Programmes Mic live door sign

Radio Halton provides several different types of music, so hopefully there will be something to suit everyone

We broadcast 24 hours a day and have live presenters in the studio between 10:00 and 22:00 (10am to 10pm) with news on the hour.  We need more volunteers to provide additional programmes during the day.  At all other times we play a wide selection of music and public service announcements

You can hear 'Thought for the day' thought talks from the hospital Chaplain, Phil Turner, ChaplainRev Phil Turner, also from

Rev John Beaney, Rev Vivien Gisby, Terry Hawes, and Frank and Sue Wilding at around 09:10, 13:10 and 22:10 daily
