We're back!

30th June 2014

We're back!

Neil's flashing his tan, but Tina reckons her Cornish tan is just as good as his foreign mucky colour!

But is Neil looking a little plumper?  Tina thought she'd put it to the test... and produced the weighing scales.  All inclusive means all weight gain - 6 months of pain undone in 11 days.

Weight gain


Seems, Neil has also been people watching... always a great sport!

And kids have a new craze ... what are loom bands?


There's a brand new Secret Sound - you can play it for the first time at 0720 tomorrow - and a sneak preview of a clue is 'STOMP'!

Serena and Kevan from St Merryn win their dream wedding

13th June 2014

Win a Wedding winning couple
(L to R) Pirate FM's Holly Day, Kevan Ryan, Serena Hindmarsh, Rich Abbott from Abbotts Event Hire, and 3-year-old Marley.
A St Merryn couple have won a Cornish wedding worth over £20,000, thanks to the support of thousands of Pirate FM Listeners
Serena Hindmarsh and Kevan Ryan won Pirate FM’s Win a Wedding Competition in association with The Tregenna Castle Hotel in St Ives, and Abbotts Event Hire. 
Hundreds of couples from across Cornwall entered the competition to win an entire Wedding worth over £20,000, with products and services supplied by local businesses. The wedding will take place at the Tregenna Castle Hotel on Valentine’s Day 2015.
The competition culminated in a semi-final at the St Ives venue, where a number of finalist couples were randomly selected. These were then put to the public vote, with thousands of Pirate FM listeners voting through the Pirate FM Website.
Serena and Kevan, who have a 3-year old daughter called Marley, have been considering marriage for a long time:
“We were talking about just having a wedding in a registry office” Serena told Pirate FM.
“That was only because we thought we’d never be able to have a wedding like this."
Since appearing on Pirate FM, the couple have become local celebrities in their village.
“We feel famous in the small village of St Merryn” laughed Kevan.
Serena added: “Random people keep coming up to me in Padstow and telling me that they voted for us"
Neil Caddy from Pirate FM said: “Kevan and Serena are such a lovely couple, and we’re so glad that we’ve been able to make their dreams come true.
“Pirate FM loves being able to change people’s lives here in Cornwall, and we wish Kevan, Serena, and not forgetting young Marley a lifetime of love and happiness.”
Neil added: “We must also say a big thank-you to all the local suppliers that have supported the competition, and of course Tregenna Castle Hotel and Abbotts Event Hire, without whom none of this would have been able to take place."
Kevan added: "We’d like to say a big thanks to Pirate FM for giving us the opportunity, and for everyone that voted for us.”

Get Weathy with a Selfie

Get Wealthy with a SelfieBreakfast Selfie

Neil and Tina, lead the way, so show you just how simple it is to earn yourself some cash by taking a simple.  Here's this morning's effort, with producer Adam.

So take your #selfie, and listen to get #wealthy.

Find out how, here.  

Fussed, or Not Fussed?

It's almost the start of football fever, the summer of matches, of patriotism, highs and lows and Neil reckons its a time to come together for the greater good - Tina on the other hand, isn't fussed.

Caller Hayley's gone to some extreme measures to show she's fussed! Have a listen.


But what if you knew who was gonna win...

We introduce to you, Tai Lung, Cornwall Crealy's (allegedly) psychic Bearded Dragon, and no, that's not Tina!

See what happens when Neil meets her for the first time.

Neil and Tina spend a happy day at Cornwall's Crealy Great Adventure Park

2nd June 2014

After Tina came back to work with a proper grump on, Simon from Cornwall's Crealy phoned in and offered to give the guys a free day out at their great adventure park....

Tina was upset that she had to work over half term, so he said her children Mya and Woody could come too - but with all the great rides and animals on offer, were these going to be enough to put a smile back on her face?
