Recorded by Desmond Leslie
From the BBC Children’s Radio Series
“…It’s a fine musical story, and all SFX and weird sound was created by that well loved eccentric spitfire flying concrete mixing genius known as Desmond Leslie. Here Leslie is in fine form, using some of his sacrificial and avant garde musical techniques to full effect. …This was originally a BBC Broadcast with Agnes Bernelle as the narrator. Not only was she a sexy, dare I say exotic bird, but also an actress, friend of Deitrich and wife of Desmond Leslie.”
