The Great Kate Wait is Over

We celebrate the birth of the Royal Prince with Royal Music Variety.  And a baby themed music festival occurs, with a baby themed Brainteaser; Royal Baby £1000 minute questions and Carol Brookread won herself the 'Meet the Parents' DVD by identifying celebrity parents of baby Moses Bruce.J D and  Tina with  Royal  Prince

Neil and Tina, and then JD and Tina had to cope with also being parents in the studio, with their own little Prince.  Thanks to the Health Promotion Service Information and Resource Centre for the loan of the training baby.  Getting the baby attended to during the show proved challenging, not knowing if he needed feeding, changing or burping.

And it seems that only 1 in ten of us would admit to a partner that we have an ugly baby...listen to what Peter's mum did to him!

Why did Elaine want to sleep with Vin Diesel?Vin Diesel

This morning's Brainteaser was: What do 10% of homeowners do to feel safe?

Answers included installing alarms, having a dog and keeping an old bat under the bed - and we don't mean the wife!  But Elaine's answer tickled us.

 The answer was pots and pans!

Speedos or not to Speedos...and Holiday Complaints!

The debate rages on....

It also seems that holiday complaints are somewhat unusual!

Royal Baby

Clearly Prince William and Kate will look to our names as inspiration, so we are expecting (no pun intended) a Prince Neil and Princess Tina (NOT!), so we cover off the Royal Baby Names Top 5 lists, adding a few of our own and it seems some celebrities are choosing baby names when not even pregnant!

Murray Monday - the Best of British 8 July 2013

8th July 2013

The Best of British

Following Andy Murray's phenomenal win at Wimbledon, we learn why lucky number 7 may have been a factor.  It seems that the date was 7/7, and it has been 77 years since the previous British champion, Fred Perry won the tournament, it was 1977 that Virginia Wade took the ladies singles title, Murray is 7 days older than Djokovic, and Murray broke his opponent's service game in the seventh game of every set!

In celebration, we played the Best Of British tracks through the Breakfast show.

Celebrities in CornwallNeil and  Michael  Eavis

And we learned that Keith from Trewithen Dairy met his all-time living idol, Dame Judi Dench in St Austell's Tesco, whilst Neil became all star-struck meeting Glastonbury founder, Michael Eavis.  This did result in a drunken text from Tina over the weekend (she blames Mr Pimms), declaring that she might actually love Neil - turns out he's not worthy!!

Listen to the backstage gossip here.


Pin it to Win it

Your chance to win £1000 as you play Pirate FM's supercomputer.  Today, you can meet James Dundon with the Love Crew at North Country garage at Redruth.

US Independence Day - 4th July 2013

4th July 2013

Today's show took on a US theme to honour our American cousins.

The Brainteaser quiz was about US teenagers; the £1000 minute featured questions all about the USA and Tina tried out a few of her favourite US phrases...never did get around to asking Neil if he'd ever dated an American girl!

Blue Peter Badges

Did you ever earn one?  It seems that we're a talented bunch here in Cornwall.
