A Hampshire man has found an old alarm clock that still contains his late mother’s voice.
23 year old alarm clock still has mums voice on it. He unearthed the clock while sorting out boxes in his garage. Comedy producer Ed Morrish, 41, took to social media to post his story, tweeting “When I went to university in 1998, my mother gave me an alarm clock where you could record your own alarm, so I told her to record it.
I’ve just found it, and it still works. She died in 2006, and this is the only recording of her voice that I have.” His late mother, Christine Morrish, can be heard shouting “Get up Edward”.
His two children, aged 11 and 9, had never heard their grandmother’s voice up till now. Mr Morrish said “I wasn’t shocked, really. I knew what it was as soon as I dug into the box, so I was just happy it still worked.
Lovely to be reminded of her voice and I laughed of course, because it was such a ridiculous thing for her to record.” Tom Lawton, the clock’s inventor, said after seeing the Twitter post “Oh my! This is amazing Ed. This was my first invention, WakeYoo. I’m so moved to hear this and hope you are well.” Mr Morrish added “
Nothing scares you awake like your mum. I cannot imagine it lasted past moving in with my now-wife in 2004.” After discovering the clock he changed the old batteries for new ones and was amazed that his mum’s voice could still be heard.
When he played it to his children they said “That’s what she sounded like!?” He finished off by saying “It’s going by the side of my bed so when the kids want to wake me up they can get my mum to do it.”
