Product description

Book Description

Four previously unreleased episodes of the archive radio comedy, selected by Norma Farnes, Spike Milligan's biographer.

About the Author

Spike Milligan was perhaps best known as one of the Goons. He went on to become one of Britain's foremost comic writers and performers. His bestselling titles include Adolf Hitler: My Part in His Downfall, Puckoon and Where have all the Bullets Gone? He died in 2002. Born in Oldham in 1923 Eric Sykes was first introduced to showbusiness whilst in the RAF and went on to write for hit BBC radio shows and appear in TV variety shows whilst writing for comedy greats such as Peter Sellers and Frankie Howerd. Although he is over eighty, Sykes continues to work, having recently starred in Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire.

Format: Audio CD
Two 1955 episodes and one from 1958, as well as one from 1958 that was not heard here until 1986 (an overseas episode) - and only then, broadcast the once! Find out who is attacking Henry Crun with a piano, and Moriarty's plan to shrink people to only 3 inches tall! Suspend belief, and prepare to have 2 hours of fun. Great stuff - recommended.

As with all Goon Show recordings there was just something about the whacky plots and silly voices to the different characters that caught my imagination. I became addicted to the show and through most of my youth and teen years I never missed a single broadcast. In later years I visited my Brother and his Family in New Zealand and to my surprise found it was still being broadcast weekly and that rekindled my interest. The same applies to each and every CD's that I am buying/

5.0 out of 5 stars The Goons: Rulers of the Airwaves (for over 8 years) 28 May 2017
By Hominid Philosophiae - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
More classic Goon Show episodes, reissued (thankfully) by the BBC. The liner notes are accurate: "From 1952 to 1960 the Goons ruled the airwaves...." If you're wondering how they did so, these 2 CDs will give you a glimpse into the wacky radio comedies this trio put together.
