If I didn't work in Radio

19th August 2014

So If I wasn't the Pirate FM Apprentice what might I be doing? We've teamed up with Cornwall College and Duchy College to give the presenters a chance to try one of the courses offered by the Cornwall College Group. 

I tried my hand at the automotive course by changing brake pads and tires of a customer’s car at Cornwall College in Camborne. Watch for the video for yourself below.

Also watch videos of Neil and Tina trying engineering, James Dundon getting green-fingered with horticulture and Scott Temple at home in the kitchen here!

Allison claims a cool £1,000 in cash

15th August 2014

Allison Evans - 1000 winner

Clever-clogs Allison Evans from Falmouth claimed a cool £1,000 in cash - just by answering all ten questions correctly on Pirate FM's £1,000 Minute.

She took part in the popular competition, presented by Neil and Tina at Breakfast last week and decided to decline the opportunity to 'double her money' with an additional question.

Allison popped into Pirate FM's studios at Redruth to pick up the cash from Neil and Tina, where also presented a cheque to us - which was a portion of her winnings to The Pirate Trust.

She also revealed that the cash would help "soften the blow" of a recent car service, and she has also splashed out on some West-End Theatre Tickets ahead of a trip to the capital later this year.

The £1,000 Minute is back every weekday morning during Neil and Tina at Breakfast, only on Pirate FM.

Neil and Tina go to Hospital

Neil and Dee - eating chipsAt the request of patients, Tegan and AJ, nurse Deborah Charles from the Royal Cornwall Hospital Treliske contacted Pirate FM to invite Neil and Tina to enjoy school dinners on a fish and chip Friday - how could they say 'No'?!?!

It seems that teacher Dee's duties might involve feeding patients...from this picture with Neil!

First up, Neil and Tina chatted to Headteacher Dominic and Teacher Dee

... then Tegan told Neil and Tina about her interest in jewellery.


And AJ is a big gaming fan, as well as loving maths!

If you'd like to see more photos of the visit, please click the gallery link here.

And if you'd like a visit to your school, then again, make a request via this link.

School Dinners is taking a break and will be back in the new academic year for 2014/2015.

Happy Summer Holidays
