Song dedication from Middle East

A DEDICATION request from a member of the Armed Forces serving in the Middle East has been received by Boston’s Pilgrim Hospital Radio.

The station played The Rolling Stones’ Paint It Black for a patient, as requested on email by a relative currently stationed overseas.

It is, however, not the furthest-flung dedication the station has received since it launched its email service (studio@pilgrimhospitalradio.org) - last year, one came in from New Zealand.

Programme manager Simon Robinson said: “It’s good to know people abroad are thinking about their loved ones and we can put their thoughts and feelings across.”
