Southern Sound Hospital Radio is applying for a Restricted Service Licence (RSL) to broadcast for 10 days in August on the FM frequency. The company currently building the new South Glasgow Hospital, Brookfield Multiplex, very generously donated £500 towards this venture & this will go a long way to help covering the costs. The broadcast will tie in with the latter stages of the Commonwealth Games in Glasgow & to this end Team Scotland Para Athlete Megan Dawson-Farrell came along to the hospital to accept the cheque from Brookfield on our behalf. 
Southern Sound Hospital Radio thank Brookfield Multiplex for their generousity & wish Megan all the best for the Commonwealth Games this summer.
