RICHARD SMITH – PRESENTER

“Hello there, Richard Smith here from The A to Z of Pop and Call Me Number One.

I first started out in Hospital Radio in Nottingham over 35 years ago (blimey, that’s gold watch territory), thinking I was going to be the next big thing. I soon realised that I wasn’t so set about helping the station in any way I could, going around the wards, meeting and working with loads of interesting and entertaining people, fundraising etc etc.

I then moved on to become Station Manager at Radio Robin in Ilkeston, Derbyshire, where we started a station from absolutely nothing and had great fun doing it too.

Moving up to Lancashire and planning to get back into Hospital Radio when I suffered an accident in 2003 which reduced my mobility somewhat, however, with all that new found spare time on my hands I felt obliged to do something useful with it, and The A to Z of Pop concept was born.

All these years later and my shows are syndicated to more than 100 Hospital, Community and Internet-based stations in the UK, Ireland and even Australia!

And you can find out what all the fuss is about by joining me every week here on Coventry Hospital Radio, for The A to Z of Pop and Call Me Number One.

I’ll see you later, ta-ra”
