Publisher's Summary

Goon but not forgotten. From 1952 to 1960 the Goons ruled the airwaves, the most celebrated and influential clowns in the history of radio. GO ON, take a world tour with Neddie & Co as they get captured on military inaction in Africa and forced to swim the ice-cold Kupatee (there's nothing worse than a cold Kupatee); play tiddlywinks at the Palace (will this lead to a knighthood, Ned?); bombard the Russians in Crimea with a mighty cannon (and some terrible jokes); and don their kilts for a wee bit of Scottish bridge building. So savour four more classic capers from the wider wireless realms of those well-travelled Goonatics Peter Sellers, Spike Milligan, and Harry Secombe with guests Cecile Chevrau, John Snagge, George Chisholm, and Valentine Dyall.

Goon to lunch

Yes folks, the BBC presents the revolutionary talking-type all-leather Goon Show in all-new digital electonic format on I've got most of this stuff on my old steam-driven audio cassettes, but will now re-purchase the lot in modern-type mp3 format, for Ipod enjoyment. For those of you who already know the Goons ... 'nuff said. For those who are unfamiliar with the works of the true masters of comedy, please download any one of the files to try out, settle back with your headphones, and experience the magic of the microphone. Your life will be changed forever. Your parents/spouse/partner/siblings will probably look at you oddly from now on, and may well send you to a shrink after a few weeks of listening to this stuff, but that's a price you'll be glad to pay.
