NHR provides much needed entertainment to patients staying in the major hospitals of Nottingham. As well as operating a 24/7 broadcast radio service, NHR volunteers can often been seen on the wards interacting with patients.

Best of British Bank Holiday

You can probably guess what we're going to be doing on the 25th August purely on the name. The Best of British Bank Holiday will be a day of music purely from British artists.

 

We'll be going as far back as the 60s with the Beatles and Rolling Stones and running all the way up to the modern classics of the last few years.

 

While we'll be the first to admit we're probably stretching the defenition of "British" with some songs and artists, it's certainly something a bit different for a rainy bank holiday Monday.

Going for Bronze?

It's awards season again for Hospital Radio in the UK. However, it turns out that NHR's walked away with a trophy for the second year in a row.

 

This time, it's a Bronze for Station Promotion. Which happens to be one of the trophies we won last year as well.

It's All Gone to the Dogs

Well, it's not quite all gone to the dogs. But you can by supporting NHR in making patients' stays in hospital more enjoyable and enjoying a night of dog racing at the same time!

On the 7th of February, Colwick Greyhound Stadium will be hosting a charity night of racing starting at 7:15 and running through to about 10:15. It's usually ten to twelve races over a night.

So You Win Again (Hopefully)

Admittedly, quoting the lyrics of Hot Chocolate might not be the coolest thing in the world to do. However, we do want to blow our own trumpet a bit. We've only gone and got shortlisted in the HBA Hospital Radio Awards 2014 for the second year in a row.

 

We've been sortlisted in the Best Station Promotion (which we got Bronze in last year), Best Male Presenter (Rajiv's still not returned from orbit since the shortlist was announced) and Station of the Year.

 

Run for Home!

It's nothing to do with Lindisfarne other than we play their song regularly on NHR. It actually turns out that we've got a team running in the IKANO Robin Hood Half Marathon. The twist... they're taking a stretcher and a not so willing patient with them.

 

Why not track the team online and in real time here or support the team by donating. You can do that by texting BEDS13 £(ammount) to 70070 or using PayPal on the left hand side of this page.

Oh, I Do Like to be Beside the Riverside?!?

If I said music, water and the riverside, what would come to mind? Probably a nice trip up a canal with some nice ditties playing the background.

 

Well, we attempted to recreate that idilic image by playing some of the finest music we could get our mits on down at the Riverside festival this past weekend. Why not check out the pictures we took from the banks of the mighty river Trent.

Planes, Trains and Automobiles

Well, we might not have had the first two but we certainly saw a lot of classic vehicles at Autokarna 2013. And what's more, it didn't once.

 

However, be also brought back more than memories. Why not check out the pictures or watch the video below:

 

Autokarna

What we know about classic cars could probably be written on the back of a postage stamp with a paintbrush. However, we do know that Autokarna is on the 2nd June and we'll be down there.

Going for Gold

We're currently practicing running along a grey and wet beach to the Chariots of Fire music. Well, we would be if there was a beach in Nottingham that lasted more than one week and wasn't labelled "Sand Pit".

 

However, we are taking part in the Robin Hood Half Marathon rasing money for NHR. Seriously, hospital radio is a great way of making that long stay in hospital a bit more bareable and provides a personal, approachable service by making visits to the wards. Any currency you could throw our way would be much appreciated.

 

Shock and Awe

We are literally in shock at the moment and currently checking all our old lottery tickets after finding out that we've won some awards at the HBA National Hospital Radio Awards. The last time we managed that one, John Major was in power!

 

The first of our awards goes to the very talented team behind Tuesday's Your Choice request show. They won Silver for Show with Multiple Presenters. An award that was only just launched this year. Why not check it out below:
