Seraphim Anikeev worked on the radio. Thus, in the radio show “Dimka on the High Seas” by V. Korostylyov and M. Lvovsky, he played the role of a cook named Error-Not-Trouble. He had such a song: "Come here, Here is preparing food, Here in huge cauldrons fries, Here in the pan soars, - Anything will cook Mistake itself is not a trouble. ” Alas, they say, this, like many other classic children's radio shows, has been jammed. And it was a real nettle (unlike most books and movies of the postwar period). He recorded on records. So, “The Song of the Elderly” by I. Dunaevsky from the “Substitute Player”, he performed together with his friends in the Operetta Theater V. Volodin and V. Alchevsky.
