Hospital Radio Norwich has updated some of it jingles with the help of Alan Dedicoat (Voice of the balls & Strictly Come Dancing. Whilst at the Hospital Broadcasting Association's annual conference our chairman met Alan and asked if he could record some bits for us which he duly did and they have now been edited at our own studio in to a new selection of Jingles promoting our request show and general station identification making the station sound even better  

Due to the coronavirus our studio is unmanned at present and ward visiting is currently not allowed under to the current guidelines. Programmes are now being undertaken within our members homes and our phone number has been diverted to allow patients to call in and still get their favourite songs played by calling *800 from your Hospedia unit or 01603 454585

Also your family can tune in at home to share your requests as HRN is now online and phone in requests or fill out the online form for the patients

Also as the chaplains are unable to run the Sunday service in the hospital they, similarly are recording the service at home and forwarding it to HRN in time for the 10:30am broadcast
