RB FM is a hospital radio station based at Bronglais Hospital in Aberystwyth. But it reaches out way beyond the wards and is popular with listeners across the area.
Established in 1970, it is run entirely by volunteers and offers a 24/7 mix of music and chat for the benefit primarily of hospital patients, visitors and staff but also for the local community.
Every Thursday morning, the Brunch Show between 10am and Noon features guests from the local church community. This is the schedule for the next few weeks:
