Radio Airthrey was set up in the early 1970s as Scotland's first campus-based student radio station. The station was later rebranded as 'Air3 1350' and most recently 'Air3 Radio' reflecting the change in technology and broadcasting technique.[2]


Air3 Radio is made up of almost 170 members and contributors. Throughout the year they present shows, produce live broadcast and sessions, interview bands, and create features to educate and inform the public and students alike.

There is a strong music team which deals with all aspects of label communication and processes, reviews, playlists and gives feedback to musicians both signed and unsigned from all over the world.

In keeping with the University of Stirling Student Union Constitution, the Air3 Radio Society is run by an elected committee.[1]
