Ian describes himself as ‘an eclectic kinda guy’; he is a fan of science-fiction, especially Doctor Who, Star Trek and Star Wars, but also loves documentaries too. His musical tastes range from classical to modern pop, and ‘a lot of stuff in between.’
He also enjoys old movie serials and old time radio, but strives to keep his finger on the pulse of life. Ian says that ‘it’s that weird mix that makes me interesting to listen to, yet different from just about any other radio presenter out there on the dial.’
Previously, Ian has appeared on hospital radio at the Royal Cornwall Hospital and the City Hospital back in the 1990s, so he may be a familiar voice to some of you, but even if you’ve never heard him before, Ian hopes you will enjoy what you hear on the show, and that you’ll make it a regular appointment in your weekly calendar.
I used to be a Duty Manager and Team Leader at a supermarket in Truro. I have had many years experience in radio doing Hospital Radio at what is now CHBN, but was known as Truro Hospital Radio when I was there. I also spent some time working at BBC Radio Cornwall, and later I worked with CSV Media, helping to train people to work in Journalism and Radio Production.
I also spent a couple of months with Radio Plymouth. I’ve had a number of other shorter jobs and roles, ranging from being a bartender, to a directory enquiries operator. Overall, I’ve had an eclectic life so far.

I don't know how I found you, but I'm so happy I did. I listen to 96.1 online constantly. Love the variety of music and all the presenters. I'm in Eureka California and have been able to visit Cornwall once. I left my heart there and want desparately to return. Until then, at least I can listen in. Cheers!Susan
Just wanted to say what a lovely surprise it was on Monday morning when I first discovered your channel on my tablet. I am an artist and I love to have music and humour playing in my studio. The programme that I discovered was called the Monday Morning Comedy Collective with a presenter called Colin Leggo . A lovely lively entertaining programme with lots of humour and a good variety of music. I think a big strength of the programme is the warm personality and the professional style of the presenter. Colin Leggo was often using funny voices which I found really funny but he also encouraged the listeners to contribute to the programme. He was also interviewing a comedian which was interesting and entertaining. I will definitely catch the Colin Leggo show again and explore the other Source programmes.David Hosking
