    Open Airwaves

    open_airwavesEvery weekday at 7pm, OUTREACH RADIO presents Open Airwaves – the chance for our local listeners to take over the airwaves of South Hampshire, the South Coast and the Isle of Wight, and present your own one-off or ad-hoc radio show.

    Think of it as a cross between open-mic night and podcasting! You create the content, and we’ll broadcasting it to listeners across our coverage area and online.

    We know there’s a huge amount of talent across our local area that “traditional radio” doesn’t allow for.  Often, it’s not feasible to produce a regular programme, so a one-off or occasional spot is all that’s needed.  Because OUTREACH RADIO is here to serve you, we’re rewriting the rules of local radio, and innovating new ways to bring interesting content and information to our listeners – and what better way than from our listeners themselves!

    Whether it’s a music programme, musician or band performance, comedy show, poetry reading, storytelling, sharing thoughts and opinions or providing support, we’re open to anything – within ethical reason 🙂  We’ll leave it to your imagination!

    All you have to do is send us a high-quality MP3 file of up to 56 minutes in length, we’ll compliance check it to ensure it doesn’t break OfCom rules, (e.g. not offensive, no bad language, no advertising or promotions, no political bias/agenda, etc).  Once we’re happy that it’s all technically OK, (and don’t worry, we’ll work with you if anything needs tweaking), we’ll allocate you an on-air date for the broadcast. It couldn’t be simpler!

    Please email to find our more, and don’t forget to include a contact phone number so that we can reach you for a chat… it’s sometimes easier than going back & forth on emails, and helps answer your questions quickly and openly!

    We look forward to hearing from you soon 🙂
