What you say about m4d Radio

Thank you…

Thank you for your radio for dementia. My husband sings along with the tunes with a smile on his face, even when his eyes are closed. He is getting so much out of the radio station; he is singing along this morning to the mix station.

It’s fabulous..

I was recommended to this station by an Alzheimer’s support worker. My husband has Alzheimer’s and I was struggling to keep him calm at times.

It’s fabulous not just helping my husband stay calm and listening and singing along, but it’s really helping me to feel calm. The songs from the 60s evoke such happy memories for me; the 50s help me shed a tear and we’re so enjoying the music that I’m playing this station now at all times instead of my usual bb2.

Many Thanks for helping out a very difficult illness with such powerful musical memories.

Absolutely brilliant

Thank you so much for setting up this radio station. I have been trying for ages to find a radio station which plays ‘our kind of music’ to no avail, but at last have found you. Absolutely brilliant. Long may it flourish.

So glad to have found you!

My husband has early stage dementia. We both love this radio station and have listened to all eras. We sing along (was belting out ‘My old man’s a dustman’ the other day…great fun) and often have a dance too. It gets both our memories working too when we try to guess the artistes. So glad to have found you!

an absolute godsend..

This station has proved to be an absolute godsend in our dementia home. It makes a massive difference to our ladies’ wellbeing and it’s so heart-warming seeing them recognise a tune or when I go into the lounges and there’s a singalong going on.

Real reach and impact

The judges felt this winner had real reach and impact across the large population. It was accessible for so many people, and had the potential to impact on people’s lives at a national level.

Thank you…

Thank you for this. I put this station on straight away to see what it was like. It brought tears to my eyes, when Keith started singing along. I will definitely log in regularly.

I will also be letting all our members know about your station in our next newsletter out next week. 

Many thanks

A gem of a resource

I have played this station in my car streamed from my phone for the last two nights. My Dad who has multi infarct dementia absolutely loved it and sang along quite happily. A gem of a resource.

Whoever is responsible for this radio station THANK YOU!

Whoever is responsible for this radio station THANK YOU! My mother has Alzheimer’s and music from 1930,1940 2nd world war has been our saviour but only on CD if you can find the right ones (Polesden Lacey, National Trust was the only place I could find the right CDs). There was nothing around on the radio, two years ago! Therefore, if not for my mum, then at least others will know where to go. Music is so important for people living with Dementia and their carers. It can defuse a tricky situation with distraction. Mum loves to sing!

… such a brilliant idea!

Set an internet radio up with my mum last night and tuned in, she absolutely loved it from the off. She was singing along to all the songs, remembered all the words, titles and artists! Clearly brought back lots of memories and she became quite emotional (in a happy way) So lovely to see. I would recommend it to anyone, such a brilliant idea!

m4d Radio is amazing!

m4d Radio is amazing! A crazy, diverse eclectic mix that I love! It’s amazing and it seems like you certainly achieved the goal of giving access to everyone with memory issues a resource that will be important globally for quite a while, I am sure.

.. just brightens up the day

I heard about M4D radio on Thursday and I used it on our dementia residents. The joy of smiles and just listening to them singing – we even had a dance. Just listening and talking about the songs brightens up the day
