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

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.

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!

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!
