                                                    Glenn Lee dies suddenly                                   

It is with great sadness that I have to report the sudden death of my good friend Glen Lee. Well known in Elvis circle's and for his fantastic charitable work, and in particular his long relationship with Beaumont Hospital Radio where for many year's his well known voice and musical expertise could be heard over the airways of Dublin City, Glenn will be sadly missed by all his family and friends R.I.P.

FIFTEEN years ago, Northsider Glen Lee found the cure to his yearnings to get into broadcasting he joined Beaumont Hospital Radio.

Finglas man Glen, who is originally from Ballybough, joined the station when it first went on air in September 1988 and is now its longest serving broadcaster.

When you delve into Glen's background, it's perhaps not surprising that he ended up back in hospital, so to speak. At the age of two he was diagnosed with with tuberculosis (TB) and spent the next twelve years in Cappagh Hospital. he even made his confirmation and communion in hospital.

It was a difficult time but you just got on with it recalls Glen, "I suppose I was destined to end up back in Hospital. I was looked after  very well there and I see this as a way as giving something back (he works at the radio station on a voluntary basis) "The station provides a vital service and is a great communicator between patients and the outside world" he adds

Glen currently broadcasts three hours a day (11am-2pm)  five days a week on Beaumont Hospital Radio 89.5 FM. From Monday to Wednesday, he presents Country Classics', which consists of a light country and Irish music mix along with the Broadcaster's own touch of magic, On Thursday he presents Golden Oldies' show and Friday, it's the show he Loves the most 'Remember the King', a tribute to Elvis Presley.

Glen says: "According to The Irish Elvis Presley Fan Clubs website, this is the only show of its kind in Europe to broadcast three hours of Elvis every week. I absolutely love doing it."

Prior to joining Beaumont Hospital Radio, Glen was with a number of pirate stations where he was bitten by the broadcasting bug. His first show on Beaumont Hospital Radio was on Saturday afternoons from 2pm-5pm. The show became so popular so quickly that he was asked if he wanted to switch his show to a weekday morning slot. "I jumped at the chance and haven't looked back since," he says. (Glenn at the decks)

Throughout Glen's 15 years at the Northside hospital, he has worked as part of a team of volunteers who have made the station a huge success. In that time, he has also been credited with inspiring many young men and women, who started their broadcasting careers as volunteers and are now involved with local and national broadcasters.

Although Beaumont Hospital Radio is not officially means tested by the JNLR figures, it is known locally that Glen has an avid listnership every weekday morning. His ongoing commitment to the Station is renowned through out the hospital and the surrounding areas of Arlane, Coolock and Beaumont.

Glen Lee's charisma has helped to brighten up many a patient's day in the last 15 years and through his shows he's aiming to add his own brand of therapy for the foreseeable future.

Unfortunately in December 2006 when returning from a charity show Glenn became suddenly ill and passed away. R.I.P.
