Brian Blessed OBE is launching his first ever podcast series in collaboration with digital radio station Union JACK.
Brian Blessed’s Bedtime Stories will feature Blessed with his globally renowned, hearty, booming voice, regaling listeners with his own take on some of the world’s greatest bedtime stories.
From Peter Rabbit to Paddington Bear, Brian will get listeners ready for bed with a ‘calming’ and often completely off-the-rails reading of some of the world’s most famous fairytales and children’s stories.
Suitable for children and adults alike, the podcast launches on Wednesday 9 September, with a new story released each week for a series of 12 weeks.
Speaking of the podcast, Brian Blessed OBE said: “As a shy and retiring fellow, this idea from Union JACK radio is right up my snicket. Listeners will be sound asleep before they even realise it! And not only that, but it’s my first ever podcast – whatever a podcast is? Is it like a fax? Gordon’s Alive!”
Brian Blessed’s Bedtime Stories is available from 9 September via major podcast channels, through the Union JACK radio app or online unionjack.co.uk.
