    Tales of New Albion (S2) - Jeopardy in Icing 1861

    In a change to the usual programme, this week we present a “highlight” from the career of Theodore Pilkington-Rhubarb. This particular show is from his early works providing and English commentary for Jeopardy In Icing 1861, a second-rate cooking programme from Gaul. In this episode there is a surprise result.

    Tales of New Albion (S2) - EAR-MOO B Part 3

    Tales of New Albion (S2) - EAR-MOO B Part 3

    Well tickle me sideways with a kipper I do believe it’s time for the ARC Light Programme to return for your aural titillation. This week on Slumbertime Stories we finally get to the end of EAR-MOO B from Tales of New Albion Volume 2. In fact that’s actually the end of the book, so who knows where we go from here. Oh and Listener’s quizzes are orf for now, at least. Shame. Probably going to be quite a short one then.

    For more about Tales of New Albion please visit www.talesofnewalbion.com and buy one of their fine books, if not the brace.

    Tales of New Albion (S2) - EAR-MOO B Part 2

    Wot ho and, indeed, ay caramba! It’s time for the ARC Light Programme to detune itself in real time once again. This week on Slumbertime Stories it’s the second part of EAR-MOO B from Tales of New Albion Volume 2. Beyond that is anyone’s guess. Another round of “Can You Guess What It Is That I’m Describing?” perhaps? Who knows?

    Tales of New Albion (S2) - EAR-MOO B Part 1

    Chin up old thing, it’s time for the ARC Light Programme to return once again. This week on Slumbertime Stories Theodore reads the first part of EAR-MOO B from Tales of New Albion Volume 2. What else? Well I suspect they’ll try and do another round of “Can You Guess What It Is That I’m Describing?” but I’m sure that won’t go wrong at all. Nope, not a chance bound to be fine.

    For more about Tales of New Albion please visit www.talesofnewalbion.com and buy one of their fine books, if not both. Indeed definitely buy both.

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.
