In view of the current situation regarding Covid-19 at this time, we are unable to get to our studios to bring you live programmes but we are working hard remotely to keep our fantastic Music Selection and Pre-recorded shows varied and interesting for your entertainment 24 hours every day.

The backbone of Hospital Broadcasting is patients requests and dedications. However, currently it is not possible to visit the wards or handle telephone calls.  Paul Stanley is recording his Friday Evening Show each week at home and is asking for dedications or messages for your friends and loved ones you cannot be with at this time.

By, Alicia
ICU Nurse at Queen Elizabeth Hospital, Birmingham

We are called hero’s.

We are thanked by your claps

We are given gifts;

And we are thankful of that!


We are called hero’s

But us hero’s cry

When we’re struggling

with the pressures

And when our patients die


We are called hero’s,

But it doesn’t feel right,

To take a title of a hero

When you can’t sleep at night


We are called hero’s,

On the ITU frontline,

From the domestics to the consultants,

All of us shine

You are also the hero’s,

You have stacked up the shelves,

You have looked after

your neighbours,

And cared for yourselves


You are also the hero’s,

You have worked from your home

And followed the instruction

to isolate alone


You are all the hero’s,

You’ve gave us love

all the way through,

And I promise without your love,

Then we couldn’t do what we do!

Alicia’s poem can be heard on BHBN Radio from time to time and is accompanied by a Song that has been recorded by Julius Cowdrey call Frontline written with his brother Fabien and is available on Spotify, You Tube and other platforms with all proceeds going to the NHS Charities
