Hello, welcome to George by Headphone Story.
As a serving suggestion, the best way to listen to George is:
On your best headphones
In your most comfortable chair
At the golden time of dusk.

Guide Dog to
Marty was the most amazing host when Tom, Dan, Claire and Lillian were recording at Siobhan's house. He showed us his favourite toys and it was really nice to see him during his downtime. Tom was also so pleased to to see him at Kings Cross Station where he was working. He is such a good boy.
