Aside from a very brief foray into Hospital Radio many, many years ago (which ended when it was revealed you had to have been at the station for at least a year before you could actually play any records or speak on air) Steve Cannon has never really thought of doing this sort of thing. Now, thanks to Al Green and Source FM he is part of the Rainbow Source show and he really loves it!
Steve has lived in loads of different places and had many different jobs, from retail management to being a qualified nurse before joining Devon and Cornwall Police in early 2004. He now works for The Intercom Trust as a help and advocacy worker to support Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Trans community members across Cornwall. He participates in a number of projects including Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual & Trans Partners And Communities Together (LGBT PACT).
The purpose of PACT is to highlight priority area for any community and the LGBT community has priorities including Community Safety and Social Support. “We heard about Source FM and we felt that it would be a great new way to get that sort of info out to people and promote LGBT life in Cornwall! Not to say I wasn’t totally terrified when we started but we are now hoping to get more people from the local LGBT community on the show, to learn some new skills and have some fun!”

It's done a lot: broadcast live performances of a local poetry group I belong to (Falmouth Poetry Group), broadcast radio dramas created by my students, interviewed local politicians (including me) on subjects of local interest and thus contributed to engagement in local democracy.Tom S, Falmouth
