The New Year’s Eve BIG Broadcast #NYEBB17

Here we go again………

From midday on Sunday, December the 31st until midday on Monday January the 1st 2018, I’ll be producing another marathon programme relayed to your station via an internet stream from my home studio in Lancashire, along with my intrepid team of Ruth Stapleton, Oliver Stables, Jonathan Sawyer, Matthew Rolland and Ian Gornall.

Our 24 hour schedule is coming together nicely and includes contributions from around the UK’s Hospital Radio Stations as well as music from the Live Lounge at ‘BIG Broadcast towers’, the usual mixture of Pop, Country, TV, Film and Show tunes and of course all those requests and dedications from listeners all over the UK and Ireland.

And we’re already looking forward to being part of your New Years Eve celebrations from midday on the 31st of December as we’ll be back for 24 hours of fun and laughter, turning 2017 into 2018 in our own inimitable fashion!


We are really looking forward to our Live music set on New Years Eve afternoon which stars Jess McGlinchey,  a 19 year old singer based in Burnley, Lancashire who studied Musical Theatre at Manchester College and is now studying Music at Burnley College before going on to university and drama school; she also teaches musical theatre and has sung at various venues in the North West including The Burnley Mechanics Theatre, and Turf Moor at Burnley FC.

Musical theatre songs have always been a favourite for Jess but she will always have a heart for The Beatles, Amy Winehouse, Taylor Swift and Frankie Valli. She is extremely excited to be singing across the airwaves just for you this New Year’s Eve on The BIG Broadcast, it’s an hour not to be missed!
And you can find out more about Jess by following her on Facebook and Twitter!


So the question is……

Will you be getting involved?

Kaye Adams, Nadia Sawalha, Matt Allwright and Jackie Woodburne have, so why not join them and us?

You’ll be in great company……



Joining us is very simple and straightforward, so if you’re part of a Hospital Radio Station, then you will need to be able to connect your desk to the internet for the duration of The New Years Eve BIG Broadcast 2017.

But please don’t worry if you think this may be a problem as we have people on hand to help out with any technical issues that may arise – including those surrounding the NHS intranet!

The stream which during the past seven such events has been extremely stable and reliable, will also be tested out beforehand so you’ll be able to judge the quality of that audio feed. 

This page will be regularly updated with more news and information about what to expect from The New Year’s Eve BIG Broadcast 2017 and we can help your station celebrate over the festive period.

So, what are you waiting for????   Take all the hassle out of planning a schedule for New Years Eve and New Years Day and join our fantastic team from midday on New Year’s Eve 2017!
(We would really like it though if you could send us a few requests from your listeners before you do settle down to a celebratory shandy on New Year’s Eve!)
