FM launch and birthday celebration

Post written by:

Double celebrations were in order as not only did we celebrating 45 years of Torbay Hospital Radio in February, but we also launched FM.

That’s right, not only can you listen to us via the website and Alexa, but those of you working or staying in Torbay Hospital can now tune in via 95.9 FM.

This is a great milestone as the last few years with the pandemic and the retirement of the bedside systems made it a lot harder for us to reach our core listeners – the patients and staff of Torbay Hospital. Particularly those who are elderly or don’t have access to smart devices. Our next goal is to get mini radios to share with wards so everyone has the chance to tune in. If you like to support us with fundraising for those, please head to our donation page.

The FM launched on 19th February 2022

To celebrate the launch and our 45th birthday, we had a full schedule of shows which started with Jordan from 9 am.

Thanks to everyone who came along to Shiphay and Kingskerswell Co-Op stores! The Co-Op has been a great support for Torbay Hospital Radio.

At the moment, if you’re a Co-Op member and shop at either the Shiphay, Roundhall, Chelston or Kingskerwell stores and choose us as your chosen charity, we’ll get a donation too.

Tune in via 95.9 FM and send in your requests and dedications if you are in the hospital. And those further afield, make sure to tune in via the website or Alexa.

We’d love to play the songs that make you feel good, as well as share your celebrations too.
