Radio Tyneside was the first hospital radio station in Britain. It has been the starting place for many big names in broadcasting today and John is the Chairman of a bunch of people who do this for love.
They offer their services for the benefit of others. The station has won awards for their output, their dedication to those who have to spend time receiving care and even the The Queen has been impressed enough to shower some members of their staff with CBE’s and more.
“It’s good to give something back,” said John “And as I live within the community, it’s also fun to do.”
