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
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
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!James
