Happy Birthday Radio Broadgreen

Wednesday October 19th 1983 saw the official launch of Radio Broadgreen with volunteers from Radio Newsham (which started in 1975).

The original studios were opened by the Lord Lieutenant of Merseyside Mr. K E Stoddart with LHBS Chairman Les Bather and Broadgreen hospital administration in attendance.

We would like to take this opportunity to thank all those past & present who have supported Radio Broadgreen for the past 35 years.

COVID-19 - February 2021 update

Due to the Coronavirus COVID-19 pandemic, this charity is unable to open applications for membership at the present time. Due to new lockdown restrictions, some live shows have been suspended until further notice.

Although we are desperately looking for more members to join LHBS, the NHS Trust application process is set in such a way it is very difficult to get any applications conducted with the present COVID19 restrictions.

Once restrictions have been relaxed, we shall be advertising volunteer posts on our vacancies page.

Obituary - Dave Culshaw 1951-2021

It is with a deep sadness and a profoundly heavy heart that we inform you that Dave Culshaw has sadly passed away.

Dave joined LHBS/Radio Broadgreen in 1988 and was an integral part of Radio Broadgreen for over 30 years spending many hours on his Sunday afternoon show entertaining the patients. He was also a valued member of the LHBS committee helping to run the station whilst keeping the finances in check with his 2 spells as Hon. Treasurer.

Dave will be sorely missed by everyone at LHBS/Radio Broadgreen and we send out our deepest sympathies to all of his family and friends at this exceptionally sad time.
