On weekdays RX Radio is currently broadcasting repeats and pre-recorded shows from 10:00 – 22:00, depending on the length of the show. Every second and last Saturday of the month we broadcast LIVE shows from 09:00 – 15:00, then from 15:00 -21:00 we play prerecorded shows and music in between.
The station transmits through the hospital’s internal television system to all wards and public spaces in the hospital; we also broadcast on this website.
Note that all the shows independent of the theme will always have a health feature.
Due to the nature of this radio station – by and for children, most of RX Radio Child/Young Reporters live with chronic illnesses, thus this programme schedule remains a work in progress and it is subject to change. However, you will be notified via our social networking sites if anything changes.
In addition, we have a total of 37 Child/Young Reporters from which 17 have permanent shows and features as reflected below. The other 19 reporters participate on pre-recorded interviews and live shows but not on a regular basis.
