So a teeny little bit about me ……………… I relocated to Falmouth from Essex in 2013 having met my Cornish husband in London …… I appreciate life, talk a lot, love to laugh and am very optimistic!

Back in June 2020 and in the midst of lockdown I came across a post on Source FM social media looking for volunteers to learn how to do Radio from home. I’m always keen for a challenge and wanting to learn new skills so I eagerly signed up and have enjoyed every single part of the journey since thanks to Jerry and over the weeks of learning and practicing The House of Rachology was born.

So here I am! In my element and I can’t wait to share some of my Rachology world with you.

It has introduced me to lots of new people, that I may not have otherwise met. I've learned new skills and improved my confidence by creating a radio show and presenting on stage. And felt well supported through everything I've done with Source

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!


I just discovered your wonderful station! Wow love it....from Barbara Hepworth to the Buzzcocks! Very cool indeed. I grew up as a kid in Cornwall (St. Day and Grampound) in the 60's my family emigrated to California in 1967. My love for anything brewed in Cornwall is strong! I have spent the last 40 years as a Graphic Designer for TV and Print here in Los Angeles, I was also an online DJ for a local station here. So happy to have discovered Source!
