The University of Southampton Students’ Union student-run radio station, Surge Radio, interviewed BBC Radio 1 DJ, Chris Stark, as part of a new launch on BBC Radio Solent last night.

The interview with Chris Stark aired live on Surge on Sunday 23 September and was played on BBC Radio Solent as a part of the launch of their evening show, Teenage Takeover with Stephanie Newenhouse, a new show which aims to celebrate and champion young people.

Chris Stark, who is a University of Southampton and Surge Radio alumnus, appeared as a guest and was interviewed by Surge Radio, before he appeared as the headliner for the Students’ Union’s Freshers’ Welcome Festival on campus.  In the interview, Chris spoke about his time as a University of Southampton student, where he studied politics, and his time at Surge Radio, which he says was his “big passion.”

“it was really exciting to have Chris Stark back in the studio”

Surge Station Manager, Polly Marquis, says “It was really exciting to have Chris Stark back in the studio, we have a good relationship with him through our social media channels so it was great to see that materialise. As well as him being back his experiences with Freshers’ week and getting into student radio, the fact that we were able to do all this in collaboration with BBC Solent was amazing. Hopefully it’ll really get the word across about how much fun it is to be involved with student radio, and where it can take you.”
