As part of Local Radio Day, Hospital Radio Lynn joined forces with local commercial radio station KL.FM 96.7 for a special night of requests and dedications on 26th May 2017. 11 of the station's volunteers visited the KL.FM studios for one night only to broadcast the nightly Requests and Dedications Show live, not only to the patients of the Queen Elizabeth Hospital but to all of the KL.FM listeners in West Norfolk, Wisbech and Fakenham.
With the support of the wonderful staff at KL.FM as well as the hard work and dedication of their own volunteers back at the hospital, they were able to showcase the wonderful work that hospital radio stations do, as well as promote a hopefully long and fruitful relationship with KL.FM.
Secretary for Hospital Radio Lynn, Carrie Ingram-Gettins was one of the members on the KL.FM mic on Friday night. When asked about the experience she said 'it was an excellent opportunity for us to work alongside an established station like KL.FM and we are really grateful for that. It was a great night and we really enjoyed it, and feedback from the patients and listeners was very positive, and we have two new potential members out of it! I hope it is the first of many such collaborations.'
Hospital Radio Lynn wish to thank the staff at KL.FM for this wonderful and exciting opportunity.
