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:
BRIAN WILEY has a big job coming up and he wants to tell you about it. He’s the Project Manager of a major restoration of the mosaic floor in St Padarn’s Church in Llanbadarn Fawr.
Work is due to start in the Spring, following the award of grant aid by the Heritage Lottery Fund.
And Brian is keen to get as many local people engaged with the project as he can.
So schools will be invited to come and watch the restoration and use it as a basis for projects of their own.
Likewise, post-graduate students at the university will be encouraged to get involved as part of a Working with History course.
The Llanbadarn floor is the work of the same man who designed the famous pictures on the tower of the Old College on Aberystwyth seafront.
