Radio Horton came to life on 7th July 1964, with the immortal words: “This is Radio Horton calling.” The station’s founders were journalists Ted Hanson MBE and Graham Wilton and ever since those humble beginnings, Radio Horton has gone from strength to strength.
In 2014, their Golden Jubilee year, the station was awarded the honour of becoming the Town Mayor’s chosen charity for 2014. And last year, Ted Hanson won the prestigious Hospital Broadcasting Association’s (HBA) Lifetime Achievement Award.
With more than 51 years under its belt, Radio Horton remains patient’s bedside friend. The Stations’s tag line is “The Station That’s Good For You,” and from all the positive feedback they receive from patients and their families, it appears they are indeed helping to cheer them and keep them in touch with what is going on around them within the hospital, Banbury and in the world at large.
Radio Horton hosts a series of key, high profile, outside events during the year, from the Katharine House Midnight Walk, to Banbury Canal Day and the Santa Fun Run. Where their team of dedicated volunteers reach out to the community and broadcast back to patients in hospital.
The station can also be heard by clicking the Listen Live button above where the internet streaming links patients in hospital with friends and family throughout the world via the web. You can also tune in via Smart Phones through the Tune In radio app.
