Radio Harrow is proud to announce that Thursday, 19th April is our third birthday.
As a charity aimed at producing health and wellbeing content which is broadcast to the community, Radio Harrow have achieved a lot, following the merger of Radio Northwick Park with Harrow Community Radio.
We’ve been nominated for around ten awards at the Hospital Broadcasting Association (HBA) awards ceremony, and won one. We’ve had 3,500 song requests from patients within Northwick Park Hospital, around 11,000 web listeners per year, and 270 hours of content has been streamed from our Mixcloud Page. Many of our seventy-five volunteers are enthused by the station’s new image, producing topical content covering a range of topics such as health and wellbeing, patient stories and dedications on our new weekly team shows, The Saturday Brunch and Harrow Today.
The charity also has much to boast about going forward; aside from hosting another Brains of the Borough Quiz, we’ll be broadcasting live from the Pinner Wheelbarrow Race on St George’s Day in three days time. We’re also frequently involved in numerous community events and would love to get stuck in with your next event whenever you would like.
On Thursday, tune in from 8pm to 10pm for a two hour special show, in which we recall our best highlights, from our first summer tour to our Best Weekend Ever, where we were out and about all over Harrow. We also review our awareness-raising for World Tuberculosis (TB) Day and discuss mental health and wellbeing in Mental Health Awareness Week.
So in summary: keep listening to Radio Harrow, whether it be live via the website (www.radioharrow.org), via our Listen Again service, keep an eye out. And keep your eyes focussed on how we grow and evolve going forward.
