Early Morning madness
Neil's stomach was turning this morning - have a listen....
.... you could have won a Pirate FM show bag if you'd known the answer.
After the news that the One Direction Wax Works in Blackpool have received hundres of fanmail letters... we wondered if you'd ever received any reply from celebrities you've contacted.
Julie from Plymouth has been tweeting with celebrities...

Spider's are Everywhere
Local cartoonist, Nick Brennan has captured the mood of September....we love it!
Neil says that handling Chilli the tarantula was great, memorable, but he wouldn't do it again - Tina on the other hand, would love to handle them again.
How about you?

St Breward's Community Primary School invited Neil and Tina to join them with lots of other Pirates at their pirate themed school dinner.
On the menu was Pirates Pizza or Captain Crunch Chicken, served with Cannon Curly Fries, Shipwreck salad, buccaneer beans and capsize coleslaw!
Dessert was Ship Ahoy Melon or Walk the Plank Shortbread!
These monthly themed school dinners seem to hit the mark with 49 lunch-time dining pirates for lots of hungry marauding pirates who told terrible jokes!
If you missed School Dinners on air, you can listen again:
Neil and Tina catch up the enthusiastic catering team, Tracey from Aspens Catering.
Arrrgghhhh me hearties - give us the grub!
To see all the photos from the school, check out the gallery here.

Brave listener, Joanne Graham, aged just 18, explained to Neil and Tina Crohn's Disease, and how it has affected her life.
Have a listen to learn more about the condition.
If you'd like to know more about the support from CICRA and their Family Support Day visit their website.
The Information Day is at Exeter Racecourse on Saturday 4th October and you need to book your place in advance.
Scared of Spiders?
Neil's been itching ever since we spoke to Karen who'd been bitten by a false widow spider.
So Nicola Congden from Falmouth has a cure - she's made an offer we weren't able to turn down.

Women on a Mission
So we all know that Tina an RAF veteran, having been a pilot and Intelligence Officer - so what are many of her former and current military colleagues up to in the name of charity?
It's the WRAFs on Tour charity relay and you can get involved.
So far, they've raised over £12,000 and covered over 850 miles, for RAFA and Macmillan Cancer Support.
Join the ladies at RAF St Mawgan on Friday 19th Sep at 0830 as they set off on the Camel Trail and to Padstow. And you can follow them on Facebook.
Listener Anne, gave us her expert advice on the species of shark spotted off the Cornish Coast.
And for some reason, she called Neil 'a girl' in an insulting way - have a listen!
State of the Roads
Peter's been in touch to congratulate Cornwall Council on commemorating the 100 years anniversay of WW1 with the state of the roads.
Do you agree with him?
But actually everyone has an opinion on the roads so it's set us a challenge to find out more.
And at last, after 10 weeks of the current Secret Sound, Phil Lovatt from Newquay put us, and Cornwall, out of its misery by correctly guessing the current Secret Sound, to win himself £300. He tells us his boiler has just packed up and needs repairing or replacing, so at least we know that he'll be warm this winter, thanks to Pirate FM!

We all know someone on a diet. So what works, and what doesn't?
Age Gap Love
And what would you say to a couple who met when he was 18 and she was 50 at Butlins? Does the 32 year age gap matter? Does it make a difference cos she's older? They've been together 18 years now - and you can watch the TV programme on Channel 5 tonight that meets the couple.
Don't forget you can still win £300 on the Secret Sound - did you hear the weekend clues? Check out the wrong guesses and set an alarm to call to enter just after 7am tomorrow - and EVERY SINGLE WEEKDAY you can win a grand in cash. Today's contestant, Ester Eva from Troon was heading off on holiday and could really have used the £1000 as spending money. Sadly she only got 5/10. How would you have done? Test yourself and call to register tomorrow on 01209 313900 from 8am.
