Local Radio Day 2018

Pirate FM is proud to be Cornish – so proud we built a radio station here.

This Friday Pirate FM will join 100 other local radio stations across the UK to mark Local Radio Day.

We think being a local radio station should mean more than doing the bare minimum. We think it should mean employing local people, basing your business in the area it serves – and helping make a difference to the community we all live in.

So on the 25th we’re going to do just that, by giving Cornwall’s lost and lonely animals the best chance of finding their way home.

We'll be broadcasting from the Hayle branch of the National Animal Welfare Trust from 10am, because we think it's part of being a proper local radio station.

And we’re going to give one small business in the Duchy a chance to win a visit from afternoon presenter Johnny Cowling and even a short video of the occasion. Usually it's worth almost £1,500 but you can sign up to win one for free here.

Take a look at some of the other things Pirate FM and Cornwall have done to help make a difference to the Duchy… like our Local Hero Awards and the BABA Appeal to refurbish Treliske's ageing maternity unit.

Tune into Pirate FM on Local Radio Day, 25th May to help celebrate proper local radio.
