From May 21st 2023 ArroweSound Hospital Radio Celebrates 50 years of broadcasting!

ArroweSound Hospital Radio is Celebrating 50 years of Broadcasting this month!

We have been providing entertainment and aiding patient recovery since 1973. Under our original name of Radio Catherine from our studios at the old St. Catherine’s Hospital on Church Road in Birkenhead we provided a then, restricted service to patients and staff across the site and also to The Birkenhead General Hospital on Park Road North.

When Arrowe Park was opened in 1982, Radio Catherine began broadcasting via landline to the new site whilst studio space was sourced prior to relocation, before being relaunched as Arrowe Sound Hospital Radio to reflect our new surroundings and audience base.

2021 Was a big year for us, we moved to our new home in the Clatterbridge Health Park with our Sister Station “Radio Clatterbridge”
