Programmes coming up ..

  • Dom Chambers' Life Stories

    8:00pm - 9:00pm

    Dom says: "The wellbeing of people and supporting those with less opportunity are the key drivers for all my work. We live in times that elevate the necessity of this approach. Care Radio is born of these times".

  • Peter Milburn's Sentimental Journey

    9:00pm - 11:00pm

    For anyone who enjoys a trip down memory lane listening to everyone from Ella Fitzgerald to David Whitfield, Alma Cogan to Dickie Valentine, or Connie Francis to Tony Bennett.

  • Late Night Love Songs

    11:00pm - 1:00am

    Two hours of perfect late night music from across the years, helping you to unwind with some "me" time.

  • Alex Cann

    1:00am - 4:00am

    Alex says "I have huge admiration for the care sector, which dates back to my own stint in Sheffield Children's Hospital in 1991 having a leg lengthening operation. The nurses were just fantastic, and I feel this is my opportunity to give something back to a profession that has faced unprecedented challenges over the last few years."

  • Matt Rosser

    4:00am - 7:00am

    Matt says: "people who care for us - in hospitals, homes, wherever care is needed - are people we are lucky to have. If we didn’t acknowledge it before, we certainly do now and we mustn’t stop".

  • Paul Hutton

    7:00am - 10:00am

    Paul says: "It probably sounds a bit twee, but I genuinely am honoured to be giving something back to the amazing people, paid and unpaid, that selflessly help others every day".

  • Nick Meir

    10:00am - 1:00pm

    Nick says "Caring is so much more than delivering practical essentials. Just ‘being there’ provides a tonic of companionship which we all crave as human beings. And that is why Care Radio is so important. Knowing you can switch on and listen to a friendly voice at any time, day or night, really does make a difference to those involved in receiving or giving care"

  • Martin Emery

    1:00pm - 4:00pm

    Martin says: "when we think about it, we all probably know somebody - a friend, a colleague or family member - who provides care, either professionally or unpaid. Care Radio is for them."

  • Matt Rosser

    4:00pm - 7:00pm

    Matt says: "people who care for us - in hospitals, homes, wherever care is needed - are people we are lucky to have. If we didn’t acknowledge it before, we certainly do now and we mustn’t stop".
