Daphne Oxenford is still with us

[Later. Daphne Oxenford died just before Christmas 2012. The Daily Telegraph ran a full obituary.]

I was pleased to discover today that Daphne Oxenford - as in "When the music stops, Daphne Oxenford will be here to speak to you"; as in Listen With Mother - is still going strong at the age of 91.

Here is a Theatre Archive Project interview with her from 2005.

Take it away, girls...

Thank you Daphne Oxenford for your wonderful story telling on 'Listen With Mother'(Along with Julia Lang).

Your renderings left me with the ability to perceive through the eyes of a young child for which I'll always be in your dept.
I'm 67 now but your magic will never leave me.

I remember this text as "When the music stops, Daphne Oxenford will be here to speak to you"...

Cheers,

That's what it says - now I have corrected the spelling.
