As the dedicated radio station
for Eastbourne's District General Hospital, we try to play as
many requests as possible for our listeners, and are not limited
to a certain 'playlist' that we cannot stray from, as happens
at commercial radio stations.
Each weekday evening, just after 7pm, and at various times across
the weekend, we open up the Radio DGH Jukebox and play a selection
of requests, either collected around the wards, or emailed / telephoned
Your request could be:
- A single record to be played
on the programme. Give us the artist and title and we'll do
our best to play it. You may suggest an alternative in case
we can't find it
- A song from your favourite artist
- try a lucky dip and we can pick a track for you or,
- A message to be read out on
Remember, you can request a song
either if you are in hospital, or if you have a relative, friend
or family member in hospital. In some areas, we also have speakers
broadcasting us away from the Hospedia units, so you could even
find out some of the staff's favourite tunes for their enjoyment
Please remember to give us your details, as well as the name and
ward of the patient the request is for, and obviosuly the song
you would like!
You can get in touch with us using
the following methods:
- If you are in the DGH, simply
pick up the phone on the Hospedia unit and press the blue button
at the bottom of the keypad. This comes directly to us, and
is completely free of charge!
- If you are in the DGH, but away
from a Hospedia unit, we can be called on an internal hospital
telephone (please ask staff permisison before use!) on either
extension 5748 or 4170.
- If you are on your mobile phone,
or outside the hospital complex, we can be called on (01323)
435748. This is a local rate number, so may even be free if
you have inclusive minutes.
