Listener Survey

 

 

The last few weeks has seen a huge growth in the audience, and the last few weeks have seen Sleepy Time Tales use a different than normal format, so I’d like to hear from listeners new and older about the sort of stories they like. Do people prefer original stories like ‘Buddy’ ‘Southcliffe’ and ‘Mutewallow?’ or do people like classic readings, or a mix.

 

Please hit up https://survey.sleepytimetales.net to respond. The survey is 3 questions and should take under a minute.
