Ken Barrie, for many years the voice of Postman Pat, died in July 2016. But he had a long singing career prior to voicing the children's TV series. For years he was part of the Cliff Adams Singers (Sing Something Simple) and then the Neil Richardson Choir.

Here's Ken singing with the BBC Radio Orchestra conducted by Neil Richardson on an edition of BBC Radio 2's String Sound from the mid-80s. The programme is presented by Sarah Kennedy.
