Publisher's Summary

In more than 500 episodes of Parkinson between 1971 and 1982, Michael Parkinson interviewed some of the greatest show-business talents. In Parkinson's interview with The Goons, Peter Sellers and Harry Secombe remember their "love/hate; let's get one over the BBC" relationship. Spike Milligan joins them from his sick bed in Australia, where he was suffering from the Lurgi. Slipping instantly from accent to accent, Yorkshire to Yiddish, Bluebottle to Bloodnok, Guinness to Gielgud, Peter Sellers, in his individual interview, relates showbiz anecdotes. Amid the hilarity, the authentic voice of Peter Sellers emerges, as he talks about his childhood, early career, and achievements.

Funny and sad

Would you consider the audio edition of Goon Show to be better than the print version?

Its a pity Peter Sellers died so young.


Any additional comments?

Some funny moments but it is better to listen to a Goon Show.

The Goons interviewed By Parkinson

If you are into the Goons or Peter Sellers this is a must have. In fact I would rate it the best material on those subjects available. I never realized what a genius Peter Sellers was - I always knew he was funny and clever but genius I hadn't realized till now. Extremely funny, informative. I can see I will be re listening to this at least once a year.
