Birch Radio Rochdale – Local Views, Community News and the Best in Music – 28 Years of Entertainment

Serving Springhill Hospice, Rochdale Infirmary and Birch Hill Hospital 24 hours a day

In the Spring of 2007, Birch Radio amalgamated with Bury Lions and community station HFM to form Roch Valley Radio.

Studios were relocated to Fairfield General Hospital, Bury and its patients and staff, along with those at Rochdale Infirmary and Springhill Hospice are now entertained 24 hours a day.

This area of our website features the history of Birch Radio in pictures, words and jingles.

We hope you find it interesting.
