Ipswich radio celebrated at Hospital 40th

Suffolk’s oldest radio station, Hospital Radio Ipswich, is marking its 40th anniversary with a special event later this week.

Local broadcasters from BBC Radio Suffolk, Town 102 and the former SGR and Radio Orwell will join the party which organisers say is to celebrate all radio in the area.

Hospital Radio Ipswich started life at the Anglesea Road Hospital in 1971, moving later to its current base at Heath Road Hospital. The volunteer members broadcast a variety of programmes every day of the week to the patients and staff via the bedside Hospedia units and also online.

Over the years a number of members of HRI have gone on to professional radio careers, including Radio Suffolk’s Stephen Foster and Mark Murphy, Jonathan Murphy at Dream 100 and Patrick Eade of Radio Orwell and BFBS.

The 40th anniversary charity evening’s being held this Friday (7 October) with a number of local radio people from Suffolk expected to attend. Organisers say anyone interested in radio in the area is welcome to attend the ticket-only event, which is raising money for Hospital Radio Ipswich as well as a number of other charities.
