About the programme
Pirate Pete was marooned on these shores several decades ago after the crew of his ship rebelled and threw him overboard next to Black Rock because he refused to sing shanties and wanted to sing The Rolling Stones songs instead. Luckily he was given passage on the good ship Source FM where we let him play his own choice of songs every Friday morning he also sings along to them to his merry hearts content.
Also know as the Jammy Dodger Pirate Pete picks his songs with great care and precision often several minutes before he plays them for his adoring fans (and mortal enemies). Shunning the traditional pirates parrot for a pet dog Pete is unconventional as a pirate but arrrr you’ll love it – we do!
Just stumbled across this station whilst scrolling - loving it! Listening in SE London xHeather
Brilliant Station, Chargrilled, Making Paper Boats, Miscellaneous Debris and Konquerinz Soundz my absolute nevermiss shows. The whole station is unique and never dull. So lucky to be able to tune in, shame the station drops around Helston way on a drive out on a Sunday we always shout nooooo !!! Have pulled into laybys to hear the end of some tunes !! Keep up the good work.Andrea
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
