Mumbles Mice

Got a post from the CFZ with the CFZ yearbok with an interesting article on Swansea Bay strange creatures by Oll Lewis . Interesting stuff on the Beast of Baglan and Swansea Jack but missed out some very interesting tales from the area like the Gower sea serpent. Another article revealed the existence of the Singing Mouse from Mumbles in 1937. This is even weirder than it sounds as it went on radio!

Is there a recording of the singing mouse?

Male mice do sing http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/sci/tech/4395664.stm perhaps it just had an exceptionally low voice?

Or did it sound like the mice in Bagpuss?

I don't know if there is a recording. It was 1937 so there might be it was a big thing at the time with US singing mice and British mice all sininf on the radio!
