Blood Moon

Hi. Bill Allerton here from Urban Tiger Radio. The following story is VERY EXPLICIT so if you have tuned in any of your children to listen to the Wind in The Willows episodes, then now is the time to tune them back over to 'Childrens Hour' right here... https://soundcloud.com/user-68415326 This podcast contains scenes of violent, predatory, sexual activity. If you are offended, don't say that you weren't warned. The rest of us, enjoy a day at the beach.


The Open Road

Okay, so this isn't an adult story... or is it? Over on Urban Tiger Radio 2, 'Childrens Hour' (@user-68415326) I have started to serialise the original Kenneth Grahame text of Wind in The Willows. This is Chapter Two, 'The Open Road'. This the last one I shall post on here because I think you have come to expect something a little more 'hard-edged', but if you have any children between 3 and 15 years of age then treat them to a listen here then steer them over to 'Childrens Hour' on iTunes...


Wind in The Willows

Okay, so this isn't an adult story... or is it? Over on Urban Tiger Radio 2, 'Childrens Hour' (https://soundcloud.com/user-68415326) I have started to serialise the original Kenneth Grahame text of Wind in The Willows. This is Chapter one, 'The River Bank'. If you have any children between 3 and 15 years of age then treat them to a listen here then steer them over to 'Childrens Hour' on iTunes or Stitcher.com for many more hours of safe, enjoyable listening. Cheers, Bill Allerton

Here it is! Chapter 5 of Berlie's incredible tale of growing up. Enjoy! More chapters to come each week so set your reminder! Look out for a reissue of this novel coming soon to all good bookshops and online suppliers. I'll let you know when it's out.


The Chosen

Hi, this is a short sci-fi story if you like that sort of thing! If not, we have plenty of other offerings on Urban Tiger Radio for your pleasure. I think sci-fi begins with an open mind and explores the things that seem inconceivable now yet have their roots somewhere in our past, in instincts, particularly survival. As a species we have adapted and survived more changes over the millennia than we can ever consider. Most of those changes were gradual, and a fitting subject for...


Chapter 4: Granny was a Buffer Girl

Hi. This is chapter 4 of Granny was a Buffer Girl b y the famous author, Berlie Doherty. More to come! Enjoy the story so far... Bill.


Sprung Maple

Hi. This is a fantasy short story. I don't know where the inspiration came from, but I need you to imagine you find yourself inside of a dance hall frozen in time by a curse. The story is about on whose head a curse lies, and it's also about a deep and enduring love and how the men of successive generations of the same family deal with the responsibility for that love. I hope you enjoy! Bill.


Pieces of Eight by Heeley Writers Side 2

Hello again, and welcome to Side 2 of the spectacular display of talent that was Heeley Writers back in the late 80's and nineties. This mix has it all, poetry, humour, political incorrectness, short stories, inexplicable poetry (in some cases)and even a couple of things performed very naively by myself, Bill Allerton. Enjoy the past! When you think about it, it's all you have for certain... apart from Death and Taxes...

Chapter 1: Granny was a Buffer Girl

One of my favourite authors, Berlie Doherty, has given me permission to publish her novel for early teens, 'Granny was a Buffer Girl', as an audiobook using material I have rescued from a previous tape recording. This is Chapter 1 to be followed by the rest shortly. This book is about to be re-released in paperback and I'll let you know when that happens. I am releasing it here because I think it has great appeal for adults too, as a piece of social history beside the fact that it is...


Pearl 5: Roy Blackman in conversation with Urban Tiger Radio

This is the one interview that I have been waiting for... As you will hear, Roy has been a friend of mine for many a year and we have always supported one another in the poetry/writing circles in Sheffield. I am glad that I finally managed to pin him down long enough to record him. If the volume is a little variable on this track it's because I'm using previously recorded material, some of it at a live venue. Don't let that spoil Roy's telling of his colourful history.


Circles in The Frost

Circles in The Frost is a sensitive take on teenage years and anxieties, both natural and those brought about by a sudden loss. Friends and cousins, Glenys and Shirley shared fathers who were identical twins... but there the similarity stops... and envy threatens to bring the whole relationship crashing down. Accompanied by music from Martin Bragger at his most sensitive and soulful with the song... Never Let Go... written for someone very special in his life.

This will be out there soon and don't forget where you first heard it...
