Radio Devon's lunchtime phone-in programme recently featured a contribution from David, a listener originally from Fernworthy.
Nowadays he lives at Chesham in Buckinghamshire, but he was born and bred here in Devon.
While talking to Michael Chequer, he mentioned the Devon Alphabet, a verse taught to him as a boy.
His rendition prompted a huge number of calls from people keen to get a copy.
We are happy to oblige. You can also listen to the Devon Alphabet using the audio links on this page.
