Welcome to Hospital Radio BedfordWelcome to the website for Hospital Radio Bedford.
We have been providing entertainment to the patients of Bedford Hospital since 28th June 1975; celebrating 35 years of broadcasting during the last year
The station is run entirely by volunteers and we broadcast 24 hours a day 7 days a week with a combination of live and pre recorded programmes.
Our service is broadcast free of charge throughout the hospital using the HTS Hospicom system and bedside headsets. You can even call us free of charge using these terminals. Click here for details of how this equipment works.
Please feel free to browse though some of the pages on this site to find out more about our history, the programmes you can listen into, what goes on behind the scenes and even some of the faces behind the voices!
One of our flagship programmes is the Request Programme which is broadcast every weekday evening between 8 and 9pm. Not only does this give us a chance to meet our listeners but also to play some of their favourite songs.
If you think you would like to join us we are always looking for people who are able to help with either ward visits to collect requests, presenting, fundraising or in the running of the station please click here; we look forward to hearing from you.
