We are a Community Radio station that targets the many varied communities that live and work in the Oldham Metropolitan Borough area.
The key difference in our output compared to other radio stations is how our programmes reach a wide cross section of our community through regular programme strands. We “narrowcast”, rather than “broadcast” to many different people, resulting in a wide range of “appointment to listen” programmes.
Oldham Community Radio is a not-for-profit organisation and operates on a limited budget. Within UK Community Radio legislation there are various restrictions on commercial activity and requirements on diverse funding streams.

We broadcast on 99.7fm and DAB+ in the Oldham and immediate surrounding areas. You can also listen on computer, mobile and smart speakers.
