Who Are We


Hospital Radio Bedford has been providing entertainment to the patients of Bedford Hospital since 28th June 1975; celebrating 40 years of broadcasting during 2015. The station is run entirely by volunteers broadcasting 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. We broadcast a combination of live and pre-recorded programmes.

Our service is broadcast free of charge throughout the hospital using the free WIFI network, so look out for the HRB ‘listen now’ logo.


To make a request or chat to the team please call 01234 792020

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.
