Hanging on the telephone

Discussion in 'General Discussion' started by Louey, Sep 5, 2019.

  1. Tonight at 7pm, it is Hospital Radio time!

    Tonight's theme, along with the requests, is telephones - on this day in 1959 the first trunk call was made from a phone box in the UK (it meant you could direct dial the number).
    Plenty of songs out there to match the theme


    Tune in at bhbn.net or shout at your smart speaker "Play Birmingham Hospital Radio".
