Four more classic BBC Radio episodes from the anarchic, ground-breaking and hilariously inventive Goon Show.
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. Larry Stephens was a scriptwriter who wrote for several popular comedy shows in the 1950s, including The Tony Hancock Show and The Army Game. He is probably best known as co-writer of many Goon Show episodes, along with Spike Milligan. He died in 1959.

Spike Milligan, Peter Sellars and Sir Harry Secombe display why they are British comedy legends in this brilliant collection of episodes from 1957 and 1958. This is a classic example of the Goons doing what has made them the greatest comedy program in Britain's radio history. 'The Reason Why' is in a strange format as it is without the normal studio audience participation, and I often find myself cringing at the ramblings of a trio of gentlemen doing exactly what they usually do to hilarious effect, yet somehow with the subtraction of a studio audience, it seems like amateur actors' audition tapes. The three remaining episodes more than make up for this disappointment. 'The Treasure in the Tower' is an example of the goons' hilarious ingenuity through flitting between 1600 and 1957 (the year of the recording) with side-splitting results. 'The Plastacine Man' sees Neddie Seagoon trying to become a jazz superstar. He enlists the help of Grytpype-Thynne, whose plan to bury Neddie at Stone Henge in order for him to be discovered has hysterical consequences. The title piece, 'The Silent Bugler' sees British agent Capt. Hairy Seagoon trying to track down the elusive 'Silent Bugler'. Arguably the best on the cassette, the search for the Russian spy, and his time machine. This episode is incredibly funny, from the mission brief, through the sensitivity test from Colonel Bloodnok, all the way to the final showdown at the Dresden State opera.

What can you say about The Goons? If you have heard of them then you will already know how good they are, if you haven't well, they are a group of blokes who wrote a radio show that went out every week and had thousands of listeners in hysterics! The humour is very clever, frequently daft but always funny. Spike Milligan, Peter Sellers and Harry Secombe at their very best

THESE WERE A DELIGHT TO HEAR AS I STARTED LISTENING TO THE GOON DHOW AFTER THESE WERE MADE AND I WAS HEARING THEM FOR THE FIRST TIME. ONE WAS A BIT STRANGE WITH NO AUDIENCE BUT OTHERWISE BRILLIANT.

Laughter is th ebest medicine, and the Good show delivers time and again.
Takes me back a few years. Slapstick comedy at its best. Very good price and delivery was prompt.
