Biography

With a pen sharper than James Brown’s wardrobe and a voice as controversial as chorizo in a paella, this vigilante reporter has turned the world of music journalism on its head, shaken it by the ankles and stolen its lunch money. Whether he’s tearing up the festival circuit or exploring the deviant peripheries of popular music from behind a radio desk, this young firebrand is sure to appall the NME-conditioned generation with his acerbic critiques and visionary expositions.

Prepare to be awoken during his Gates of Dawn program which airs every Wednesday night from 9.30pm-11pm.

Just wanted to say what a lovely surprise it was on Monday morning when I first discovered your channel on my tablet. I am an artist and I love to have music and humour playing in my studio. The programme that I discovered was called the Monday Morning Comedy Collective with a presenter called Colin Leggo . A lovely lively entertaining programme with lots of humour and a good variety of music. I think a big strength of the programme is the warm personality and the professional style of the presenter. Colin Leggo was often using funny voices which I found really funny but he also encouraged the listeners to contribute to the programme. He was also interviewing a comedian which was interesting and entertaining. I will definitely catch the Colin Leggo show again and explore the other Source programmes.

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.
