AV Department Ltd provides an SMS text service to the Edinburgh Sick Kids hospital radio station Radio Lollipop.
Here at AVD we do what we can to help. In the case of Radio Lollipop we currently help their listeners connect to the Radio Lollipop studio to make a request via our SMS Text service (Deletext).
Radio Lollipop provides Hospital radio services to the Sick Kids Hospital in Edinburgh. The SMS service allows the kids to make a request from their bed and also allows parents to send a request from out side the hospital. All they have to do is text the word ‘studio’ followed by their request to the short code 80010. The request comes up on their email system.
I popped along the other day to see how they operated… and they gave me an impromptu interview ! As well as a nice photo opportunity.
I am wearing my Hawaiian ‘Radio’ shirt which is covered in colour full Bakelite radio sets from the 40’s and 50’s. It seemed appropriate at the time.
This is a very cost effective way to allow an audience to stay in touch with you, and the service once set up just runs… The SMS Text service ‘Deletext’ is available to your events too, prices start from £100 for an event or £30 per month for a subscription. How much does radio Lollipop pay? Nothing! Well it’s for the Kids! As we said anything to help. 🙂
