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. 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.

Obituary - Tommy Callagher 2nd October 2021

It is with a deep sadness and a profoundly heavy heart that I have to inform you that Tommy Callagher has sadly passed away after a short illness.

Tommy was the face of Radio Broadgreen to everyone within the hospital it self throughout his time with us. He was the life and soul of our request show and helped fundraise thousands of pounds for the station as well as the British Heart Foundation.

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

The funeral service will take place on Monday 18th October. We shall be broadcasting one of Tommy’s last shows on this day from 2pm to commemorate the life of Tommy Callagher.

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.

Our tribute, “Alan Myers Remembered” is available to hear via our archive Playback Service.
