Special Guests
Periodically Northern Air Hospital Radio is privileged to welcome special guests into our studio. We are grateful for their involvement and thank them enormously for their support.

Phil Keen
Phil Keen the former drummer with Wayne Fontana and the Mindbenders, joined John Bailey and Joe Sambrook in the studio. Phil told us how he first started in the music business. The first group he joined was The Spellbinders as they were looking for a drummer to join Ken Sugden and Johnny Mills. Ken Sugden's father was Lord Arthur Sugden who was then the Head of the Co-op. At that time the Co-op had their own brand of washing powder called Spell, can you see the connection?

John and Joe have struck up a great friendship with Phil - 3 old rockers together. Phil is still performing in club venues throughout the country, singing and playing guitar.

Pauline Renshaw
Pauline Renshaw, a real rock chick from the 1960’s joined us in the studio, which turned out to be very interesting. Pauline who is a singer in her own right, also sang as a backing singer with many groups during the 60’s. Pauline’s former husband Frank was a member of the Toggery Five, a band from Stockport. Frank moved on and joined Herman’s Hermits going on to write the song “Glory Glory Man United”. Their son Lee sang on this record. Phil Keen former member of Wayne Fontana and the Mindbenders,  played the drums on this song too. Hopefully Pauline will join us in the studio in the near future.

Roy Page
Roy Page, the Salford Poet and Musician joined Joe Sambrook in the studio. Joe met Roy when his classic car broke down and he called the AA to take the car to his local garage. The breakdown truck turned up and driving it was Roy. In conversation Roy told Joe he wrote and recited poetry; most of his poems are about Salford, his birthplace. Joe told him he was the chairman of a hospital radio station and asked Roy if he would come on to Joe's show to entertain the patients at North Manchester General and Salford Royal Hospitals. Roy came into the studios and did a 1 hour show with Joe, which was most entertaining. Best Wishes to Roy from Joe and the Team at Northern Air Hospital Radio.
