Since May 2004 we'd all like to see a Friends Reunion - right?

So our very own James Dundon was challenged to take part in the Ice Bucket Challenge... and of course, James being James, things couldn't be simple... he had to go one further!

So If I wasn't the Pirate FM Apprentice what might I be doing? We've teamed up with Cornwall College and Duchy College to give the presenters a chance to try one of the courses offered by the Cornwall College Group.
I tried my hand at the automotive course by changing brake pads and tires of a customer’s car at Cornwall College in Camborne. Watch for the video for yourself below.
Also watch videos of Neil and Tina trying engineering, James Dundon getting green-fingered with horticulture and Scott Temple at home in the kitchen here!

Clever-clogs Allison Evans from Falmouth claimed a cool £1,000 in cash - just by answering all ten questions correctly on Pirate FM's £1,000 Minute.
She took part in the popular competition, presented by Neil and Tina at Breakfast last week and decided to decline the opportunity to 'double her money' with an additional question.
Allison popped into Pirate FM's studios at Redruth to pick up the cash from Neil and Tina, where also presented a cheque to us - which was a portion of her winnings to The Pirate Trust.
She also revealed that the cash would help "soften the blow" of a recent car service, and she has also splashed out on some West-End Theatre Tickets ahead of a trip to the capital later this year.

This morning we cast our minds back to the 16th August 2004, when idyllic Boscastle hit the headlines when it was devastated by flash floods.
Iconic images of people being airlifted from the roofs of their homes were beamed across the world, as Boscastle became the top story...
But luckily, no-one lost their life on that fateful day - thanks to the fast response of the emergency services and RAF.
Boscastle has now recovered, and is once again a thriving community - regaining it's beautiful charm... a million miles away from the devastation it once saw back in 2004.

So yesterday, we woke to the very sad news that legendary comedian and actor Robin Williams had passed away overnight, at the age of just 63.
Throughout the day, we played tributes to Robin including a special show at 2pm and 7pm including music made famous in his films.
By popular demand, we've been asked to offer our special 5 minute montage of favourite moments to listen again - which you can do here.

Neil and Tina's Secret Mission
Running up to Air Day 2014, Neil and Tina went behind the scenes at RNAS Culdrose. Sadly, Neil's cracked rib, prevented him taking part in some of the challenges...but we still hurt him, with all the laughter as you'll see from the videos.
Tina re-lives the 'horror' of a fitness test
Thanks to 'Dreckly' for helping out.
Walking the Plank
It's a bit much to ask Tina to walk the plank, but she didn't have any qualms about it!
You can see all the photos in this gallery
Flying the Seaking Simulator
And the piece de resistance, was flying the Royal Navy Seaking Helicopter simulator. At last, something Neil could take part in...
But how did they get on...have a listen:
If you want to catch up with any of the items, then you can listen again below.
So that's it for another year!

Neil and Tina go to Hospital
At the request of patients, Tegan and AJ, nurse Deborah Charles from the Royal Cornwall Hospital Treliske contacted Pirate FM to invite Neil and Tina to enjoy school dinners on a fish and chip Friday - how could they say 'No'?!?!
It seems that teacher Dee's duties might involve feeding patients...from this picture with Neil!
First up, Neil and Tina chatted to Headteacher Dominic and Teacher Dee
And AJ is a big gaming fan, as well as loving maths!
And if you'd like a visit to your school, then again, make a request via this link.
School Dinners is taking a break and will be back in the new academic year for 2014/2015.
Happy Summer Holidays
