Births, Marriages and Deaths

Launching in early 2021 – a new Oldham Community Radio 99.7fm service. A daily broadcast digest of births, marriages and deaths announcements on the award-winning local station.


Think of the traditional (some might say old) idea of newspaper classified personal announcements and bring the concept into truly accessible medium of local community radio to enable you to get your message out to a listenership across the Oldham borough (and beyond via online) at key points throughout the day and evening without hassle or delay – typically 24/48 hours from receipt to broadcast!


If someone wishes to place a notice of a birth, marriage or death, just complete a simple form on our website and pays the appropriate fee via our secure PayPal system. On receipt of the information, our production team will check for any errors and once approved for broadcast, the message will be recorded in our production studio and, within 48 hours will be included in our daily (Monday to Friday) “Oldham Today” magazine programme at approximately 10.10am and subsequently repeated at approximately 5.10pm and again, the following morning at approximately 5.10am. Messages will also be incorporated into our popular “Wireless Programme” Monday to Friday at approximately 3.10pm.
These packages will have a unique identity and reach that can only be guaranteed by community “narrowcasting”. Coupled with inclusion within the station’s Listen Again facility online, any messages will be heard by different audiences up to four times daily at least for a very competitive fee.


In line with regional print media, costs are calculated at £1.00 per complete word. There is a minimum order of 20 words (enough for a very basic information message). There is no upper limit on the number of words to allow you freedom of expression.

Prices are correct as at 1.1.21 and may be subject to change from time to time.

We will require payment in full via PayPal at time of ordering.
