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!”

Just a quickie to say thank you for keeping us entertained on our (rainy) holiday in Falmouth. We really enjoyed the variety of music on your radio station and loved hearing all the local voices.Jamie
Presenting Sports Hour on Source FM was fun, exciting and, being 5.00 on Fridays, was the perfect start to my weekend. I'm sure anybody could do it but it mades me feel like I'd really achieved something - something different to what other people are doing for my own fun and for the local community.Kim Conchie
Source FM has taught me so much about myself and brought out the creative side of me and I am so grateful for this it is a major release for me and playing my favorite dance tunes is also another release and I hope a release for the listener and they come aboard with me and other presenters too. The source has given me opportunities I would never of dreamt of and all those experiences have I think made me more rounded and good for character building. I am proud of myself, it's a personal conquest and don't know where I would be without some sort of involvement in radio it has truely been the making of me.Tash Berks
