Request Time

Request Time broadcasts three times per week on Radio Horton on Monday’s, Wednesday’s from 19:00-20:00 and Friday’s from 17:00-18:30 Our dedicated ward visitors come and visit you, the patients and your friends and families, and take down the requests that you want to listen to in hospital. The requests are later played on our request programme.

Why not Request a song on behalf of a friend or relative who may be staying in hospital, or is perhaps listening online at home feeling under the weather? Simply complete the form below.

Meet your Requests Team

Once our Ward Visitors have circled the wards, they return to the studio and collate the tracks and information needed for our Request Time presenters and ensure that these are played at appropriate times, and where necessary, with a message or dedication.
