THE search continues for live presenters for every slot of Hospital Radio Yare, which broadcasts to patients in Great Yarmouth, Gorleston and Lowestoft.

Programmes manager Peter Burrage said: “It has been akin to the search for the Holy Grail to have all the broadcast spots filled with a live presenter. I have been trying to achieve this aim as an ideal for five years but this week it had came within one live show from a reality.”

Recruitment has been steady this year with most volunteers making it through the training with the younger people being well represented - one of the new recruits is Josephine Lawson - but the radio station still needs another presenter.

The stations' live broadcasting time is from 10am, after the previous day's repeat of the request programmes, until midnight. The overnight broadcast times and the few unfilled live times are delivered by the computers which put out popular music with the station identities and current news reports, cleverly aired by the wonders of the computer system on the hour every hour giving, 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
