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!
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
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
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
