Since there are a number of readings in the collection still underway, I opened up slot 6 for a new one.

Thanks, Todd

'The Wind in the Willows' is fekin AWESOME Dudes!!!

I am so impressed! :D

:Peter: The edititing is amazing, and I think that the contrast between the female
voices and ours works really well! (particularly the little Hedgehog - adorable!)

A big round of applause to everyone involved - particularly the narrator! (Sweet!)

I'll volunteer to take 35 Benjamin Button if a reading with a British accent is OK.

Hello, Everybody Peepes!

Peter has told me that he is NOT interested in doing any more
'Wind in the Willows. (Fairy snuff!)

Would anyone else be interested in taking this project forward?

Andrew :D

Peter undertook (and has now completed) Chapters 3&4 of Wind in the Willows.

Section 6 is this collection was originally reserved in case the final file was longer than our 72min maximum - but since it was not, Section 6 is now open for anyone to offer any DR script they choose. There is no expectation that the new Section 6 script will be more of Wind in the Willows! In fact, I would encourage you or anyone else thinking of offering something for the newly open section 6, to look for an author we don’t already have in our collection!
