A new Celtic Cornish radio programme is set to go live at 1000 hrs BST on Monday 19th July, 2010 and initially to broadcast for an hour weekly although it may extend at a later date.
Entitled `One and All – Speaking out with a Cornish voice’ , the programme will be about Cornwall and the other Celtic Nations examining the Celtic Languages and dialect, music and culture, campaigns and politics, place names and surnames, heritage and history and much more including a weekly competition.
The host of the radio show will be Mike Chappell, Secretary of the Cornwall Branch of the Celtic League who actively seeks people interested in being interviewed on any Cornish, Celtic or related matter. Branch Treasurer, Tony
Leamon will handle the studio equipment.
“This is a real opportunity to air Cornish and Celtic issues and concerns which are of direct interest to us all. I warmly invite anyone who wishes to contribute by way of an interview be they campaigner, author, poet, artist, sportsman whatever to please contact me and you are virtually assured of air time to publicise and project your issue. I am not a professional broadcaster but I intend to do my very best to bring to air all those issues the existing radio stations refuse to contemplate. I am very grateful to Station Manager Matthew Rogers for allowing us this programme”
Source FM which currently broadcasts from Tremough University in Penryn, Cornwall may be heard on 96.1FM or online at www.thesourcefm.co.uk/listen
