Specialty: These are our ‘niche’ shows scattered throughout the broadcasting day, on whatever you want – movies, music, theatre, books, art, advice, ethnic and multilingual shows, etc. etc. etc.

DJ slot: We have a strong DJ community at USYD, and partnering with DJ Soc (and local Sydney artists) we invite DJ’s on to our late-night slot to mix some fresh sets every week.
