11059901_886882038055101_7781288156233546221_oHere at Hereford Hospital Radio, we have most evenings during the week covered, as well as a number of shows throughout daytime.

Mondays are finished with Pete Trigg, and Ian Bailey on Tuesdays, while the likes of Oscar La-Gambina, Andy Williams and Seb Pontin keep you entertained throughout the rest of the week’s nights, and Peter Orme and Phyllis Taylor providing daytime coverage for you.

We now have more presenting opportunities available, whether you  want to a 7-9 breakfast show early on Tuesday mornings, a 2-4 afternoon show on Fridays or a 7-9 week closer on Sunday evenings.  You can do whatever you like, plan whatever you like, and play  whatever you like.

The one thing you need? The desire to do the best show possible and keep everyone happy!

If you have a few hours to spare in the late morning, midday or early afternoon on weekdays or weekends, or know someone who does, and you would like to present your own radio show, then let us know!

You will have full control of the professional system once we train you up with the help of our expert training staff, and you will have free reign over your music choices and show features.

A themed show is possible, for example themed music, from jazz to disco, or themed show content, such as TV and Film reviews or a radio gameshow, or anything else that takes your fancy.

We have a very large and varied collection of music on our computer system that ranges from the 1960s to the present day and is updated regularly, while you can use YouTube or connect your phone or laptop and play any songs you have downloaded that aren’t on the system.

We are always on the look out11204899_10203271566224905_4886112175201752018_n for new volunteers to join the station, and with our former  members going on to be newspaper editors and presenters on BBC Radio Hereford &  Worcester and appear on the Greg James show on BBC Radio 1, this is a great opportunity!

Even if presenting isn’t your thing, we have plenty of opportunities available in our  backroom staff, and everyone can take part in the outside broadcasts we put on at places  such as the annual Ledbury Carnival.

We have a hard-working and friendly group of people who all give up their time for free to help our patients recover in Hereford’s County Hospital, and there is no better feeling than receiving feedback from someone in the ward thanking you for playing their request and saying it has aided them in their recovery.

Also, if you want to pursue a career in the media, Hospital Radio is the ideal place to start, with the likes of Scott Mills, Chris Moyles and Greg James all beginning their careers at hospital radio stations.

Everyone’s work and effort never goes unnoticed, so what are you waiting for? Join our team today!

If you’re interested, then please e-mail info@hhr.org.uk for more information or follow the instructions on our Join Us page, or call us on 01432 233 033.

Despite the ever-changing rain and cloud, we still had fun and hope you did too! Check out the HHR @HerefordHRadio Twitter to find out more about the day’s activities.

A thank you goes to the HHR members who turned up, too, namely Chris, Peter, Sarah, Roger, Phyllis, Andy and Oscar.

Here’s to next year!

Phyllis Taylor

Hi there, my name’s Phyllis Taylor.

I present every Thursday from 2-5, (although usually I’m joined by Seb!), where I play a mixture of everything from old, slow and relaxing songs to the recent chart topping tracks, as well as, of course, all of your requests.

I originally began my time at Hereford Hospital Radio as a non-broadcasting member, but Pete Trigg then showed me round the studios and it all kicked off from there.

I am an animal lover and am also a motorbike fanatic, and I love watching the Isle of Man TT races. I also enjoy baking and jam making, and regularly bring in cakes for everyone when we all meet up!
