Your Say Torbay


Listen to "Your Say Torbay" on Spreaker.


Live Panel Talk Show

We helped the Torbay Youth Parliament to produce and perform a live radio, pre-election panel show featuring local politicians including Kevin Foster, The Mayor Gordon Oliver and the Churston Headteacher, Robert Owers. We trained the Youth Parliament in radio production skills and they produced vox pops of young people's views around jobs, mental health and the curriculum and played these out as part of the broadcast. This was part of the Made From Scratch programme funded by the Torbay Youth Cultural Partnership's Bridge Challenge Fund.

“The young people from Ocean Youth Radio did a great job hosting the event. Their presence created a professional atmosphere which enhanced the experience for all the participants. The live broadcast and recording provides documentation of the event as well as an opportunity to reach a wider audience.’ Torbay Music Hub, 2016
