Since 1957, Hospital Radio Reading (HRR) has been broadcasting to – and entertaining – the patients and staff at the Royal Berkshire Hospital in Reading. Our station is run entirely by volunteers, broadcasts 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, and provides a combination of live and pre-recorded shows which can be heard free of charge via the bedside entertainment system at patients’ bedsides, online via this website or on the TuneIn app.

Our purpose is to brighten up the day for patients and staff with cheerful chat and the best selection of music for all ages, together with specialist music programmes, comedy, Reading FC commentaries , short stories, and hourly news bulletins. Our full programme schedule can be found elsewhere on this website.

All of us from HRR would love to hear from patients, staff or even relatives of the patients who have specific music requests or dedications. Patients can contact us – free – on *800 from the telephone on the bedside entertainment system staff can call us on 8508 (internal) and anyone can phone in on 0118 322 8508. Requests can also be sent via this website and you will also find our pages on Facebook, Twitter and other social media.

Our station’s day to day running costs are raised by our volunteers through fundraising and donations. If you would like to help us by making a donation please contact us please contact us on 0118 322 8508.

We are a registered charity (Reading Hospital Broadcasting Service) and our charity number is 1196377
