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!

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!Susan
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.David Hosking
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
