A glimpse into the impossibly glamorous world of Radio 4 Continuity. A famed and malodorous garment, the electrifying (polyester) Slanket of Con is ceremonially donned every night during Sailing By, moments before the late Shipping Forecast is read. It has been reserved for the exclusive use of Radio 4 Announcers.... UNTIL NOW.
Who will be next to don the coveted Slanket of Con?

The Slanket was raffled to raise money for Sport Relief 2012. Many thanks to everyone who bought a ticket.
