We established the station in September 2016 and in this time have acquired a busy on air schedule, selected our committee and joined the Student Radio Association - to which we're hoping to put forward nominations in the forthcoming year.
BAFTARS Coverage 2017
On the 14th of June it was BAFTARS time - the University of Salford's decadent answer to the BAFTAS ... where we celebrated the very best of the work produced by students on the BA TV & Radio (or BATAR as it is known) this year.
Congratulations to all who won awards and those nominees who were pipped to the post!
The award ceremony, hosted by TV and radio legend, Terry Christian and featuring a stellar cast of judges from the BBC and the commercial sector was broadcast LIVE right here on Utter Radio and featured the added spice of sarcastic Eurovision-style commentary from Ben Jones and Lee Wilkinson.
But that is not all ...
... from 10am-6pm the Utter Radio team presented a series of two-hour long programmes featuring interviews with nominees and samples of the nominated productions.
And from 6-7pm the 'Red Carpet Show' saw Ryan Croughan buttonhole the great and the good as they traversed the legendary BAFTARS crimson axminster.

Every month, they’re let out of the asylum. Every month, the fair men and women of the ‘Minor Spillage’ come together to create madness. The Minor Spillage Sketch Show is an eclectic set of comedy sketches, so expect the unexpected! Jason Statham could be making cupcakes, a man could be devoted to fax machines, or a woman could try to destroy the world with pure Liverpudlian scran. Embrace our madness!

Have you ever wanted to know how many times lions mate in a day?
How about how many muscles your mouth uses when you speak?
Or even perhaps how many knives, forks and spoons there are in the White House?
Well then you need a Tea Break – the most absurd quiz show in the world! Each week, contestants come for their cuppa and are left to gently simmer, with a five round test that grills their abilities of recalling random facts, inventing ridiculous stories, and listening to the weirdest of songs. So sit back, relax, it’s time to put the kettle on!
‘Tea Break’ airs every Friday at 7pm on Utter Radio, and you can catch the episodes whenever you like from the Monday after broadcast on www.soundcloud.com/minorspillage.
