Earlier this year, Harrogate Hospital Radio’s Happy Hour won Gold at the Hospital Broadcasting Association Awards for Best Show with Multiple Presenters. The show is presented by Mark Field, Daniel Wilson & Ollie Thomas, bringing feel good music, feel good news stories and a lot of laughter to listeners.
The judges said “within seconds of listening they wanted to be part of this show and friends with all of the presenters. A compelling, feel-good, upbeat show, where the presenters sound like they’re loving every second of it. The judges agreed the entry was warm, fun and funny with great story telling. A tonic for those listening.
