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.

Hereford Hospital Radio at Trinity’s 50th

Hereford Hospital Radio live at Trinity Fete (50 Anniversary).

On Saturday June 27 2015, the Hereford Hospital Radio team visited the Trinity School Fete and were live from their 50th anniversary.

Peter Orme opened the fete at 1:00 pm where we had loads of people coming along, Ben Coleman operating the DJ decks, along with Andy Williams and Seb Pontin who also helped out.

Thank you to everyone from the station who came down to give us a hand, as well as to all the visitors who came along and also to Trinity themselves who allowed us to visit.

We hope that everyone had a good time!

Hereford Hospital Radio having fun in Belmont

On Saturday June 20 2015, the Hereford Hospital Radio team presented live at the Belmont Fun Day in Northolme.

We were all in a caravan and set everything up for 2:00 pm where Chris Hughes And Ian Bailey opened the fete and we had the team running the shop and Pete Trigg on the decks.

We had over 100 visitors during the day, so thank you to everyone who was able to come down to the event and help out, and also thank you to everyone who donated to us.

We hope you had as great a time as we did!

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!

Andy Williams

Andy Williams is one of our longest serving members, having joined the station in the 1980s.

I joined Hereford Hospital Radio in 1984 after leaving the Royal Air Force after six years in service. The shows I have done in the past are the Langford House Request Show on a Saturday morning and a children’s show on a Sunday afternoon, while my current show is on a Thursday night from 7:00 pm until 9:00 pm which is a request show. Things I also like doing are going around the wards meeting people from all walks of life and also meeting people when we go out fundraising. This is the best part of being a member of Hereford Hospital Radio.

Other things I have done for Hereford Hospital Radio include being on the committee as the Station Manager and the Personnel Manager.

My current interests outside of Hospital Radio include being on the manager committee of the Herefordshire Junior Football League.

Thanks,
Andy.

BBC Hereford & Worcester comes live from HHR

Andrew Easton and BBC Hereford & Worcester live from our studios

BBC Hereford & Worcester presenter, Andrew Easton, came back to his roots and broadcast a very special Easter Bank Holiday show from our studios.

Andrew has probably traveled the furthest out of all the BBC Hereford and Worcester presenters team to be with you as he hails from down under – Christchurch, New Zealand in fact!

He arrived in the UK in 1993 and has always had a passionate interest in radio and joined the HHR team which helped him get a foot through the door at BBC Hereford & Worcester in the early 2000’s when Andrew started doing all the other things that no-one else wanted to do.

In April 2011 he came back to where his radio career started, and thanks to the support of the BBC Hereford & Worcester team, did his show live from our studios.

Hereford Hospital Radio on BBC Radio 1

 

The Weekend starts here with Olle Grove – Except here is BBC Radio 1.

Former Friday night presenter Olle Grove represented Hereford Hospital Radio and broadcasted to the whole nation thanks to Greg  James and Feet up Friday on BBC Radio 1.

Olle Tells the HHR website, “I applied for Greg James’ Feet Up Friday show and thanks to Gary Pounder, who works on the show, (and also happens to attend the University of Westminster and doing the same course as me but 2 years above) myself and 3 others on my course were asked to come to the Radio 1 studios to be in the audience! After a lengthy wait and various meet and greets with the producers of the show, we were shown through to the Live Lounge, which happens to be a slightly unmagical control room,where we got to see Trevor Nelson on his 1Xtra show. Just after 1pm we were shown through to the studio where we met Greg James and shared some stories with him. After our introduction on air we stood and sat at the back of the studio and watched everything happen (for a radio geek like myself, it was absolute heaven!). I then got to talking with Greg off air about his background and how he got into radio, he had his own Hospital Radio show when he was teenager and that’s when I got onto the subject of Hereford Hospital Radio which he then mentioned on air! It was so nice to A) have some more air time and B) raise a little awareness worldwide of our radio station. At the end of the show, they collate the whole audiences shout outs for one person to read, now after our chat about my show on a Friday night, Greg spoke the most amazing words I’ve ever heard in my life, “Olle, you’re going to present on Radio 1, you sit in my chair, have my headphones and I’ll produce you.” I cannot describe how excited I was! I did the shout outs and to round the whole experience off, he let me take us out of the show by doing my normal opening link on HHR! We went for a tour of Radio 1 after the show which was extremely interesting and we got to meet the big boss, all of the production teams and all of newsbeat. It was a truly incredible day and one I wont be likely to forget in a very long time.”
