Castle Mead Radio … 

Britain’s Smallest Hospital Radio Station, broadcasting from the heart of Hinckley


Castle Mead Radio began broadcasting to the patients and staff of Hinckley & District Hospital in November 1990 in the town centre.

Starting life in a broom cupboard, the station quickly expanded and in 1994 opened new studios in the roof space above the day unit in the hospital.

In 1996 the station was involved in help bringing the town its first taste of its own commercial radio station, Fosseway Radio.

These were trailed from the stations very own studio's and in 1998 Fosseway radio was awarded its own FM licence.

In ???? we added our service to the Hinckley and Bosworth Community Hospital on Ashby Road and have since expanded into some of the town centre G.P Surgeries.
