Last Friday I was given the ridiculously huge opportunity to cover the Pirate FM Breakfast show for Neil & Lucy. One of the biggest shows in the UKRD group, on the number one commercial station in Cornwall… No pressure.
Not only was I covering the show solo, but I also had the responsibility of launching a new mechanic (Secret Sound Power Hour) as part of the station's long-running competition, The £5000 Secret Sound.
I’m pleased to report I didn’t break anything, nothing set on fire & Pirate FM is still on-air! And despite the nerves and endless preparation, the show went well all things considered.
This was a huge landmark in my career to date, I can’t thank Neil & the team at Pirate enough for having the faith in me, giving me the chance to ‘hold down the fort’.
I'm really looking forward to visiting Cornwall again soon, along with providing further on-air cover for Pirate FM.
