About the programme

Every Monday afternoon on Source FM, Ian Beaumont hosts a 2 hour show full of music, entertainment, information, and sometimes a guest or two.

Musically, you can expect to hear almost anything on the show, from classical to contemporary, from the 1950s until today, from the well known to the unknown, from world renowned celebrities to local up and coming artists. We can play almost anything on the show.

We can also talk about almost anything too.  From global affairs and the world of politics, to the silliest news items of the week, and all points in between.  We’ve even brought you breaking news on the show before.

We’ve already had some great guests come in on the show, talking about everything from religious affairs to mental health.  No subject matter is off-limits.

I do all this on the show, with a smile.  I also update the weather and travel, and look at what’s happening in the Falmouth and Penryn area, as well as my own jovial wit and banter.

The show airs every Monday between 4pm and 6pm on Source FM, on 96.1 FM across Falmouth and Penryn, and online via www.thesourcefm.co.uk/listen.  Source FM can also be heard via the UK RadioPlayer, via the iTunes Radio Directory, and via the TuneIn and UK RadioPlayer apps on your mobile.  There is also a Source FM app available for Android phones.

And if you miss the live show, you can now catch up with the Source FM Listen Again service.

And even when the show isn’t on the air, you can interact with the show as well.  You can like our Facebook page, or add our Google Plus page to your circles.  You can also tweet the show too and follow us for programme updates and much more besides.

So join me, Ian Beaumont Live & Direct, every Monday, 4pm to 6pm on Source FM.

Listeners say

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.

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.
