Charlotte's Corpse

Cripes! It's every performer's worst nightmare! Did anyone else hear normally straight-laced-sounding Radio 4 newsreader Charlotte Green cracking up on the Today Programme this morning? Apparently some joker in the studio had whispered in her ear that a newly discovered, 150 year old recording of somebody singing Au Clair de la Lune sounded like 'a bee in a jam jar', and it all went downhill from there.

Take a listen. And I defy you not be be cracking up too by the end of it!

Sorry to hear that Millicent. Try having a listen from my ECR TV page - click on the grey link in the top right hand corner.

It worked fine for me and yes it’s very funny indeed, nice one Richard. Millicent you may have to fiddle with your master volume, usually you double click on the thing that looks like a picture of a megaphone in the bottom right corner of your monitor.
