Last weeks’ request show was a random mix of requests, who wants to be a millionaire and Ben’s emotive speech for the HBA Awards. 

Take a look; let us know what you think?

A New-Bee

After last week’s busy induction, each night has the pleasure to welcome new volunteers!

Wednesday Night can proudly introduce….Hugo Denby-Mann, 21, from Ealing. Hugo, graduated at Oxford Brookes University in Media Technology and has always had a keen passion in radio. Currently working as a TV Broadcast Engineerer, he said: “I found Radio Northwick Park on the internet and after researching it looked like the biggest and best.” 

After his debut on the hospital wards Hugo felt the radio has a major role in the patients’ time in hospital. He said: “The relationship with the patients establishes a personal connection which is a warming thought when you’re in hospital.” 

With his goal “to be happy and help people”, Hugo will fit into the Radio Northwick Park crew perfectly. 

Radio-ish facts about Hugo:
Favourite song: Baz Lerhman: Sunscreen
Worst song: Rihanna: Umbrella (because she made it rain all summer)

Outside broadcast

A date for your diary:

Saturday 5th April

St Ann‘s Shopping Centre in Harrow.

RNP will be between Boots and Topshop for the day playing lots of music, raising money and overall having a good time.

Come on down!


Radio Northwick Park has launched a fundraising campaign to refurbish its offices.

We are holding a number of events in the coming months, including an outside broadcast from the centre of Harrow in April.

We are raising money to refurbish the studios, which are located in the basement of the hospital. These studios haven’t been changed since 1971 so and freshen up it what it needs.

Adrian Rammelt, who has been with the station for ten years, said: “The walls and ceilings in here have seen better days.

“We have never really had the resources to change things, but we are hoping to raise enough money to really improve the whole station.”

Are you a person, willing to try new things and full of enthusiasm?

Radio Northwick Park is always looking for new volunteers to join the team. If you want more information about the station and are interested in joining please click here.

The Request Show

The Request Show is produced entirely for the patients, with their choice of music.


Volunteers spend up to an hour talking to patients and then create a lively playlist for the show which begins at 9pm.


Yesterdays’ Request Show was an interesting mix of fun and games, and lot of dedications.


Visiting a number of wards some of the requested songs were Elton John and Cliff Richard. 60 minutes of madness was engineered by Ben, and presented by Julie, David and Sara.


With each night having their own style and theme, Wednesday nigh is known for fun, fun and more fun. We play games such as Guess the Theme Tune, Who Want to be a Millionaire and 21 Questions.

However, from an earlier post you can tell the regular outline was changed this week for The Big Mid Week Quiz. Whether this quiz will return is still being debated. Nevertheless, and most importantly we played all the requests and also had a theatre review from Sara.
