Radio emission has been detected from all the stages of stellar evolution across the HR diagram. Its presence reveals both astrophysical phenomena and stellar activity which, otherwise, would not be detectable by other means. The development of large, sensitive interferometers has allowed us to resolve the radio structure of several stellar systems, providing insights into the mass transfer process in close binary systems. I review the main characteristics of the radio emission from several kinds of stars, paying special attention to those cases where such an emission originates in relativistic jets.
