The BIG Broadcast 2017
Over the May Bank Holiday weekend Radio Hillingdon will be joining forces with a national network of other Hospital Radio Stations around the UK.
We will be broadcasting from 6pm on Saturday, 29th April through to 6pm on Monday 1st May.
This marathon programme will be broadcast from the A to Z of POP studio in Lancashire, with Richard Smith, Ruth Stapleton, Oliver Stables, Jonathan Sawyer and Matthew Rolland.
Richard Smith here and welcome to The BIG Broadcast – our 7th effort to date (and they said it wouldn’t last), but once again, and thanks to some wonderful technology, and more importantly those who know how to use it, we’ll be trying our best to deliver a nationally networked show on Hospital Radio over the May Day Bank Holiday weekend in an attempt to entertain listeners all over the country.
I’ve been involved in Hospital Radio since the mid 1980s and in that time have held pretty much every role within a station. During this time I’ve picked up some useful experience and this is what gets put into the organisation behind The BIG Broadcast.
The emphasis on the show is to create a fun, party atmosphere aimed specifically at those patients, staff and listeners to all the stations that take part who are unlucky enough to be in hospital or recuperating over the Bank Holiday Weekend. So I really do hope that you can join us from 6pm on Saturday the 29th of April and if you need any more details at all, please feel free to get in touch at The Big Broadcast. This is the Full Schedule for the weekend, I’ll speak to you later, ta-ra!
