Hospital radio

6 transistor radios, 4 fluorescent lights, 3 songs

There was a time when every NHS hospital had a radio station. This piece rewrites three songs from the Salvation Army songbook, an instutiton that brought traditional Christian music to workhouses and hospitals. Both the radio and the songbook were links between the sociality of music, the practice of institutions and the solitude of healing.
