Crohn's Disease

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.

Scared of Spiders?Tarantula

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.

Will you tune in tomorrow to see how they get on?

Sharks, Pot-holes, Women on a mission and a Secret Sound Winner

16th September 2014

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.

Sharkwatchneil selfie lydia

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.

Secret Sound

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!

Dieting and Age Gaps

15th September 2014

DietingWeight gain

We all know someone on a diet. So what works, and what doesn't?

Neil and Tina reckon they have a solution, well Tina does!

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.
