Tina reckons it was all in Neil's head but he got himself into all sorts of bother yesterday over seeing a lady breast-feeding in a newsagent.

Luckily for Neil, listeners helped him out of his embarrassment:

2014 Local Hero Sasha Watson RIP

26th February 2015

Our sincere condolences go out to the family of Sasha Watson, her mum Michelle Bray and all the family at this very sad time.

Here's her mum telling us why she nominated Sasha. 

Neil and Tina had the pleasure of meeting Sasha on more than one occasion and pay tribute to her and her family and friends. You can listen again here.

If you'd like to join in the balloon release in memory of an extraordinary young lady on Saturday 28th February, meet at Gyllnygvase Beach at 4pm where there'll be a chance to share memories of Sasha, where there'll also be some fundraising going on to support her family.

And here's the video (1'23") of Sasha at Pirate FM's 2014 Local Heroes awards.

Flirting Tips

24th February 2015

Statistics show that women are not as good as men at realising when they are being flirted with...either this means that their flirting radar is not good, or men are bad at flirting?!  

So it sparked a discussion between Neil and Tina, where Tina accuses Neil of flirting on the phone and that she always notices when people flirt with him.


N&T and clarissaThey decide to try a social experiment, and Neil is petrified when he has to flirt with Producer Clarissa. How do you think he does?


Neil then decides to turn the tables and enlists the help of listener Malcolm, to flirt with Tina...have a listen


Not sure who the winner is in the flirting stakes, but it's pretty clear that Neil and Tina are both rubbish!

Secret  Sound Turnaround

So there'll be a new contestant tomorrow - Robyn Hill cleared up the £100 with her Secret Sound, to fox Neil, Tina and Cornwall.


In case you are wondering, it's the sound of the metal slider moving backwards and forwards on a Mega Sketcher - they got pretty close with the guesses but weren't exact enough.

There's a new contestant tomorrow - and if you'd like to earn yourself easy cash - then sign up as a future contestant - clearly Neil and Tina rubbish at this too - and it's all to your advantage!
