The first season of a wonderful radio show from the mid '60s starring some of the best talent of the time. Written by the Great Barry Took and the brilliant Marty Feldman who was taken from us far too soon Yes THAT Marty Feldman from Young Frankenstein of Gene Wilder Fame.
Round the Horne was silly but moved fast. Was topical but never offensive even though loaded with double entendres. I remember listening to this with my Mom after Sunday lunch every week when I was a little girl. I did not understand most of the jokes but I loved Jules and Sandy.
Brings me back to a time when we really could laugh at ourselves and we used to use our imaginations far more than we do now.
Loved every minute of this broadcast. Well worth the credit.
Where does Round the Horne rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?
Its not really a book, just a radio show, but very silly and funny at the same time.
What was one of the most memorable moments of Round the Horne?
Too many "one liners" to count. The James Bond parodies were my favorite.
Which scene did you most enjoy?
All episodes had great moments, worthy of another listen at least once more (may be two or three times to get the jokes I missed).
Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?
Laughed out loud more than once.
Any additional comments?
Innuendo certainly, but very gentle humor.

I have listened to RTH since the first live broadcast and as many repeats as I could find. Today, lstening to my download, I am still convulsed with laughter! There should be a statue.
It's amazing how far they could push the lines of acceptance and taste, back in the day. The episodes really feel timeless and aside from a handful of topical references and contemporary music, they do not really date. If you enjoy British comedy, this is as classical as it gets.
