Even if you're not an ardent fan (and there are many), chances are you're familiar with the jolly theme tune to BBC Radio 4's long-running drama The Archers.
But did you know that the inspiration behind the much-loved soap is chocolate-box hostelry The Old Bull, situated in the picture-postcard village of Inkberrow in deepest darkest Worcestershire?
Furthermore, this little slice of radio history is now up for grabs, at the rather reasonable asking price of £90,000.
The pub is already something of a pilgrimage for many of the legendary soap's fans, who are more familiar with it as local Ambridge pub The Bull.
And just like its fictional counterpart, The Old Bull has been the centre of village life for generations and has seen its own fair share of local dramas. But after six years at the helm, landlords Lyn Fishburn and Mike McCarthy have decided to ring the bell for last orders for the final time.
Mr McCarthy told the Daily Mail (opens in new tab): 'We have achieved what we wanted to achieve and we have always enjoyed the link with The Archers.
'It's a traditional pub and we get a lot of tourists taking pictures. They come here because of the BBC soap.'
Miss Fishburn added: 'They [tourists] tend to arrive expecting to see the cast behind the bar, pulling their pints, expecting the radio programme to be played out here.'
The pretty timber-fronted pub dates back to the 1600s and is rumoured to have once hosted the bard himself, William Shakespeare, when he allegedly travelled to collect his marriage certificate from nearby Worcester.
As well as the pub's illustrious history, any new landlord may also have to accommodate the odd BBC photoshoot.
Seems like a fair deal to us.
