Friday Favourite...

..A heart swelling Northern accent...

I make no secret of my love of a good Northen accent. I think it spawned from a childhood adoration of 'Coronation Street,' and an early introduction to Pulp.

Yorkshire accents are the best of them all - the sound of them makes my heart swell to about two sizes. I love listening to the softly spoken Jarvis Cocker best of all, he's wonderful.

I also love this mushy story spoken by Alex Turner, another Yorkshire boy I'm rather partial to. It's quite short and rather wonderful, so I suggest giving it a little listen.
