Otago Access Radio

Otago Access Radio was formed in 1990.

Who are we: 

OAR FM Dunedin is a vibrant, inclusive, not-for-profit station, hosting programmes and podcasts by, for and about our local communities. We are passionate about enabling Dunedin-based ethnic groups and people of all backgrounds to be heard and connected. The station provides a unique opportunity for you to share your language, music and culture with Dunedin listeners by making your own radio show and podcast.

Currently, we have radio shows and podcasts in Mandarin, Malayalam, Arabic, Samoan, Korean, Tamil, Telugu, Cantonese, Vietnamese, Te Reo Maori and English. We also have radio shows and podcasts sharing the beautiful Tongan and Malaysian cultures, stories of women’s cultural identities, and also news and information for migrants and ethnic communities in Dunedin.

You 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!
