Bronglais FM 87.8


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:


November 9th PRUDENCE BELL has been both a magistrate and a Rector’s wife. In retirement, she busies herself supporting the work of the Church in Borth.

She is also author of a book (pictured) that tells the harrowing story of her Baptist missionary great grandparents’ fate at the hands of rebels supporting the Boxer Rising in China in 1900






November 16th                                TBC



November 23rd SIAN HISCOTT was born in Wales and raised in England, where she carved out a successful career as a teacher.

But Hiraeth got the better of her (and her husband) and in 2005 they came home, first to Mid Wales but finally to Ceredigion.

Nowadays, she’s an active member of St Michael’s Church and sings with the county Welsh Learners’ Choir. She is particularly fond of the traditional Welsh musical tradition, Plygain. If she has her way, you’ll hear what it sounds like…


November 30th DAVID POOLE spent 32 years as a dog handler with Warwickshire Police before retiring to Aberystwyth and regularly gives talks about it.

Since then, he’s been a council dog warden and has helped out at boarding kennels.

Today, he has another ‘flock’ as a Lay Reader in the three churches that make up the parish of Llanfihangel Genau’r Glyn.
