Oldham Community Radio is astation that targets the many varied communities that live and work in the Oldham Metropolitan Borough area.
The key difference in its output compared to other radio stations is how the programmes reach a wide cross section of the community through regular programme strands. That means “narrowcast”, rather than “broadcast” to many different people, resulting in a wide range of “appointment to listen” programmes.


Since 1994 Oldham Community Radio has broadcast a series of 9 short term trial ‘RSL’ broadcasts each developing the “narrowcasting” programme format, which led to the successful application for a full time broadcast licence.
Oldham Community Radio has been broadcasting full time since March 2007. And on DAB+ since December 2023.
