Some great corny jokes that still work!,
This review is from: "Round the Horne": v. 2 (Vintage Beeb) (Audio CD)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
I must admit that I sent for this as I had first heard the programmes with one ear whilst at my aunties on Saturday afternoons in the sixties! So a large part of the appeal was sheer nostalgia, as she died last year and I was feeling sad for those times together. As a kid, I thought they were a bit painfully corny and yes, they still are, but they still are funny and so genuinely good humoured (no pun intended!). What is really admirable is the professionalism and timing of the actors and the superb script writing, as well as the fact that obviously everyone was having such fun in the studio recording them. They are of their time, and I'm not sure what a younger audience would make of them. Still, I have tried to listern with both ears functional this time and can see what auntie so clearly loved about them. So thanks indeed to that other auntie out there for producing these!
