Back for Series 27
It may be the start of our new series, but we've hardly been off the air. Our summer special recorded at Alton's PArty in the Park and our award-nominated It Started with Swap Shop filling our break from live shows fro the last two weekends.
We're back live this weekend though with all our regular fatures, carrying on where the last series left off really. Series 26 had more requests, and more phone calls than we have ever had – which is what hospital radio is all about. We even had to extend the show on a number of occasions due to the number of requests and phone calls!
The new run will start with lots of running – as Memory Makers goes back to the years of previous World Athletics Championships. We hope to have more guests from Blue Peter on over the next year as that show gets ready to celebrate 60 years on the air, and of course every week we will give away a Sainsbury's Goody bag in our week prize draw that will celebrate its fifth anniversary in October.
We'll also be followed once a month by Residents' Requests, a feature of HRB's programme schedule that started last year and which has contributed hundreds of requests during that time from the residents of Ashley House and Basingfield Court Care homes.
And at some point very soon, HRB itself will play its 100,000th request. Will it be on a Sunday afternoon? You never know, but someone will get a special surprise whenever it might be.
Join us every Sunday for the next 12 months live from 1.30pm.
