VOTE NOW - 2019 MAGNET AWARDS: IT’S THE U in RADIO U

“Student radio claims legitimate excuse for a music infested party”

Over the past decade, RDU has recognised it’s broadcast talent with the ‘Magnet’
or ‘U’ award for volunteering, long service and performance on-air. ‘Host with the Most’, ‘Best on Show’ and ‘Service to Station’ awards give our community the recognition they deserve, and highlights the talent and dedication coming through the doors each week.

Honouring the former competitions with the same names, the ‘Roundup’ Magnet Award for best live/band track of the year and the ‘Decknology’ Magnet Award for best electronic/producer track of the year are the NEW awards, that will join with the ‘Strange Attractor’ Magnet award to shed some light on the most unusual yet compellingly magnetic pieces on playlist for 2019.

It’s simply just one great Xmas party to finish up the calendar year. And now with a few more high fives!

PUBLIC VOTING NOVEMBER 1st – 30th

This is Zettie’s tale from her birth date in 1965 through to her ‘passing’ at the age of 105.
