   YFT 0101 - Volume One

      Five Tales

Swine Harries - A cautionary tale for those disposed to put their hands on things that belong to other folks.  Especially when they bite off more than they can chew. This tale does not end well. Try not to laugh!

A Company of Giants - We can only imagine what might have happened if Potter Thompson had raised the horn to his lips and blown a blast

Jack and Jill - A young lass in the bloom of love, a mean father, and her honest swain who presses onward in his quest to his name, make his fortune, and make her his bride. What an adventure!

The Witching Hour - You must not listen to this tale on an empty stomach or just before bedtime unless you are fearless!

The Yorkshire Bite - Yorkshire Folk are famous for having high opinions of themselves and this tale shows they are justified

YFT 0103 - Volume Three

"If you have tears, prepare to shed them now!"

Three Tales

  

  • The Farndale Hob - If you are unfamiliar with Hobs or Hobbs, this tale about Gray's Farm in Yorkshire's Farn Dale will tell you all you ever need to know about them - and more.  

  

  • The Best Laid Plans - A true tale concerning an important visitor to Yorkshire and the loss of a treasure, due to an unusual errand, a tired old horse, a rickety old cart, a bumpy old road, and a shirt-sighted carter that ought to have been retired but he, in common with his contemporaries, had never heard of the word and would not have fathomed it if he had.  There is another object more important than these listed, but you will come to that shortly into the tale.

  

  • The Dreadful Tale of Sarkless Kitty - This Yorkshire Tragedy that is more compelling than Romeo and Juliet, more mystifying than The Scarlet Claw, more heart wrenching than Love Story, more poignant than Yentel, more inspiring than Les Miserables, and has more twists and turns than Hobson's Choice.  That's saying a lot, for sure, but be prepared to revisit your scepticism after you have listened to this enthralling story at least five times.

YFT 0102 - Volume Two

Six Tales

  

T'Soberin'O' Billy Bray - Some of the honest sober and industrious swear that they have seen the bargeist although not many live to tell the tale.  Billy Bray can boast that he did, but does the bargeist boast to his fellows about his encounter with what turned out to possess greater power than himself?

The Canny Cobbler of Huddersfield - 'Tis said 'tis a true tale. But whether 'tis or 'tis not, such is the nature of man that what is not enough for one can be far too much for another., and the twain meet in a humble cobbler's shop.

True Love - A powerful knight is determined that a beautiful but impoverished baby girl shall not live to marry his son as fate has decreed.  But no matter where he turns his hand against her a greater power than Fate so moulds the lives of the pair that for every base trick the knight unfolds, Providence works an even greater miracle until the Grand Finale.  Guaranteed to warm your heart and urge you to forswear from the wickedness of trying to destroy the happiness of innocents.

      2.  Jemmy Hirst & Why I Will Never Like Him - Hirst was a true Yorkshire Eccentric in so many ways that it is impossible to count them all.  King George took a strong liking to him, but for all his incredible talents and good characteristics he did one thing that bars him from my list of those I admire and honour
