OAR FM is passionate about people of all backgrounds to be heard and connected. We provide a unique opportunity for Dunedin-based ethnic groups and individuals to share their language, music and culture with Dunedin listeners by making their own radio shows and podcasts.
Listeners can tune in on 105.4FM and 1575AM. All of the Connecting Cultures programmes are also available online, as a live stream, and podcast from oar.org.nz, accessmedia.nz, and also your favourite podcast platforms!
This means Dunedin broadcasters can also connect with communities in New Zealand, and with friends, family and other listeners around the world!
