Goodmayes Hospital radio back on air but more presenters needed
Goodmayes Hospital radio is back on the air after days of silence last month during a financial dispute.
An internet streaming company stopped The Jumbo Sound broadcasting to the hospital, in Barley Lane, because of new payment demands.
But the problem has now been resolved so patients can enjoy music and chat shows in their wards.
Presenter Martin Levin said the radio station provides vital companionship and entertainment.
He added: “You always feel better listening to the radio and music cheers you up.

“People love having their names and requests read out.”
