It's the Goons - what more is there to say? Memories of times sitting by the wireless come flooding back - sheer magic!

Whilst a schoolboy I quickly became addicted to listening to the weekly broadcast of the Goon Shows and was a fan throughout the transmittion years. I bought a tape deck, open spool, and began to record them so I could listen to them whenever I wanted to be amused. I did however miss the musical intervals on the CD's. I still cannot listen to them without bursting out laughing.

Still beats some current comedians hands down. Good clean fun and some of the funniest lines/jokes ever written. More please.

Anyone who grew up listening to the Goons never gets over them! Listening to the three brilliant idiots is even funnier than the first time. Simple little snippets that make you roar with laughter, even if there is no one else around. I purchased the three CD's then ordered another set for my brother. This is comedy that never was before, and I doubt will ever be again. My family still say things like "he fell in the water!" We know what we mean and why it is funny. Make the most of this opportunity and stop being so serious.....laugh!

I gave this to my sister (43) as it reminds us of a childhood listening to our father recite The Goons.
She listens in the car with her 3 kids (10, 8, 5). They LOVE it too.

The Goons are what they are some people hate them. When I was a schoolboy fan in the 50's my Father thought they were 'just a load of silly noises'. They are, but what a unique collection. WE will never see their like again, Classic genius.
A wonderful trip back to my boyhood.
If you listen to it often enough to get the characters into your head and use your imagination you too could be hooked !

Great memories of listening to this on the radio when I was a young teenager! Oh dear doesn't that make me sound ancient.... Never mind I;ve had a good chuckle listening to this again and if you don't know the Goons give it a try
