This is quite old, but what I find interesting is not just the quality of the very early sound recording, but the Radio 4 news reader's reaction to it. She gets the giggles because of the ridiculousness and lack of communicative merit to the recording, ironically, in turn losing her own ability at signified speech. I find the comparison between the two examples of non-sense worth thinking about


  1. sure you probably heard this at the time, but I could listen to this all day: James Naughtie's choking sounds as he fights the take over bid by his unconscious. Superb.

  2. Haha! Thats great Basia! And the other one...that was so funny.

    Freud...when you say one thing and you mean your mother.

    Sorry..bad joke.
