About the programme
MCMC Spoken AKA Megan Chapman is a critically acclaimed performance word artist from Cornwall. Inspired by the rap music of Eminem at the tender age of 15 and using the media of poetry, rap, freestyle and spoken word, MCMC Spoken uses her diverse skills and interests to communicate views and visions of the world both as she sees it and through the eyes of others. Since leaving University MCMC Spoken has gone from strength to strength, carving out her reputation as a poet, working with local producers and rappers to make hip hop tracks, hone her freestyling skills and perform at spoken word gigs both locally and across the UK and Europe.
Her love of poetry has led her to collaborate and perform alongside many other accomplished poets, and in October 2015 her poems were published alongside other esteemed Cornish writers. One of her contemporaries, Anna Murphy of Kneehigh Theatre writes, “Megan Chapman’s poetry is heartfelt and rhythmic. Playful and political, her Art is in the right place.” What fitting praise for such a delightfully challenging artist!

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
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
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.Abigail W, Falmouth
