Obituary - Dave Culshaw 1951-2021

It is with a great 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.

Obituary - Alan Myers 10th November 2021

It is with great sadness that we have learned that Chairman of HRFN (Hospital Radios’ Football Network) that provided commentary of all Everton and Liverpool fixtures for Radio Broadgreen has died.

Alan Myers was a big Blues fan and it was a privilege to join the network in 1986 and provide commentary to the blind & partially sighted fans at Goodison Park as well as radio commentary for hospital patients via Radio Broadgreen.

Our sincere condolences to Alan’s family during this difficult time.
