RESIDENTS are invited to see what goes on behind the scenes at a hospital radio station.

Radio Halton volunteers will be giving guided tours of their studio as part of a family open day at Halton Hospital on Sunday, September 7, from 11am to 3pm.

Visitors can have a go at presenting a short show, reading out what's on items and dedication.

Volunteer presenter Linda Redhead, from Beechwood, who joined two years ago, said: "I love a new challenge and volunteering for Radio Halton was definitely that. To learn something new is both exciting and rewarding."

Visitors will be able to see how automated software keeps the service going 24-hours a day, seven days a week.
