Yes, I think that I've heard it every time that it's been on R4X. I was always a fan of Richard Griffiths

There's a restful quality to the narrator's voice. At first didn't get into it, but loved it when I got in step.

So funny that this is on. I was just listening to my King Street Junior episodes yesterday, and the next program....back on Radio 7, no less....was Mr. Finchley. Loved that one. Still do. :)
