An article in The Guardian about hospital radio, prompted Alex to make this video, to show what hospital radio is all about ...
To Alex, hospital radio is much more than an old man in a room, with dusty blue carpets and a microphone, spinning 78s.
In this film Alex shows just how far removed the reality of hospital radio is from what people think it is, and what it means to the people who work for it and listen to it.
And it's more than just entertainment or a hobby according to Alex, it gives those who run it the chance perfect their skills and learn what radio is really about - all the things that can't be taught on a college course.
