane campus. Crush has two stations: Crush Radio, the more mainstream station for the latest music, news about the campus and a host of entertainment based shows in the evening; Crush Underground, which is the more alternative station allowing us to cover all student interests. Shows range from ‘The Nerd Heard’ to heavy metal shows.

According to Radio Manager, Robert Gammon, “Underground also hosts live DJ mixes and is working with the DJ society to run DJ training sessions.”
When asked why people should listen to Crush, Gammon replied, “People should listen to Crush because it has all the latest news, all events that you want to know about, plus exclusive interviews. There are also normally some good giveaways as we work with The Forum, Hertfordshire.”
Crush has been keeping busy training new members with special sessions, one of which was with The Pips. “We have also hosted a few events and outside broadcasts in The Forum. I would also keep an eye out for ‘Crushmas’ which is under planning” Gammon commented.
“I am about to put the Christmas songs on the system so we should have a fair amount of Christmas spirit around the Crush studios. Crushmas, as I said, is under planning. We have a lot of plans for a big special event and working with TV and Print to give you a Christmas that you won’t forget with Crush.”
