Broadcasting to Patients in Reading's Hospitals Since 1957


“The other Martin” on Saturday nights, Martin Todman  came to HRR while in the second year of a radio journalism course in college in the mid-90s. He now works as a civil servant and in his spare time enjoys listening to 60s – 80s rock, pop & blues and reading the works of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle (though not necessarily all at the same time …) .


He got his first radio at the age of 4 and remembers listening to Rob Jones on Radio 210 and buying Hey Music Lover by S Express as his first-ever record. Now he nurtures a secret ambition to produce and engineer a radio play.
