Our 20th Birthday broadcast is coming soon - 6th November - 4th December 2018. About 200 students take part in OSCAR Radio in various roles during any single broadcast period: technician, presenter, newsreader, manager, director, sales and marketing, and many other contributory roles. During OSCAR's broadcast period, the station transmits live between 7:30 and 8:30 am, and between 5 pm and 10:30 pm every day. At other times, it broadcasts music and repeats of shows. Students are responsible for both the day-to-day running of the station and the quality of the broadcasts. This gives them the opportunity to take part in a 'real world' project while at school, under the overall supervision of one specially appointed staff member.
