Biography

Val has a fine pedigree as a musician and singer in Cornwall and has a lifelong love of music ,most recently Americana and country. Singer/songwriters are a particular favourite.

A Falmouth lass born and bred, it is a dream come true for her to play DJ every week on the Source. Her show ‘Musical recipes’ is predominantly Americana, country and blues, with a smattering of R&B, but you can always expect something to get your feet tapping, something to tug at your heartstrings and something to put a smile on your face.

With bits of info and wit(guess who wrote this!!) between tracks this show

is always fun. We are amazed that she hasn’t won any awards!! So is she…..Ha Ha Ha!!!

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.

It has introduced me to lots of new people, that I may not have otherwise met. I've learned new skills and improved my confidence by creating a radio show and presenting on stage. And felt well supported through everything I've done with Source
