Steve Mullane (Head of Presentation)


I have been a member of SOUTHAMPTON HOSPITAL RADIO since 1986 and am presently the Stations Head of Presentation, having previously been the Associations Chairman. 

In my years as a presenter, operator and Executive member I have been lucky enough to meet some of the best people, Engineers, Librarians, Transmission Controllers, Executive and Regular members without whom, I wouldn't be where I am and the station wouldn't be still broadcasting. 

All of us give of our effort for free, simply, to entertain 'The Patients'. 

So if you are considering joining us, and please do, simply ring any evening on 023 80, 78-51-51, but be warned, SOUTHAMPTON HOSPITAL RADIO can easily become an addiction, if you stay more that six months you will probably be a member for LIFE! 

We have, at present, eighteen members who have been with us for THIRTY years or more. I haven't reached those 'dizzy heights' yet but I am, quietly, closing in on the 'gang'. If you have the talent, staying power or just vast amounts of money we would be delighted to see you.

Jonathan Newell (Head of Programmes)


Its exciting times at Southampton Hospital Radio with the imminent implementation of a new intuitive computer based playout system and other technology that will allow us to get to more patients in the hospitals as well as keeping staff, volunteers, friends and relatives in touch with the patients and hospital Community.

We are proud to broadcast music shows for all tastes and in all genres, as well as a variety of speech shows along with outside broadcasts including Football from St. Mary's, Cricket from the Ageas Bowl and outside broadcast from around the city.

Our nightly flagship show REQUESTLINE, which we broadcast every night between 20:30 and 21:30, brings music selected by patients, relatives and friends direct to the patients bedside. Look out for our hospital visitors or ring us on 023 8078 5151, alternatively use the Request form on the website.
