BBC News TOTH Project

Manual BBC New TOTH Project

Ever since being a youngster on the internet, I've always enjoyed playing around with soundboards and especially when the (unofficial) Chris Moyles website came out with a program that assigned various sound effects, jingles and what-not to your keyboard keys, I started getting right into them.
