Source FM 96.1FM Falmouth & Penryn Community Radio

Source FM - Cornish Culture, Music & Information Falmouth & Penryn - Community Radio Cornwall

Source FM is a radio station for Cornwall, UK made by and for the people who live and work in and around Falmouth and Penryn. We’re very different from commercial radio, Source FM has a truly diverse schedule of music and chat shows for you to listen in to at all times of the day and night.  Have a nose around the Schedule and Presenters sections to get a feel for the creative volunteers who work here and to see what they have to say about their radio programmes. But most of all make sure you tune in to hear the magic of real Cornish radio.

Source FM can be whatever you want it to be because the station is open to local community volunteers of all ages and walks of life. We’re always looking for enthusiastic volunteers to help make Source FM a vibrant and interesting local radio station. Whether you fancy presenting the news, producing a documentary on local history, or getting involved with our ParkLive event then please get in touch with your local Cornish radio station by emailing: enquiries@thesourcefm.co.uk

I've produced some content for it (Source) during the lockdown, and I train students to make radio and help them get involved in Source FM, one of my PhD researchers uses it for his work too. It's a really important resource that brings people together and helps us get more people able to make audio.
