This recording officially reached meme status long ago. In some radio circles the phrase "frozen peas" refers to a radio blooper. It's been parodied by SCTV, various cartoons, and even Monty Python. It was supposed to be a radio ad for Findus brand frozen Peas. Orson Welles took umbrage at the weak copy and took the producer to task on the recording. the tape ends with Welles frustrated, crumples up the script and says " In your depths of your ignorance, what is it you want?" Now at last it's been made into an animated video. Thank you internet.
