Neil and Tina try Zumba Dancing and Spinning

17th January 2014

After failing his 2013 resolution to get fit, and lose some weight, Neil was challenged by listener Helen to try out Zumba and Spinning, at Carn Brea Leisure Centre in Pool.

Tina came along for moral support (and a bit of a laugh at Neil's expense!)

How do you think he got on then?

Thank you so much to the lovely team at Carn Brea Leisure Centre for looking after Neil and Tina so well... and for not laughing at Neil (too much!).

Well done Louise. Here she is pictured collecting the cash from Pirate FM's studios in Cornwall, with Neil and Tina.

Welcome to 2014

2nd January 2014

Happy New Year!

Neil and Tina are back - along with the Secret Sound - now worth £200 and even easier and your daily weekday chance to win on the Thousand Pound Minute Quiz!

But first up, #morninghardone

No winner as no-one knew the body shape of 6/10 women - the answers were funny however, and Neil learned more about women in 15 mins than he ever knew before!

Have a listen!

  Neil Caddy's 2013 resolution - weigh in

Is it even worth making 2014 New Year's resolutions? 

Neil started the show believing he'd been 50% successful on Getting Fit (fail) and Losing Weight (success - he thought!) until the BIG WEIGH IN.

Tina has a family tradition of using a letter from the alphabet to help choose the New Year resolution. 2013 was 'N' and 'Never Say Never' which led her to Quad Bike tricks with the Kangaroo Kid at the 2013 Royal Cornwall Show, Monster Truck Driving with the Marie Curie Ladies Driving Challenge at RAF Porthtreath, dressing up as Princess Leia and Wonder Woman for the Totally 80s party. SUCCESS

This year the letter is 'O' and she's chosen to enjoy the Outdoors!  Hubbie JB has other ideas!

Have a listen!
