The voice which has entertained the staff and patients at St Ita's Hospital in Portrane on it's own radio station has turned 60 years of age.
Rob Davis, who presents 'Love Songs with Rob Davis' every Wednesday at midday on the hospital radio station 89.5FM, also produces shows on a voluntary basis for the station.
Rob started out his career at a pirate radio station called ARD which was based in Dublin in the late 70s and early 80s when a young Tony Fenton was answering the phones and Ian Dempsey was starting his successful radio career.
He was the voice of Beaumont Hospital Radio every Saturday morning for 15 years until the station was closed down by hospital management in 2005. It wasn't long before Rob was back on air and since then has been presenting and producing shows for St Ita's Hospital radio.
More recently, Rob has presented and produced a Top 50 Christmas Songs of all time exclusively for the hospital radio network in Ireland and the UK with fellow presenter Phil Fagan. This show has been picked up by hospital radio stations across the world including Australia and New Zealand.
