What’s the name of the soundbite where the man with the British accent is reading the fairy tale of the Bush family? I want to know so I can download it.

These mixes really bring back memories of the lost decade 2000 – 2009. RIP.

It’s Alistair Cooke reading one of his very last “Letters From America” for the BBC. He died that year.
