I first joined Harrogate Hospital Radio in 1980 at the tender age of 20, the person responsible for me joining was Ian Wighton, Ian and I used to work at the same firm in Knaresborough, Ian used to go about wearing his Hospital Radio t-shirt this intrigued me so I asked him what Hospital Radio was, he told me the work they do, this sounded like the kind of thing I could do so I was given a few contact phone numbers, phoned the then chairman and the rest as they say is history.

During the intervening 29 years I have seen HHR go from strength to strength, I have held the the posts of Technical Operator, Presenter, Studio Manager, and Programme Controller.

At the moment I Present the Tuesday Evening request show from 8pm and the Sunday Supplement from 2pm – 4pm I also present ROCK ON SATURDAY  Saturday evenings at 8pm.

My taste in music has due to doing Hospital Radio broadened over the years from Deep Purple, Led Zeppelin, Status Quo, to almost anything including some Classical music and Jazz.


Harrogate Hospital Radio is 100 percent volunteer led and we are always on the lookout for individuals to join our talented team of volunteers!
