The latin lover
Father Reginald Foster, the Pope's own Latinist has a weekly show on Vatican radio, they are always informative and often hilarious (Real player required).

Father Reginald Foster has the most annoying voice and delivery I think I've ever heard.
johnny novak, your link made me want to break something. Well done.

I guess you either like the whole palsied night-club singer schtick or you don't.

I heard about this on A Word in Your Ear on Radio 4 earlier today. Was only half listening, but there didn't seem to be much Latin going on...can't listen to this due to lack of Realplayer.

"Now you can take fascism yes or no- but the Latin there is first class!" Classic! God, this guy is great!

Great link.

I only wish it was my old Latin teacher, the great Mr. Michael "Rock" Hudson, doing this. The only man ever to quote Cicero to me on a ski-lift. Ah, memories.
