Millside Hospital Radio

More recent history

Further developments and technical upgrades took place. Grants from the hospital Trust were obtained to enable new studio equipment to be commissioned. State-of-the-art digital recorders were brought into service for the first time. Frances Stein trying out the new equipment in studio two

A grant from the Nottingham Building Society enabled us to purchase a new computer system to help with the running of the station. Grants from Fidler & Pepper solicitors and K.C. Mobility Services Limited meant that we could purchase fund-raising goods and a new jingle package.

The whole studio complex was redecorated and secure CD cabinets were built and installed. The first web site was launched.

A portable minidisk recorder was purchased to enable on-location interviews to take place. The recordings could be edited electronically, a far cry from the early days of cutting and splicing audio tape!

Millside took delivery of a piece of equipment called an EncoDad. This enables Millside to have twenty-four hour programming for the hospital wards 365 days a year!

A new computer with touch-screen was bought, thanks for a grant bid. This was set up to run Millycart, an application produced in-house, enabling presenters to find and play a piece of music requested by a listener. Such a song can be found and ready to play within five seconds! Millycart is also used to play out jingles, trailers and other items.

The web site was properly established and listeners were able to find out more about the station. The station ditched the EncoDad and developed an in-house playout system.

At last! Millside was able to move out of it's original studios into a brand-new area comprising two studios and a large reception area. There was a lot involved in packing and moving all of our stuff and, if the truth be known, we still haven't unpacked completely!

We began experimenting with making our programmes available via the web site. This proved very successful and from now on, with the support of the Hospital Trust, we intend to extend this facility. We also took delivery of a new American style jingle package recorded for us in Dallas, Texas.


This year saw our twentieth birthday! We held a big party in the Street of the King's Mill hospital and friends old and new helped us celebrate


This year has seen a brand new set of programmes. New members have joined and we have more live shows than ever. All of our computing facilities have been upgraded and have added to the reliability of our broadcast facilities. 

 After exhaustive testing, we now broadcast our programmes online in super high-quality sound for friends and supporters of the station. We also have a Twitter and Facebook presence. 

In all, we are now on a par with professional broadcasters!
