radiOrakel was started in 1982 when authorities allowed for local radio stations to operate. Money was then collected at a women’s cultural festival to start up the world’s first women’s radio station. On 16th October 1982 radiOrakel was founded. Rita Westvik was the first editor in chief. In the early days the station’s headquarters were at Karsgata 5 but moved together with AKKS (Aksjon Kvinne Kultur Senter- Women’s Cultural Action Centre) to the loft at the Blitz house at Pilestredet.

radiOrakel is one of the world’s oldest local radio stations and has the proud title as the world’s oldest women’s radio station. The aim of the radio station is to educate women with in the field of radio journalism and sound engineering, and at any time having a membership made up of at least 2/3 women.
