Always thought Pam Ayres was professionally Cornish. She must have lived there, there is no way she's got an Oxfordshire accent, no matter how west West Oxon is.

EDIT - just looked it up. I'm wrong.

Hers is nothing like a Cornish accent.

She's been known to mention her origins more than once on various radio programmes. That's how I know she's from Oxfordshire.

Fair enough.

I'll put my hands up here and admit that I actively avoid Pam Ayres on the radio or any other broadcast medium.

I've never understood the fuss about her - she's a poor poet, terrible actress, and her voice is right up there with Janet Street Porter.

Harmless, and very knowledgeable. I can do without the rustic comedy stuff. If I want that I listen to The Archers. Or used to.

Wouldn't really call his accent strong.

Thinking more along the lines of the old joke, the punchline of which went something along the lines of...."have you come here to die?"....."now I gut 'ere yesturdie".

A running joke that is guaranteed to make the wife laugh until she cries is sexy talk in a brummie accent.

It's all sorts of wrong

On a point of order, Noddy Holder is not from Brum. Oh dear me no. Walsall -- Black Country. Like Jerome K Jerome.

"FTFY" - since I'm not a mod I had to do it in a quote, as opposed to adjusting your actual post to compensate for my own failing.

In other words, he has cloth ears.

In reality we all sound like C3PO, of course, especially Everso. Except Myky (Peter Cushing) and RedArmy (R2D2).

Hold on, hold on.  C3PO - is that the tall one or the short one?
