Radio Calderdale is a registered charity and run entirely by volunteers. We are always on the lookout for new people to join our dedicated team.
Many of our volunteers can be seen regularly around the wards, chatting to patients, checking our output and taking requests and dedications.
Radio Calderdale is the hospital radio station for Halifax and has been a ‘Friend at the Bedside’ for over thirty years. We were founded in 1981 by Trevor Simpson and were originally based at the Halifax General Hospital, broadcasting also to the Royal Halifax Infirmary and Northowram Hospital. We now have our purpose built studios at, and broadcast to, the Calderdale Royal Hospital. We broadcast 24 hours a day on Channel 10 of patients’ bedside TV sets.
We provide a wide range of programmes, including Pop (from the 50’s to the present day), Country, Rock ’n’ Roll, Jazz, Comedy, Rock, Musicals, Brass Bands and several Request Shows each week.
