weird quirky stories by well known voices

Odd and creative short stories that are perfect for passing the nightshift, different narrators for each one, mostly british comedians

Better than on TV

Most enjoyable, as good if not better than on tv. The pictures are better in ones own imagination without the distraction of seeing someone reading to you.
