Second Childhood?!

I was delighted today to discover this gem, which I remember having first heard as a child. The reader, David Davies, was a relatively young man then, but it wasn't until technology had grown to include tape recorders, that the BBC issued a recording for sale, by which time, it's clear, that Mr Davies had aged- as had we all! But the recording still holds magic of a very special kind, which I hope you will appreciate... *smiles*


  1. I remember David Davies and sitting glued to the radio during Children's Hour ... that weird smell of dust from the set !

  2. Ah yes, the emories of the children's stories we were told. I can still hum the music that announced the radio Children's Request Session on Sunday evenings. Such magic.

  3. Lovely to see you again Jinksy. The elephant's child is delightful isn't it. Happy Birthday to your brother. He will be in company with my Larry who has also just recently joined the 70 club.


Curiosity Cats can leave a whisker here...but not before noting, please, that I choose to have an award free, tag free, meme free blog. But by all means, talk to me by email - I love to 'chat'...
