Ted on the ward 

In January 1998 the Radio Cherwell childrens' show was re-born and is now broadcast every week.

Our presenters visit the Childrens' Hospital (CHOX) at the John Radcliffe Hospital, to take the programme to our young listeners.

'The Weekend For Everything Show' is brim full of quizzes and competitions, stories, fun features and interesting facts AND EVEN PRIZES. It's a two-hour chuckle. Call in to answer a quiz question or just for a fun chat with the team during the show - live on air!!!

Visitors are always welcome to the show. Authors of childrens' books have come in and read passages from their latest childrens' books and recently we even had a visit from a Wizard!

The radio station is an interesting and exciting place, especially when the children's show is being broadcast. If you would like to visit the studio and even take part as a guest on the show, then give us a call on 01865 225522.
