It's FRIDAY!! 

That's means McFly Day - the Friday song and this...

Weird Items in your Carcarrot in the boot

And after statistics show that those 'baby on board stickers' can cause accidents we asked about the weirdest items in your car.  Neil even offered to buy an air freshener prize for the best one.  We were overwhelmed with your responses, but there was one clear winner!

Listen to Neil Purcell from Camborne



And we have a BIG announcement on Monday - here's a sneak preview for our website users.

Back on Monday, when you wake up.  Make sure you're listening!

So what can you buy with £1?

£1 to workA banana, pint of milk, a pencil...but that pound, when combined with everyone else's across the Duchy, can make a huge difference to The Pirate Trust which has helped people like Elijah who now has a bike trailer so that with his complex medical needs, means he still gets to spend time outside, or the Falmouth and Penryn sea cadets, whose safety boat has been funded in part by the Pirate Trust.

On Friday the 6th September, we'd like it if you to could bring a pound to work (or school or lunch), if you can afford it, for the Pirate Trust.

Perhaps you could be the one that collects the pound coins on the Pirate Trust's behalf and if you'd like to tell us about it, then sign up here

Neil will try to get to a few places and sy hello and a personal "thank you".

Thank you.

Neil and Tina are back!

Catching our eyes in the news is this little video clip. So we asked where have you been thrown out of?  It seem's Neil had a few little 'misunderstandings' in his time, including being ejected from Mr Peggerty's when someone else was being liberal with the drinks, and from a gatecrashed wedding reception in Birmingham after dancing with the bride - well that's one way to get noticed!

Dan from Helston had his story too.  Have a listen.

Brotherly love!

Today's Star guest

Sir Richard Branson

Tina was lucky to speak to him about the reunion of his Virgin Atlantic Challenger 2 crew onboard the refitted yacht.


And he was nicer to Tina than Neil is!
