Jim Simpson

Jim first became involved with hospital radio as a teenager in Folkestone, the town of his birth and formative years where a group of enthusiasts decided to visit patients in the town's Royal Victoria Hospital and collect record requests from them.

They put together a request programme using a reel to reel tape recorder which he would play through the hospital's radio system a day or so later.

He later worked in Canterbury where he continued with hospital broadcasting, ultimately taking on the role of Station Manager at Radio KCH which was then the hospital radio in the Kent and Canterbury Hospital.

After moving to Aberdeen, Jim renewed his interest in Hospital Radio and joined his local station to present the Friday evening request show and a Saturday early evening programme.

He has been awarded a number of commendations as well as bronze and silver awards in the Specialist Music category at the Hospital Broadcasting Association's National Awards as well as a number of commendations in the Male Presenter of the Year category.
