Music

As one of the oldest hospital radio stations in the country, we have a comprehensive collection of music dating back to the 1950s.

You could hear Glenn Miller in the same programme as T-Rex and Kylie Minogue. It wouldn't be unusual for The Beatles to be played after Huey Lewis and the News, or Bruno Mars after Elton John. Many programmes feature a similar mix of mainstream music.

Our specialist music strand, Radio Clatterbridge Presents, features country, folk and classical and our request shows are dictated by our listeners.
