Following in the footsteps of singers James Blunt and Chesney Hawkes, HRH The Prince of Wales has recorded a special programme to say thank you to volunteers of hospital, health and wellbeing radio stations for their work in keeping communities connected and patients entertained during the coronavirus pandemic.

The programme, Music & Memories with HRH The Prince of Wales, which will be broadcast across member stations of the Hospital Broadcasting Association (HBA) on Sunday 4th July 2021 features some of The Princes favourite tracks, from artists including The Three Degrees; Diana Ross; Barbara Streisand and Edith Piaf to name but a few.

In the programme, The Prince of Wales highlights the work volunteers from HBA members have done over the last year, explaining that the role of hospital radio has been even more important during these current times, providing an invaluable service to patients, staff and families and reminisces on key life memories where music plays a significant role.

His Royal Highness’s thanks was also extended to NHS Staff and volunteers across the country, with The Prince citing he has been “profoundly impressed by the dedication shown by NHS staff, marvelling time and time again at the sheer resilience and indomitable spirit shown by everyone throughout the pandemic”.

Grant McNaughton, Chairman of the association commented:

“The Hospital Broadcasting Association represents over 180 local radio stations delivering entertainment, information and health and wellbeing services to healthcare users across the UK, whether in hospital or the wider community. To express his gratitude to the army of dedicated hospital radio volunteers and their listeners, HRH The Prince of Wales, has offered to share his favourite music and his memories associated with each choice.  We are exceptionally grateful for HRH The Prince of Wales to recognise the dedication to volunteers across the UK who have continued to assist healthcare providers throughout these difficult times.   Local dedicated and focussed entertainment provided to hospital and healthcare patients has and remains an exceptionally important part of recovery and recuperation.  Sometimes unrecognised, raising the awareness of hospital, health and wellbeing radio as a key provider to the community is a challenge, but for our stations dedication and their services to be recognised by HRH is truly amazing and we are beyond grateful for his support.”

Ian Pinnell, HBA Communications Executive added:
“We’re grateful to The Prince of Wales for recording this special programme for our member stations. We’ve seen first hand the outstanding work our member stations and their volunteers have done during these extraordinary times and we’re sure listeners will enjoy this programme and its eclectic mix of music”
