The listening corner

Listen to Charlie’s own stories and songs

“Here we are – all of us – riding on a big, bright, beautiful blue ball: Earth – our home. And as she spins her way, every day, through the blackness of space, so there are people, like me, who travel from place to place trying to put a smile on someone’s face – by bringing along a story and a song; by bringing along a little bit of crickcrack.” – Charlie

This photo of Earthrise, as seen from the moon, inspired the song  “What a ride!”

You can hear the song on this page. And you can read Charlie’s own stories when you click here.
