Hilary BowickIf you've been a patient in North Manchester General Hospital or Salford Royal (formerly Hope) Hospital, you may have listened to our station or met our volunteers on the wards and had your favourite song played on our very popular evening request shows.

I joined the station two years ago and have had a great time meeting patients and cheering them up with music they enjoy. Last year the Station Manager and I dressed up as Father and Mother Christmas and, together with a group of volunteers visited all the wards, distributing tangerines and our own brand of lunacy. Don't know about the patients but we certainly slept well that night!

I was thrilled to be commended in the "Best Newcomer" category at the Annual Hospital Radio Awards earlier this year - the highlight of my hospital radio career so far!

When I am not at the radio I also sing in a lady's choir and I enjoy dancing.
