Minoh FM starts broadcasting -- (ongoing University-Community Collaboration)


The conclusion of a university-community collaboration agreement between Osaka University and Minoh city, a new FM radio station known as "Tackey 816 Minoh FM" went on air at the beginning of April 2010, featuring the regular program outlined below. The program is a product of collaboration between the university and Minoh city.

Osaka University and Minoh city welcome this cooperative venture, seeing it as a chance to introduce local citizens to university events and cultural assets and, thereby, be a key to fostering a closer relationship between local citizens and the university.

Henceforth, every month, students and educators from Osaka University will present a program about a variety of events and aspects of the university and, in this way, promote the university by "living locally"!

We look forward to hearing about our program from many of our listeners!

  • Program name: "City Radio" (Osaka University University-Community Collaboration Venture)
  • Broadcast time/date: Monthly on every 2nd Thursday from 3:00 ~ 4:00 p.m.
(Programs will be re-broadcast on the Sunday following the broadcast from 4:00 p.m.)

The first "City Radio" program was recorded on April 6 and featured TAKASUGI Eiichi (Trustee, Vice-President, and head of Kaitokudo for the 21st Century) and Professor NAGATA Yasushi (Publicity and University-Community Collaboration Board & Graduate School of Letters) who spoke about episodes in their lives as well as activities of Kaitokudo for the 21st Century and the University-Community Collaboration Board.
