USDS does aural…

University Radio Falmer

Towards the end of last term, four debaters went up to the palatial mansion that is the URF studio to have a live debate on air, on the motion: “This house would ban the showing of Hostel-style slasher films in cinemas.” It was pretty much an excuse for us to talk about porn and people cutting off their own ankles, but we must have done something right because we have been invited to have a regular debating slot every fortnight, startingĀ  next term. If anyone would like to take part in a radio debate, please do get in touch!

For those of you who missed the Hostel debate, you can download a copy of your very own, which you can treasure and listen to every evening for the rest of your life, here.
