HRS 50th Anniversary Marathon Broadcast

Yes, on 17 January 2022, Hospital Radio Stafford reaches a milestone Anniversary. It will be 50 years since it’s inaugural broadcast to hospital patients in Staffordshire on 17 January 1972.

To mark this occasion, several Presenters will be performing a Marathon 50 hour  continuous ‘live’ broadcast starting at 9am on Saturday 15 January and ending at 11am on Monday 17 January.

A continuous broadcast of this nature has not been attempted before so don’t forget to listen out for your favourite HRS Voices and support this huge effort by donating on our GoFundMe page

All monies raised will go towards our next big project – a refurbishment of The Armand Chatfield Studio.

Good luck to all concerned.

Talking of Art, he will present his original Jazz Show from 1972 on Tuesday 18 January 2022 in recognition of both the Radio Station’s 50th Anniversary and his personal Anniversary of 50 years of broadcasting.  Well done Art !
