The Pirate Pete Show

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 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.
