Broadcasting from the heart of the Percy Gee, LUSH Radio is the University of Leicester Student Radio Station. With over 100 shows, there’s so much ... See more variation across the output that you’re sure to find something you want to hear! Since 1997, LUSH Radio has been run and presented by students, providing Leicester with an alternative to both local and national radio stations. LUSH is here to cater to you: Your songs, your sounds, your station. Officially founded in 1996, LUSH Radio (formerly LUSH FM) is the radio station of the University of Leicester Students Union. It is run and presented exclusively by students and broadcasts a mixture of music, chat and news, providing both Leicester students and residents a local alternative to other regional and national radio stations. It is widely thought that the letter ‘H’ in the acronym ‘LUSH’ stands for ‘Hits’, making the official title “Leicester University Student Hits Radio”, although this title has been disputed, and alternative expressions have been assumed! Presenter numbers vary, but are often in the region of between 80-150, presenting music styles from indie rock, R&B, house, dance, pop and metal through to bhangra and other internationally flavoured music. From 2005, the radio station has pursued a policy of giving it’s presenters a free run in the production and programming of the station’s shows, leading to a heavily diverse style and method of output. In 2009, LUSH Radio introduced it’s first ever Chart Show, playing the Student Union’s Top 10 tracks as voted for by students of the University. The station broadcasts biannually via a Restricted Service Licence. From 2008, LUSH Radio has broadcast on 87.7FM. Irrelevant to its FM status, the station broadcasts throughout most of the academic year via a dedicated webcast. The studio is currently located on the top floor of the Percy Gee Building overlooking the main entrance to the Students Union, although plans have been drawn up by the Students Union management to relocate LUSH Radio to the center of the building
