So pin back your lug holes and listen to this tale of utter catastrophe.

    Tales of New Albion (S2) - Crash Again (Again) Part 2

    Tales of New Albion (S2) - Crash Again (Again) Part 2

    A might huzzah is let forth from the mouths of men, women, children and semi-sentient dolphins as Tales of New Albion returns once again. This week there are the manifold delights of the second part of Crash Again (Again) read as always by the voice, legs and teeth of Theodore Pilkington-Rhubarb. On the downside there is also another chance to win 3 shillings with the Listener’s Quiz – “Can you guess what it is that I’m describing?” Where you have to guess what it is that Theodore is describing.

    Tales of New Albion (S2) - Crash Again (Again) Part 1

    This week on the Light Programme it seems that Theodore is still unavailable, due to an ongoing crisis of character. So, once again, we have the multi-award winning journalist, writer and think-tank contributor, PG Basilthorpe-Stilton OAE condescending to the populace. This week, presumably, reading someone else’s storyin a morbid fashion. Send help.

    Tales of New Albion (S2) - The Battle of Turnip Field

    Tales of New Albion (S2) - The Battle of Turnip Field

    This week on the Light Programme it seems that Theodore is unavailable, due to an unfortunate lapse in moral fibre. Instead, at very short (and expensive) notice, we have the journalist and writer PG Basilthorpe-Stilton OAE educating the nation with regards to the first Great Martian War, by reading an extract from his memoires – The Whole of History and How I Wrote It. Frightful bore.

    Tales of New Albion (S2) - Welcome to Aeropa

    Tales of New Albion (S2) - Welcome to Aeropa

    Where do all the airships go? It’s a good question, and we’re about to find out as it’s time, once again for Slumbertime Stories on the Light Programme, and this week it’s a story called “Welcome to Aeropa”. It’s read as usual by Theodore Pilkington-Rhubarb and there will probably be some sort of listener phoning in. Or perhaps there won’t, it’s getting hard to tell these days.

    All music by Charlotte Savigar.

Great fun

The amazing, often bonkers characters (cats too) and situations invented by Mr Callow and expertly brought to life by Mr Pilkington-Rhubarb are fabulous, fun-filled adventure stories. I look forward to hearing more.

Top draw!

A collection of short adventure stories set in an alternate future past, penned by Daren Callow and brought to life by the voice of great raconteur Theodore Rhubarb Pilkington with an original soundtrack by Lady Charlotte Savigar. Expect mad scientists, secret missions, dashing heroines and journeys to exotic land
