A good few years back, I was involved in a radio drama series for children – a ‘Cartoon for Radio’ called Ashley’s Worlds. I’ve made the whole thing available as a bittorrent file.

If you’re not sure what a bittorrent is, you should read the Wikipedia entry on the topic.

So – what do you need to know about Ashley’s Worlds? It was originally established to entertain my son, Jake. He was a fair bit younger then – but he still enjoys the series now.

All the characters are cats – and, well… it’ll make itself clear as it goes along.

The real Ashley was my cat, who sadly passed away last year.


Craig Parker – Ashley

Carl Bland – Bishop

David Weatherley – Tobias

Belinda Todd – Tabitha

Merv Smith – The Strange Old Cat

I’ve registered Ashley’s Worlds under a Creative Commons Licence so that people can be encouraged to listen to it without fear that they’ll be breaking copyright by listening.

Here’s the deal:

You are free:

* to copy, distribute, display, and perform the work

* to make derivative works

Under the following conditions:

You must give the original author credit.

You may not use this work for commercial purposes.

If you alter, transform, or build upon this work, you may distribute the resulting work only under a license identical to this one.

For any reuse or distribution, you must make clear to others the license terms of this work.

Any of these conditions can be waived if you get permission from the copyright holder.

If you know anyone with kids, then feel free to download. There are 100 short episodes in the .torrent file – that’s two years worth of weekly episodes as individual mp3s (128kHz).

It kinda jumped the shark towards the end, but they kept paying us to make it, so we kept making it after the wheels had fallen off a bit.

Anyway – enjoy. Download the .torrent file by clicking here.
