The Goon Show
The Goons and More Guests Volume 18 A&M [CD-Audio/MP3 Edition]
Goon Show by Spike Milligan
Book DescriptionGoon but not forgotten. From 1951 to 1960 the Goons ruled the airwaves, the most celebrated and influential clowns in the history of radio. GO ON - take a world tour with Neddie & Co as they get captured on military inaction in Africa and forced to swim the ice-cold Kupatee (there's nothing worse than a cold Kupatee); play tiddlywinks at the Palace (will this lead to a knighthood, Ned?); bombard the Russians in Crimea with a mighty cannon (and some terrible jokes) and don their kilts for a wee bit of Scottish bridge building. So savour four more classic capers from the wider wireless realms of those well travelled Goonatics Peter Sellers, Spike Milligan and Harry Secombe, with guests Cecile Chevrau, John Snagge, George Chisholm and Valentine Dyall. They're the toast of Mymushlike. What's Mymushlike? The back of a bus. 2 CDs. 2 hrs.
