Insanity Radio

insanitylogoInsanity Radio is run, operated and presented by students from a brand new studio in the Students' Union.

Insanity broadcasts on AM, FM and online 24 hours a day, with presenters in the studio from 8am until 2am every day during term time.

The station takes its name from the Holloway Sanitorium, founded by Thomas Holloway, along with the College that became Royal Holloway. 

Insanity prides itself on being non-commercial and for serving the student body and local community with chart and chat, new music, news and specialist music shows.

As well as the hundreds of students who present on Insanity, we have a large team working behind the scenes making everything happen, such as marketing, promotions, programming, web development, broadcast engineering, music, production and news – so you’ll have plenty of opportunities to get involved!
