Hi, my name is Peter Orme.
Following seven years presenting a Sunday afternoon show at the Cambridge Military Hospital in Aldershot, I moved to Herefordshire and joined Hereford Hospital Radio in 1990. I originally presented the Sunday Supplement for three hours on a Sunday morning from 1990 to 2000. Changing circumstances meant that I had to give up presenting a weekly show but was still able to continue my involvement as a committee member and help out with fundraising and other activities.
However, due to subsequent changes in my work, I am now in the happy position of being able to present a two hour show on Thursday mornings from 10:00 am. I have always been very interested in musical shows and films so I feature tracks from these each week together with some comedy and my weekly brain teaser. I call the show the Thursday Brunch and the aim is to fill the gap between breakfast and lunch.
Peter and Chris Hughes interview Dave Heggie
We have Dave Heggie to thank for starting Hereford Hospital Radio. While a patient at the hospital during the early 1970’s and seeing the old tube headphones on the wall but nothing coming out of them, he decided to push to get Hereford’s own hospital radio station.
