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 Seagoon as he is pronounced the rightful heir to the Austro-Hungarian Empire in The Case of the Missing Heir (11 January 1955). Find out Moriarty's dastardly plan to shrink people to only three inches tall in The Secret Escritoire (27 September 1955). Discover the identity of the villain who is attacking Henry Crun with a piano in The Dreaded Piano Clubber (26 December 1986*) and see if Moriarty and Grytpype's scheme to find a Charlie to drown in order to claim a thousand pounds bears fruit in The Pam's Paper Insurance Policy (24 November 1958). So enjoy these previously unreleased episodes, written by Spike Milligan and Eric Sykes, and featuring the inestimable performing talents of Milligan, Harry Secombe and Peter Sellers. *This programme was made for overseas broadcast in 1958, but not broadcast domestically until 1986. 2 CDs. 2 hrs 1 min.

Born in Oldham in 1923 Eric Sykes was first introduced to showbusiness whilst in the RAF and went on to write for hit BBC radio shows and appear in TV variety shows whilst writing for comedy greats such as Peter Sellers and Frankie Howerd.
