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 - and savour some of the special guests as Dick Emery, Kenneth Connor, Graham Stark and George Chisholm get in on the Goonery. Follow their fortunes as they trace the dreaded Spon, go bagpipe playing in the South Pole, march off to war ('Name your weapon.' 'I name my weapon Basil.') and attempt to find a cure for Neddie's poverty stricken wallet. Yes folks, it's the all-leather Goon Show, another quartet of cult comedy classics -
Spon (with Dick Emery), The Curse of Frankenstein (with George Chisholm), Who is Pink Oboe (with Graham Stark & Kenneth Connor) and The GBP50 Cure (with Kenneth Connor). So laugh along with those wireless wizards Peter Sellers, Spike Milligan, Harry Secombe and friends. They've found an apple. Their search is no longer fruitless.
