2RPH Radio Song by Mrs Linda Hurley

Lend us your ears and we'll read you the world

We're here every day for the news to be heard

Listen to stories that the volunteers share

There's mystery and romance with love in the air

This radio service is heard every day

It started to help and has had a long stay

The call sign is 2RPH on your dial

This radio for communities has so much great style

Tune in and listen, follow printed word at home

With news and great music you won't feel alone

The presenters work hard to hone their skills

They love sharing moments it gives them a thrill

There is laughter and fun, you can listen and learn

There is great information for all to discern

We thank all the team who keep people in touch

The 2RPH service we love you so much.
