Choice Celebrates NHS 70

By | 24/07/2018

Choice Radio joined in the celebrations for the NHS reaching its 70th birthday on July 5th 2018, by providing live music in the foyer of the Worcestershire Royal on Saturday July 7th and Wednesday July 11th.
A group of Choice volunteers dispensed free copies of the station’s SMILE Magazine, ‘Take it Easy’; solicited requests from patients, visitors, RVS volunteers, and staff; and, played those requests live on air via the online service that the station now provides.

L to R: John Boardman, Tony & Barbara Deakin, Pete Phillips, and Roger Bartlett.

Over the two sessions, occupying a total of 6 hours, more than 20 requests for a wide range of music were played by presenters David Bower, Roger Bartlett and John Boardman, to the satisfaction of requesters and the enjoyment of patients throughout the hospital.


The fabulous David Bower playing requests.

Our sincere thanks go to Becky Bourne, Head of Communications, for facilitating this operation, and to senior communications officer Pete Orton for the photographs.
If you have an interest in becoming a volunteer at Choice Radio, and there is a wide variety of opportunities to serve in addition to presenting live shows, then do please visit the ‘Join Us’ section of our website.

Onwards to NHS 100!
