A countdown of some of the best moments from inside the Warwick University student radio station, RaW 1251AM 🎓
📍 Behind the scenes of the charity radio marathon where students from the radio station RaW 1251AM broadcast non stop in all weathers for 100 hours in a tent at Warwick University raising money for Scope.
📍 Show or No is a game in which players have to guess which Show names are actually on the RaW 1251AM schedule and which one's were made up in the car. Here BBC Radio 1’s Abbie McCarthy and Free Radio’s Adam Wilbourn take on the game.
📍 During the MaRawWthon 2015, a 100 hour charity broadcast in aid of Scope (a disability charity), the RaW 1251AM presenters took to Warwick University’s piazza and made pancakes. In reality, they made one really inedible pancake.
📍 See behind the scenes of Warwick University’s free festival for undergraduates including performances from Clean Bandit, Foxes, Nick Mulvey and Zane Lowe and coverage from RaW 1251AM
📍 Inspired by the Hugh Laurie and Stephen Fry sketch, guests had to describe several dirty words on RaW 1251AM with clean dictionary definitions without breaking the Ofcom broadcasting code. It’s harder than you think!
📍 Naked nights out, chat up lines and getting to know housemates; the most embarrassing Freshers Week stories from Warwick University’s Students and RaW 1251AM.
📍 The standard Never Mind The Buzzcocks classic comes to RaW 1251AM. Guess the intro on Tim Arstall’s Alternative View which slowly descends into ridiculousness and somebody swears on air.
📍 For Halloween, the University's Costcutter was raided of the weirdest foods that could be found. Unwilling participants James and Ed 'blindfolded' themselves with items from around RaW1251AM and try and work out exactly what was placed in front of them.
📍 Posters, extra pillows and fancy dress; items to check off your university checklist according to Warwick University students and RaW 1251AM presenters.

📍 James Van Hinsbergh and Matt Greenham host the weekly primetime show Tux Tuesdays on RaW 1251AM and somehow manage never to exhaust the campus Costcutter’a selection of biscuits for their blindfolded challenge, Taking The Biscuit.
📍 Phillip Stoneman gives RaW 1251AM listeners the chance to Live Up their weekend every Saturday. None more so than Joe and Catherine who were subjected to the game (which only aired once!) Hula Hoops vs. Hula Hoop.
📍 Hear BBC Radio 2 Presenter and Warwick Alumnus Simon Mayo talk about starting his radio career on Warwick’s University’s student radio stations RaW 1251AM.

📍 Tux Tuesdays was a 2 hour primetime show on RaW 1251AM and it played host to the well known feature Taking The Biscuit. The team blindfolded a willing contestant and got them to feel up a biscuit and try and guess what it was. A good old radio biscuit feature!
