Surge’s Station Manager, Toby Leveson, has taken over our blog to give you the tunes to accompany your summer BBQ. Here’s what he said…

If there’s one thing a British summer can guarantee, it’s a BBQ. And whether that BBQ is in the sun or in the rain, you’re going to need a playlist. So we’ve done the hard work for you and made you a playlist suited to all your BBQ needs.

That is what we do at Surge, the University of Southampton’s very own Student Radio Station. We entertain you, fill your ears with wide variety of music, whether it be the hottest releases or the old school classics. We keep you up to date with the latest news and sport from both Southampton and the rest of the world. We put on events, run competitions, interview huge artists. And the best bit?

You can join in too. Whether you fancy yourself as the next Greg James or Annie Mac, or simply just want to have a radio show with your mates, Surge is completely free to get involved with. We broadcast 24/7, 365 days a year, and offer countless opportunities for anyone wishing to join in on the fun, from tech to marketing to presenting.

The best way to get involved is to join our Facebook group and drop me an email at stationmanager@surgeradio.co.uk, and you’ll be kept up to date with everything that goes on, meaning you’ll be ready to take to the airwaves come the start of the new term.

For now though, settle back, sizzle the sausages, and whack on Surge’s BBQ playlist.
