About ULFM

wolves_1ULFM is University of Limerick’s student radio station. The station was founded in 2011, and is operated entirely by student volunteers. We broadcast 24 hours a day, 7 days a week from September-May (college semester), with student produced programmes brodcast between 11am-11pm Monday-Thursday and 11am-4pm Fridays. Outside of these hours we broadcast syndicate shows, repeats of our own shows and autoDJ. We let our equipment take a rest during the summertime. The station broadcasts via the internet only, meaning you can listen anywhere in the world via a computer, smartphone, ipod, tablet device, internet radio etc etc.

You can tune in via our website, Itunes Radio (search ULFM), the TuneIn app, and hopefully very soon via our own app.

Society

In September 2013 ULFM became a society, under the umbrella of UL Wolves Clubs & Societies.  ULFM is now part of a large community of 71 other clubs and societies

All of our programmes are produced by current students of the University. Too many take part to list but there’s about 80 per semester on average between various roles.

Advertising + Sponsorship

We are keen to build relationships with companies both local and national who seek to reach a large student audience. For more details on rates etc please contact us.

Music Submission

We often get asked will we accept music from unsigned bands etc etc. Of course we will. Either post a CD to ULFM Station Manager, Communications Office, ULSU, University of Limerick, or transfer it via WeTransfer to playlist@ulfm.ie. Mp3 files should be 128kbps standard minimum

For September 2013 we aim to devote at least 1 hour per week to new music submitted to us.

Technical

ULFM uses Audio Technika, Yamaha, dbx and Denon equipment. And we’ve enough computing power to NASA, and that’s a fact! We also have an on air light.

Our servers are provided with the generous support of VMotion, located near UL in the National Technology Park.

Thanks to ITD for their undivided help and co-operation.
