R1's Greg James joins Shock Radio tomorrow

Wednesday 19 September 2018

BRITAIN’s favourite DJ Greg James is on campus tomorrow – Thursday September 20.

The Radio1 presenter is hosted by award-winning student radio station, Shock Radio.

Greg, who recently took over the flagship Breakfast Show from Nick Grimshaw, will be doing his set from 12noon to 1pm broadcasting from University House, Peel Campus.

We understand segments of the show will appear on Radio 1 during the day.

Shock presenter Tom Hinckley, a final year TV & Radio student?  said: “Wow. This is amazing. It’s going to be brilliant.”

 It’s not the first time Shock and Greg have brushed shoulders, both were at the I Love Student Radio awards in 2017 where our media students scooped two prizes - Best Training initiative and Most Improved student radio station.

Shock Radio is made up of a team of dedicated students, who work hard outside of lectures to deliver Manchester’s largest student station.

Shock Radio has been the training ground for several of today’s top industry players, including alumni Louis Chadwick, who is a producer on The Asian Network, Sophie Yates, who is a presenter on XS Manchester and Megan Stumm, a producer at Key 103.
