In the early 1990s I worked with Peter on ABC Radio National’s children’s drama Ticklepot where his songs were the foundation for stories based around Peter and his animal friends: Monkey, Snake, Frog, Tortoise, Koala, Kookaburra and many more.
It was hard to keep a straight face when Monkey (Henry Salter) and Snake/Frog(Edwin “Ted” Hodgeman) had Peter splitting his sides with their acting.
It was one of the joys of working at Auntie and great to work with Peter again and the fabulous musicians Phil Cunneen, Steve Todd, Steve Fleming and Sam Leske.
If you can get to his show it will bring back a multitude of memories for those of us that grew with or had children who listened to his fantastic songs.
Incidentally the award winning Ticklepot is available as an audiobook on Audible.
