You know it's summer when ...

19th July 2016

The sun is shining, and we're banging out the summer tunes ...

So it made sense to ask Cornwall to fill in the blank:

You know it's summer in Cornwall when...

Here are your texts!

You know it's summer in Cornwall when...there are roadworks everywhere. starts raining. get red, itching, streaming eyes, and start sneezing.
...all the emits come down on holiday because they wear socks and sandals.
...Neil is wearing his Speedos. (Yuck!)
...the smell of barbecue fills the evening air.
...the rain gets warmer.
...every one is happier.
...people moan about the smell of farms. need to leave your pasty cool down a bit before you can eat it.
...the great summer festivals start.'s sunny one day then rains the next. cannot get into A&E for people with sunburn.
...the country lanes become jammed.
...the seagulls start stealing our food from our hands. can smell suntan lotion.
...Neil is strutting on the beach in his mankini. (Double yuck!) see the Flambards plane and banner in the sky.
...when people wear clothes they should not wear.
...a normal 10 minute drive takes 3 hours and 45 minutes.

What d'ya reckon?

Tell the Truth Day

7th July 2016

It's Tell The Truth Day, so, for one hour only, you could ask Neil and Tina anything!

Tina was worried "You don't get to my age without having a few secrets!"

Here's what happened:

Listener Emma was shocked by the revelation of how old we are!

Have to say, shocked at the age reveal this morning, really didn't think you guys were that old! Radio life is obviously good for you both 😊 Emma X

Not sure how we should respond to that!

David Williams on Cystic Fibrosis

5th July 2016

Listen to Tina Interview David Williams about his son, Albie, the discovery of his Cystic Fibrosis diagnosis, and the charity fund raising he's doing.

Hi, my name is David Williams. The 11th of January marked the proudest day of my life, so far. My wife Holly and I welcomed our first child; Albie Williams. He was born a healthy 6lbs 12 and we loved becoming parents. Three weeks after Albie’s birth we received a phone call which would devastate our lives; the results of the heel prick test confirmed that Albie had cystic fibrosis. Cystic Fibrosis affects not just my life, but that of millions around the UK, and worldwide. 

fifty2s mapOn the 24th September 2016, myself and my good friend Luke Barber are going to be taking on what is known as an ultra-marathon. We will be taking on 52 miles of Cornwall’s grueling coastline to aid the work of Cystic Fibrosis Trust.  

The aim is to complete this 52.25 mile coastal run in one day, as a continuous run, we are looking to raise awareness of an illness which has no cure and to raise as much money as possible to further pursue the work that this truly amazing charity work towards on a daily basis.

Thank you.
