Sophie’s Springboard Show

About the programme

In every how-to book is information about how to do what you probably already do, otherwise why would you be interested? This show looks at gateways into your chosen creative careers.

Original material by comedians and musicians and events in Cornwall will feature and Sophie will look at creative careers: music, writing, comedy, theatre, dancing (no personal experience), cookery, film, production, visual art, plus current and unexpected ones that your careers officer might not mention. Sophie will be bringing in guests to talk about what they do in these areas of work and how they got there. The main focuses of this show will be what other sources seldom cover: the secrets of job ads, submission protocol, what does silence mean, how long do you wait for a response? Selling yourself.

Sophie also brings a plethora of new music with her every week and when we say new we mean NEW!!!

Listeners say

This station is great. I listen in my workshop during the day in New Jersey USA . Keep it up. Dave. Hope to visit there someday.


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!


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.
