Hi, my name is Mary Penley and I joined Radio Hillingdon in September 2007. I first came across Radio Hillingdon when I was an in-patient in the hospital myself listening on my bedside terminal! I have always loved radio so joining Radio Hillingdon is a way of giving back to the hospital that saved my life and of learning new skills. It is a great team of people, all giving their time for free to provide a service which we hope you enjoy. I like most styles of music including jazz and classical, and in my dim distant past I was directly involved with the rock music industry (my hearing isn’t 'too' much affected!). I also love meeting people and listening to their stories, and so enjoy taking part in the road shows and reporting on local issues.
I currently present the Tuesday evening Request Show from 8.30 -10pm, with a repeat show on Wednesdays from 1.30 - 3pm. I enjoy visiting the wards meeting patients, their friends and families and collecting requests.
Its great to get your feedback and know you appreciate what we do. Especially as in our 40th year, family members can dedicate a piece of music, then listen at home via our website streaming to the show going out live and hear their request.
If there is anything you would like to hear us play or tell us about, then do make contact and let us know your views and suggestions.
