The thrill-a-minute 3rd episode of West Midlands Hospital Radio, the nation’s top medically themed indie rock podcast is here. The only show that knows the quickest way to your heart is a unilateral incision on the upper left region of the sternum.
This week we career down to the cardio wing for 2hrs of serious heartcore. We’ve got pulsating punk jams, pumping pop songs, big beating bangers that’ll take your breath away quicker than a pulmonary embolism. We’ve got full hearts, broken hearts, bleeding hearts & the band Heart. Essentially, for 120 mins we are Heart fm. Except slightly less depressing. It’s marginal, but at least you’re not stuck in a taxi, already hungover, choking on the fug of Febreeze and the sound of Simply Red.
