Return of the Listen Again Service

Falmouth and Penryn Councillors Hear Listener's Plea

Listen Again

Cllr Brod Ross, Studio Manager Jerry Padfield and Cllr Chris Smith

Source FM listeners have been complaining that the station’s listen again service hasn’t been working properly since December. One of those regular listeners was Councillor Chris Smith of Penryn Town Council.

Frustrated by not being able to listen to his favourite shows Chris contacted station manager Matthew Rogers to let him know that he was willing to help resolve the issue by putting out an appeal on facebook. Within 24 hours Chris had raised £200. Backers included Mark Williams (Falmouth Town Council Clerk), Ciaran Clark (Actor), Cllr Candy Atherton (Falmouth Town Council), Andy Coote (Falmouth Business Club), Cllr Mark Snowden (Mayor, Penryn), Bob Bridges (Falmouth Rotary and Dementia Appeal), Andrew Edmonds (The Poly), Cllr Rowena Brock (Falmouth Town Council) and Chris Smith.

In March 2015 Councillor Brod Ross visited Source FM’s studios where he found Station Manager Matthew Rogers attempting to resurrect a dying podcast computer. When Clr Ross heard about the Source FM’s plight he pledged to offer £150 from his community chest, which combined with the offer from Chris Smith enabled station manager Matthew Rogers to purchase a new Mac Mini to host the service. 

Source FM’s studio manager Jerry Padfield wrote an original piece of software to host the listen again service and Miss Peapods Kitchen Café sponsor the service. You can now listen again to all your favourite Source FM programmes at www.thesourcefm.co.uk/podcast

Helford Regatta 2015

Helford Regatta


“If you only take the family to one regatta this summer, make sure it’s ours”, says Jenny Purdy, speaking for this year’s regatta committee. “It starts at noon on Saturday 8th August on Helford Passage beach, and we are planning to make it to be the biggest and best yet!”

There will be numerous rowing races, ranging from the serious to the ridiculous – try rowing whilst swapping t-shirts with your rowing partner half way round the course - not so easy!  As usual, plenty of stuff for the kids to get stuck into, with traditional beach and swimming races, a sandcastle competition, face painting, and Fancy Dress for the under 10s, the theme this year being ‘A Favourite Character from Book, TV or Film’, being judged mid afternoon.

Tug of War for the over 16s is always hotly contested, the raffle and tombola will be stuffed with great prizes, and the cake stall, barbecue and beach bar will ensure everyone is well fed and watered.  The RNLI hope to offer a display during the afternoon, and the day will be rounded off with music in The Ferry Boat Inn from the ever popular local band ‘Shameless’, from 9pm until late.

Like last year, all proceeds from the day will go to Falmouth RNLI, and the committee are really hoping to be able raise even more than last year’s record of over £2,200!
