A fully-equipped, on-site radio station that broadcasts to patients' rooms
Radio Lollipop is a fully-equipped, on-site radio station that broadcasts to patients' rooms via Texas Children's television system. It is a 100% volunteer-driven program that involves children in play and activities, using the sounds of radio to help stimulate the children's imagination.
Volunteer deejays create excitement among patients by playing Top 40 hits, taking call-in requests and putting kids "on air" to actively participate in the magic of radio. Each on-air broadcast also features games, art projects, storytelling and contests in which kids win prizes. Radio Lollipop makes kids feel important by giving them a voice and a choice during their hospital stay, a time when they may have few pleasant choices.
