Story Time: Nine O’Clock Horses, Episode 14

In Episode thirteen we shared Amelia’s impressions of the family she is about to join as an Au pair. The Devereaus’ are not what she expected, particularly Robyn who seems to be an enigma. Amelia consoles herself that she in the United States for a reason; to find out more about Colin, her fiancé who is now with the American Military in Vietnam.

The Scottish butler, Jeremy, becomes a good friend, even though Robyn Devereau has warned Amelia about being overly friendly with him and the mysterious Canyon Devereau whom Amelia has yet to meet. She is impressed with the house and the grounds and loves the open space that surrounds it, and, although the two boys have little respect for her, she is intrigued with Robyn. The lady of the house seems to have a special interest in one of the men who delivers groceries every week!

Story Time: The Lion and Albert

Mr. & Mrs. Ramsbottom visit the Zoo. There are Lions and Tigers and Camels. Old ale and sandwiches too.

Curry Coast Community Radio is pleased to present The Lion and Albert, a short story read by Angela Ewing

Dear Listener,

“The Lion & Albert,” is a humorous monologue written in 1932 by Marriott Edgar and recorded for radio by Stanley Holloway. The second part, ‘Albert’s Return’ was written in 1933. Listening to this monologue, you will hear the emphasis is on the last word of each verse’s second line. It was intended to be read aloud with a Lancashire accent for the humor to be obvious.
