Our journey with Hospital Radio Glamorgan has blossomed over the last few years. We took our first steps together in 2020 and since then, together we’ve helped raise awareness of the importance of music in supporting and connecting with patients who are at home or on hospital wards. So much so, we’re proud to be sponsors of Wednesday and Saturday evenings
Radio Glamorgan began in 1967 at the Cardiff Royal Infirmary (CRI). A few years later, they then moved to their current home at the University Hospital of Wales and for a few decades their studios were housed within the basement. However, after extensive fundraising, Radio Glamorgan moved to where you can see them now on the main thoroughfare (Just up from the main UHW concourse ) in 1999.
Radio Glamorgan - how to listen
Radio Glamorgan is a station manned entirely by volunteers overseen by a board of trustees that are voted in and ratified by all at an Annual General Meeting held during the first quarter of each year. In 2019, they renamed their studio after John Wilce, a dedicated volunteer at the station for 15 years, who died after a short illness a year before.
You don’t have to be in hospital to listen. You can tune in by asking your smart-speaker to “Play Hospital Radio Glamorgan”, by downloading their app for your mobile or tablet or going to their website and hitting play!
Listen online, on mobile and on smart-speakers too.
Radio Glamorgan are also a registered charity (504534).
When possible, they fund-raise by taking part in bucket collections at supermarkets across the Cardiff and Vale of Glamorgan area alongside organising events that everyone can attend.
