Following their hugely successful funding drive in May, in which Frome College Radio Club students broadcasted live for a marathon 24hrs, the project has expanded into Oakfield Academy, with the aim of helping the Year 8 students with the transition to Frome College. 

The College radio club donated recording equipment and, with the help of Frome.FM, arranged training in OFCOM standards, presentation, and technical skills.

Frome.FM Director for Children & Young People, Jennie Smith, said, “Frome.FM are proud to be able to offer the young people of Frome this unique and exciting opportunity to broadcast regular shows on FromeFM. It enables young people of all abilities to work with and get to know people within the wider community of Frome. It allows them to have a say in services that affect them and to develop the confidence and expertise to articulate what matters to them, providing vital skills and experience that last for a lifetime”

The new show, ‘Acorns on Air’ was a huge success, and the team, led by Oakfield Head of Maths, Mr Andrew Stephenson, enjoyed it so much they asked to present a Christmas show. You can hear ‘Acorns on Air’ on Wednesday 19 December at 4.00pm on 96.6fm locally, or anywhere via the internet on www.Frome.fm
