 Oh, my.  I'd nearly forgotten Robt J.  His morning program opened with a
couple of minutes of nothing but birdsong.  I didn't *really* want to get
up at 5am or 6, but he got me hooked by playing the Bach unaccompanied
cello suites every morning for a week one summer, & by then I'd got
accustomed to the radio alarm's early bird voices.
But Eeyore voice?  I dunno.
