Bucks Scout Radio, also known as BSR, is an online radio station in the county of Buckinghamshire, England.
BSR was originally founded as MK Scout Radio (Milton Keynes) by Gary and Jason which started “A long time ago”, in 2015. Then in February 2018 MK Scout Radio re-branded and relaunched as Bucks Scout Radio, the name we all know and love today. This allowed BSR to expand operations to the entire county and not just Milton Keynes.
Bucks Scout Radio is an online Scouting radio station that is run by volunteers in association with Buckinghamshire scouts. We broadcast during the week giving you all the scouting news and entertainment. Check out the schedule for more information. We also attend county events, and broadcast live right to your living room!
We are a full time station, so music plays non stop during the day thanks to our AutoDJ system, Phillipa, so even if no one is presenting live, you can still sit back and relax listening to BSR!
How can I get Involved?
There are many ways that you can get involved with Bucks Scout Radio, the main way is just to listen in! We always like to engage with the community as much as possible while presenting, so each show has something people can get involved in.
Group visits Invite BSR to come down to your group for an evening or two, to show you some of our equipment and what we do, maybe even go live! We also offer some courses, so get in contact to find out more about that.
Come and see us at events If we are at an event you’re attending, come and see us! We would love to speak to you.
How do I listen?
Bucks Scout Radio is an online radio station, and we broadcast online 24/7. You can access the online stream from the listen tab and on the main page.
We are also big on using TuneIn which is a global radio service, which you can listen to us on. TuneIn is available online, as an app and on smart systems like Alexa. Just say the words “Alexa play Bucks Scout Radio on TuneIn” and bam.
If we are at an event we will also broadcast around the site using local and site speaker systems.
