Epsom Hospital Radio
Epsom Hospital Radio began broadcasting in October 1978, after two mobile DJs met in the same ward and formed the idea of starting a hospital station.
In March 2010, Epsom Hospital Radio started broadcasting 24 hours a day providing music, entertainment and information alongside its live output.
The station plays a variety of shows including movies and musicals and solid gold classics. Their music collection spans several decades from the pre-50's up to the present day, including classical, jazz, blues, rock and roll, soul and disco.
The station's volunteers also broadcast a variety of live shows throughout the week, including sports, local bands, as well as local events, news and of course at the heart of all hospital radio are the listener's requests. Watch out for the presenters when they are visiting the wards every day.
Within every show, Epsom Hospital Radio broadcasts hospital information - information about the services provided at Epsom Hospital by the trust and the many charities which support the NHS.
