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 Tuesday 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 6th The biker’s back!
ANDY BROWN is making a return visit to the microphone for another session with the Fellowship of Christian Motorcyclists.
November 13th ANNALISA BIAGINI, on the other hand, is very much a newcomer.
She’s only recently moved to Aberystwyth and has been so touched by the warmth of the welcome that she wants to talk about it, and about herself.
Her particular passion is music and since arriving in the summer, she has already joined several local choirs, includiung the one at Holy Trinity Church.
If you ask her nicely, she may even give usa few bars…
November 20th STUART BELL, meanwhile, has been on his travels again.
The retired Rector of Aberystwyth is a regular visitor to the sacred sites of the world and his latest adventure took him onn a cruise to the western Mediterranean.
Plenty to see; plenty to talk about…
ALUN EVANS is no stranger to The Brunch Show. One of his jobs as a curate in the Llanbadarn group of churches is to help arrange these Tuesday morning conversations.
This week, he’s decided to step up to the collection plate himself.
Good timing! Sunday will see the start of Advent, the month before Christmas and no-one’s better placed, surely, to explain why it is so important to Christian communities.
