Here’s a full recording of The Piddington’s – a husband and wife team who gained worldwide fame performing a telepathy routine that bordered on the supernatural.

While listening to this vintage recording, consider that Sydney Piddington began to develop this act while he was interred at Changi Prison camp during World War II.
