The Goon Show: Have A Gorilla Volume 6
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 - join Jim Rommel, Fred Hitler and Private Eccles in four more tales of frontline Goonery. Go hot foot to the desert for Rommel's treasure or try spaghetti-hurling in Crete. You, too, can be Monty's treble before reading Gunner Ned's memoirs. They'll make him a fortune (and a fivetune). Yes, folks, with the aid of the steam-leather microphone you can do all this through another crazy quartet of cult comedy classics - Rommel's Treasure, Ill Met by Goonlight, II Was Monty's Treble and The Seagoon Memoirs. So enjoy more classic comedy from Peter Sellers, Harry Secombe and Spike Milligan. Not to mention Hans, Neetz and Boompsadaisy. These jokes are now available on other breakable records.
