Formed as Parkfield Xtreme Radio in June 2013, Ocean Youth is all about helping Torbay’s young people to use their voice, share their views and play their music while gaining skills at the same time. Our station is for all local young people from all backgrounds and abilities. We have been broadcasting online since June 2013 and have run three FM broadcasts across the bay since then.
Interviewing, MCing, DJing, presenting, reporting, producing, jingle-making, engineering are just some of the roles that the young people have taken on to make Ocean Youth what it is.
Ocean Youth is based at Parkfield Youth Centre in Paignton, but has also run extensive outreach work in schools and community centres across the bay. Since the station began we've had over 25000 listens on our online platform - Spreaker.
We want to thank all of the organisations that have helped or committed to help young people in the bay create fun and interesting radio to improve the landscape for everyone.
Get involved - tune in - and take part in radio for the youth community of Torbay!
