Radio City celebrates 40 years

Radio City, one of the UK’s longest-running hospital radio stations is celebrating 40 years of continuous broadcasting to Singleton hospital in Swansea.

The celebrations, on March 29th, were marked by a special anniversary event to commemorate the date, with the President and founder, Radio Caroline’s Clive Thomas, presenting the anniversary broadcast.

Prior to the broadcast, a party, attended by civic dignitaries and guests including the Minister for Health and Social Care, Edwina Hart, BBC Wales broadcaster and Patron, Roy Noble and past and present members of the station, was held in the hospital.

Guests were given a presentation on the history of Radio City, along with its future plans, which involve broadcasting via a Low Power AM radio licence, recently granted by Ofcom.

Mrs. Hart, the keynote speaker at the event, highlighted and praised the work of volunteers, including those that ran Radio City. She added that for some people in hospital, there may not be many family members or friends to visit them.
