RaW at the Student Radio Awards
RaW had a great night out at the 2006 Student Radio Awards. The station picked up several awards, including a Gold Award for Best Technical Innovation, which I played a small bit-part in.
My interview with David Davis – listen to it here – got Bronze in the Best Interview category, beaten by Pete Swan’s interview with Boris Johnson. RaW clearly loves its politics…
Matt Rebeiro came second in the Best Newcomer category, and Jimmy and Adam came second in the Best Entertainment category. The station also came second in the Best Station category, meaning RaW is essentially the second best student station in Britain (meaning it would be rather stupid of the Union to force it off air next summer…)
It was a fantastic night out, and a great day too. The nominees were invited to the HQ of GCap Media, the biggest radio group in the country, and the home of Capital Radio, Xfm, Classic FM and more. We got a great tour of the place, and sat in on some live radio shows.
Credit should go to some of the industry celebs who stayed a lot longer than in previous years… even if it was only because they were on the pull (a certain Radio 1 DJ knows who I’m talking about and I’d warn them I have photographic evidence!).
As well as a successful piss-up and a great night of success, it was also fantastic to catch up with the RaW Massive! Now it’s over to the next generation to make RaW a success well into the future (blub!)

RaW Nominated for 8 Student Radio Awards
RaW has picked up 8 nominations at this year’s Student Radio Awards, including one in the prestigious Best Station category.
Matt Rebeiro, RaW’s Head of Production, picked up a nomination for his shows last year in the category of Best Newcomer.
RaW’s technical wizards get some much-deserved recognition for their work with a nomination in the Best Technical Innovation category, for their custom-built Digital Playout System known as Digiplay, which is one of the most revolutionary bits of kit in British student radio ( read more – .pdf )
RaW’s Doppelganger picked up a nomination in the category of Best Comedy and Drama ( listen ), as did They Think RaW Sport’s All Over, a not particularly subtle rip-off of a well known TV show ( listen ).
Peter Swan and RaW News are nominated for Best Interview, for interviews with Boris Johnson and David Davis ( listen ) respectively.
James Buckland and Adam Westbrook receive a well-deserved nomination ( listen ) in the Best Entertainment category for their programme James and Adam’s Adventures in Radiophonic Wonderland.
And finally RaW was nominated in the Best Station category. RaW has won this twice in the past and the winner gets to produce a programme for BBC Radio 1 later this year.
Congratulations to all the nominees! All of the winners will be announced on 7th November at a swanky London ceremony hosted by Radio 1’s Jo Whiley and Scott Mills.
