Biography

Steve presents Punky Reggae Party.

Steve was living in the Bristol area at the time punk hit Britain and soon became a big fan. He was lucky enough to see a lot of the major bands of the time, and he will be talking about his experiences of the time in edgy, late seventies Britain; the punks, the dreads, his mates: all will be revealed…

This is the way Steve saw it, not from any history books – most of the stuff you’ll hear will be from the original vinyl of the period. Hey-ho lets go!

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!

I've produced some content for it (Source) during the lockdown, and I train students to make radio and help them get involved in Source FM, one of my PhD researchers uses it for his work too. It's a really important resource that brings people together and helps us get more people able to make audio.
