Pure FM with Marvin and Kat from the Vodafone Big Top 40

I’m so pleased and proud of my former student radio station Pure FM!

This evening they won Best Student Radio Chart show at The Student Radio Awards!

Huge congratulations to Ed, Glen and Oli who – from what I can remember – have given Pure FM their first group Gold win!

Last year Glen Scott won Best Male so this year’s win means he is a gold award winner two years in a row!

Hear the entry:

Here’s what the judges had to say:

This was a really well produced entry. Glen and Ollie combine the functional bits of hosting a chart show – teasing ahead, music passion, phone interviews etc, with funny and entertaining content. The pre production was excellent – beds that really fitted the show, phone interview with an act from the Emerging Icons chart, but they also riffed well on the spot – gags about hat/number two and 2012 London Games/javelin were very funny. Also nice to hear them link the student radio mascot section to the SRA Twitter – showing good knowledge of their audience and trying to get them involved. Overall, a fun and very professional listen.

This was an excellent entry – the presenters were strong with a good rapport, and the production values and use of production was the strongest from all the entries. The show felt professional, but had a real student focus – which was excellent. There was good drama and tension around the number 1 moment, and you made sure the listener was involved telling the story of the chart at all times. Excellent work.

Congratulations to everyone at Pure FM who are also celebrating their 20th anniversary this year!
