Our studio is set up in such a way that the three microphones are in a triangle and each presenter will be 2m from both of the others, any other visitor to the studio (staff) will be wearing appropriate PPE. You may rest assured that all touch points and microphones will be thoroughly cleaned between programmes so please do excuse us if there is a short delay in programmes starting.

Oscar Radio is the longest running student-run (under 18) radio station- with the supervision of Chris Pettitt, a teacher of music at Oundle School. Oscar radio is celebrating its 22nd anniversary this year, with its first air date in September 1997. The radio station is established in Oundle School, Northamptonshire, England. It has broadcast on 87.7Mhz, 87.9 MHz and 96.3 MHz FM as well as via the internet during term-time active periods. It makes use of the UK Restricted Service Licence to broadcast to Oundle School and to the surrounding area for up to 8 weeks a year. The current managing directors are Penny Hodgson and Kim Fung, both in the lower 6th at Oundle.

We are now embracing the 21st century as we retire our FM transmitter and broadcast exclusively via the internet stream to our thousands of listeners across the world.
