About Us

UCT Radio 104.5fm started way back in 1976. That is about three generations’ worth of human beings who, within the twenty kilometer radius that is UCT Radio’s footprint, have been brilliantly bombarded with our radical flavour of broadcasting.

UCT Radio is part and parcel of the University of Cape Town’s twenty two thousand-strong (and still counting) academic community. According to the write-up on the UCT website, we are ‘a student-run, campus-community station, catering not only to the students and staff of UCT but also secondary school pupils and the broader youth community of Cape Town‘. It should also be said though that we are ‘the biggest campus station in Cape Town and the only one licensed to broadcast to the metropole‘.

In short, we are in tune with YOU!
