Welcome to Radio General
Radio General - Warrington Hospital Radio is a registered charity and provides a local broadcasting service to the patients in Warrington Hospital.
The Record Request Service was started by the Warrington Council of Youth with the first broadcast being made on 7th November 1957. The Rugby League commentaries go back even further, with the first match commentary taking place on 28th February 1953.
Having worked side by side for many years, the Warrington Rugby Commentators Association and the Warrington Council of Youth’s Record Request Service amalgamated in 1976 to form the present charity.
Radio General is run entirely by volunteers and is funded by donations from the public, the generosity of local business, together with the fund-raising activities of its members.
Radio General broadcasts 2 services from The Keith Inman Studios located in the main entrance, 24 hours a day throughout the year, to the patients in the Warrington Hospital.
