Description

Goon 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 - but watch out for flying custard puddings. It's the time of goodwill and custard so join the festive fun with Scrooge and Neddie Scratchit in A Christmas Carol (by kind permission) and follow the lost chords of The Mighty Wurlitzer hot foot across the Sahara. Or take a bow in the panto with Neddie Hood and soothing Friar Balsam in Ye Bandit of Sherwood Forest, and mix it with the military as the Goons make a patriotic pudding for a Combined Services overseas special in Operation Christmas Duff. Yes folks, it's a stocking-full of unmissable Goonery that will have you brimming over with Christmas cheer! 2 CDs. 2 hrs 1 minute.
