OSCAR Radio is the official Oundle School radio station and since its first broadcast in 1998 it has been one of the longest running school FM radio stations in the UK. In its 18 years of broadcasting OSCAR has helped to involve over 2000 young people from Oundle School and to this day continues to be the only entirely student run radio station in the country. Since receiving its UK Restricted Service Licence OSCAR has broadcast shows full of charisma and talent; from music and news to sport and entertainment the versatile nature of OSCAR radio has proved a hit within both the school and the surrounding area.

The annual broadcast for OSCAR radio, which this year airs at 5pm on Tuesday 8th of November running until 10:30pm Monday 5th of December, incorporates the help of around 100 students who pride themselves in committing to their various roles whether as presenters, technicians or directors. Under the guidance of this year’s current Manging Directors Mercedes Bannister and James Stringer the broadcast promises to host many of the radio’s favourite regular shows such as ‘Just a minute’ and ‘Match of the Day’, and many fresh, new shows airing for the first time including ‘Food and travels’ and ‘The Saturday morning breakfast show.’

The OSCAR broadcast is a highlight in the annual calendar so be sure to tune in on 87.9 FM from Tuesday 8th November onwards to catch the exciting and entertaining shows of OSCAR radio.
